CLUB DRIVEL: July 2015



After three and a half years of keeping up a monthly dance chart, I've decided do a little re-branding. CLUB DRIVEL is now what I'm calling the chart, and it will double as a column. I was once an aspiring music writer, so this is something of a return to form for me. With all the hours I spend compiling these charts, I figure there's no reason not to spend a bit more time and write up each track. Write-ups should make the whole thing a bit more useful and visible, and that's a challenge I'm up for. It will be a work in progress for some time to come, but hopefully within a year's time, I will have many of the kinks worked out in terms of formatting, branding, etc.

I will continue posting playlists of the chart in the usual places (8tracks, Spotify, Resident Advisor, and Beatport). So if you're accustomed to streaming the chart, not much will change for you.

If you have followed my charts in the past, I ask that you please blast this around social media and help me get the word out. It would be much appreciated. And now, on with the show.

Full column after the jump.

Best Dance Songs of 2015 (First Half)

Alternate playlist on Spotify
The time has come to sift through all my dance charts from the first half of 2015 and pare it down to the best of the best—the songs that that are the most unique, adventurous, boundary-pushing, and have kept on giving month after month. Like last year, this year seems to be devoid of any one central theme. Many genres are represented. Electronic dance music seems to be as splintered and disparate as ever (and that's how it should be).

Check the SoundCloud playlist above for easy consumption or an abridged Spotify playlist if you prefer.
