4. Nina Sky, “Move Ya Body”

It’s on the Coolie Dance riddim. That riddim was used by Tigerstyle and they made a song called “Girl From Pakistan.” It’s a really good danceable riddim. Any song that has advice on what to do is always a winner because a lot of Bollywood songs do that. That’s true across all genres, especially If you think of soca. People need instructions. It’s a DJ trick—if you feel like you’re losing the crowd or they need a lift, play anything that gives them a directive.
