Stay At Home Dance Party Megamix

Click here for downloadable MP3 version.

One year ago today, I DJ’d ACCUTE’s annual Congress dance party, then held at UBC. In lieu of The 2020 ACCUTE Dance Party That Wasn’t, here’s two and a half hours’ worth of random, mashed-up jams and grooves (75 min at about 112 bpm, then 75 min at 127 bpm).

In recognition of the Congress theme that we still need — viz., Confronting Colonialism & Anti-Black Racism — this mix kicks off with Rascalz, Kardinal Offishal et al’s “Northern Touch” remix by A Tribe Called Red; the mix also includes vintage Eric B and Rakim, and Run The Jewels’ “Early,” a sharp critique of police brutality and racism. Black lives matter.

Stay at home and play it loud. Dance in your PJs; lace up your roller skates; vogue on the veranda. You do you. Next year in Edmonton.
