If You Want to Turn It Up Knix Mix Style, You'll Need to Play These!
I have a dream club playlist in my head. Too bad I don't have a club to play in, no? There are more where these came from, but if you want to turn it up with music that makes DJ Knix want to go dancing, add these to your playlist!
French music pioneer Étienne de Crécy's "Someone Like You" is the anti-love song and really fun to dance to! You can pick it up on Super Discount 2 or Essentials (Best of), which has some of his other must own tracks.
Ascii.Disko is the project of German-born Daniel Holc who now resides in Madrid, Spain. Before becoming an electronic music producer and DJ, he played guitar for a rock band. Who knew? The eponymously titled album Ascii.Disko is deliriously fun to dance to.
Swedish Club 8 is the only indie pop group that made the (abbreviated) playlist, but everything in Sweden is better. "Stop Taking My Time," which could be the theme song for my life, came from one of my favorite albums of 2013, Above the City.
MSTRKRFT (pronounced "master craft") is an electronic duo out of Toronto, Canada. "Street Justice" is from their debut album The Looks, which came out in 2006, and the video as homage to 70's era Soul Train.
