The New British - Release

Shuffling Dance Craze Documented In New Short Film

This Friday 1st August, documentary magazine The New British will host the premier of RELEASE, a film about the latest House music dance phenomenon…

If you’ve spent anytime at clubs or festivals (particularly in London) that play House music over the past year or two, it’s likely you’ve encountered shuffling. This short feature film directed by Kez Glozier and filmed by Sam Hiscox looks at the links between ‘cutting-shapes’ and the Charleston, a 1920s Jazz dance that originated in South Carolina and how shuffling rose to popularity through the UK Funky scene to form a subculture of it’s own within House music. Two private screenings will be followed by dj sets from Acid House legend A Guy Called Gerald and Tee Circus.

If you would like to attend the premiere of RELEASE in the basement of The London Edition, simply send names to join@thenewbritish.com or find out more on the Facebook Event. Check a powerful teaser below…
