While French electro troupe The Shoes wait to see if it pays to cast Jake Gyllenhaal in your latest video as a loner exacting revenge on the world for not landing a spot on the US Olympic fencing team (featuring 80s-style-training-sequence shots of pec deck butterfly reps and treadmill sweat!), the rest of us can enjoy this remix by fellow Frenchman and Ed Banger affiliate SebastiAn. Monsieur SebastiAn drops the tempo a couple notches so you don’t need to be triple maxxxed on a treadmill to catch the groove, and amps up the arms-in-the-air factor by zoning in on the best part of the song- that spell-a-long chant explaining that it’s finally “T-I-M-E-T-O-D-A-N-C-E in the city!” Yep, there are similarities to another French electro-disco jam crammed with spelling bee aficionados and pop/slap bass, but when you’ve got an anthem on your hands, why mess with the recipe?

Back in my college heyday, Chromeo was the band that bridged the musical gap between the salty hipsters and the wayward frat dudes who would wander their way down a country road and light things on fire in my backyard. If there was a struggle over the living room iPod between whether or not to play Annie or Chingy, simply putting on “Fancy Footwork” was the easiest way to settle the score and send people into a frenzy.

“Night by Night” as remixed by Shreddie Mercury (Sidenote: What is this, your roller derby name, guy?) isn’t just a way to settle the score; it’s the hi-score. Mix a dash of chiptune with some fuzzy Ed Banger attitude and you’ll get a dance floor jam that sounds like a Mega Man boss fight when it hits its apex.

Pay attention when you hear this one on the dancefloor. You might see Dr. Wily & Dr. Light engaging in a dance off under the disco ball.
