MC Escher here. I DJed with my buddy DJ Reaction on Sun, July 24th. It was fun putting together this playlist; DJ Reaction, inspired by Chicago’s DDPPness in the mid-aughts started the Minneapolis DDPP chapter. She was back visiting the City of Big Dance Shoulders in July and we teamed up to reminisce and talk the big issues regarding playlists: Can you actually dance to guitar-based rock music or is it more of a “jump-around-and-celebrate situation?” If a song was last played in 2012 is it OK to play it again now? And the pressing issue on everyone’s minds: is there a radio edit of White Lines under 8 minutes?
The answer to all of these questions is YES.
