If you must belt out “salud señoritas,” and “gracias amigos” to commemorate a very small battle that happened in the state of Puebla in 1862 (all while consuming massive amounts of margaritas), then you might as well do it in style with a killer soundtrack in the background!
We celebrate Mexico’s once victory over French forces with this proper Cinco de Mayo – Party Playlist… …

Corsica Arts Club came on my radar last summer and, with word that they will be releasing their self-titled debut EP on June 9, I thought it was time to share.
The sunny synth pop track “Untamed” is my favorite so far.
It’s a dancefloor-ready track that would fit in perfect on any 80’s mix nestled up against songs by New Order and Erasure.
Brendan Thompson and …
