Wongo Says “Get Up” and Dance This Summer


Are you ready to boogie the rest of the summer away? Wongo has you covered with this playlist of house heaters that will set the mood!

If there’s one artist in the house music scene that knows a thing or two about breaking a sweat on the dancefloor, it’s Wongo. This DJ, producer, and label boss from Down Under knows a thing or two about busting a move after spending years as a B-boy and dominating competitions all over Australia. More recently though, he’s become a beloved member of the dance music community with loads of tunes like “D.A.D. (Dance All Day),” “Tic Toc,” and “I’m The DJ” while also championing the sound of Box Of Cats as well.

Last year, Wongo kept everyone grooving to the beat while in lockdown with Not For Radio, which included an absolute heater dubbed “Her First Rave,” while reuniting with Kyle Watson and Jeff Doubleu as Pavement Special for “Gotta Get Away.” But now with shows beginning to reemerge and the heat of the summer sun beats down on crowds (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), he’s delivered a second helping of Not For Radio tunes that includes “Waves,” “Dusty Jackson,” and “Get Up” with owie.

Of the three, “Get Up” quickly won our hearts over with its steady beat that quickly puts your feet in motion as the hi-hats help pick up the pace. While it might not seem like it at first, there’s a plentiful amount of energy oozing from this one as spacey blips and bloops fly past your ears and the vocals from owie run through the mind commanding you to “get up on that dancefloor.” It’s almost as if the angel on your shoulder has been overtaken by the devil who is urging you on – but have no fear because he just wants you to have a rocking good time.

It’s 2023, Covid has finally fucked off and clubs are opening up for the 10th time in 2 years. The air is smelling good and you whip out ya USB that you been saving records on. Your eyes glance across a plethora of songs. One sticks out to you though, it’s that bloody Wongo record with owie! In the true spirit of #LETUSDANCE, it is called GET UP!. Because right now we all gotta get up and dance like it means something!


To celebrate the release of Not For Radio, Pt. 2, and to get everyone up on that dancefloor in style, Wongo curated a hefty helping of tunes for you to vibe out to for the rest of the season and beyond. Featuring his own tunes as well as those from artists like Endor, Marc Spence, Sammy Legs, Proper Villains and Cakes da Killa, Loco Dice, and more, it’s perfect for play anytime you’d like to let loose and have some fun.
