1. Alesso vs. One Republic - 'If I Lose Myself' 

When Alesso teamed up with One Republic to remix 'If I Lose Myself' it resulted in one dance banger and one 'Best Remix' Grammy nomination.

2. All About She - 'Higher' 

With the chorus chanting "Tonight don't worry bout' a thing," - a lyric that will probably be the tagline of many peoples night - we thought All About She's 'Higher' was one to be included on the New Years playlist.

3. Breach -  'Everything You Never Had'

Watch the video for Breach's 'Everything You Never Had' below and let us know how comparable your night will be. 

4. Calvin Harris & Alesso – 'Under Control'

The second of Alesso's tracks to make it onto our NY playlist,  this time he's teamed up with dance superstar Calvin Harris and grabbed vocals from English duo Hurts for his first (and Harris' fifth) UK number 1 single.

5. Chase and Status – 'Alive'

You can always rely on Chase and Status to get a party going, their most recent track 'Alive' doesn't fail to disappoint as a feel good anthem for just after the ball drops.  

6. Disclosure ft Sasha Keable – 'Voices'

British dance duo Disclosure and 19-year-old Sasha Keable created one of the best dance tracks of the year with this single from the brothers' album 'Settle'. 

7. Gorgon City feat MNEK – 'Ready For Your Love'

North London producers Matt & Kye teamed up with MNEK to write and record 'Ready For Your Love' - the pair describe themselves as 'polished, powerful and party-minded, we want an invite to wherever they're going. 

8. Hardwell Feat Matthew Koma – 'Dare You'

How could we leave Hardwell off a party playlist? 'Dare You' is as good of a track as you'd expect from the world's number 1 DJ.

9. Hot Natured Feat. Ali Love – 'Benediction'

"Benediction in my mind, benediction in my heart and soul"... This track's chilled-vibe is perfect to sooth people into the night and get the party going. 

10. Julie Bashmore Feat Jessie Ware – 'Peppermint'

Taken from his debut album, due in 2014, Julio Bashmore has once again worked with Jessie Ware for 'Peppermint'. It's a team well-put-together we think.

11. Le Youth Feat Dominique Young Unique – 'Dance With Me'

A dance track favourite from 2013 Le Youth's 'Dance With Me' is a must-have on your party playlist, the clue's in the name. 

12. Martin Garrix – 'Animals'

Martin Garrix has come out of nowhere to make it as one of the most promising young DJ's in the world right now, so much so that 'Animals' made him the youngest DJ to ever hit number 1 on Beatport. 

13. Wilkinson – 'Afterglow'

It toped the UK dance chart when it was released in October this year, now it'll top our New Year's playlist.

14. Storm Queen – 'Look Right Through' (MK Remix)

It entered on the UK single chart and UK dance chart simultaneously when the MK remix was released this year, two years after the original. Here's why. 

15. Zedd Feat Hayley Williams – 'Stay The Night'

Zedd and Hayley Williams provide exactly the kind of upbeat track you want to bring in 2014 with.

16. Avicii – 'You Make Me'

Capital XTRA DJ has had countless hits this year we could have included, for example 'Levels' or 'Wake Me Up,' but 'You Make Me,' has a certain uplifting new-year feeling to it perfect for after the countdown. 

17. Sub Focus – 'Turn Back Time'

Last but not least we'd recommend sticking Sub Focus on at your party this year, it already sounds like a classic.
