Has there ever been a more appropriate duo to program a TGIF party playlist than Portlandian electro/pop/dance/psych popsters Priory?
Well, when your first single (that’s blowing up all over radio as we type this) is called Weekend and is an ode to exactly that, it becomes obvious that they’d know a thing or two about jams that would be perfect to bump on a Friday night.
We’ll set the mood with the aforementioned single and then follow on with the party playlist the boys provided us with, complete with a little tidbit about each track they chose.
TGIF WITH PRIORY
L’Trimm – Cars With The Boom
Subs and a 4 track beat equals women at the party. This or anything off of the House Party Soundtrack with a Cross Colors outfit and you got it covered.
Paperboy – Ditty
Nine Deuce gang related dance pop. Bangers bring the positivity!
Technotronic – Pump Up The Jam
This is the perfect song to put on repeat at a house party, late in the night, just to see how long it takes people to realize that it’s on repeat. I swear this can go for hours if the party is raging.
Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough
Because this is the only punk rock thing happening in our world.
Ja Rule – Extasy (Feat. Tah Murdah, Black Child, Jayo Felony)
Feel good hit of the summer when you need a bigger beat.
STRFKR – While I’m Alive
Every drug loves this song.
Gossip – Heavy Cross
Watch the girls team up into girl power groups on this one.
La Roux – Uptight Downtown
Thank you, La Roux for upping the bpm’s on Let’s Dance and then freshening it up with some new hooks. It was worth it for all of us.
Tag Team – Whoomp! There It Is
I have never not put this one on a party list. It’s just too easy.
Sir Mix-A-Lot – Square Dance Rap
No one sounds like Kid Sensation and the Beatbox! break rules.
JAY Z – Big Pimpin’ - Live
The Roots are playing their asses off and you can feel it.
Warren G – This D.J.
Party in the drop top on the way to the party.
Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It
Come on guys this is how we do it.
Snoop Dogg – Gin And Juice
