Indie Dance DJ Mix Volume 2 - Too dancey to be indie, too indie to be danceIndie Dance / Nu Disco / Tech House / Dance / DJ Tools / Electronica / Downtempo / House
This mix does what it says on the box: indie dance that's too dancey to be indie and too indie to be dance. Think of it as a tribute to DFA Records' motto, "too old to be new, too new to be classic." Or singer songwriter Dave Warner's quip that he was "too straight for the hips and too hip for the straights." Or brunch, which is totally "too breakfasty to be lunch and lunchy to be breakfast." Just please don't compare this mix to three quarter length pants. Because "too short to be longs and too long to be shorts" is never a good look.
This mix includes remixes of classics like Love is in the Air (Milk & Sugar remix), through to underrated gems like Senor Coconut's acid-reggaeton cover of a track by Japanese synth pop band Yellow Magic Orchestra. Also be sure to check out Canberra duo Peking Duk's track Love the Way You Love, which has been getting a workout at festivals both locally and overseas and has a film clip that's been racking up Youtube plays a plenty.
