’90s Dance Party Essentials

’90s Dance Party Essentials

The chaotic musical landscape of the ‘90s turned the decade’s dance parties into places where underground sensations, alt-rock standards, hip-hop anthems, and pop chart-toppers crashed into each other with glee. Acts like Black Box and C+C Music Factory brought club-dominating beats to the world’s streets, crafting smashes out of the wee hours’ most beloved grooves; MTV-era royalty like Madonna and Janet Jackson kept pushing boundaries, minting highly danceable hits that borrowed elements from pop’s leading edge. The anything-goes aesthetic that fueled the rise of alt-rock and hip-hop led to dance floors in the ‘90s becoming unpredictable arenas where brawny rockers, house-pop cuts, runway-ready strutters, and retro-minded novelty hits could flow into one another easily, even when all they had in common was the ability to get people moving.
