LCD Soundsystem 's James Murphy fused Eighties synth-pop, dance-punk and Detroit techno into a staggering work of heartbreaking genius. Earlier in the decade, his DFA label had helped get indie-rock kids on the dancefloor with songs like the Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers. Sound of Silver recalled albums like the Pet Shop Boys' Introspective , which used dance grooves to explore complex feelings of desire and obligation. Madonna 's heart had always been in the club — from the New York electro of her earliest hits to the full-on house groove of "Vogue.
British rave veteran William Orbit provided the shimmering pulse that backed Madge's exploration of new motherhood as a spiritual transformation. Sure, it wasn't cutting-edge dance music, but that was part of its majesty — she gave electronica a makeover, not vice versa. Yep, pretty much. Using an estimated samples — from classics like Madonna 's "Holiday" and Kid Creole and the Coconuts' "Stool Pigeon," as well as hard-to-recognize hip-hop, funk, easy-listening and cheese-jazz records — they created a concept album about getting over a breakup by embarking on an island cruise.
It's no surprise that Underworld would get tapped to do music for the opening ceremony at the London Olympics. When it comes to being awesomely grandiose, few can beat them. Yet even when they used rock instrumentation as on the harmonica driven "BigMouth," which opens this greatest-hits set , they never tried to push their sound beyond EDM's essential building blocks: the God-touched keyboard stabs, a stomping four-on-the-floor groove and Hyde's bullhorn chant-sing vocals.
It all came together best on the totally over-the-top "Born Slippy," a drunk's inner dialogue over a Balearic-Brontosaurus beat that got used brilliantly by Danny Boyle in the final scene in Trainspotting. As rave culture began to dip into a lull during the early s, the gauzy, loving feel permeating the releases of Cologne, Germany's Kompakt Records was the logical next step for longtime partiers pushing into their thirties.
On this mix album, Kompakt star Michael Mayer crafted a lush, haunting suite. Warning: dancing to this album can cause headaches, temporary loss of appetite, blurred vision or swollen bladder; if symptoms persist, please put on a Jewel CD. Cornwall, England native Richard James is electronic music's great restless innovator, a prolific mad scientist blurring the lines between dance music, ambient and avant-garde composition, influencing a generation of "intelligent" dance music artists, as well as everything Radiohead did after OK Computer.
His self-titled album might be the height of undanceable dance music, setting lush Victorian string arrangements and pastoral keyboard textures over brutally hard, quadruple-time breakbeats and toxic electro squelches. New York disco and house temple the Paradise Garage, opened in , is often considered the greatest club of all time. Every weekend until the Garage closed in , Levan performed alchemical feats with a gargantuan, free-ranging assortment of vinyl, from classical etudes to the Clash and Talking Heads to his own beautifully teased-out inch remixes of Taana Gardner's "Heartbeat" and Inner Life's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough.
Dance culture as we know it today begins here. Spike Jonze's brilliant, guerilla-style video for "Praise You" — in which a motley dance troupe does an impromptu routine in front of an L.

Aside from being a essential gay dance floor classic, this track proves how a good remix can elevate a song from good to ICONIC. The song is a perfect little slice of the early '90s New York club scene.
Listening to it almost makes you wish to you could time-travel to that era and dance the night away at Limelight. It's a triumph. A feeling. Pure joy. This song will take you places!!
Just try being in a bad mood after listening to it! Warner Bros. Sony Records. A song by two rando Danish teens, it's basically in the form of a song. I still don't know what the hell they meant by the lyric "You can make the sea turn turtle"?! A weird moment in time. An even weirder song. It literally could've only come from the '90s. Love, love, love Janet, but other than "If I was your girl," I have no idea what she is singing. The only Vengaboys song that matters. The "hola, hola, eh" makes this a multilingual smash!
