Due to restrictions placed at music venues worldwide because of COVID-19, many clubs have been forced to practice social distancing by transforming their dance floors into safe dining and lounge areas. DJs are now required to ditch their typical dance set in exchange for a more laid-back, mellow mix to encourage crowds to respect these guidelines. We talked to several DJcity representatives and friends from around the world to find out what are some of their favorite lounge-style tracks from the DJcity record pool.
Check out their selections for the month of March below.
