    The Mix

    Every weekend gathering needs some funk. After a long week of books and lectures, dancing the night away is the perfect release. Here’s a mix sure to turn any quiet hang out into a raving good time.

    Mothership Reconnection by Daft Punk (featuring Parliament/Funkadelic)

    Submitted by Brandon Specktor

    This one is a hidden techno gem- one of the raddest grooves from those most daft of punks, Guy-Manuel and Tommy B. Factor in the funky fantastic-ness of Parliament/Funkadelic, and this song is pretty much the greatest human accomplishment since the Polio vaccine. Play it LOUD.

    Let Me Know by Roisin Murphy

    Submitted by Steven Kwan

    Good for a strong hit of disco and house-flavored European pop.

    Shake That by Eminem(featuring Nate Dogg)

    Submitted by Adam Daley

    This upbeat track has a beat that makes any behind shake whether it’s voluntary or incontrollable.

    Ulysses by Franz Ferdinand

    Submitted by Brandon Specktor

    From the Spoon-esque bass line to the bitchin’ synth riff, this new one from Ferdy should get your toes a-tappin’ and head a-bobbin.’ If you’ve got nothing better to do, check out the rest of Tonight: Franz Ferdinand; be prepared to be mocked by friends and coworkers for weeks to come after the ensuing dance party.

    Satisfaction by Benny Benassi

    Submitted by Adam Daley

    The Grammy Award winning Italian DJ releases this ground-pounding house track in 2002. Good luck listening to the whole song without jumping out of your chair. And don’t forget the music video full of bikini-clad models working construction. Does it make sense? Not really. Does it matter? Absolutely not.
