Contemporary music mix

For those of you seeking west coast swing music, I’ve got more songs for you for July 2012.  This month, we’re heavy on the contemporary swing songs, but still have some new blues, and one or two more songs influenced by the 60s.   In the last few months, a lot of new R&B and Pop music came to light, swinging us back towards a contemporary feel.

I often find that west coast swing music tends to trend alternatingly towards more classic and retro sounds, then back to pop, hiphop and dance sounds.  I feel like we’re trending towards the contemporary side this month with songs from John Legend, Usher, Flo Rida, Chris Brown, and other similar artists.

As always, thank you to all the various DJs from around the country who may have introduced me to these songs.  Folks, it takes a lot of time to go through all the new songs coming out to find the good ones for dancing for you!  Take the time to thank your local DJ for the time he puts in away from the dance to stay up to date with current west coast swing music!
