In the time I’ve spent as the the DJ known as ThaDropout, I’ve come to learn that all other criteria aside, a DJ must be able to rock a party (bottom line). Partying is an essential part of life in that even in some of the most conservative societies, there is still a form of partying.
This of course comes with other cultures that include dancing, fashion and even a wide range slangs and phrases used when talking about partying. One of the most common phrases that I feel is evidence to the widespread spirit of partying is the phrase “to get down”.
It is something that a lot of artists say on their songs and a lot of people use to refer to partying. As a way of acknowledging the strength of this phrase and what it stands for, I decided to do a mix on the show last weekend called “The Get Down Mix”.
This mix is made up of tracks from all over the world that have the phrase “get down” in their title and chorus and it shows the different ways in which different artists call upon people to party when they make a song based on that theme.
Download it, pick your best “get down” song and share the mix.
