KSHMR, Jeremy Oceans: 'One More Round' ('Garena Free Fire' theme song)
What better way to kick off our the day than with a song from a genre that's all about dancing. KSHMR and Jeremy Oceans' collaborative EDM effort 'One More Round' was released on October 15 and features as the theme song for the popular battle arena mobile game 'Garena Free Fire'. The song opens with dreamy vocals and a steady beat before bursting into anthemic and hyper-electrified synth. If your music-playing at home includes both self-indulgent partying and waking up the neighbors, you'll want to add this song to your playlist, or click play on the video below:
Roddy Ricch: 'The Box' and Class Fools & EQRIC Remix
Have you ever listened to a minimalist, scaled-back hip-hop track and still felt the itch to dance to it? Even if the song wasn't composed of densely thick musical layers or overwhelming beats, you knew there was something infectious about the song that was connected to an inner need to move your body to the rhythm. Roddy Ricch's 'The Box' which release early this year strikes hard as one of those tracks. We've listed both the original and Class Fools & EQRIC remix versions because they're both perfect tracks for the dancefloor.

Dua Lipa: 'Levitating', featuring Madonna and Missy Elliott (The Blessed Madonna Remix)
Pop sensation Dua Lipa released a club-ready remix version of her critically-acclaimed album 'Future Nostalgia' on August 28. Aptly titled 'Club Future Nostalgia' the song featured several contributions from famous names including Blackpink, Gwen Stefani and more. One of our favorites from the album is the collaborative remix for 'Levitating' which featured Missy Elliot and Madonna. The remix carries a funky, cybernetic energy and kicks up the tempo a few BPM as opposed to its '80s, disco-toned original.
Tiësto: 'The Business'
A Dutch DJ who's no stranger to leading audiences to dancefloors, Tiësto released 'The Business' on September 25. Once the snap of the beat kicks in, the vocals are elevated, and the song subtly applies richer, melodic layers, the catchy spell will be cast and you'll be putting this song on repeat.
Alesso x Charlotte Lawrence - 'The End'
We wrap up our playlist today with the dreamy dance track 'The End'. You could just as easily float away to this song with earphones as you could disappear on the dancefloor. Charlotte Lawrence's honey-dripped vocals are enchanting while Alesso's music carries a slight tropical resonance and heavy-hearted effervescence. Check out the official music video below.
