People ask sometimes how I find dance music. The answer is… everywhere. I just keep my ears open.
Andrew Belle’s amazing “Pieces” I found on Noisetrade. Carolyn Malachi and Misun were on NPR’s “Heavy Rotation“. Clandeskina Orquesta I think was a “trapped in the depths of youtube” discovery; I couldn’t even find them on iTunes. Caravan Palace was a fellow dancer’s recommendation. Churchill’s “Changes” I heard on the radio in the car–I wrote down some lyrics and looked them up when I get home. Sara Bareilles was already one of my favorite artists; these listed are from her new album.
Sara Jackson Holman was looking for Portland dancers for her music video; I saw the event on Facebook.
I found “Ha’malach Ha’goel Oti” by accident when I was looking for another waltz that I heard at Israeli dancing.
“Blue Eyes” was in an episode of “Scrubs”.
I happened to be around when my friend started playing Borderlands 2; “Short Change Hero” was the theme song.
Sometimes I get titles from DJs at other dances, but I don’t usually list those here–they’ve already been found!
