By: / January 18, 2013

In honor of MLK Day on Monday, Jan 21, we have rounded up a list of tracks inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic words and wondered – who best sampled the dream?

Why? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech is an unofficial anthem to all types of people worldwide. King’s vision resonates powerfully even in dance music, which has always prided itself on utopian vibes. So when you go off into the free world this weekend listen to this playlist and remember that without MLK, the world today would be a very different place.

Enjoy the music, spread the love and judge people by the “content of their character.” →
