Happy November! Found below is a countdown list of 30 hot tracks currently being featured in my sets around around the state of New Jersey. In past countdowns, I have separately broken out "throwbacks," but for this month decided to merge them into a single list. Myself, and other DJs, have noted the increasing popularity of dance music at the expense of hip hop, and the top ten hits reflect this trend. Dubstep has also hit the local palette, with entries by Skrillex at #20 and #17.
We welcome your comments and suggestions for other high-octane dance floor selections!
