DJs From Mars have taken it upon themselves to tell the history of dance music in 50 tracks and 4:30mins… click to see the result.

Of course, telling the history of electronic dance music in under five minutes is impossible. But when someone manages to pack 50 tracks into their take on it and does it with video as well as audio, the results have got to be worth a look, whether or not you agree with their selections – right? So check this video from DJs From Mars out…
