EC Twins featuring Guordan Banks. Revolution. #GymJam #lift #burn #indie #NewMusicFriday

It’s Inauguration Day in the US, and this song seems so appropriate. A cover of Tracy Chapman’s 1988 “Talkin’ ’bout a Revolution”, now it’s remade for 2016. The lyrics still stay…’poor people gonna rise up/and get their share’, but now a tropical house beat and Guordan Banks’ sultry vocals propel the track. Out now.

#Top25of2016 GymJams #3: Calum Scott. Dancing On My Own. Tiesto Remix. #GymJam #burn #lift

What We Said Then:

International superstar DJ Tiesto just remixed “Dancing On My Own” by Calum Scott. With this fresh mix, it’s OK to dance on your own! Out now.

What We Say Now:

We really like the original by Robyn, but this cover is remarkable. It doesn’t even sound liek a typical Tiesto remix, it’s beautiful and retrained. In it’s ballad version, it’s almost a tear-fest for yoga or stretching. But remixed by Tiesto? There’ll be no crying on this dancefloor!

#Top25of2016 GymJams #15: Diplo & Sleepy Tom. Be Right There. #GymJam #burn

What We Said Then:

American R&B group Jade’s 1992 hit “Don’t Walk Away” gets a fresh reinterpretation for 2016. Mega DJ/producer Diplo (of Major Lazer fame) and Canadian DJ/producer Sleepy Tom create a floor filler for the club and the gym with “Be Right There”.

What We Say Now:

We’ve only crushed harder on this track since we became obsessed with it in January 2015. It was just the start of another great year for Diplo!

Florian Paetzold. Love Will Never Do. #GymJam #burn

Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” is one of those songs we can never get enough of.

Ultra Naté. Automatic. #TBT #GymJam #burn #classic

On the eve of Ultra Naté’s second-to-last Deep Sugar party in Baltimore, I can’t think of a better #TBT jam than her spectacular 2007 cover of the Pointer Sister’s “Automatic”. Ultra Naté is truly a legend, a pioneer for the dance music genre, and a friend to the gay community. Whether she’s performing or working a DJ set, this icon is amazing.

Calum Scott. Dancing On My Own. #GymJam #yoga

Calum Scott captured the hearts of the UK on a 2015 audition for reality competition “Britain’s Got Talent”. He covered Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” as a sweeping ballad, with just a piano as background. He finished 6th in the competition, but is now ready for stardom with his single release. As different as the versions are, they’re both glorious.

Robyn’s original is here, for when you’re ready to dance.
