With all this international focus on the electronic dance music movement, there seems to be a shadow placed over the roots of house and disco music. The genre got its start in the underground gay and black dance clubs, and like the “electronica” movement of the late ’90s, the term EDM might just be an acronym so that straight people feel comfortable going to clubs without a challenge to their sexuality. So it’s great to see openly gay dance artists and producers staking their claim on the music and creating quality dance songs about club life. Circuit producer/DJs The Perry Twins follow up their #1 Club chart hit “Bad Bad Boy” with “All Equal on the Dancefloor,” a song with the simple sentiment that goes to the root of clubland – it doesn’t matter who you are, when you start to dance we all come together as one. Scottish singer/songwriter Cameron E Neilson provides an emotional vocal performance that contrasts the aggressive eletro beats of the twins. Newcomer Dakota Green makes his debut with an uplifting love song about his potential love interest who shines brighter than the “Club Lights.” The song sounds radio-ready and it’s quite hard to believe that a record label hasn’t already snapped him up. The song is universal, and with the right remix could rock any mainstream dance floor. Maybe Cameron should call the Perry Twins?
