Jess, host of Ladies Choice, shares her favorite songs and remixes of 2022.

What a fun year it was to really return to a dance floor — be that a club, a festival field, a dancehall, the corner of a bar, or a house party. Every week, LADIES CHOICE drops an upbeat dance mix and while my goal is to always offer a wide variety of songs and remixes, inevitably a few become favorites and represent, to me, the best of the best. Many of these songs are part of excellent albums, so if you like what you hear - dive deeper.

Happy dancing!

Listen to Ladies Choice every week, as Friday night turns into Saturday morning.

Fond of passing out glow sticks while deejaying, Jess created Ladies Choice as a weekly dance ready, good times mix that also serves as a slice of upbeat escapism from modern day adulting. She has zero musical talent but a love for finding, curating and showcasing eclectic sounds.
