Melvin Odoom, radio DJ and television presenter, said: “We are honoured to be playing at BAFTA’s after party and we have a few anthems that we'll be definitely showcasing on the night. Here are our top 10 dance floor fillers:
Track 10. Rihanna ft Drake- 'Work'
“This was the first single from Rihanna's latest album 'Anti' and it has proven to be a dance floor favourite over the last few months. This is a must have track for every DJ.
Track 9. Fatman Scoop - 'Be Faithful'
“If you are going to throw a party there are a few things which are compulsory such as drink, people who know how to have a good time and this track from Fatman Scoop if you don't have those elements you have nothing!
Track 8. Robin S - 'Show Me Love'
“When it's time to speed things up you can't go wrong with out some house music and what better than this club classic from Robin S.
Track 7. Tinie Tempah ft Zara Larsson - 'Girls Like'
“Everyone loves a bit of Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu aka Tinie Tempah he is the coolest artist in the UK who has no trouble making hits and this one from Tinie and Zara Larsson is no exception.
Track 6. Montell Jordan -' This Is How We Do It'
“He didn't have many hits in his time but this track from Montell Jordan still has the dance floor jumping wherever we go and if you're lucky we might even play the cheeky trap-house mix!
Track 5. Justin Timberlake – ‘Señorita’
“A classic from JT at his best - always gets the crowd singing along to. It also features vocals from Pharrell Williams!
Track 4. Whitney Houston – ‘Dance with Somebody’
“The ultimate high energy party tune. No female can resist heading to the dance floor for this one.
Track 3. Justin Bieber – ‘Sorry’
“One of the songs that turned most non-believers into BELIEBERS! A must play.
Track 2. Kings of Leon – ‘Use Somebody’
“Huge guitar riffs, amazing vocals. It's an Absolute Anthem. Enough said.
Track 1. Prince – ‘1999’
“A Timeless track from Prince and a great way to honour an icon.”
