Jen Dan: March 27, 2020

While we all grapple with the stressful, unsettling, and life-changing times, I thought a bit of musical uplift was in order – a sonic means to emotionally heal and to escape harsh reality, if only for a few moments…

This playlist is a rundown of my fave electronica/dance-pop tracks through the years that have put me in a more positive, joyful, dreamy mood. I hope the same happens to you.

You can listen to these tunes while taking a break/cleaning/exercising in/walking around your stay-at-home abode.
