No matter what anyone says, humans are united by our love of staring at ourselves in the mirror. It's something Melbourne DJ Mimi knows, she describes dancing alone to her own reflection as "a soul-cleansing and important experience we go through on the weekly. It's an intimate dance party where you're probably the most honest with yourself because no one's watching. It's time dedicated to just YOU."

Ahead of the second birthday of CRXZY SXXY CXXL, the night she co-founded at Night Cat, she made a mix to help you with your "soul-cleansing" alone time. She argues that by starting your night with a solo dance gets you ready for "whatever luck, love or lust might come your way."
