Jersey Shore: Music for Fist Pumping

About six months ago, I started being besieged in the clubs by folks asking for “fist-pumping” music. Having never seen The Jersey Shore, I couldn't figure out how so many folks had suddenly gotten into beat-driven techno.

The folks at Ultra Records are savvier than I am, though, and are capitalizing on the trend by releasing a Jersey Shore mix album.

There are a handful of these albums, actually. But, the Ultra one is the best of the bunch.

Namely, the fist-pumping requests I've been fielding recently seem to be rooted in a playful sense of irony. But, once the songs drop and the fists come out, things generally progress from a sort of shared joke to genuine rocking.

Similarly, Ultra's taken what could have been a quick attempt to cash in on Jersey Shore mania and, instead, put together a fairly epic club mix. And, they didn't scrimp on talent either, blending a host of tracks from Benny Benassi, Fedde Le Grand, Robbie Rivera & Deadmau5.

In all, it's a sharp album — even if you're not a part of the GTL set. And you can check it out below.


MC's resident DJ Chris Lawhorn weeds through each week's releases to find the best, new music.

You can vote on upcoming songs—and hear the tracks that didn't make the cut this week—on his workout music site RunHundred.com.
