Ep. 56: Eurodance
This week, we’re bopping our heads through the last weeks of summer— to the tune of Eurodance! We reflect on the high BPM European dance music that soundtracked the ‘90s and 2000s, from hits like “Barbie Girl” and “I’m Blue” to CGI-characters-turned-chart-toppers like Gummibär and Crazy Frog. We discuss the controversy around Sweden’s supremacy in music production, Eurodance aesthetics as a blueprint for Mass Bushwick, the Euro-exoticism of Albanian pop stars, and more.
