hottest in america

October 21, 2010


my good friend lauren is a fitness instructor in seattle.  occasionally i send her mixes  for personal use for her classes.  these normally include lots of 80’s club tracks, 90’s techno or dancehall because that’s the music i know she likes.  this time, i am sending her the stuff that been getting me pumped up and schvitzy at the y.*

i downloaded all of these songs for free on various blogs.  i have been espousing the virtues of purchasing music (at least to support unique artists directly as possible), but i feel very lucky and thankful for all of the artists that put their music out for free out of love (and hype).  there’s more to say on that subject, but i am just gonna stick to posting the mix for now.  it’s a zip file by design, so she can pick and choose the songs she likes, but my suggested order would be:

  1. drop buddy gal – dave nada
  2. fuego (frikstailers remix) – bomba estereo
  3. me gusto (toy selectah remix) – mexicans with guns f. chico mann
  4. play di ting (the heatwave refix) – natalie storm & footsteps
  5. back beating – brenmar
  6. entre e sai (bassanovva alien disco mix) – zuzuka poderosa
  7. los poderes – rita indiana
  8. hottest in america – kingdom**
  9. five – samo sound boy
  10. mo’chaxo (radio edit) – j-wow & toy selectah
  11. dance in your blood – lamin fofana

as a bonus, i once asked lauren to send me some ideas for arms and abs workouts and she sent me this amazing document that i need to share:
