McQ's Best Of 2019 Vol 7 - All Things Disco!

All right, electronic music fans of every stripe, it's your turn now.

On this sampler, we divide things into three distinct movements. 

Set one focuses on several of the 2019's best contemporary pop hits and dance club singles.

Set two goes mostly instrumental, with selects from some of the years best EDM, IDM, House, and Techno releases.

And in the Encore, we jumble it all up, and add a few beloved older players into the mix.

Here's the Spotify link. Enjoy!



SET 1 (Dance Tent Divas)

1. You're No Good - Chromatics: Straddling electronic and indie aesthetics, we split the two best songs from the always Lynchian (it's no accident the band closed the first episode of Showtime's 2017 Twin Peaks revival) Chromatics Closer To Grey between this mix and Vol 3 - All Things Indie. Here on You're No Good, the Portland-based, Johnny Jewel-led outfit hits a vibe flawlessly reminiscent of John Talabot's 2012 electronic hit Destiny to give us the perfect opener to this year's dance, pop, and electronica themed-mix. 

2. Bad Guy - Billie Eilish: From WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? More coming soon!

9. White Mercedes - Charil XCX: From CharliMore coming soon!

10. Prophet - King Princess: For my money, the sultriest vocal performance on this entire mix, King Princess's (aka Brooklyn- born Mikaela Mullaney Straus) Prophet was pulled from her well-received full-length debut Cheap Queen. It's a debut that could have come a full decade ago. Straus, the daughter of a recording engineer, was originally offered the chance to sign with a label at the ripe old age of eleven, but wise beyond her years, having spent so much time in the studio with her father and having seen first hand the way labels warped and diluted so many artist's work, opted to hold off until she had fully established her style, base of collaborators, and artistic identity herself.
