Calling all retired clubbers turned parents getting their kicks these days romping around with their littles at Baby Loves Disco! You can now host a kid-friendly dance party in your very own home, with no need for a DJ. That's right - beloved children's musician Laurie Berkner is about to release "The Dance Remixes" featuring 14 of her best-selling songs remixed into Electronic Dance Music (EDM) style! HOW FUN!?!?!
I got a digital download for purpose of review and oh my gosh, we are LOVING IT!! All 3 of my children (myself included) are huge fans of Laurie Berkner. We often have her YouTube channel on in the background while playing in the living room, giving us the chance to quickly jump up and distract them with some dancing if they start fighting over a toy! So, we found it really exciting to hear the new versions, overflowing with energy. You are literally compelled to get up and dance your sillies out! I think the strong beats have the added benefit of helping young children learn about music and how to keep the beat! Don't take my word for it, check out the music video for the first track, and one of my all-time-favorite Laurie Berkner songs, "We Are the Dinosaurs":

Set to be released on September 22, Laurie was inspired to create this EDM album when she realized many of her longest fans, now teenagers who grew up on her classics, are still following her on social media. Add to that how popular Electronic Dance Music is with preschoolers, toddlers, and parents, it's sure to be a hit!
