Stromae - Alors On Danse (Sean Finn Remix)

"Stromae is a musical mutt based out of Brussels and hit the world - hard - with 2009's "Alors On Danse". The track hit number 1 in many countries. Basically everywhere it's charted, it's hit the top. It is the type of electronic record, like Yelle's "Je Veux Te Voir", that crosses language barriers. In it's original form, "Alors On Danse" is a pulsing groove track with a subtle melody and rampant horn sounds (horn sounds, like cheese food, may not be entirely authentic) that is the stuff of instant classics. Enter DJs From Mars, an Italian dance duo who's mixes hit hard, but who's mashups hit harder. They paired up - with scorching results - Lady Gaga & Coldplay, Lady Gaga & Metallica, Snoop Dogg & Snap!, Timbaland & Nirvana (just to name a few) and went outside the box to incorporate sizzling electro that sometimes mimicked the songs used as samples.

"Alors On Danse" may have been an easy target due to Stromae's monotone delivery, but DJs From Mars still didn't take the easy route and pair it with some easy-to-recognize tune. They paired it with nearly EVERY easy-to-recognize tune. Samples include: Kraftwerk, Benny Benassi, Underworld, Snap!, Felix Da Housecat, Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock, Bloody Beetroots, Robin S, Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, and more. Stromae's monotone delivery becomes the only constant between the turbulent musical atmosphere of this mashup, and it is hot to see how well it all ties together. While DJs From Mars may be relatively under the radar right now, this may be their launch. And then we dance." Article source:
