DJ Battle-palooza!


I think I’m starting to lose track of how many times we’ve done this!  Maybe this is DJ Battle #4?  Here’s a link to previous battle reviews.  Please correct me if there have been more.  DJ Battles always seem to bring a spark of freshness to the dance floor.  I’m certain we could host quite a few more DJ Battles–have you thrown down one yet?


“…like the ceiling can’t hold us…”


What am I talking about?  DJ Battles are just another approach to creating an hour’s worth of music for a danceable playlist.  A DJ Battle occurs when two deejays agree to create seven (or so) categories and match each other with songs that fit the category.  The result is fourteen songs (about an hour’s worth of music).  It’s not as much a competition as the title implies–but as we always say….the true winners are always the dancers!  Last week’s dance party (Friday May 2nd), was another DJ Battle featuring speed, agility, and fancy footwork.  A few of the categories: a song that might have played at your prom, a song that reminds you of when you were a foreign exchange student, a duet, a song about dancing, and a sexy song.  Maybe the deejays, The Den Mother and grrrilla beats, will share with us the names of the rest of their categories.

If you’d like to wage your own DJ Battle, please let one of the den mothers know and we’ll put you on the deejay schedule.  Then grab a partner and come up with your own categories–or select from those that have been used in previous battles.  It’s just that easy.  Check out last week’s playlist:




Take a break from the mundane and join us on the dance floor!  We dance again on Friday, May 16th, 8pm–don’t be LATE!  We’ll be at Martell’s dance school in Highland Square as usual.  We always dance on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Fridays of every month–so mark your calendars ahead of time.  You don’t want to miss out on all the fun.

If you’re looking at your calendar, you’ll see this month includes a 5th Friday (Friday May 30th) so we’ll be dancing to a movie soundtrack again.  On May 30th, we’ll be dancing to the soundtrack of American Graffiti–an early 1960s music playlist.  So get your bobby socks out and join us on the dance floor!
