It has been two decades since I produced my last "Top Tune Medley". My previous medleys have traveled the world and are even featured in a full color, printed, historical reference book "The Bootleg Guide to Disco Acetates , Funk, Rap & Disco Medleys".

It is sure an honor to have my work immortalized in the American Library of Congress! Many things have changed in the club/music scene. It is my opinion that the iconic medley is gone forever. Back in the day, there was usually only one club version of a song released. When you were in a club and heard a few familiar notes of your favorite jam – you became euphoric! All it took was a few recognizable notes and you knew you were about to enjoy a favorite club anthem. Nowadays crowds aren’t really sure what they are dancing to until the vocals start. At last count, Britney Spears’ “Gimme More” had no less than 32+ remixes! The iconic version of a song is dead. RIP. With the fracturing of the dance music market into so many sub-genres, it was a challenge to select what I felt was either the most recognizable dance mix of a song or the version that was able to retain the same vibe as the one I usually spin. The other big challenge for this production was the current use of extended no-beat breakdowns. In the context of a medley that moves along so quickly, breaks are a real energy killer. Unfortunately another popular trend is to place most of the recognizable vocals in this beat-less break then follow that with some instrumental “electrified” beats (you know who you are!). For these reasons, a majority of tracks used had additional studio production added so they’d be suitable in the context of my medley. Most of the versions of these songs only exist in DJ Lollipop’s world, which of course only adds more interest and is another reason to listen louder and more intently!

Since I am so blessed to have "Lollipop" fans literally all over the world, I took a global approach to this musical production.  Great dance music transcends language & cultural barriers. Get ready to shake that thang! I worked hard to create a classic mix that accurately represents 2007, and will stay relevant, lasting as long as the first medley I did in my bedroom studio way back in 1981. I'm sure “Lollipop’s 2007 Top Tune Medley” will be one of your new favorite mixes.

Did I hear someone say "iconic"!?!
