I figured I could take a step away from my beloved classics for a minute or so. We all know most modern dance music is equivalent to most modern art, but hey, some of it's catchy. Now I'm a funk type of guy, so posting this stuff is REALLY branching out.
To sum everything up, remixes, so far, have been "in" for 2010. Everyone's collaborating and cranking out some pretty decent pop remixes, including Fred Falke's lackluster Tik Tok remix. Did I mention Ke$ha = Uffie? Cuz she does. I said it.
Let's kick things off with Inna. Now that 75% of you have stopped reading, hello my dedicated readers! To sum it up, Inna is a Romanian dance-pop star (yeah I don't know where Romania is either). But the first track comes from Play & Win, a Romania dance trio that frequently mixes Inna dance-floor tracks. This one's actually quite catchy, and has been featured on Sirius BPM (Channel 36) a hell of a lot recently.

Next, a slammin' Rihanna mix. I'm not the biggest fan of her work, but goddamn is she versatile. Many of the remixes for her new album, Rated R, are simply incredible. Jody Den Broeder's take on the less-than-popular "Hard" is pretty damn good, albeit a bit slow-moving in the beginning (which seems to be a trend this year). It sounds popular, because it is, expect to cross oceans in the next few weeks. I'm so hard.

And lastly, let's go over a remix of Queens-Native Lucas Prata's Remember, which has only recently made it to the dance charts in the US. Prata is mainly known for his work being featured in dozens of commercials, and he covered that Numa Numa song :P. He's pretty well-known in the states, but for some reason this remix stayed in Europe for quite some time.

So that's it for "Today in Dance." I hope you enjoyed, and if not, at least you know what's going on around you.
