New York Red Bulls player, Jan Gunnar Solli, has a flair for the turn tables, DJ-ing at night clubs in his spare time. Offering the Wall Street Journal a peek at his party playlist, here’s what he says gets the people going:

  1. “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + The Machine (Calvin Harris remix): “A super crowd pleaser,” said Mr. Solli.
  2. “Lies” by Burns (Otto Knows Remix): “There’s a lot of energy in this track, especially the cool synths.”
  3. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia: “Beautiful sing-along vocals over a fantastic drop. It’ll give you that goosebump feeling.”
  4. “Steel Eyes” by Benji (feat. Sherry St. Germain): “Listen to the sick break and how the guitar and Sherry’s voice just get under your skin.”

Players and their “passion projects”. You dig, Kickettes?

They do, Danny. Got the message, Mr Mancini?
