Best Dance Songs of 2014

Alternate playlist on Spotify
2014 was not the year of any particular sound or movement in electronic dance music. Instead, variety reigned supreme. This marks the seventh straight year I've compiled end-of-year dance song lists on AiMT, and I can say without reservation that 2014 has offered more than any previous year in terms of dispersive themes, genres, rhythms and influences. Gospel house, orchestral house, EBM, electro, ethereal grime, kuduro, jungle, broken beat, UK bass, footwork, garage, new jack swing, and the newly coined PC Music-helmed "cute" movement are all represented on this list, and all had shining moments.

Check the SoundCloud playlist above for easy consumption or a slightly alternate Spotify playlist if you prefer.
