Featured Playlist – Rachel’s Set 4/1

john legend tiestoJohn Legend’s rich, soulful voice sends shivers down our spines. Paired with Tiesto? It’s a match made in heaven! The duo’s “All of Me” remix combines John Legend’s sweet, passionate lyrics with just the right amount of Tiesto’s electronic spunk.

Tiesto turned 45 a few months ago and celebrated in true DJ style by releasing this golden track to thank his fans for their birthday wishes and support over the past years.

Check out John Legend’s “All of Me” Tiesto Birthday Treatment remix and the rest of Rachel’s 4/1 playlist here on our Soundcloud page. Hop on the saddle, put your head down, and ride to the rhythm of this great mix!

Featured Playlist – Elise’s Set 3/28

beyonce - partition

Beyonce just concluded her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour a week ago in Portugal thanking her fans and appreciating all that she has – specifically her daughter, Blue Ivy. Even though the show is over, the show must go on because Beyonce’s music has left a mark on all of us! She proves again and again that confidence is the best attribute anyone can have. The “Partition – Dave Aude Remix” adds a pop of electronic excitement to Beyonce’s classic track by bringing out a confident, sassy vibe. Whether you’re driving home from work, ready for a night out, or sweating it out at The Handle Bar, this catchy tune puts just about anyone in a feel good mood.

Check out “Partition – Dave Aude Remix” and the rest of Elise’s 3/28 playlist here on our Soundcloud page where you can also listen to playlists from our other instructors.

In the words of Beyonce, “whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I use the negativity to fuel my transformation into a better me.” Amen. Don’t forget to keep #RaisingTheBar!
