If you are having an end of year graduation or even an online meetup for the end of the year, then why not add some music to get everyone celebrating together.
We have created a Spotify playlist and a special set from one of Ireland favourite DJs, Donal Dineen. Make some room to dance and turn the speakers up loud! You can involve other friends and family through zoom, whatsapp or skype. Just make sure you keep yourself on mute until you want to talk!

Slide to the left, slide to the right, CRISS CROSSS! Stick this on the TV at home and let Mr. C show you the way....

5. Jump Jump - Kris Kross
