    A Conversation on the Healing Power of Dance Music

    A Conversation on the Healing Power of Dance Music

    On this episode of Queue Points podcast, hosts DJ Sir Daniel and Jay Ray discuss the misunderstanding and underappreciation of House music in today's pop culture, using a recent tweet, by @thunter86, about the current music era as a springboard. They argue against the claim that we're in a grand House renaissance, pointing out that while House continues to thrive in specific circles, it hasn’t significantly penetrated the mainstream pop scene as some believe. The discussion moves on to the impact of Beyonce's 'Renaissance' album and its potential to inspire a broader acceptance of House and dance music. The hosts share their nostalgia for the vibrant dance culture of the past and bemoan the modern music scene's lean towards sadder, less danceable tracks. They champion the myriad benefits of dance, recalling personal experiences with dance music from their youth and discussing the physical and emotional health benefits of dancing. The episode also includes reflections on how music influences community and individual well-being, advocating for more joyous, danceable music in the mainstream to enhance communal joy and individual health.

Hola 👋🏽

Hello QP

Just stopping by to say thank you guys for all you do for those of us who tune to watch and listen to the Podcast. It’s like going to night school in college and you both are the Professors for the QP Class. It is a treasure, I must say. The information that is available with you both is fascinating!!! I’m still looking for the day for QP to have a Show with a live audience. I’m speaking that into existence, Amen. I will keep supporting, watching, listening and sharing for my remaining days on earth. Thank You for this corner of the sky that we all can come to and hang out every Thursday night (including Whatever, Comma). Must love, blessing & music.
