1. Name a record label that releases dance music



Spinnin’ Records (11)
Dan, Josh, Cody Slayberry, Jahq, Math, Dircadirca, James1987, Dobbo, Ethan, Rush, Spinning Adam, Jade

Ultra (0)
Ultraviolence1989

Spinnin' Records obviously wins then, no surprise there as they have been such a prominent label recently and undeniably have the most selling power in dance music. Some of the biggest acts are signed to the label, including Tiesto, Sander van Doorn, Showtek, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Oliver Heldens and Martin Garrix.

2. Name a dance act that has not (yet or at all) released a studio album



Martin Garrix (4)
Dan, Jahq, Dircadirca, Dobbo, Spinning Adam

Oliver Heldens (1)
Cody Slayberry, James1987

Duke Dumont (1)
Math, Ethan

Kygo (1)
Josh, Rush

Pep & Rash (0)
Ultraviolence1989

Years & Years (0)
Jade

Martin Garrix tops the list here as I predicted, it's amazing how little time it has taken for him to become one of the biggest DJs of the now. He is due to have an album soon however, which will feature 'Don't Look Down' and probably 'Rewind Repeat It' featuring Ed Sheeran, which has been floating around as a live rip for a while now and sounds like a big hit. Other choices here include Oliver Heldens, Duke Dumont and Kygo who have not yet confirmed albums, although I imagine they will come eventually. Duke Dumont especially needs to release his sometime soon as it's been 2 years since 'Need U (100%)' was released now, and he said it would be coming "early 2015" but that's clearly not happened. Pep & Rash are correct but do make for an odd choice as they are not as prominent as the others in the list. I very much doubt they'll release an album anyway. Also Years & Years scores no points, possibly as some associate them more with the indie forum (they do have threads in both forums and the mods can't make their mind up on where they should go).

3. Name a music festival that has primarily dance acts playing at it



Tomorrowland (5)
Dan, Cody Slayberry, Math, Dircadirca, Ethan, Spinning Adam

Creamfields (2)
Jahq, James1987, Jade

Coachella (1)
Josh, Dobbo

Ultra Music Festival (0)
Rush

Wrong: Drum and Bass (0)
Ultraviolence1989

Arguably the biggest dance music festival in the world, Tomorrowland, is top of the list here. The other major dance festival, Ultra, gets only 1 person answering it, oops. Creamfields also gets some rep, notably this is the only festival on the list that is in the UK (Tomorrowland is in Belgium and Coachella/Ultra are in the US). Ultraviolence1989 either read the question wrong or thought there was a festival called Drum and Bass. There are many festivals that play drum and bass music but I couldn't find any that are actually called Drum and Bass. It is the first wrong answer of the quiz. Wrong answers will score you zero in this, although there isn't a single occasion where multiple people have chosen the same wrong answer so this rule has no effect on the scores.

4. Name a dance song that went to #1 in the UK in 2013



Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up (5)
Dan, Jahq, Math, Dobbo, Ethan, Jade

Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers – Get Lucky (4)
Josh, Dircadirca, James1987, Rush, Spinning Adam

Martin Garrix – Animals (0)
Ultraviolence1989

Wrong: Lilly Wood & The Prick & Robin Schulz – Prayer In C (0)
Cody Slayberry

It is the truly impactful 'Wake Me Up' that is top of the list here. I'm sure you're already convinced that this is one of the biggest songs of our generation commercially, but its 9 million worldwide sales, 900 million views on youtube and 360 million spotify plays are worth mentioning again *.* It is also one of my favourite songs of all time and one of the reasons why I chose UK dance #1s of 2013 as a question, the other being 'I Could Be The One'. You would never guess what they have in common ohmy.gif 'Get Lucky' which finishes just behind it in the list had similar success commercially too and is a really good song, so great choices here buzzjack. Cody Slayberry read the question wrong unfortunately and put down Prayer In C, which went to #1 in 2014. sad.gif

5. Name a song that its genre is best described as trance



Darude – Sandstorm (4)
Dan, Math, Dircadirca, Dobbo, Ethan

DJ Sammy & Yanou – Heaven (0)
Josh

Tiesto – Adagio For Strings (0)
Cody Slayberry

N-Trance – Set You Free (0)
Jahq

PPK – Resurrection (0)
James1987

Robert Miles – Children (0)
Rush

Armin van Buuren – Save My Night (0)
Spinning Adam

ATB – 9PM (Till I Come) (0)
Jade

Wrong: Shake It Off or Let It Go (have no clue what trance is so ill go for those 2 tongue.gif) (0)
Ultraviolence1989

Only one answer would actually give you points here then, and the defining anthem of trance music has been decided as Darude 'Sandstorm'! One of my favourite songs ever let alone just trance songs, so for that reason I'm glad it tops the list. Well that and me getting more points tongue.gif Ultra doesn't even know what trance is though ohmy.gif EDUCATE YO'SELF GUUUURL. The songs mentioned in the list are good places to start anyway. Although 'Set You Free' isn't strictly trance I'll let Jahq off as the group have 'trance' in their name and there was a trance remix of it that did chart. Either way you get zero points though, oop.

