The most requested party songs of 2016!

Check out this list of the biggest party bangers of 2016! Every single song a tried and tested dance floor filler, it's an instant playlist!

One of the biggest benefits of choosing me to be your DJ is that I give you total control over the music I play at your party.  You can do this through my awesome event planning website as it allows you to browse my collection of music and put together a list of your favourites.

Every time I go out and DJ, my laptop keeps a log of every song I play.  It comes in useful from time to time especially if a couple wants a copy of all the tracks I played at their wedding.  I save all the playlists and also use this information to produce a list of the most popular tracks I play each year.

So here we go, the top 100, most requested and played party classics of 2016!
