SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): GIMM+ICKY – “Shake That”
More proof that there is more than country in music city. Nashville-based pop duo Gimm & Icky made an explosion on the club chart earlier this year with the infectious “Shake That.” The ode to female grinding is a combination of sung/rap vocals over a radio-friendly dance groove with a rock feel. Unlike other tracks of this nature that might be considered to be demeaning to woman, “Shake That” is much more celebratory and respectful with a bit of the tongue-in-cheek, snarky sensibility of their other tracks like “Dump Me” and “Serious Face.” The plethora of remixes by Jump Smokers, Lynnwood, Dirty Freqs, and Papercha$er take the song in many aggressive electro directions while keeping the fun of the original in place.
