October 2014 Chart

October
It’s funny: Toward the end of nearly every month when I know I want to get this chart posted, I start worrying that there isn’t enough music. That I haven’t discovered or fell in love with any new songs. But then during the last few days as I start figuring out what songs to include (based in part on play count, rating, etc. and in large part on which songs get stuck in my head), everything comes together and more often than not I’m like, “Oh wow. What was I worrying about? I’ve got some great songs to include!” This is one of those months. Things came together at the end and I realized I have some new favorites.

Artist Song Name Remixer
Kasper Bjørke Apart (feat. Sísý Ey)
Let me include part of the MixMag review (it was their Disco Tune of the Month): “With ‘Apart’ Kasper Bjørke has created a modern day dark disco anthem that can proudly sit alongside the lieks of Sharon Brown in the hall of fame. The press release describes it as ‘commercially friendly’ and while it may have charted in 1987, nowadays the chance of this getting Radio 1 A-listed is slim. It’s catchy for sure, but its dark, twisted pop overtones are more akin to French Kiss ‘Mischief’ — itself a prototype techno anthem for 1979. The drums are 80s and unprocessed. The vocals are female and forlon. The synths are innocent and upset. It’s nothing short of genius.” Couldn’t have said it better myself! Also: I need to look into more “dark disco anthems.”
Lilly Wood & The Prick Prayer In C Robin Schulz radio edit
DJ Rashad I Don’t Give a Fuck
Iggy Azalea Black Widow Tiga remix
I never would’ve thought I would’ve included an Iggy Azalea song here, but the magic Tiga works on this song is too incredible. It reminds me of my fav song of his: “Shoes”
Yelle Complètement fou
Caribou Can’t Do Without You extended mix
So glad I found this extended mix. This is one of those songs you want to go on and on and on… Almost went with the Munk remix (how predictable, I know), but in the end the original really did it for me the most.
Justin Faust Jackalope
Him_Self_Her Love You Like I Used To dub
Laidback Luke Bae (feat. Gina Turner)
Drew Hill Talk to You Groove Armada remix
Go Satta Time to Love David Garcet My Discoshoes remix
This song wins the award for being stuck in my head the most. And I loved it.
