Sultan + Shepard House Party Playlist: Jam Out To Outkast, Jay Z, Queen, Daft Punk & More
Fall has come and the weather is getting a little colder. That means sweater weather and parties are heading inside. Pool party and those outdoor lawn or roof day-drinking playlists will have to be retired for something suited for the house and apartment parties. We asked Canadian DJ duo to provide Sultan + Shepard 10 tunes for your house party playlist and they came back with selections that include songs from the likes of Prince, Jay Z, Daft Punk, Outkast and Queen.
Don't hesitate with any of these as they are all must adds and must haves. They know how to pick their classics. The pair just released their new single "Samba Sixteen" on Armada Records, which you probably should also add to your list as well.
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams:
Thirty years old and still gets the biggest reaction on the dance floor every time.
Prince - Controversy:
He was such a legend that any Prince tune would make this list, but this one in particular is one of the coolest songs ever made.
Ace of Base - All That She Wants
This song contains the blueprint for all modern pop music. 90's electronic, Euro dancehall vibes. Lyrics make no sense. Perfect.
Jay Z - Lucifer:
Jay Z sounds so good on Kanye's beats. It is one of my favorites and a great example of sampling a classic tune and making it even better.
Armand Van Helden - U Don't Know Me:
This was the house tune that beat all other house tunes in the late 90's. Armand was and is still one of the greatest samplers of all time. Mad respect.
Queen: Another - One Bites The Dust:
Freddie Mercury is the man. This tune sounds so fresh and the drummer wrote it!
Daft Punk - Da Funk:
It's not a party if you don't play a Daft Punk song. Still remember being 16 and hearing this tune in France for the first time and having my mind blown. This one actually mixes really well after "Another One Bites The Dust!"
Eve - Let Me Blow Your Mind ft. Gwen Stefani:
Such a jam. We played Vegas EDC weekend with Laidback Luke and he dropped this tune in the middle of his set and everyone went crazy. Super fun.
Ghost Town DJ's - My Boo:
Kind of a smoother late night vibe but so so good.
Outkast - B.O.B:
Still maybe the beat that makes everyone go crazy. Nothing like it before or since.
