Have some house with your house (music)

Having placed all the other things in the other post, this will be a collection of ... well, mostly house. But not entirely. If you're not in the mood for house you might want to skip to the end.

First up, DJ Steveboy offers an hour-long sampler of some of his favorite house styles. There's prog and electro and deep all mixed in here. It's a fun mix, though I didn't pick out any specific tracks as particular stand-outs. It did inspire me to find some other things, which I've collected into the links below.

Tommie Sunshine gives us his remix of The Chainsmokers' "New York City". I liked the original (https://soundcloud.com/thechainsmokers/new-york-city) when it came out last year but I thought it was kind of repetitive in the middle. This remix is less repetitive and more dance-y.

Ah, the queen of disco. GVRV's "I Feel Love" is a very standard house take on the track, kind of. It doesn't use as many elements of the original as one would like, but it's a good try.

Another straight-up house dancer from PBH & Jack Shizzle, remixing Alan Walker's "Faded" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60ItHLz5WEA). The original is a female-vocal-and-piano pop track with glitch electronica wrapped up in heavy production values. Despite the massive autotune it's not a bad track. Likewise the remix is not bad if you're in the mood for some straight-up house.

Still in the classic house vein, but with better vocals (I think) is Djenergy's "Compass", a remix of the EC Twins track (http://www.blackholerecordings.com/music/albums/ec-twins-compass/). The original is a feel-good dance banger - the remix keeps the power vocals but puts it over more thumpy beat lines and electro sounds. Both are not bad if you're in the mood for that sort of thing.

OK so I promised you all one thing that wasn't house and here it is. An utterly hard-rocking turbofunk track from Msystem. This has so many good chair-dancing things about it I had to include it. It's fast, hot, good horns, funky beats, and bad-ass stuttering electro-funk. What more do you want?
