Sorry for the long as wait. I've been busy lately. 2005. Part 6 of 7 Jack60k. Subscribe. Underground Epidemic Productions (www.uep.com.au) has produced a ground breaking documentary called the Melbourne Shuffler. Beginning in the late 80s in Melbournes underground party scene, a revolutionary freestyle dance began to grow and has now developed into the most unique and robust dance style since the birth of Breakdancing. Initially grown from the roots of Acid Techno/House music along with back stepping and psychedelic arm movements. The Melbourne Shuffle has no set steps but encourages individuality and imagination, incorporating dance moves from numerous styles such as miming, popping & locking, liquid and breaking. But the basis of the Melbourne Shuffle has traditionally been the footwork either performed sliding left to right, on the spot or in a triangular direction, but is evolving everyday. Known as Rocking to the Melbourne locals the name Melbourne Shuffle has been derived from international DJs, overseas visitors and the media trying to describe this phenomenon. The Melbourne dancers dont dance for competition or to show off but for themselves, for fun and self-expression. Learning by watching other dancers and incorporating variations into their own style they create an individual style representing their own personality. The documentary traces some of the early beginnings of the Shuffle and shows how it has evolved and progressed into what it is today. Interviews ...

    A lot of hardstyle and trance ravers are white….in house and drum n bass, it’s much more diverse because it’s so influenced by other genres (soul, jazz, disco, hip hop, etc)
