Harlem Shakes – Strictly Game

The Harlem Shake is an 80’s dance that started in Harlem and was again popularized in 2000 through a P. Diddy production called “Let’s Get It.” Watch the little kids do it in that video – fly. The extremely stylish dance was all over Manhattan during my senior year of high school, it was overdone but not done enough, it is one of the most entertaining dances you’ll see.

While these Brooklyn rockers may not exactly live up to the name, they do make some pretty good music. Strictly Game is one of their better tracks from the upcoming Technicolor Health. I was a big fan of their Burning Birthdays EP back in ‘06 but hadn’t heard from them in a while, the new stuff sounds  a little more polished for better or worse but definitely a group to look out for.

Make a lot of money, take a lot of shit. Feel real bad then get over it.”
