Music plays a very important role in setting the tone for a wedding celebration. Whether you pick slow jazz or Punjabi headbangers, curating the ideal playlist that works best for each of your events is essential. Some songs work perfectly for a grand bridal entry, while the same ones won’t work for your haldi ceremony. And as cute as all the viral reels that you saved for your videographer might be, the ever-changing song trends are impossible to chase. What you really need to create a fun and playful line-up of songs is the help of an expert back by industry experience.

DJ Subz of SKP Entertainment, with over a decade of experience on how to get the party going, is here to guide you. Once your partner and you have laid out your suggestions of the songs you want and particularly don’t want, the DJ begins to curate your playlist. “We ask the couple to let us know of any special request songs. For example, their parent’s favorite song, a party anthem and then we build a playlist around this. We don’t prepare too much in advance because we like to assess what the crowd wants, and with our experience, create an unforgettable soundtrack for the event.”

While most of the songs are chosen as the event progresses, there are some tunes DJ Subz says that are a timeless choice. These classics are the perfect addition to your cocktail night for a party like none other. Add them to the set to get everyone, from your aunties to the next-door neighbour grooving on the dance floor. Ahead, he shares his top 5 classic cocktail bangers.

Aja Mahi by RDB

Released over two decades ago, the Punjabi language song Aja Mahi by artist RDB has been a party anthem for years. Its Indo-Arabic melody and electro beats is sure to get everyone’s feet tapping.

Danza Kuduro by Don Omar ft. Lucenzo

This Spanish/Portuguese song by Puerto Rican recording artist Don Omar is a favourite among party-goers. Its electric beats, with Don’s singing and rapping about dancing up a storm will be a crowd-pleaser at your cocktail too.

Shava Shava from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

From its Punjabi beats to its hook step, it’s impossible not to shake a leg at Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan starrer song from the film 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’.

Murder She Wrote by Chaka Demus & Pliers

Another classic that was released in 1993, Murder She Wrote has been a staple for weddings, BBQs, and clubs, thanks to its reggae and dancehall tunes. There’s a reason why this song was certified gold in the UK in 2022.

Do You Really Like It by DJ Pied Piper

A song by UK garage music group DJ Pied Piper and the Masters of Ceremonies, Do You Really Like attracts with its 2-step garage tunes. The single went to number one on the UK Singles Chart in June 2001, and a must-try at parties.

Pro tip: “When the dance floor opens, we like to invite everyone onto the dance floor for one massive group photo, explaining that the couple want a picture with everyone before guests start to leave. Once this is achieved, we count down and drop a crowd favorite track. A mixture of microphone work, dimming the ambient lighting and playing floor fillers in our own special way works its charms for a full dance floor.”
