Welcome to the annual X-mas Dance Mix for 2019! I spent the better part of Thanksgiving working on this set because dinner wasn't served until 7pm. I had been busy scrounging my DJ service and various SoundCloud accounts to create this year's offering of holiday dance music favorites and really think I hit this one out of the park.
I went back this morning to ensure the integrity of the set and made some minor changes that only I would notice. If I'm happy — then I know y'all will be.
I've got all your favorite tracks that have appeared on various iterations of X-mas Dance over the years and scooped several new entries. I also added a few that only appeared once over the years. I also want to give a HUGE shout out to our good friends from Mark D and JD Arnold a.k.a. Dirty Disco for sending me an advance copy of their this year's entry into the holiday dance music landscape, "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" by the fabulous Debby Holiday. I've been begging them to update the Weather Girls classic "Dear Santa (Bring Me A Man This Christmas," but they completely forgot. Mark is all on board and promised to deliver their version next year.
In the interim, I came across this fantastic version by Raquela in my DJ service and ran with it. The vocals are spot on and her version delivers a circuit-friendly re-work that stays true to the original, even if it could use a bit more energy.
Overall, I think this year's X-mas Dance is the best one I've put together to date. From the serious and the solemn to the camp (without being too over the top) — this delivers the cheer to brighten up your holidays.
I've got the rest of December all mapped out and may even try to squeeze in the final Ultimate 80's Dance Mix this next week. Expect a head-spinning succession of new releases (including the highly anticipated Year In Dance and Blow Your Own Horn) by the end of the month.
I want to give a HUGE shout out to our good friend Glenn A. from the UK for his kind donation. They are always welcome as I'm not exactly getting rich from the subscription service.
Until the next time...ENJOY!
