Boom Boom Blog time kids! Love this collection, it came to me in chunks, with long pauses in the middle, but it's here and it's ALL IN. :) Lets start talking about the MUSIC!!!

Alex Newell - Just before writing this I watched that Davey Wavey video about old queens and then I popped this song back on and it occurred to me that Alex Newell is exactlty what I was fighting for all these years. For a young chubby black femme queen with incredible amounts of talent to be able to be MAINSTREAM in a Sylvester way but broader. Ya know?
Ari "Focus" - So is Focus leading to another single, video, album, tour? This mix is too big for you to ignore, focus on it.
Troye Sivan - Honestly, HE was the top of my Best of 2015 List. I love both mixes of this song, Wideboys absolutely killing it both times! I like to listen back to back, I cant get enough of it. Gives me hope in Queer Millennial Art.
Adele - As you kids know I struggle with Adele dance mixes, but I think the lyrics to this are so pretty and I could see a DJ closing down a club to it and THAT makes me smile.
Justin "Sorry" - GO DJ KUE!!!
Taylor Swift "Woods" Cosmic Dawn - As you also may know, I don't really trust T. Swift, at all. But when you witness your 6 year old's reaction to her, so pure and deep, you soften a little. And watching her get lost in the visuals of this video, forgetting I was even next to her and hear her whisper to herself "Cinderella" makes you melt completely. (Also, her haircut in that clip, OMG!) This mix is a totally different tone, but kinda gay FUN!
"Lush Life" I thought this was Rihanna for a minute and got REALLY excited. I don't know much about this girl, but the song has got a nice groove.
Yay HILARY DUFF keep going! Love Younger too!
Janet "Burn It Up" Perry Twins - This is some big room, circuit club stuff right here! Perry Twins right in their lane doooooing it! Girls, it goes to PLACES!
Sigala "Sweet Lovin'"- Please get INTO this BAND people!!! Loving them! No remix can compare to the original.
Zhu (feat. Aluna George) Automatic (Marc Stout & Scott Svejda Radio Edit) - SO 2015 CLUBBY! And look at all those names?!?
Bieber "Love Yourself" (Dark Intensity Club Mix) - This one kinda TAKES ME DOWN every time I listen to this collection. I mean, I think there is a New Order "Blue Monday" sample in there - HELLO!
