I’m a bit of an indie music type. Excited about Belle and Sebastian main man Stuart Murdoch’s new girl group project God help the girl. Wondering if the new Manic Street Preachers album Journal for Plague lovers is at all good.
But my alter ego couldn’t care less – she’s into club bangers. It’s all about the dancefloor filler killers – getting your hands up for Detroit, Miami crunk, crunchy blasting hiphop and stonking remixes. Tune of the moment? Bonkers!
If you are similarly afflicted with an addiction to bass, try the aptly titled Addicted to Bass. Shawty get loose: 20 R&B club anthems sounds loads of fun – you can’t argue with the Freemasons remix of Work, the track in which Destiny’s Child’s Kelly Rowland totally serves it up to Beyonce.
Other bangers that’ll sound just fine blasting out of your stereo (at neighbour baiting volume):
- The mashup Collision Course stars the two seemingly opposing forces that are alt-metallers Linkin Park and uber hiphop supremo. It’s the best housework music ever.
- Buraka Som Sistema – Sound of Kuduro is one cool track – and the dancing in the video will blow your mind – Angolan jerky robotic moves galore
- Ministry of Sound – loads of compilations are put out by this famed club. There’s a tasty bunch out in 2009.
- Australia has lots of good dancey music – and shorty divas like that stalwart Kylie Minogue and eyelinered twins The Veronicas.
- Beyonce is FIERCE.
