Ballerific Music: 31 Songs To Add To Your Labor Day Mix – blogged by @niksolfy

Labor Day to me is all about the family. I have done the yacht parties and secret password soirees. I’m completely over the “all white” and “linen” themes. Labor Day to me is synonymous with private. It’s the one “party” holiday that I want to spend with people that actually know my full government [name] or I would actually invite to my wedding. It’s all about good food and chill vibes. With any holiday and family gathering, you need a soundtrack. I like to throw back to my parents era and mix in some of that new old -school. I will play everything from Teddy to Anita Baker to the Refugees with some Go Go Music and New Orleans Bounce. I have to add a bit of Bad Boy in there and a few classics that get me singing off key. Below are a few of my faves to ADD INTO a mix. The songs usually get the crowd (especially the more mature sector) going which makes for great family videos (…and family blackmail, lol).

Check them out…

1. Anita Baker- “Caught Up In The Rapture”

2. Cameo – “ Word Up’ “

3. Earth, Wind& Fire – “Love’s Holiday”

4. Frankie Beverley and Maze- “Golden Time of Day”

5. Teddy Pendergrass – “Love TKO”

6. Lakeside- “Fantastic Voyage”

7. The Gap Band- “Outstanding”

8. Zapp and Roger – “Slow and Easy”

9. The System- “Don’t Disturb This Groove”

10. Michael Jackson- “ P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)”

11. Mint Condition- “ U Send Me Swingin’ “

12. Brandy – “I Wanna Be Down”

13. Monica – “Don’t Take it Personal (Just One of Dem Days)”

14. Something For The People – “My Love is the Shhh!”

15. Notorious B.I.G – “Hypnotize”

16. Tony! Toni! Toné !- “It Never Rains (In Southern California)”

17. Total – “Can’t You See”

18. Xscape- “Just Kickin’ It”

19. Mase- “Cheat On You”

20. Wale- “Pretty Girls”

21. EU – “Da Butt”

22. DJ FLexx- “The Water Dance”

23. LL Cool J – “Loungin’”

24. Maxwell- “Cocoure”

25. Ideal- “Whatever”

26. 2Pac- “Until The End of Time”

27. Refugees – “Ready Or Not”

28. R.Kelly- “Step In The Name Of Love”

Of course I have to add in my New Orleans tracks. A mix isn’t a mix if I don’t have some bounce in it.

29. DJ Jubilee- ” Get It Ready, Ready”

30. DJ Jubilee- “Back That Thang Up”

31. Definition DJs – Adele: “Rolling In The Deep”- Bounce Remix

Mix these classics in and I guarantee the fam will have a good time.

Have fun and be safe
