Give me more upbeat, dancey music!

I find that lately, maybe because 2016 is so depressing, I really love listening to happy danceable music. Foster the People is pretty much 100% awesome, especially Helena Beat. Other things like what I'm looking for: Beck -- Dreams and Coldplay -- Adventure of a Lifetime. What else should I be listening to?

Puppy Dance Party

I work from home, and I want to institute periodic dance breaks throughout my day, to force me out of my chair and pump me up a little, since I'm prone to desk hypnosis. Also, my dogs think it's awesome when we dance. [more inside]

21 Year Old Hipster Dance Bangers

I'm DJ'ing a dance night at a rock club coming up soon that will be attended by 21 year old hipster types. What are some newer (within the last year) awesome dance bangers I can play to impress them? Genre unimportant but I want to avoid anything USA top 40 pop or too techno-y. Bonus points for non American music.

I'm looking for acoustic covers of techno songs, can you help me?

I'm looking for acoustic covers of techno songs, can you help me? Not necessarily acoustic, but using analog instruments, whether amplified or not (e.g. Clara Engel covers Born Slippy, Stance's ukulele cover of Harder Better Faster Stronger, Acoustic Instruments cover Star Guitar). Other electronic dance music genres also welcome.

Can you help me find obscure funk mp3s to sample?

Help me find just the right online crate to dig in - I'm working on a hipstery disco record (think Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT) and would love to find some old happy, dancey funk/soul/whatever you want to call it to sample, but I'd like to shy away from anything super mainstream or typical. I have no idea where to start, but I know there are all manner of mp3 blogs for other obscure genres, so I'm hoping you mefites can point me at your favorites that will help me address this particular need.

Need some popular dance music recommendations.

I have been enlisted to DJ a high school dance. I need some cool, danceable music that I won't feel ashamed for playing. Now, I myself am a high school student, but my musical tastes deviate a little from what most of my compatriots would consider danceable. Whereas they listen to Basshunter, I listen to Selected Ambient Works 85-92, for example. However, I cannot play music that people will not like. Some suggestions? [more inside]

Similar song to Christina Aguilera's Candyman

Similar-in-style songs to Christina Aguilera's Candyman? I'm helping plan a wedding dance list, and this modern boogie is a lot of fun, but I don't want to be the one that drops "he makes my cherry pop" into this particular dance hall. In other words, it should be clean too. [more inside]
