Time Out Melbourne

You mightn't think it when he's refusing to play your favourite trashy '80s pop hit towards the end of the night, but there's an art to being a DJ

We asked DJs Wordlife – aka Barney ‘Kato’ and Adam Bozetto – exactly how to get people off their arses and throwing shapes... without fail! It turns out the answer is pretty simple: “The whole idea of DJing is to play music that connects with people," says Kato. Watch our video to see the guys explain their craft.

Want specifics? Here are Wordlife's guaranteed five tracks to get even your gran off her arse:

Double 99, ‘Rip Groove’
Armand Van Helden, ‘You Don't Even Know Me’
A Guy Called Gerald, ‘Voodoo Ray’
Jodeci, ‘Freek’n You’ [Hudson Mohawke Remix] or the MK remix
Justice, ‘Let There Be Light’ [DJ Funk Remix]
