While it's not officially affiliated with PSY or his mega-hit "Gangnam Style," Gangnam Dance Party tries as hard as possible to sound like it is. To the credit of the people who made this, they didn't try to find a PSY impersonator to rap over these tracks. Instead, they focus on recapturing the pounding, slightly sleazy-sounding dance beats that were a smaller, but still important, part of the "Gangnam" phenomenon. Songs like "Straight Outta Gangnam," "Invisible Horse," and "Hey Sexy Lady" sound like slightly mutated clones of PSY's backing track and very nearly match the original's mix of silliness and danceability. Yes, Gangnam Dance Party is a shameless ripoff, but for fans who need more music to practice doing PSY's signature moves, it might be just the thing.
