    Default Croud Pleasing Tracks

    So I was DJing a pretty big house party this weekend and the set was going really damn well. At one point though, a huuugee fight broke out. Literally, I watched a kid pass out in a fucking choke hold right in front of my table. More and more kids started getting involved in this fight and luckily everything kind of moved outside.

    A ton of people left after the ordeal was over and I was trying really hard to get the audience back into the music. I tend to play a lot of electro/house/dubstep and generally your average American kid does not listen to this kind of stuff. I knew I needed a track that everyone knew, so I through on that cudi day and night remix and everyone got back into the music.

    Just curious as to what track my fellow DJ's play to capture the audiences attention and get them back with the groove? Below are some pictures I found on facebook from the set...

    I run into this dilemma a lot - you want the crowd to enjoy the music you play but your not completely ready to sacrifice your taste in music by playing Britney Spears.

    What I periodically do is check the top 40 and then use websites like Hypem.com to look up some electronic remixes of those tracks. That way, the crowd hears a song they all know and love and your okay with playing it because its in a stye you like.

    Some good examples of this are as follows:
    -She Wolf (Villains Remix) by Shakira
    -Love in this Club (MSTRKRFT Remix) by Usher
    -Telephone (Crookers Remix) by Lady Gaga
    -3 (Wolfgang Gartner Remix) by Britney Spears
    -Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Remix) by Kid Cudi
    -California Love (Deadmau5 Remix) by 2Pac
    etc

    Dont know if this is what your looking for...

    Have you tried to play "Black Eyed Peas - Rock That Body"?
    This music is amazing, the lyrics really makes your crowd get back in the mood of dacing, it's a Electropop for me, I really enjoy it (and I'm a psytrance lover :P )
    Also, there is a popular VJ remix of Ke$ha + Black Eyed Peas at youtube too, the VJ who did it is has a lot of DJ skills too, can't access you tube right now to post you the link but I'm sure that's easy to find.

    If you really have to play Britney Spears to get the crowd moving, slam it with some massive dance track that no one was expecting

    There are a crap load of SHIT Britney mash ups but this one does actually work on a Pop/Dance level.
