Dougie on down

By Maria Gregoriou

If you love a good beach party, if you follow what is going on in the nightlife scene and if you know who Rudimental and Sigma are, then you will know that the Beach Cult has been rocking Makronissos beach since the start of the month. The party plans to continue the way it began with massive international names and music to make you dance your stress away.

This Monday the line-up moves away from DJs and enters the realm of American hip-hop group Cali Swag District member rapper Yung, who will be teaching us all how to Dougie while performing the group’s 2010 hit track from the album The Kickback. The song peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100, shot to the number spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and landed at the number two spot on the Hot Rap Songs.

Yung is one half of the band with rapper DJ C-Smoove. After the band’s success with Teach Me How to Dougie – their debut single – they continued to get crowds dancing with Where You Are. The track samples Michael Jackson’s 1972 hit I Wanna Be Where You Are. So if you are a fan of the king of pop, you might be hip-hop dancing until you drop with this one.

Yung will be showing how to do the Dougie – a hip-hop dance that takes a whole lot of shimmying to be perfected – on the beach from 7pm.

Cali Swag District Yung – Teach Me How to Dougie
Live performance by the hip hop band. July 27. Makronissos Beach, Ayia Napa. 7pm. Tel: 99-888327
