Dive into the captivating era of dance music with Party Favorz’s final volume of the ‘Top 2000s Dance Music Classics‘ series, covering iconic tunes from 2003 to 2004. This collection showcases some of the biggest dance hits and hidden treasures that defined this pivotal period in dance music.
Among the influential contributors of this period were Gabriel & Dresden, whose transition from progressive to trance remixes provided a darker edge to club music. Their remix of Jewel’s “Intuition” still ranks high among the Top 2000s Dance Music Classics. Jewel, known as an alt-folk singer, proved that thought-provoking lyrics could coexist with pop’s perceived superficiality by transitioning into pop music.
Mainstream hits of this period include Christina Milian’s “Dip It Low“, Janet Jackson’s “All Nite (Don’t Stop)“, and Justin Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body“. These songs not only dominated pop charts but also set dance floors on fire, particularly Sander Kleinberg‘s progressive house mixes, a distinctive part of the Top 2000s Dance Music Classics.
Lesser-known but equally impactful tracks such as Nina Sky’s “Move Your Body” and Mylo’s “Drop the Pressure” gained classic status in this era and received renewed interest with remix treatments in 2022.
This period also saw ONO, John Lennon’s widow, venture into dance music. Her abstract poetry, turned into dance remixes, was a successful experiment, with “Walking on Thin Ice”, remixed by Pet Shop Boys and Danny Tengalia, topping the club charts.
An unforgettable entry to our Top 2000s Dance Music Classics is the Heaven & Earth remix of “Clocks” by Coldplay. Despite not being an official release and charting low, its profound impact on club music was later acknowledged by Coldplay itself.
For a comprehensive list of the best dance tunes from this era, explore our Top Dance Songs for 2000 — 2009, focusing on the 2003 and 2004 releases.
Stay tuned for our regular programming next week. Meanwhile, prepare to be transported back to the millennial dance music era with the ‘Top 2000s Dance Music Classics’. And as always…ENJOY!
