It's been a while since the hive mind has recommended music that blends classical with contemporary sounds. I'm looking for whatever is to classical what electro-swing is to jazz. Techno is too cheesy. William Orbit is too chillout. Wendy Carlos is too frenetic and ancient. A Touch Of Beethoven is too disco. Waltz Darling by Malcolm McLaren is too 80s pop. Is there anything since the posts in 2008 that blends orchestra with beats in a way that might work on a dancefloor today?

The last song on Fiona Apple's new CD is called "Waltz (Better than Fine)". It makes me extremely happy. Please recommend other songs that will do the same. [more inside]
