Summer Throwback Dance Party 2022 | Old School Music Mix with a Twist

Eager to ignite a wave of nostalgia, I initially aimed to debut a Block & Crown (Adri Blok) Legacy mix in November as an ode to old school music. However, as time grew short, I had to place this project on hold. With the 4th of July holiday weekend upon us, I found the perfect opportunity to delve into my vast archive of classic mashups and bootlegs, fusing them into an unforgettable ‘Summer Throwback Dance Party’.

Their tunes have sporadically surfaced on Dance Club, Peak Hour, and Disco House compilations over the years, and acted as a treat for the discerning ear. What binds these tracks together is their shared love for the pulsating rhythm of dance music in all its vibrant forms. You’ll discover old melodies reimagined, classic disco or 80s dance tracks seamlessly blended with iconic 90s Hip Hop. The vocals often echo the original artists, though sometimes they introduce a new voice that closely mirrors the original vocalist. While the titles may not instantly ring a bell, the moment you hear them, you’ll find yourself saying, “Wait a minute, I know that tune!”

While Block & Crown have owned this Funky House Music space for a while, others, including Richard Grey, Softmal, Nari, Lissat, and more, have also carved out their space in the throwback dance party landscape. More recently, Ghostmasters, The Soul Gang, Ghostbusterz, and Disco Gurls have made a noticeable impact. I suspect Nacho Chapado & Ivan Gomez are the creators behind these aliases, sharing these remixed gems via their Guareber Recordings brand. Their focus primarily lies in the realm of 80s dance, with occasional explorations into different eras.

In tune with the early summer season, I’ve curated a playlist of dance classics that are the heartbeat of the ‘Summer Throwback Dance Party’ – the perfect backdrop for BBQs, family outings, or lazy afternoons by the pool. Spanning from the 60s to now, with a few fresh current songs with a retro feel peppered in, this compilation perfectly captures the essence of old school music. Some are straightforward reimagined classics tailored for today’s dance floor, much like our ‘Thank God It’s Disco‘ series, but with a broader chronological canvas.

Regrettably, some tracks couldn’t be included due to their abrupt endings, which posed a challenge for a continuous mix set. Despite this, the ‘Summer Throwback Dance Party’ has been my constant companion for the past week, promising a timeless party vibe for all.

If you’re seeking an escape, this set is your ticket to a temporary paradise. It’s a veritable sonic feast!

Keep an eye out for the forthcoming Beach House series – all the tracks are compiled and ready to launch next week. I’m also revamping the Disco House series, but I’ll reveal more about that when it’s time. Until then…ENJOY!
