The Apartment Dance Party

The Apartment Dance Party

Some may be experiencing a sense of déjà vu as I had posted a sequel to my Apartment Dance Party mix several months ago, but then retracted it with a sense of shame normally reserved for the day after office Christmas parties, mishandled drone strikes, and for casual racists who drink while on Twitter. The mandate of the series was to act as a course correction for a blog that often features good dance music that is not always good music to dance to. When I tested my efforts in a room of drunk people, it was about as well received as a phone ringing in a crowded movie theatre.

I’d be at as embarrassed to publish my masturbation schedule as I would to admit how much time I’ve spent on this revision, which attempts to give a moment on the dance floor for each of the factions of musical taste that comprise your next apartment dance party.

KEEP THE PARTY GOING WITH FIRST MIX OF THE SERIES

nirarielitension6

The best house parties aren’t planned, they only exist through some combination of kismet and blind chance, like the origins of the universe or an unwanted pregnancy. The crowd organically swells as the music rises beyond the building’s thin threshold for noise. Girls use the washroom in pairs, and in the kitchen there is more alcohol than mix. People you normally only dance with in clubs are dancing on the living room floor, it’s the difference between seeing animals in the wild verses those living in captivity. Some don’t dance, they just take photographs. It’s their way of wishing the night would last forever.
This is The Apartment Dance Party.
