Recommended Dose: Our Favorite Dance Tracks Of January

Jlin's "Nyakinyua Rise" was chosen by NPR Staff as one of the best dance tracks in January.

It may seem like a trivial thought, but one of the purposes of art is to make sense of the times that we live in — usually, though not always, by reflecting them back at the audience, as though through a prism. But great art — and music most definitely applies as a great art — can add a layer of meaning regardless of circumstance.

So, even though none of this month’s tracks were recorded in the past three months, their richness adds a depth, a salve, to the new world that was set in motion. Some do it with their melodies or beats; some do it with lyrics that paint circumstances (which, by accident or design, mirror ours); and some do it with their souls, that ineffable quality that can be recognized but not described.

We keep searching for all of them, all month long. So follow us on Twitter at @Sami_Yenigun (Sami), @raspberryjones (Piotr) and @spotieotis (Otis) to see which one’s we can find — and to tell us about the ones we missed.
