New music strategy, awesome songs welcome

At our last fabulous dance party, right at the end of the night, a DJ started to play “Blurred Lines”. Some folks got triggered and upset, and we didn’t get the music changed fast enough. As one response, we got together and made a new music strategy for future events. Let us know what you think of it!

As another response, we are starting to collect examples of positive, queer, anti-oppressive, solidarity-celebrating, and other radical dance music. We think this can be a fun resource for our future DJs, and maybe for other groups or events. Maybe for dancing in your kitchen too.

So, got a rad political dance party track to suggest? Please leave a comment. Links to youtube, soundcloud, bandcamp, etc are very welcome. Thanks!

  1. Been feeling this band. Love the female vocals, plus really good sound production, Ellihant “Down on Life” sounds a bit like MIA.

  2. The Coup!

    “The Guillotine”

    “We got hella people / they got helicopters / they got the bombs / but we got the guillotine”

    “5 million ways to kill a CEO”.

    “We Are The Ones”

    “We’re the have-nots, but we’re also the don’t-gets…”
