Toro Y Moi – Still Sound

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

Good Voodoo – Kiki (VisionQuest Remix)

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

Momentum – Kill Frenzy, Justin Jay

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.

A Jealous Heart Never Rests – The Black Madonna

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?)

Did You Ever – Daniela La Luz

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.

What House Is – Lady Blacktronika

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.

Diving With Whales – Nora En Pure, Daniel Portman

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.”

Voyeur – The M Machine

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. 

It’s Ok (feat. Patricia Edwards) – Ernesto Blaque

The lyrics to It’s Ok were written by Patricia Edwards way before I ever made the song. I liked it when I first heard the lyrics and then decided to write music to it. Since Patricia is based in New York and I am based In Johannesburg, I wanted the song to have both an American as well as a South African feel to it. I also wanted the song to fit in any club around the world. Hope you enjoy!

A New Day (feat. Fritz Kalkbrenner) – Chopstick and Johnjon

It’s the freakin’ weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. Before I crack open a bottle of beer and toast to the ending of a particularly stressful week, I still have a few tasks I need to finish up..like backing up all my data to my external hard drive (a habit I need to just go ahead and adopt weekly). 

Rock Solid (Mickey Remix) – Rambla Boys

The other night I had the arduous task of putting together an IKEA bed that I had bought secondhand. The task was arduous because 1. There were no instructions, 2. I had never put together a bed before.

House Work – Jax Jones

“I call it house work, ’cause it’s like work. But Ima throw shade if I don’t get paid for this house work.” Man, I can relate. I don’t just dance; I dance like it’s my motha fuckin’ job.
