SJ, you do surprise me... I'd have thought "Gare Du Nord - What's Up" might be a little to repetative for you Laughing

Deliciously different. High risk? Probably. Wonder if anyone will play it?!

Can't make my mind up on the Little Mix track. I quite like it, but something is telling me not to play it (beat seems um er...). Anyone else have any thoughts?

Couple of nice tracks on the list SJ - thanks.

I'm glad I surprised you.. Very Happy Gare Du Nord happen to be my favourite band at the moment with such tracks as "Matter Of Time" and "Dish Of The Day" etc. This one is a bit quirky but I suspect I'll give it a run out at some point and watch reactions. Smile

I know what you mean but I think it will catch on. Mind you I haven't actually danced to it yet. Jury is still out. Cool

I think it's a difficult track for most MJ dancers. The reason is that, although it's 4/4 time, it's played eight (bass) beats to the bar, boogie woogie style. This is the same as Candyman by Christine Aguilera.

The difference is that Candyman is 86.5bpm but, because there's 8 bass beats to the 4 beat bar, sounds like a fast but jiveable 173 bpm. However, the little mix track is 115 bpm, but sounds like an unjiveable 230 bpm. And, to make it even more difficult, sometimes the little mix track plays 4 bass beats to the bar - this makes it sound like the beat is slowing down, which it isn't. Probably a good Charleston track though.

I won't be rushing to play it!

My personal favourite from this list, that is new to me is 'Felicia' by The Constellations, but I have a feeling that it's too quirky for a lot of people!

I'd bet on the Owl City/Carly Rae Jepson track being the big floorfiller.

Thanks for posting these SJ. Very Happy

Thanks Andy
Little Mix - No, neither will I...
Felicia - Tried this one with great response, but people are quite used to quirky down here Laughing
Owl City - predictably well recieved

I've come down on your side, guys and axed the Little Mix one from my selections. I've also decided Gare Du Nord - What's Up is a bit too risky too...no surprise there, eh, TeeDee? Cool

However, getting good response for Andreea Banica - Black Sea Queen, Emin - Falling and Austin De Lone - Let's Walk.

Laughing Laughing Laughing

I actually tried it out. Admittedly, I sort of played it safe in that I played it at a venue where I know the dancers left late in the evening are used to and like the odd [very] different track. It was well recieved by that group, but I'd say it's still quite 'risk on' for more mainstream periods/groups.

Brave man! Razz I'm glad it was enjoyed by some but, as you say, it's probably a more experimental track. I'm pleased that you have the courage to try out such a track though. Smile

I found a much better remix of Little Mix.
This I definitely would play.
Little Mix - Wings (The Alias Radio Edit)
