DJ MARKY D’S CHRISTMAS DANCE PARTY
Dec. 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 @ 10 pm ET/PT
Just what you want to find under the tree: DJ Marky D wraps up three solid hours of the hottest club grooves for all the good little boys and girls, and puts a pretty bow on it. Visions of sugarplums won’t be the only things dancing.
BACK @ YA! MARATHON
Dec. 24: 9 am to 5 pm ET | Dec. 25: 8 am to 8 pm ET | Dec. 26: 10 am to 4 pm ET
Jorie Brown wants to spend her Christmas with you! Curl up in your favourite Forever Lazy with a cup of eggnog (and whatever you put in it), while the effervescent host of Canada’s only all-request dance hour plays the music you want to hear, from old-school grooves to big-room bangers.
BEST & WORST OF 2011
Dec. 24 & 26: 5 pm ET | Jan. 1: 5 pm & 7 pm ET
What was the sexiest dance music video of 2011? Which song had the worst lyrics? Who was the best dressed artist? The most overrated? (Could they be one and the same?) Join bpm:tv on a two-hour trip down short-term memory lane, as we walk you through the highest highs and lowest lows of the year that was in electronic music.
TOP 100 DJs OF 2011
Dec. 28: 3 pm to 7 pm ET | Dec. 31: 1 pm & 5 pm ET
From Above & Beyond (#5) to Pete Tha Zouk (#37), Bloody Beetroots (#86) to Laidback Luke (#20), we pay tribute to this year’s finishers in the definitive DJ Mag Top 100. It’s an honour just to be nominated — but it’s better to win.
Dec. 31: 10 pm to 4 am ET
No need to fuss over that playlist: we’ve got your definitive New Year’s Eve soundtrack right here: six nonstop hours of the year’s hottest dance tracks — killer beats to keep you dancing long after the champagne’s been drunk and the balloons all popped. Hello 2012!
