I’ve just completed a 4 part mix of all the classics from one of my favorite artist Mary J Blige. Broken into a few styles/genres. Steppers, Her Dance Tunes and RnB/Hip Hop Collabos. I didn’t realize she had SO much Heat..
If you are into House & Disco edits and Remixes check out my soundcloud page. I reworked one of The Wiz themes, Mashed Up Big Bro Mike Dunn & Bernie Mack, & Spruced Up A Stevie Wonder classic just to name a few.
Chicago Booty Juke music is huge in the underground scene around the world. The same goes for urban or soul line dancing. With the popularity of hip hop, these other forms of art won’t make it to the mainstream. Of course, some line dances like the Wobble Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha, Turbo Shuffle, and Dj Quik’s Gangster Slide, actually made it above to the surface.
I’m always asked to play the Juke/Ghetto Slide, in and around the Chicago-land area, which will ever remain a classic line dance for all ages, but you have to check out the 5 in 1 Slide. It’s similar in tempo to the classic Juke/Ghetto slide and the Turbo shuffle but a lot more difficult. I remember seeing Curtis Goode from Detroit calling the steps last year at a line dancing weekend in Chicago. Big shouts to Kenny J and Ray Boyd from Philly on the Choreography and for showing love to the Midwest, in particular, the classic Ghetto House cut “Freaks-Ahh Oh” by Dj Deeon among other bangin early 90’s House cuts. Both video’s show the 5 in 1 Slide with adults 30 and older and other nationalities gettin down to the Chi-town sound.
