Friday Mixtape Buffet

Hello Cyber Friends!  Hope everyone had a good week.  I want to give a big shout out to everyone who came out to the Don Cornelius - Soul Train Tribute Party this past Friday night.  It was quite a funkin' dance party if I do say so myself.  It was such a blast to get down to old school disco tunes in funky-fresh throwback gear and to shake it in a Soul Train dance line!  One of the highlights was the disco edit of the Star Wars theme. Things quickly turned into a dark side disco dance party.  Now if I could direct you attention to the Darth Vader Disco Ball... someone buy me one, please! On a side note, my latest batch of home brewed beer is a Black IPA called Death Star IPA.  I somehow thought that this was relevant.

Well enough random commentary and on to the music.  This week we were blessed with a plethora of mixes and many of them were heat rocks (Note: Heat rocks are different than kick rocks). Below you will find hopefully enough music to keep you dancing through the weekend. Feast your ears on these and as they say, "A dance party a day, keeps the doctor away."

 We've been waiting for Classy Dancer VI for a while now and here it is.  I actually just started this mix, but if its anything like the previous 5 Classy Dancers it is going to be amazing.
Tracklist: Check back soon!
