Playlist: The Essential 90s Dance Party

The 1990s was as equally a prolific time for dance music as the 1970s and 1980s, but the diversity in the tracks was something that makes the decade quite special. On one hand, you had a massive commercial resurgence of R&B and its many related genres (primarily hip hop and new jack swing,) and on the other you had a vast pool of electronic music both influenced by and released straight out of Europe. To take it even further, there were some incredible pop moments that sat somewhere right in the middle. This was the era where Daft Punk got their start, where Madonna and Michael Jackson declared themselves proper legends, where the Spice Girls introduced Cool Britannia, and where being a One Hit Wonder was a badge of honor. Whether you’re a 90s Child or just a fan of the music, this playlist is sure to have you moving!
