The Ultimate Spring Break Dance Party Mix 2024!

Party Favorz is back with our annual Ultimate Spring Break Dance Party Mix for 2024, and this set is unstoppable! Our latest Club Fusion entry spans a wide range of music, catching up on what we missed in January and February and previewing what’s to come on dance floors in the next few weeks. There’s plenty to talk about so let’s dive in!

John Summit returns with “Shiver,” the follow-up to his massive 2023 hit “Where Are You Now,” featuring another outstanding vocal performance by Hayla. While this track is a solid floor-filler, it may lean a bit too closely to the magic of its predecessor. However, that won’t deter anyone from enjoying its deep atmosphere and haunting vocals. Summit also offers an exceptional update to Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition,” a song that never tires in its various versions. In fact, “Sweet Disposition” is on track to rival Underworld’s “Born Slippy” as a DJ favorite for revitalization. Summit’s take maintains the original’s integrity while adding his unique flair to the track. Both releases are essential for any DJ set.

Among the tracks we’re excited about is Becky Hill’s latest single, “Never Be Alone,” from her forthcoming album. The D.O.D remix cleverly incorporates the bass synth riff from Armand Van Helden’s 90s remix of “Spin Spin Sugar” by Sneaker Pimps, elevating an already stellar track on the dance floor. Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa also contribute new offerings. Ariana’s “Yes, and?” has been stuck in our heads like glue, echoing Madonna’s iconic “Vogue” and inspiring numerous mashups. Felix Jahen’s version stays true to the original while giving it a contemporary lift. We eagerly anticipate Grande’s next album.

Dua Lipa’s third album seems to explore similar themes as her groundbreaking “Future Nostalgia.” Personally, I would have chosen “Training Season” over “Houdini” as the lead single (excluding “Dance the Night Away” from the “Barbie” soundtrack). The songs don’t fall flat, but they lack the captivating edge of her previous work. Nevertheless, the remixes manage to elevate them for the dance floor, keeping Lipa relevant in the house music scene.

It’s time to spotlight emerging DJs you should be following, starting with AVALAN ROKSTON. Currently in Beatport’s Top 10 with their remake of Moby’s “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?” they’ve also released “Faith,” a song teased on TikTok for over a month that truly lives up to the hype. The emotional depth of “Faith” is undeniable, especially when the euphoria hits. Their remix of London Grammar’s “Strong” from 2023, though new to us, is so impressive it deserves recognition among the top dance songs of last year and has been included here despite its original release date. It’s that good.

After his successful remix of Jain’s “Makeba,” Ian Asher continues to produce impressive bootlegs and remixes, signaling his readiness for the big leagues. His collaboration with Oliver Helden and Sergio Mendes on “Mas Que Nada” is a vibrant summer Latin-flavored tune showcases his distinctive touch. Asher is definitely one to watch.

Despite its poor box office performance, the movie “Saltburn” found success after it was released to streaming on Prime Video. We immediately picked up on the songs included in the movie and frankly, were surprised by their inclusion. Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Murder on the Dancefloor” was from her debut album after the massive success of DJ Spiller’s “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love” from back in the day. The song was not a widespread hit but it’s nice to finally get the recognition it deserves as the whole Disco House genre has exploded in recent years. The other song is “Perfecct (Exceeder)” by Mason vs. Princess Superstar, which was a big Electro House hit in the mid-millennium. There’s a whole story behind that song that you can look up by following Princess Superstar’s TikTok account if you’re interested.

Other highlights include the Telykast remix of Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For,” the Rakurs & Ewellick remix of “Let Me Think About It” by Freddy Le Grand and Ida Corr, the Rivo remix of “You and Me” by Disclosure and Eliza Doolittle, the Marco Generani remix of “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + The Machine, and the surprising 140 Remix of Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em,” which offers a fresh country remix for the dance floor.

Any song in this set not discussed here has nothing to do with their worthiness rather the limited space we have to showcase our exhuberance in talking about these songs. Rest assured, if they made the cut, they’re all equally excellent.

Finally, the Ultimate Spring Break Dance Party Mix for 2024 delivers a diverse and vibrant selection of genres, from Future House to Trance to Disco House, ensuring a fresh and engaging experience. Let the P-A-R-T-Y begin!

Until the next time…ENJOY!
