Making a Setlist for a Rap Obbessed High School6th Mar 2010, 01:29 #1
Me and my friends got a gig playing a school dance later this year, and we realized that in accepting this we have to play 'mainstream' and not just blast Danger and The Bloody Beetroots 24/7
What are some electronic songs that generally appeal to the rap group? I've heard MSTRKRFT plays very well, as well as Daft Punk

Busy P - To Protect and Entertain (Feat. Murs)
Mr. Oizo or Crookers remixes might work too.
Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name Of (SebastiAn remix)
The only tracks to come into mind immediately, haha. Other than those, I've no idea: all the rap fans I know tend to like e.g. reggae or dancehall too, and of those genres I know nothing about.
You probably don't want to play downtempo/trip-hop like Porthishead or DJ Krush (Kemuri!), eh? But some real hc hip-hop fans might know (even appreciate) DJ Shadow's Organ Donor. Classic track, ahh.ಠ_ಠ

Rap obsessed school eh? Crookers remix of Kid Cudi "Day 'N' Nite" goes down well with the rap kids over here in England. Justin Faust's and Mr. Oizo's bootlegs of Missy Elliott are also worth a shout
