Clean House to
This playlist will help you get “up and clean” (instead of “down and dirty,” get it?)
featuring artists like
Kiki, Kill Frenzy, The Black Madonna, Mikael Delta, Daniela La Luz, Nathan Micay
Similar to how I feel about dancing, cleaning helps me destress and decompress (hence why I created this playlist that doubles as both a cleaning soundtrack AND a house party mixtape.)
Whether you’re getting a jumpstart on spring cleaning (you overeager beaver, you), you’re hosting a Netflix and Chill sesh with your latest ‘right swipe’ (hubba, hubba), or you’ve watched way too many episodes of Hoarders, this playlist will help you get “up and clean” (instead of “down and dirty,” get it?)

Need more house cleaning music? Well I hope you have on comfortable shoes! Toro Y Moi’s Still Sound is exactly what you’re looking for. The groovy bass line and guitar riffs are sure to bring out your inner dance machine

I first heard this song yesterday as I was running through Hasenheide, a huge park by my house. I had already been running (ok, you got me, jogging) for a solid 15 minutes and therefore reaching my tap out point. And then, like a gift from the gods, this magical song started pumping into my ears like a seductive siren, causing me to tap into a dormant energy source I wasn’t even aware existed

Last night, after a few glasses of wine, my roommate and I were laughing about our individual dancing styles when we are at a club and completely immersed in the music. My roommate tends to hang out in front of the DJ. She’s usually swinging her arms, but in a very controlled way as if she’s marching (that or fending off a bevy of zombies.) Oh and she’s usually smiling really big at other people, wanting to make sure that those around her are having just as much fun as she is.

As a woman who loves techno, I feel it is my personal duty to draw attention to all the incredible techno DJs out there who also happen to be ladies. That’s why occasionally I’ll use this playlist as my platform (hey, everyone needs a soapbox, ok?)

Marketed as a brooding and often dark tech house floor filler, what I like most about ‘Sacred Geometry’ is how the track evolves with layers of filtered synth parts, building percussion over the track’s 7 and a half minutes.

How perfect that this track is named “Dishes & Wishes”. If I had to rank all my household chores from best to worst, washing dishes would always be at the top of my list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my legs are free to dance to whatever Deep House track is currently bumping out of my laptop speakers.

On Saturday night I arrived to Griessmühle; formerly a pasta factory, and presently one of my favorite clubs in Berlin. Not only is it just a few U-bahn stops from my house, but it’s a bit off the beaten path (and a bit gritty), which means it doesn’t attract a lot of tourists.

Since today is International Women’s Day I thought it would be most appropriate to feature one of my favorite DJs, Lady Blacktronika. She was one of the first friends I made when I arrived to Berlin and also the first person to ever tell me not to refer to “Techno” as “Electro.” When I asked her why, she said, “just don’t.” Duly noted Lady Black.

Max Cooper creates “highly produced, emotional electronica made for both the dance floor and sit-down concerts.” When I hear this song I am immediately reminded of the deep, introspective journey that music sometimes takes me on. There I am in the middle of dance floor, surrounded by gyrating strangers and dancing lights. I close my eyes and go on a mini-vacation in my mind.

Throwing house parties in Berlin, if done right, can actually yield a profit (and no I am not talking about charging your friends upon entry.) In Germany, you can bring your empty glass bottles to your nearest grocery store and get money back. Today, I proudly carried a giant bag of jangly bottles to my corner market and received a whopping 3.18 eur. Woo!

A couple of days my roommate mentioned that she was going to deep clean the apartment. I said, “Well, wait. Friday we are having a house party and it’s just going to get filthy again.”

Because this song is a bit slower than the other tracks on the playlist, it’s great for getting in the zone (or pretending your life is in slow motion.) It’s a dreamy trip to the moon without ever having to leave the comfort of your room.
