Party Music

I was flipping through my CDs (yes, I'm old-fashioned) and I realized that I actually have some half-decent party music. Rinocerose, controller.controller, the Sandinista! album by The Clash, M.I.A., some New Order, other new wave fun, lots of old Jamaican bands (Toots & the Maytals, Jimmy Cliff), and a bunch of other stuff. But then I thought, this is what I'd want to hear at a party. I don't know how many other people would. I go to parties (or hear them from the street) and it's always the same two Usher tracks or something. When Jam lived in the city, he could reliably assemble persons of good taste, but now, what to do?
