A whole lot of wiggling going on, photos from the latest instalment of Dutty Dancing with a performance from Dance Central, and special guest Mat Cant (Melbourne).

So many haters. I was expecting it to be quiet on such a cold miserable night, but somehow we squeezed 500 people into that backroom of Goodgod. Chalk it up as another victory for R&B over everything.

Stay in touch. This was just the warm up, as we bring back the Player Hater’s Ball in the coming months.

Once again the Pineapple Republic massive brought their unique brand of latin and caribbean heat to the Goodgod Danceteria. Special guests Huwston and Klue went deep on the african rhythms and the Doll Squadron 101 cracked necks with a killer live performance.

Here is a mix for you to listen to till the next party…

And some tunes..

Woah. There are few parties in Sydney where people come to dance like they do at Dutty. Maximum jiggling. Intense booty shaking. Great crowd packed into the sweaty Goodgod Danceteria for a night that feels like authentic Caribbean basement party. Big love for everybody that came down, those competed in our Dance off and our winner – Jess Subbs.

Catch you at the next party. Saturday April 26 at Goodgod Small Club. In the meantime, check out Shantan’s dancehall tape…

Listen: Tifa – Body Up

Listen: Ward 21 – Ben U Back Ft. Sean Paul

Listen: DeeWun – Bunx Up Ft. Marcy Chin

Electric Punanny killed this. I was having so much fun, I started backing it up on everybody. Haven’t danced as inappropriately for a while.

With amazing selection and mic skills, Jasmine Solano and Melo X give us a taste of what happens between the sweaty walls of Sway nightclub in New York at Electric Punanny. They brought the vibes. Goodgod’s Danceteria was full with asses bouncing everywhere. We definitely met the booty shaking quota one comes to expect from a Dutty Dancing.

Louis played as well, as did I (though maybe I was a little too turnt). We danced, we drank, we were merry, then ended up at Super Bowl eating Congee.

At 11pm, when the club was empty, we had those doubts that every party host has – “Shit, nobody is going come. Nobody likes us. Think I will eat some worms”.

Fortunately, we avoided a diet of worms. By 12 midnight, the dancefloor was already heaving and a line gathered outside the door of Tatler as folks squeezed into our tropical basement party.

With Charlie Villas, Mike Who, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Tropicante and Sr Bolivar throwing down Caribbean Rhythms more pineapples were kissed, inflatable palm trees were danced with, and all were merry.

Here is a mix I did to keep you going till the next party in mid-August!
