I was listening to a music programme the other day and it was all about Eurodance music.
Eurodance is a genre of electronic music that originated in the late 1980’s in Europe (obviously…)!
I’m a big fan of this genre of music and it’s a massive part of who I am!
Growing up in Manchester, England, I listened to this music all the time! On MTV – when they actually played music, on the radio (shout out to Key 103!!!), on the school bus, at parties, at the shops and so on.
I decided to share a few of my fave songs of this genre, hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
(I got a bit too excited and posted a lot of songs, I know I missed out a few, but if I actually put all the 90’s tunes I listened to back then, you guys wouldn’t be going out this weekend.)

One of the best feelings (for me) in the world is discovering new music…
I thought I had discovered Rudimental a few days ago when I heard We the Generation on the radio show I collaborate on with Jergas; thing is, whilst listening to them for quite a few hours, I realized I had heard their song Feel the Love ft. John Newman a few years ago!
Rudimental are a drum and bass band from Hackney, London.
They’ve collaborated with artists such as Alex Clare, Foxes and Emeli Sandé and were nominated for a Mercury Prize back in 2013, that same year they won the Brit and Mobo Award for Best Album (Home) and I don’t think they’re far off from winning quite a few more statues for their second album released earlier this month called We the Generation.
The name of their second album is the song I’m going to post, I hope you love it as much as I do!
Burning Man is a music festival that takes place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, U.S.A.
The festival actually began in San Francisco in 1986 and was originally created to showcase contemporary Mexican electronic music… Things have a changed a little over the years though.
Burning Man lasts 7 days, and the concept of the whole festival is: a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.
The festival begins on the 30th August – 7th September this year and the lineup includes DJ’s and artists such as: Maceo Plex, Rebolledo, Nu, Damian Romero, Lovefingers and more.
I personally have never been ( I definitely need to go and will go some day…), but I have met a few people here and there that have been and the whole experience sounds insane…. It’s very laid back, people exchange everything and anything for food, cleaning items, basically, anything, but the whole vibe is very much Peace and Love. You see the randomest outfits, performances, you can expect ANYTHING! That’s what I love about it… Totally out of the box, out of the ordinary….
Have a look at the video the BM crew got together, it’s a 5 minute short musical that shows and talks about the festival.
