Music time: Hustle, Nightclub, Waltz, and West Coast Swing, with one each of Merengue, East Coast Swing, for a little variety.
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.
