Venerable Chicago dance music producer, Mark Picchotti, continues dominating the Billboard Dance Charts with this Top 10 chart hit; a pop-dance stomper for the clubs by FOSTER THE PEOPLE entitled “Don’t Stop.” It’s also a FREE DOWNLOAD from Mark’s SoundCloud page.
DJ Tony Z is back with another slammin’ Netmix Global House Podcast for November 2011. This mix strays from the underground, with a more uptempo popular flavor defined by a big room sound and anthemic, female and male vocals. This is one of the best Netmix podcasts to date. We know you’ll love it.
Nice to see someone’s investing in music videos for dance music artists. Although we wish the director would have gotten Guetta to do more than just shill for Nokia and make love signs with his hands, it’s all good. The track is cool and the dance routine isn’t half bad. Thumbs up!

BURNS has been busy remixing the sounds of Ladyhawke, Jack Spalsh feat. Missy Elliot, Passion Pit, The Gossip, Kasabian, White Lies, FrankMusic, and Calvin Harris.
Now for something we didn’t know…Birmingham U.K. producer/dj, Kim Fai! He’s listed on the bill along with Sleepy & Boo. This cat is sick! We just checked out his tracks on his MySpace. What! Yo…crazy! His remix of the balearic classics Inner CityGood Life and the Paul Thomas & Myke Smith remake of Atlantic OceanWaterfall are incredible. He’s got a bunch of tracks out, including Drug Music 2009 with Mark Knight from Toolroom Knights on the vocal. We hadn’t heard his remix of Funkagenda’s “What the F*@&k.” We found the YouTube track and it’s served up in this post. Very deep, dark and certainly underground.
Before I leave the house for meetings in the city, I need to blast out a few quick emails. After clicking open Gmail and then swapping tabs to Facebook to check my feed, I saw my man, Markie Gee’s mix posted to my Facebook page. What better than to listen to deep house music as I let a few emails fly? This is smokin. Especially when you get to the Layabouts feat. Kathy Brown track, Choices. Now that’s a crack-a-lackin house track! It’s comes in at about 30:20. The beat kicks it hard and Brown’s energy on the track gels nicely with the theme, about making choices. Funny, last week at dinner with friends, we were talking about making choices. Now, here’s a track that carries on that conversation. At the very end, Roland Clark’sDeep In House makes you wanna move. I’m always DEEP IN HOUSE, baby! Thanks to Markie for sweetening the day.
