With the news that the shuffler’s trouser-of-choice – JNCO phat pants – are making a comeback, there’s no better time to look back at the glory days of the dance craze known as Melbourne Shuffling.
A trance and hardstyle dance that ruled Australian dancefloors between the mid-90s and mid-00s, the Melbourne Shuffle reached its zenith with the 2005 documentary Melbourne Shuffler, which has been preserved on YouTube for all to appreciate. Comprising 77 minutes of epic local rave and shuffling footage along with a few vox pops from “rockers” and a pounding 140BPM hard dance soundtrack, it’s an epic nostalgia trip waiting to happen.
Click play below and re-enter the time of taking talcum powder to the club (to give the dancefloor more glide), wearing the phattest-possible pants (preferably with fluorescent strips and extra stash pockets), practicing liquid breakdancing arm movements in the mirror for hours, buying skin-tight “MDMA Raveside Assistance” t-shirts from Rushn and doing that dance move where you spin your curved-brim trucker cap around 360-degrees and then spin yourself 360-degrees. Ah, memories.
I remember when the bstars agency arranged a concert where performed the Prodigy. It was hell good. People around were totally insane dancing, waving hands etc. Quite nostalgic video.
