In her own words
Says Laurie Berkner, “I first thought of making an Electronic Dance Music album of my songs when I realized I was getting a lot of YouTube and Twitter followers who were teenagers. They had grown up on my music and were writing comments like ‘You were my whole childhood!’ or ‘I’ve always loved your songs and still do. I’m so glad I found you on here!’ So, I started to think about ways that I could connect more with those kids.
“I had also noticed how popular EDM was with toddlers and preschoolers, as well as their parents. EDM is so infectious, it almost dares you to TRY not dancing to it! Suddenly the idea of making EDM remixes of my classic songs emerged as the perfect way to combine new music for young kids and their parents with a nostalgic gift to teens who were still fans.”
Engineered by three-time GRAMMY winner Dave Darlington, Laurie Berkner: The Dance Remixes presents an exciting new take on songs that have become early childhood cornerstones for an entire generation, now remixed as great dancing tunes for toddlers, tweens, teens, and beyond.
Older kids will fondly recognize the catchy songs they grew up with, like “Victor Vito,” “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” and “My Family,” while preschoolers new to Laurie’s music will have great fun boogieing to all the infectious beats.
A former preschool music teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started marketing her music twenty years ago from her living room on her own label, Two Tomatoes Records. She is now widely recognized as a pioneer in the “kindie” music genre and was crowned “the undisputed queen of kindie rock” by USA Today. The Wall Street Journal noted “Her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups.”
Laurie has previously released eleven bestselling, award-winning albums.
