    Default Help with "popular" electro needed

    so my wife has been shopping my talents around it seems and now I have a job coming up on saturday. Basically I'm playing a private house party for some rich kids out here. Apparently they really like Deadmau5 and things of that nature and because I play some house I must be an electro dj. (actually I can't stand the shit) but my first duty as a paid "performer" is to please the crowd so creative integrity goes out of the window. I spent about 30 dollars on beatport on various stuff today, but I got so sick of listening to clips of it all that I gave up. So I ask you all, let me know some of the big tunes, anthems, dancefloor killers, anything. Basically it seems they want to listen to the jersey shore sounding stuff. so whatever you want to recommend would help out. Thanks in advance yall. Just make sure it is all easily purchaseable (not a word I know) via beatport or whatever.

    Disclaimer: These are just my suggestions :P so don't take them as final!

    So if they like Deadmau5 and the sort, definitely play the following:

    Deadmau5 - Strobe (Club edit)
    Deadmau5 - Ghosts 'N Stuff
    Deadmau5 - Reward is Cheese
    Deadmau5 & Kaskade - Move for Me

    Deadmau5 is really easy to mix, so anything you get by him should be good for the night.

    Arman Van Buuren - In And Out of Love
    Benny Benassi - Satisfaction
    Darude - Sandstorm
    DJ Mangoo - Eurodancer
    (Tune Up?) - Raver's Fantasy
    Eric Prydz - Call on Me
    East Clubbers - Sextasy
    Kaskade with Tiesto - Only You
    Paul Van Dyk - For An Angle
    Sidney Samson - Riverside
    Zombie Nation - Kernkraft 400

    If they dig some more trance elements in their electro music:

    Tiesto - Traffic
    Tiesto - Adagio for Strings
    Tiesto - Elements of Life

    The Daft Punk songs can probably work too...but I'd be careful if they really like house elements of music.

    Do what... Not ready to play out? I've been djing since 96 and doing it "semi-pro" (because I've always had a real job, or been in the army) since 2000. I really just came to get some suggestions on good tracks because I really don't enjoy the style enough to dig for anything. It's just not my thing but my wife thinks that a straight beat is a straight beat and doesn't know any better so she acted as a booking agent without consulting with me first. I promise, I will listen to everything that I plan on playing and get semi familiar with it all (set up cue points, hand bpm and key etc etc) I promise, I take this very seriously and if I would have known that it was an 'electro' (which isn't really electro anymore but I digress) affair I would have turned it down. I'll probably end up playing alot of house and prog and when I feel like getting a bit dirty I'll drop some electro trance and breaks. I just want to be prepared for anything and that's what the kids are into. Thanks for the track recommendation though, it is always appreciated

    +1 for skrillex, and if anyone likes dubstep his soundcloud is full of awesome remixes.
