While dance music hasn't had as huge of an impact on the Billboard charts as they did last year, that's not to say that quality dance music isn't always coming out.

Whether being dropped on the regular in DJ sets or staying stuck in our iTunes playlists for at-home jamming, these are the best tracks to be released in 2014, so far.