6. Name a non-album single by Avicii (any song that may be featured on Stories does not count)



I Could Be The One (7)
Josh, Ultraviolence1989, Jahq, James1987, Dobbo, Ethan, Spinning Adam, Jade

Levels (4)
Dan, Cody Slayberry, Math, Dircadirca, Rush

Only two answers here as people go for Avicii's biggest non-album singles, the UK #1 'I Could Be The One' being on top here but 'Levels' also being a good shout. Both of these songs are 11/10 moments but I slightly prefer 'Levels' and I'd say that had more cultural impact than any other Avicii song ever released except 'Wake Me Up', so I expected that to be higher. Guess my domination couldn't last all game though.

7. Name a studio album released by David Guetta or Calvin Harris



Calvin Harris - 18 Months (8)
Dan, Josh, Cody Slayberry, Jahq, Dircadirca, James1987, Dobbo, Ethan, Rush

Calvin Harris - Motion (2)
Ultraviolence1989, Math, Jade

David Guetta – Nothing But The Beat (0)
Spinning Adam

Only one person actually named a David Guetta album, further proving that Calvin is far more relevant right now. Who can argue with 18 Months being the top choice though? That era was HUGE and deservedly so, it has lots of amazing songs on it and the quality of that album will probably never get matched again by Harris (or Guetta for that matter)

8. Name a dance song that went to #1 in Thermo’s Hot 50 in 2015



Avicii feat. Simon Aldred - Waiting For Love (9)
Dan, Josh, Jahq, Math, Dircadirca, James1987, Ethan, Rush, Spinning Adam, Jade

Pep & Rash – Rumors (1)
Cody Slayberry, Ultraviolence1989

Alesso feat. Roy English – Cool (0)
Dobbo

Quite an obvious choice of top answer really considering how much I am looning for 'Waiting For Love' right now, guess I should've asked for one other than that to make it slightly more difficult. Rumors and Cool also get mentions though, both of which spent multiple weeks at #1 of Thermo's Hot 50 and are in my top tunes of the year.

You're confusing it with the similarly titled TomorrowWorld, which is in the US tongue.gif

9. Name a Dutch DJ



Martin Garrix (6)
Dan, Cody Slayberry, Ultraviolence1989, Math, Ethan, Rush. Spinning Adam

Tiesto (4)
Josh, Jahq, Dircadirca, James1987, Dobbo

Armin van Buuren (0)
Jade

Martin Garrix gets another top answer here, amazingly beating the likes of Tiesto and Armin who have been in the business since he was in nappies (we are not letting 'diapers' become a thing in the UK sleep.gif ). The Netherlands really do create a lot of successful DJs though, as does Sweden.

10. Name an artist who has had a singles rate in the dance forum



Avicii (3)
Dan, Ultraviolence1989, Ethan, Jade

Calvin Harris (3)
Josh, Jahq, Dircadirca, James1987

Diplo (3)
Cody Slayberry, Math, Dobbo, Spinning Adam

David Guetta (0)
Rush

a three-way tie for the top answer means this question doesn't change things much, although Rush is the only one to choose David Guetta. Looks like he's becoming irrelevant on Buzzjack compared to Calvin and Avicii then. Diplo also is a top answer probably as his rate was the most recent to occur but he is also very big right now, having 2 singles in the UK top 10 right now.

So that leaves us with the final results!

1 • Dan 59
1 • Ethan 59
3 • Dircadirca 56
4 • Jahq 53
5 • Math 50
6 • James1987 49
6 • Spinning Adam 49
8 • Josh 48
9 • Dobbo 47
10 • Rush 43
11 • Cody Slayberry 39
11 • Jade 39
13 • Ultraviolence1989 19

congratulations to um... me! magic.gif and Ethan! wub.gif Danthan slaying everyone in a dance music quiz, only fitting really tbh. Dircadirca isn't far behind picking up the bronze medal. Well done to everyone else who played also biggrin.gif
