A Mid-Summer’s Night Playlist – by DJ Iron Mike

We’re nearly a month into Summer 2016.  Our resident music selecta Mike Bacon, aka DJ Iron Mike checks in with thirty of his top dancefloor selections.  Mike submits this playlist just a day after grinding out a 7 hour set at the bacon lover’s paradise known as “Baconfest”!

Be sure to check out the Spotify playlist containing these tracks immediately below the playlist.  For the Spotify playlist, in some cases, the original tracks were used in lieu of Mike’s preferred remix due to lack of availability.
