Bedlam Bar + Dances With White Girls Top 5 New Years Eve Songs
This year’s most talked about bar and most talked about New York City DJ will throw one of the most talked about New Year’s Eve events. How’s that for a big statement? Anyway, Dances With White Girls—who has collaborated with the Rapture, Felix Da Housecat and Mstrkrft—brings his signature house and electro beats to the buzzing Bedlam Bar for NYE 2011, along with Gunnie, DJ Mux Mool and handsome host Thomas Meggs ($20 cover, midnight champagne pour). If you don’t have a chance to see him live (and experience some celeb sightings, bathroom brawls, and other only in NYC moments), take note of the songs you should be hearing at the stroke of midnight.
“Runaway” – Kanye West This to me is 12:00 am music when it’s time to kiss that special someone. I hope everybody is doing it while giving a toast to the douchebags. And there’s a long enough intro so people can still be stoked that they are alive for one more year, God willing.
“Sex Sax” – Drop the Lime I’ve been playing this song since last February and to me this is definitely a New Year’s anthem for this year. Who doesn’t like horns, extra sub bass, and mamis on the track saying “aye caramba?”
“Is That Your Girl (feat. Telli from Ninjasonik)” – Mattie Safer I produced this with Mattie (formerly of the Rapture) and we keep it Brooklyn with Telli. I feel the hook explains the mindset of anybody when going into a NYE party: “Is that your Girl? I think I like her.” This is the move for how I like to foresee everybody’s new anthem for 2011 and what gets dropped all the time for New Year’s Eve 2012. And seriously … what is that girls name?
“Blowin’ Money Fast” – Rick Ross It’s a representation of how I like to look at the New Year every year, blowin’ money as quickly as possible.
“One (Congorock Rmx)” – Swedish House Mafia Its really easy to just pick a variety of “cool” tracks but at the end of the day when you’re going from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. New Years Day you need something to put your hands in the air to. It’s dirty pop music not bad at all.
