Many times we are asked for old skool music to be included at a wedding. Often, an hour is asked for to include dance tracks that are featured on George Bowie’s GB experience on Clyde 1 among others. Old skool relates to dance music mainly from the 1990s onward and thus very popular with people who went to school during this time.
Gordy is a DJ does not begin a reception with this type of music as in our opinion it takes time to build up the required atmosphere. While old skool music may not be to everyone’s taste, regularly towards the end of a wedding reception it works very well and keeps a dance floor packed, provided the crowd have an appetite for it!
Below is a list of tracks we have been asked for regularly which we find work extremely well at the right time;
- Artemesia/Sosumi -Bits and Pieces
- TTF – New Emotion 2k
- Nakatomi – Children Of The Night
- Flip & Fill – Discoland
- Gareth Emery – Concrete Angel
- Love inc – You’re A Superstar
- Interactive – Forever Young
- JX – There’s Nothing I Won’t Do
- N Trance – Set You Free
- Mickey Modelle – Dancing In The Dark
- Princess Paragon – Angel Of Mine
- QFX – Freedom
- Ultrasonic – Obsession
- Rhythmic State – Soap On A Rope
- Robin S – Show Me Love
- Livin’ Joy – Don’t Stop Movin’
- Ian Van Dahl – Castles In The Sky
- Scooter – Ramp! (The Logical Song)
- Gala – Freed From Desire
- Basshunter – Now You’re Gone
Sometimes, rather than setting some time aside specifically for this, we encourage such tracks to be included intermittently throughout the evening so as not to alienate too many guests.
Alternatively, if your wedding reception is going on later than midnight, this could be used as an “after party” time between 12&1am.
Whatever you decide, the above tracks are sure to have the desired effect.
