Recommend me some music near the intersection of"dance" and "punk."

I DJ at a club
one Friday a month with my wife. We play lots of No Wave
, post-punk, and related late 70s/early 80s stuff; 60s/70s Western-influenced pop from Asia and South America; African pop, girl groups, dub, screw, hip hop - all sorts of stuff
. We love music and we love making people dance.
There's just so much more music out there that we don't know about - and what I need is recommendations of punky, noisy, or unusual stuff with a good beat that you can dance to
. We go for "fun" over "tough" or "scary," in general.
Thanks for your help!
Stuff we play all the time along these lines: Lizzie Mercier Descloux, Dance Disaster Movement, the Ex, Glass Candy, ESG, James Chance, Eternals, Blonde Redhead...
