If there was ever a decade that needed a Dance Party Mega Mixtape, it was the 1930s. Riddled with tragedy and destruction including The Great Depression, the Hindenburgh Blimp disaster and the birth of one of history's darkest political and human evils, National Socialist German Worker's Party AKA The Nazi Party, the 30s were in desperate need of a reason to keep smiling. Luckily there's always been a need for awesome music and with the likes of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald and the Nicholas Brothers (seriously, just you wait, we may have found the greatest thing ever to have internetted) doing there thing, there was no shortage of the good stuff. And yes, we know, there was rampant racism and giant class rifts lurking behind the forced smiles of many of the artists, they were still producing incredible tunes. 

And so, once again, we backstroke into another decade's Dance Party Mega Mixtape. There's big bands, screaming horns, sultry vocals, swingin' jazz and some of the most ridiculous dancing you've ever seen. NICHOLAS BROS 4 LYF!!!
