What does a southern California girl, like myself, do when the East Coast winter snaps into a bloody freezing purgatory? Dance to stay warm of course. While I still refuse to invest in a “Michelin Man” Northface, I am a firm believer in constant motion and the importance of generating body heat. Bottom line: My habit for minimal clothing and fat basslines will always keep me in shape.
It’s sort of a win-win. Except of course when it’s -3 degrees.
In my mind, Sunday is the perfect night to break that tired couch routine and hit the dance floor to test out some tropically inspired moves. After all, you’ve been watching
Downton Abbey reruns football all day so you’re bound to need a reprieve to get that blood flowing again. Luckily S W I M, the night that’s known to go deep: “Deep house, deep bass, deep end,” is back in action this Sunday night offering a little vacation into oblivion.
To get people amped and warmed up for the evening’s affairs, Fuzzy Fotch shared the mix below. Here’s why I’m down for this: any piece of music that invokes even the slightest hint of summer or warmth in any capacity is a major win in my book right now. Music serves many purposes for me, the most important often being my vehicle to escape. In this case, I’m sprinting away from these subzero temps, and towards the promise of those warm summer nights I so desperately crave and miss. Go find your summer night this Sunday at Middlesex as S W I M takes you deep down.
