DDPP DECEMBrrrrrr

This edition of DDPP was brought to you by democracy.

So. A choice of four themed playlists (8th Grade Dance, Old Timey, Good Timey!, Magnificent Mashups, Mostly Motown) and five choices, the fifth choice being All Mixxxxed Up. The people have spoken, and the playlist was random selections from each playlist. OR SO SHE THOUGHT.

What actually happened is that the new space has thick concrete walls…too thick to connect to the internet and website upon which she had stored this playlist. DRAT. So, after a quick scurry to grab random, danceable songs from her itunes, a good time was STILL had, despite the technical snafuu. She is so proud of her intended playlist, however, that here it is anyway!

  • Seven Nation Army // Ben L’oncle Soul
  • Like This // Girl Talk
  • Stanky Get Funky // Billy Davis
  • Work It Out/Do You Love Me // The Contours vs. Beyonce
  • KIDS // MGMT
  • Get Up Offa That Thing // James Brown
  • Hands In The Air // Girl Talk
  • Jaan Pehechaan Ho //
  • Higher Ground // Stevie Wonder
  • Crazy // Ben L’Oncle Soul
  • Can You Jerk Like Me // The Contours
  • Jump On It // Sir Mixalot
  • Dancing Machine // Jackson 5
  • The Beatles vs. LCD Soundsystem vs. The Kinks
  • Too Many Fish In The Sea // The Marvelettes
  • Sex Machine Kiss // Prince vs. James Brown
  • Another One Bites The Funk // Queen vs. Daft Punk
  • The Last of the Secret Agents // Nancy Sinatra
  • Cheekyboy mashup // Will Smith vs. The Bee Gees

this really is the best mashup ever:

Old Timey, Good Timey!

THE NEXT DDPP IS JANUARY 6, 2011 yo!

DJ 3177 is spinnin’ the jams. Be there. Or be square. Or both.

DDPP wishes you Christmas cheer, if you want it!

DDPP November recap!

There is really only one thing I can say about DDPP November: GLOWSTICKS

(You can probably imagine what happened next)

In addition to the sheer awesomeness of Thea’s glowsticks and fabulous bootyshakin’ playlist, it was also our first time in the new space (well, new to us!).  Cafe Bella is expanding, and recently acquired the storefront (a former grocery store) next door to the cafe/Creative Space. It’s a big, empty, blank slate at the moment, which means it’s absolutely perfect for dancing! We’re certainly stoked for the extra room!

But for now? We dance!

DDPP Recap: September 2nd!

If there is one thing loyal fans of DDPP are more loyal to, it’s Ohio State Football. Our last DDPP fell smack dab in the middle of the first OSU game of the season (college football on a Thursday? wtf?). Our numbers were slim, but we had a great time! Also, we had to kick out our first man-child who had too much football to drink.

DJ EVE OF DESTRUCTION provided us with a super-slammin’ set of great tunes. EVEofD is far from ordinary, so we knew we were in for a treat!
