>• They're rocking a No. 1 hit, "Boom Boom Pow," off The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies). Here's how they'd get the party started.

A Tribe Called Quest, "Check the Rhime" Back in the day, when that song came on all the b-boys would make space to bust their moves.

Kid Cudi, "Day 'N' Nite" I like the new style of rapping and singing at the same time. And the bass line in the middle just gets me hyped.


Treasure Fingers, "Cross the Dancefloor" I deejay now, and right now this is my favorite song to play. It's a rare underground song.

Jungle Brothers, "I'll House You" Hip-hop fused with dance music. That's the era we're paying homage to on our new record.


Black Sheep, "The Choice Is Yours" This brings back memories of going to clubs with my friends and all of us reciting the words to the song.

Daft Punk, "Around the World" Something about that song makes me tingle. It gets me and all my girls waving our hands on the dance floor.


Michael Jackson, "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" Reminds me of dancing to it at my mom's house as a kid, trying to move like Michael.

LMFAO, "I'm in Miami Bitch" They are close friends of ours and have performed with us. No matter where you are, it fits.
