Chicago is looking more like the Scottish moors than the burgeoning spring explosion it should resemble at this time of year, so we consider it perfect timing that this new mix from Matt Roan dropped into our laps this afternoon. Brought to us by Crossfader King, it's a non-stop selection of energetic nu-disco and dance pop that has us inhabiting a happy headspace and threatens to actually get us out from behind our desk and start dancing by the Chicagoist water cooler. Seriously, even the intern is digging this.

So let this mix rip and pretend the sun currently hidden by clouds suddenly bursts out to turn into a giant disco ball.
