Dance party USA teeny bopper type ish?

Looking for a source for DJ dance mixes that lean toward the indie rock/pop side of the spectrum but don't neglect radio dance-pop.

I'd like to find some great DJ mixes (continuous seamless mixtapes) that are dance friendly and prominently feature indie rock/pop and remixes thereof. Mashups are great -- for instance mixing indie artists with more popular acts like Rihanna. Hip hop is okay in measured doses but I find Girl Talk, for instance, too rap oriented. Mixing in more mainstream stuff like LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem is highly desirable. Unknown/generic techno beats for long stretches are annoying.

Trolling on Google has resulted in some okay finds, like this. Basically, I'm trying to capture some of the great DJ'd after-parties of indie rock shows I've been to.

Any suggestions for specific mixes, or aggregate sources of these? Spotify playlists found on sites like ShareMyPlaylist might have lots of good specific tracks, but aren't really good for continuous play in a dance-friendly fashion.

Thanks!!

I'm partial to Theta States, from Metafilter's own Theta States.

The Twelves are fantastic. check out The Twelfth Hour, and while you're on that, dig the adorable dancing robot favicon for that URL.

OmieWise, Theta States is beyond perfect. Not only does it fit the bill for this question, CPI's site is something I feel cosmically attracted to. THANK YOU.

(Still open to other suggestions for this question)
