Edward Navarro, "Rebel Disco Podcast #001"
As we documented in a recent DJ Dossier that focused on Rebel Disco, the mission of the six-member dance music cabal is "having fun playing music for party people." And those sounds include plenty of disco, house music, acid, and techno, which are the exact same genres permeating this 72-minute mix by the collective's Edward Navarro, who dipped into his ample music collection to create pure audio intoxication that's guaranteed to get rumps shaking or heads bobbing.
Prince$$, "TH3 F1R$T"
As his DJ alter ego Prince$$ (pronounced "Prince Money Money"), artist Thomy Hoefer assembled this epic, 59-minute selection of electro-house hits, club banger blockbusters, and dubstep-laced tracks that hits your ears with relentless waves of dance floor favorites like Tonite Only's "We Run the Night," Zedd's "Slam the Door," Hardwell's "Spaceman," and the Knife Party/ Swedish House Mafia collaboration "Antitode."
