Happy New Year!!!

It is 2009, hard to believe. 2008 was a blur. We here at Dancefloor Mayhem had a great year, working hard to promote ourselves and share good music with our readers.

We are always looking for fresh tracks and remixes to feature on the site, and DJ mixes to feature on our weekly internet show on Techno.FM. Also in the creation process is a Dancefloor Mayhem record label - something we feel is a natural step in development for Dancefloor Mayhem.

Dancefloor Mayhem is also a series of club nights in Portland, OR, and we would like to expand our reach in 2009. If you would like to bring Dancefloor Mayhem to your city, drop us a line! Contact us by sending e-mail to: dancefloormayhem @ gmail . com

One last thing - we do host all of the music we share on our own servers, and January is server bill renewal month, so we were thinking of having a very basic pledge drive. All we ask is that if you like the site and enjoy the music, if you could donate anything, even a few dollars, that would really help us out. The donation button is to the right, and is made possible via Paypal - you can donate via a checking or savings account, a Paypal balance, or a credit card. If you haven't used Paypal before, you will have to create an account, but it is a fairly easy and quick process and all transactions are secure.

We will come up with some kind of recognition / thank you gift for all that contribute, probably in the form of a donor roll call (you can always remain anonymous if you choose) and a special collection of free music only available to those that donate.

We'd like to take this first post to also send a HUGE heartfelt thank you to all of the support and love we received in 2008. To all the producers / remixers / labels / marketing people that we work with, this site wouldn't be possible without the music you send us to share with our readers. THANK YOU!!!

And now, for some music:

This first song is featured on the 'Herbert Hatrack EP' from The Nose Candies on Monsta Records. More info on Monsta Records can be found online at Prismatic Tracks. Prismatic Tracks is the parent label for Monsta Records, Prismatic and Figgin'. The Monsta concept is a very unique and fun label - each EP is named after a new Monsta - complete with clothes and a Monsta toy designed for each new creation.

The Nose Candies - Gears (The Fingermonsters mix) [click to download] :: This is a really fun track. Would work well in a lot of sets - there are elements of house, techno and progressive in the mix.

Operahouse is a five piece band from London. They recently released the 'Change In Nature EP' which contains 4 new songs. The track we are featuring here is the Filthy Dukes remix of the title track from the new EP.

FreQ Nasty has been making explosive bass-laden broken beats for years, and is always pushing the boundaries of dance music. He recently mixed Fabric Live 42 and has been busy working with a slew of artists to churn out some amazing new material. This latest track he produced with Propa Tingz and it is a high energy dubstep bomb.
