Last Friday, I did my weekly ritual of heading down to DC for Red Fridays @ U Street Music Hall. Normally I roll by myself, then a few of my buddies show up and we dance like crazy. And if they don’t accompany me, then I dance by myself and have a blast.
But last Friday I bought a friend with me…someone who’s never gone house dancing before.
If you’ve never gone house dancing, let alone house dancing with me, then you are in for a wild night of non-stop dancing. I don’t stop. I dance all night. I laugh. I twerk. I salsa. I get sweaty. I sweat. Oh, and I sweat. Clothes dripping wet from hours of cardio. But as long as I’ve got some water and some good music, then I’m straight. But if the DJ of the night decides to tease my ears with some deep x jackin’ house, then I’m going to loose all control.
And I did. At the last minute on Friday, right when I proceeded to call it quits around 2:25am (after 3+ hours dancing non-stop,) the DJ, Sam “The Man” Burns, dropped Bicep’s “Vision of Love” and I tore it up! Well, let’s just say my skirt was riding high, and I was jumping up in the air, doing a lil’ house footwork, and getting super sweaty. But according to the guy I was with, something about me dancing and being so energetic is sexy, perhaps exciting; house music does something to me. I don’t know what it is, but I like it.
I was ecstatic to end the night dancing to Bicep, and it made me think of how infectious deep house and jackin’ house is. When that beat is jackin and punching your body, you’ve got to just jack your body: left, right, up, down, and all around.
Does house music move you? Does it make you shift into a euphoric high? Maybe, maybe not. But one thing I know for sure is that deep and jackin’ house are hard to resist: Dancing is not an option, you must shake yo rump!
Check out “Vision of Love” and fall in love with Bicep’s Boiler Room Mix. Hands down, one of the best Boiler room mixes!
