Not really dance tracks

This next song isn't really a dance track, but not only did Pete Tong play it on his Radio 1 dance show, he also included it in his top 30 "dance" tracks of the year. Why did he do that? Maybe because it's such a great track that he just couldn't resist sneaking it in. In any case, whatever Tong's excuse may have been, the fact that he played it is my excuse. You see how that works?

Sampha: Plastic 100°C

A-a-and in the interest of closing out in beatier form, and just in case you missed it, here's this track again (already posted above), because Yes I do!

Radio Slave: Feel The Same (Floorplan Remix 1)

Feeling nostalgic? My 2012 roundup is here, my 2013 roundup is here, my 2014 roundup is here, my 2015 roundup is here, and my 2016 roundup is here.

Happy New Year, fellow forumites — whether you choose to dance or just sit there like a freaking lump.

Hello, reckful... @reckful :)

There was a thread some time ago about Buddha and his MBTI type. This is how I stumbled onto this place, and you. I liked your thoughts.
I wanted to read more of them to see if I would like those too, and I did.

You're clearly pretty active on this website. I clearly am not. Unless necessary, this will more than likely be my only post.

It is likely that a random message from a random person doesn't pique your curiosity the way you piqued mine, especially on the internet - unaccompanied by a tone, demeanor, or a face. But if you're interested in taking the gamble of connecting with a random human who has picked your thoughts as the object of her interest then send me a PM. I'm not certain whether the rules applied to new users will allow me to reply to it, but as they say - where there's a will, there's a way. If there's an expression of interest from you, then I'll figure it out.

If not... well, enjoy the flattery ;)

Apologies to those I've offended with my flagrant disregard for posting something completely unrelated in a thread. I'll try to delete this and kick myself out of the community soon due to the shame of it :p

Pssh. You've done nothing to be ashamed of. Every time someone bumps a reckful dance tunes roundup, an angel in house heaven gets her wings dancing shoes.

On the bright side I need 15 posts to view signatures too so I'll have that going for me before I delete the account :laughing:

(yes, I'm aware of how "bumping" works, no that wasn't a serious statement since all of these posts are within 30 seconds of each other lol)
