Top Dance Songs of 2020 Vol. 3 | Year In Dance Music

Top Dance Songs 2020We have reached the end of the Top Dance Songs of 2020 with volume 3 and it is glorious! This final volume has a more laidback feel overall and that’s because many of the tracks included in these sets are pop hits that were never intended for the dance floor. Nevertheless, the songs are culturally important and resonate with so many people that its inevitable the label either commissions official remixes or aspiring DJ/producers remix the tracks for their own sets.

You’d think that with everything on lockdown, their wouldn’t be that much great dance club music but far from it. That’s not to say that there was as much during the second half of the year but we still had more than enough to fill our typical three volume year-end series.

If anything positive came out of 2020 — it would be musical styles in popular and dance music have started to give way to more diversity in their offerings. I realize that many of the songs in this series rely heavily on a formulaic Future House sound and the likes of Joel Corry, J Bruus, Colin Jay, Cosmic Dawn, Division 4 & Matt Consola, Ray Isaac, and Charlie Lane have perfected that sound but to their credit — they’re serving up dance floor ear worms for tracks that otherwise would never get remixed.

Probably one of the most exciting remixes this year was for WAP by DJ Ranny. Yes there were several unofficial remixes out there but none added to the excitement and party nature of the song. When Ranny sent his take over — I was bowled over as I immediately knew he hit a homerun! It’s a shame it couldn’t have been enjoyed more on dance floors across the globe because it was a surefire winner.

I think Dua Lipa really tapped into something with the direction of music by digging into 70’s, 80’s and 90’s Disco, Dance and House music to create a feelgood escape on her sophomore effort “Future Nostalgia.” Doja Cat equally did a great job of keeping our heads nodding to a slinky disco beat. Don’t be surprised if Madonna finally — after all these years of begging her — goes back to her roots and delivers a carefree album that taps into the energy of her debut album. In fact, I’ll lay down good money on it.

In the interim, I hope everyone is enjoying this mega time capsule of the year 2020 with all the good, bad and ugly this year will be known for decades to come. We have one more set to close the year out and I’ll do my best to make it one roof-raising floor scorcher for all my party people. Until then…ENJOY!
