    I don't mind older stuff but new is great as well.

    Trying to get back into my DJ'ing, though recently got sucked into listenning to lots of more indie stuff.

    As an idea my perfect track is Alala by Cansei De Ser Sexy which I think is absolutely amazing.

    Obviously got some stuff by Bloc Party and Kasabian and some of the Stone Roses remixes work pretty well.

    Any suggestions very much appreciated.

    Not really so good for keeping a club full of people dancing though is it?

    Don't get me wrong I do like their stuff but I'm not going to play it in a club.

    Some new and old, all super dancable to my mind....


    The Knife
    Crystal Castles
    Chromatics
    Glass Candy
    The Organ
    Les Georges Leningrad
    Add (n) to X
    The B-52s
    Rip Rig & Panic
    Death in Vegas
    Adult
    Pulsallama
    Bauhaus
    Siouxsie
    Selfish cunt
    New Order
    Divine
    Afrirampo
    Devo
    X-Ray Spex
    Television
    Deerhoof
    The Breeders
    Ladytron
    Jesus & Mary Chain
    some of Nico's solo singles are real underplayed gems
    this stuff is great in the last hour: Richard Hell / New york Dolls / Iggy Pop / the Stooges / David Bowie / Roxy Music / T.Rex / The Auteurs / 'Bugsy Malone' soundtrack


    = a great night's dancing.

    edit: whoops, I kinda ignored the question and just wrote my more-or-less ideal club playlist :)

    well it'll be a source of inspiration....

    Well actually give me a shout if you're ever in Bangkok.... looks like an average playlist from my mate's night for whom I'm hoping to DJ.

    Ladytron, certainly.

    Also check out the track "Essex Bootboys" from the Auteurs' fourth album "How I Learned To Love The Bootboys" - stupidly catchy and danceable, and quite unlike their normal guitar-based sound.

    I can dance to pretty much anything indie, but I have a feeling I'm not your target audience :)

    Currently playing: Standing In A Car Park Simulator 2013

    Go find a band call MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN I cannot stress enough how awesome they are.

    Its like a mix of klaxons and trippy 80's synth beats with layered vocals with kick ass guitar licks and old school rock drumming.

    The Rapture, new album is fantastic

    Both albums are great, first one is a bit referential but the second is a bit more their own.

    I quite like a couple of tracks by Robots In Disguise!, some quite danceable tunes they have.

    Cue ridiculously long list (not all very contemporary, though):

    The Gossip? You've probably already thought of them though.

    Rebellion off the first Arcade Fire album goes down surprisingly well in a club.

    Over and Over by Hot Chip.

    The Juan MacLean is another good DFA type band.

    Black History Month by Death From Above 1979

    If you're playing for people over 25 you can mine a rich vein of Britpop - Girls and Boys, Connection, Film Star, Babies etc.

    We Share our Mother's Health by The Knife

    Konichiwa Bitches by Robyn

    Good Stuff or Love and Pain by Clor, off their eponymous debut Album

    Immigrant Punk by Gogol Bordelle is a bit rough around the edges but awesome

    Theres a lot of good Stuff on Happiness in Magazines by Graham Coxon - Freakin out is special good

    I'll third it. North American Scum is particularly cool. DFA!!

    Oh, the Klaxons might fit the bill.

    Theres a good John B remix of Block Partys 'The Prayer' which is pretty decent.

    Did any of you catch LCD on their recent tour? They were unbelievable - much more intense - lots of chunky 303 lines and awesome cowbell action on "Daft punk..."

    no unfortunately, I loved the first album and bought the 2nd as soon as it came out. Then I thought I bet this sounds good live, checked the dates and they were (in London) that same week and all sold out :(

    Next time though I'm there.

    Pretty obvious but the late DFA1979, Lightning bolt also translate well to electro remixes, Hot chip, tapes n' tapes, Germlin and DJ scotch egg if you want that geeky computer game sound ; D

    Careful because Lightning Bolt is the name of an amazing grindcore two piece band. Don't get them muddled. :)

    No, couldnt get tickets, but I saw one live show on MTV2, which isnt quite the same, but they looked great.

    I saw them a few years ago when they were touring with the first album. Very small show, but great. They did a re-worked version of losing my edge, which was a killer.

    No losing my edge this time round ;_; But finished ith an amazing protracted version of New York I Love You which brought everyone close to tears (in a good way)

    For the OP - I forgot to mention MSTRKRFT - A DFA1979 Electro side project who tend to sound great loud.

    Also, look for Simian Mobile Disco remixes of pretty much anything, they're all good. Especially Downtown by Peaches.

    The Justice remix of We Are Your Friends still sounds great - though it's maybe a bit played out. If you DJ from CD there's a great mix of the acapella of ...Your Friends with Super Discount's Fast Track on the mix album Erol Alkan did for bugged out.

    Yep! with the right mixin's those boys could bring the hoose down, melodic riff yum all round. They ain't griiiind grandma charlie!! Dillinger escape plan, daughters and pig destroyer are grindcore. LB are more like magical epic adventure riff zelda wizards (listen to two towers, sounds like the forest temple in ocarina!)

    Hmm... Evil Nine are sort of rocky electroey breaks. I love them, but they seem to be too indie for the breaks heads and too dance for the indie kids.

    They are fun music and as such the hardcore tend to hate them :p
