It’s that time of year again when the dancing public at G-A-Y decide on their favourite 100 Dancefloor Fillers of all time. Well, for the time being at any rate. The top 100 will be revealed this Saturday in the Main Room at G-A-Y and there’s a countdown simultaneously on #AppleMusic.
We’ve come up with the Boyz Best Dance Music of All Time Awards to point you in the direction of some classic tracks. Not that you have to take our (not very) humble opinion. Now argue amongst yourselves…
