Eulalia, aka DJ Rerun, gave us the run of our lives last night. I don’t know about all you ladies, but my legs were hurtin’ after last nights dj marathon into the past…past DDPP dance parties that is! One song sticks out in my mind from last night. It kept shouting, “we are united”. I felt it, did you? We were united through our dance moves, spirits, and our ability to let go and express ourselves. Oh, and did we express ourselves as the night started out with Vogue. We demonstrated our amazing rhythm, because we are indeed, the DDPP rhythm nation. We took a chance on each other in our dance space and let it all out without a care in the world. Headsprung (I think I almost busted my neck last night with some outlandish moves). Milkshake…oh WO-man do we have the shake. We took the dancing to a higher ground because we were true west end girls, kickin’ and pushin’ and moving our feet. All I have to say is 1 Thing…DJ Rerun rocked the house, our bodies, and our belief that there are still places where you can shake your booty without being judged. Well done ladies. Keep it comin………
Ready? It’s 6am. One, Two, Three GO! That’s how DJ Bender awoke to her Wednesday morning as she realized she had DJ duties. And did she ever provide! Mixing her mix on the CTA and finalizing it just before work. That is dedication, folks. And dedication pays off…in the form of a room full of deliriously happy ladies sweating their buns off. Thank you DJ Bender for sponsoring one of the best nights of sleep I’ve had in weeks!
I’m moving today – and usually the night before a move I’m the mayor of anxietyville. But not last night…no m’am! I hope all you lovely ladies who came out and joined us experienced the same blissful reverie! See below your the home-cooked recipe for 8 full hours:
Can we get a booty shake followed by some thrashin’? Yep we can. There is no place other than DDPP where those two dance moves are interchangeable…at least not any place I’ve ever been. Tonights mix worked every body muscle and captured every dancing move. Bouncing while shaking hips and playing air guitar…amazing. Bass to rock..we felt it. Bootylicious with some head banging and split leaps is my new favorite dance. Bring it on. Thanks ladies, for coming together to create on dynamic duo, one that represents the yin and the yang of music –perfect harmony.
DJ Magic Mitten (aka Kelley C) brought us a themed mix like we’ve never had before – it was based on a place! Before I spoil the surprise, see if you can guess the theme by perusing the playlist below:
Give up? Think about it – mitten…Sufjan Stevens… Eminem… Motown… got it?
MICHIGAN! DJ Magic Mitten hails from the wolverine state, and her mix last night put us in another state – total dance bliss. In honor of Magic Mitten’s mix, I’m changing the state motto from: “Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circum spice” [If you are seeking a amenable (pleasant) peninsula, look around you] to “Si quaeris dance class amoenam, circum spice”.
By the way – isn’t that the coolest state flag you’ve ever seen? And by the by the by the way – the last song on the mix was by Mr. Sufjan himself: Say Yes! To M!Ch!Gan! Which is what we all emphatically did for a sweaty smile-inducing hour and a half! Thanks for the total work of art on that mixterpiece! Keep the themes coming, you fantastically creative and amazing women! WE LOVE IT
