FULL HOUSE

Dance music doesn’t die—it just gets recycled. Note, for instance, that reigning world-crossing pop-charting kings of Euro schlock, Swedish House Mafia, have incorporated two of tonight’s “Decades of Dance” headliners into their own music, grabbing Deborah Cox to belt their “Leave the World Behind” hook and retouching Robin S’s “Show Me Love” for Until One. Tonight, though, is all about the originals, with Cox and S joined by C+C Music
Factory (“Everybody Dance Now”),
Crystal Waters (“Gypsy Woman”), Aubry, and Giorgio. Best do as C+C says.

RECKLESS ABANDON

Despite its more emphatic title, Icona Pop’s “I Love It” isn’t quite as thrilling as Enrique Iglesias’s “I Like It.” (For one thing, the former lacks Pitbull.) But it comes pretty close! Produced by Robyn collaborator Patrik Berger and written by English electro-pop lass Charli XCX, “I Love It”—the lead single from a major-label debut reportedly due later this year—finds this fashion-conscious Swedish duo threatening to wreck shop in all kinds of ways (including throwing your shit into a bag and pushing it down the stairs) over a stomping robo-glam groove with more than a little C+C Music Factory in it. Be assured that tonight it’s gonna make you sweat.
