“Tanz dich glücklich” means roughly translated ‘dance yourself happy’ or yet rather ‘dance yourself into blissful joy’
These tunes have been everywhere in the past few (has it really been) years. I’d say 1,5 – 2 years but that whole movement has been going on for even longer. Starting with the rise of a new generation who liked those indie tunes and never saw a valid border between accoustic music and electronic productions. That has been said so often before, but these kids respect both. You heard these songs at all kind of bars and almost at any student gathering, any kind of younger (mind you – hipster) meeting. We have been supporting these tunes with our blog from the very start or as soon as we knew about them, which was kind of early – since we did a complete mixtape series (Sweet Serenade) with the songs these kids use in their songs. I am still and always will be grateful for any kind of new movement, cleaning out old sated egos who just fullfill all the stereotypes – of people representing old clischees (looking at you electronic music gone-bys). These kids are filling clubs and the lousiest promoters are getting their hands on them. All they want to do is have a decent venue with little to no suburban hooligans so they can get their dance on. Heck, i even did a mixtape with most of these songs which you can download here – Barfuss Boogie.
So we decided to gather a young friend of mine or two and hook up a party (regular) with the help of our young buddies LCAW & Dinner Date, whom we intend on promoting. Just take a look at the massive improvement of their production skills over the past year alone. Both them guys topped the Hypemachine at least once or twice and some eagerly over ambitious manager weasels are trying to screw them over – left and tight (again, looking at you electronic music gone-bys and no-timers). So since the party is called Tanz dich glücklich, we thought it might be a brilliant masterpiece (irony OMG) to hook it up with our favourite shop in munich called Kauf dich glücklich, which is the perfect place for those kids and for us. Now you know what kind of folks you will run into and rest assured – there won’t be no compromises. So to get you warmed up, before we release LCAWs official TDG Mixtape tomorrow – here’s a 70min playlist to warm up your grey sunday skies.
Here is a playlist with all the artist whose music we helped (among millions of others) bring to light online. Among them are LCAW – Dinnerdate – Zwette – Peer Kussic – Flic Flac – Thomas Jack– – Milky Chance
