So I am in New York City for the week. Black Shag and I DJ'd in Montreal last weekend to a very enthusiastic crowd and our biggest observation about Canadians was their overall laid back attitudes and lack of pretension. In general American scenesters just seem to be a bit too jaded. That said, from what I am told New Yorkers are the most unpretentious, accepting group of people on the planet and I look forward to seeing them prove it. Tonite I DJ in Brooklyn for the east coast debut of SF's Donuts party and in honor of the occasion I am posting one of my deepest boogie cuts from Castro Valley, California, just south of Oakland.
Squirmin Herman put out two 12 inch singles on their own To The Top Productions label. I have them both but the second and more rare Move and Shake your Body is the superior release. Move and Shake is from 1988, a late period boogie number with some modern elements but I imagine it might have sounded a bit dated upon its release. Either way, its a heavy record. This is one of my secret weapons and I am sharing it with you because that's how we roll in a post modern un-jaded America.
