At my university canteen people just stared at their mouldy, barely thawed sandwiches with a blank, depressed face, rain pouring at the window, only raising a smile when someone dropped a plate. Not at Howard University, DC. Its all impromptu dance routines like a real life Grease. And what is this ghettobass hammer thats slaying Chi Town’s line dance favouring wedding dance floors?
Its DJ Chip’s Chicago Juke slide (Pimp Walk Slide), a juke version of that infamous DJ Caspers Cha Cha slide song (no really) and the bassline from Plastic dreams. Resulting in an curious, slightly eerie mixture of 90s Big room Euro house, juke bootyclapping beats and a bad novelty workout song. But it works for me! Any takers?
Now learn the moves ready for those Christmas parties. Unless, like myself, you don’t live in Chicago. In which case i’ll be flailing foolishly around to Heartbroken and Slade. Oh.
