by Ivy Boyd

Add these 8 tracks to your playlist for some fresh dance goodness!
1. King-Arty Remix by Years & Years
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone that is more obsessed with Years & Years than I am. I’ve listened to their Communion album so much that I’m now seeking out remixes like this one to keep it fresh. You can’t not get in a happy, dance mood listening to this.
2. Company by Justin Bieber
The Biebs is totally making a comeback, both with this music and likability. I seriously love his new Purpose album, and that is a sentence I never thought I’d type. We know you’ve been jamming to “Sorry” and “What Do U Mean?” for a while now, but this overlooked track has all the dance beats and a fun two-step vibe.
3. I Wish (My Taylor Swift) by The Knocks feat. Matthew Koma
Let’s slow it down and catch our breath with this fun track from The Knocks. With Kanye West’s recent derogatory lyric about T. Swift, this song is a welcome homage. It makes me think of drinking lemonade by the pool in the summer.
4. Make a Stand by Embody, Barnaby
This is an instant good mood song for me. With its poppy dance track and soft vocals, it’s the perfect song for calmly lining your eyes to.
5. Live Fast or Die by Bo Rocha
With vocals reminiscent of Lana Del Ray mixed with a little Lykke Li, this female-driven anthem makes you ready to live for the moment. It asks a very important question, too: Do you wanna live fast or die? Hmm. It’s a toss-up.
6. I Can Change-Kill Them with Colour Remix by Brandon Flowers
If you’re missing The Killers, you should know that Brandon Flowers has some really solid solo work. I love the original song, and this remix makes it dance-party ready. You’ll recognize that classic Killers crooning straight away.
7. I Took A Pill in Ibiza-SeeB Remix by Mike Posner
Hey, remember Mike Posner? I always liked him, and then he kind of fell off the face of the earth. He’s back, and his new stuff is really fun dance music with a little soul too. This song has a super-fun tropical house beat, but the lyrics are much more somber.
8. Working for It by Zhu, Skrillex, THEY.
This song starts out slowly and then builds to a deeper groove. It has flavors of dance hall, R&B, and a little dub step too. Guarantee you’re already dancing.
