Get ready for a down right sleazy exotic Popcorn/R&B instrumental haunter, backed up with a relentlessly driving Tiityshakin' rumbler from that legendary label Sauk City, Wisconsin, Cuca Records. .

First we serve you with a moody, sulking saxophone to drag you into the depths of exotic Popcorn. Eerie guitar riffs set the tone for a wailing reed to walk into your head. Massaging your inner senses into a nullification of the rare Northern Soul that usually decorates these pages, as "Camel Walk" burrows its way into your psyche.

Today there are so many spokes strengthening the diversity the "Northern Soul" playlist, with NS at the hub and multiple spines shooting off bringing the rare-soul crowd a wheel of multiple alternative tastes.

Provocative Popcorn/style that an innovative lady-jock like Jodie Lamb would drop on an unsuspecting crowd, well timed, delivered after perhaps another moody taster, and then smash in this tune, to really turn heads.

The diversity at the fingertips of innovative DJ's worldwide, is boundless, and long may it continue..

Flip it over and the "Tittyshaker" genre is knocked completely out of the park.. with a totally insane cocktail of saxophone, twangy guitar, Gatling-gun percussion, all glued together with persuasive belligerence.

Two sides saturated in gloriously distinctive creativity... I wanna hear more of this style...
