  • Wiggle It (Cutting / Charisma) 1990 

Purveyors of the hip-house hybrid, this Manhattan duo combines the pumping sounds and rhythms of high-energy dance music with rap and other funky elements. Rapper Rafael Vargas and mixer Roger Pauletta scored a surprise ’90 hit with the casual chants and inveigling high-energy hooks of the utterly inane “Wiggle It.” With more than a few close soundalikes, the album surrounds the title track with further odes to dancing and fucking, like “House Junkie,” “Booty Hump” and “She’s Got Me Going Crazy.”
