10 Best Dance Songs We Heard in November

We get it: There's so much music out there, it's impossible to listen to it all. The Fuse staff compiled the best dance tracks released last month

1 / 10

Giraffage, "Chocolate"

Named for the San Francisco producer's pet Chihuahua, this glitch-trap confection lifts our spirits with shimmery synths and springtime-y bird chirps. As winter approaches and the days get colder and shorter, "Chocolate" is like a much-needed auditory burst of vitamin D.

2 / 10

Giorgio Moroder, "74 Is the New 24"

Announcing his first album in more than 30 years, the legendary dance producer and Daft Punk collaborator came out of retirement with this arresting synthy, disco track. 

Britney SpearsSiaCharli XCXKylie Minogue and more all feature on the upcoming record, and with such a strong introduction, we are salivating for the full-length. 

3 / 10

Kaskade, "A Little More"

Once again, Kaskade proves he's the master of atmospheric EDM. His latest single begins as a string-laden ballad on its verses before evolving into the explosive chorus.

4 / 10

MNEK, "The Rhythm"

Rising UK producer/singer MNEK crafts a '90s-inspired dance jam that keeps its throbbing pulse pounding amid the spastic production. If this is the note he's choosing to end 2014 on, we're expecting big things in 2015 when his full-length debut drops.

5 / 10

Grace Jones, "Original Beast"

Grace Jones rarely records new music nowadays, but Lorde somehow convinced the iconic singer/model to contribute to her Mockingjay Pt. 1 soundtrack, producing one of its standout cuts. This eruption of synthesizers and tribal beats is a truly dynamic recording and something that only a select group of artists could pull off.

6 / 10

Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne, "Rather Be (DJ Mustard Remix)"

Hip hop producer du jour DJ Mustard's rework of Clean Bandit's hit takes some surprising steps into EDM territory. At the same time, it has a dash of the "West Coast ratchet music" sound that pervaded Mustard's 10 Summers debut.

7 / 10

Le Youth, "R E A L"

After reworking Cassie's "Me & U" to "C O O L," the L.A. DJ/producer has done it again by turning Brandy's "I Wanna Be Down" into "R E A L." The production is full-on '90s sheen, the vocals are almost unrecognizable, but once those lyrics start coming back, you can't help but get into a nostalgic, feel-good groove.

8 / 10

G-Dragon & Taeyang, "Good Boy"

The K-pop superstars (and best friends) teamed up for this collaboration single that we're deeming the new "Turn Down for What." But there's way more going on here than Lil Jon yelling: The BIGBANG duo glide between singing and rapping as G-Dragon's fast rhymes turn into a crooning bridge, while Taeyang's pre-chorus chants get faster by the second. 

9 / 10

Calvin Harris & Haim, "Pray to God"

Gwen StefaniTinasheEllie Goulding...there are a lot of "It" girls on Calvin Harris' new album Motion. But the standout female collab may be this Haim track that mashes the sister trio's rockin' guitar sounds with the DJ's signature feel-good breakdowns.

10 / 10

David Guetta, Nico & Vinz and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, "Lift Me Up"

On his just-released sixth studio album ListenDavid Guetta explores exciting new sonic territory including this uplifting cut centered around stirring African rhythms. "Am I Wrong" singers Nico & Vinz and South African male choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo both feature on the track that makes us yearn for more EDM/world music mashups.
