I Like To Move It - 2010 Mixes

 Erick Morillo's Reel 2 Real original masterpiece gets a re-release with mixes from the guys behind 'Pitbull' and 'Riverside'.


I like to move it, move it... everyone knows the record; little seven year old Jimmy knows it, your dad knows it, your mum knows it and even your grandmother would be able to sing you the tune. In fact if your pets could sing, they would probably know it too.

It is an undeniable part of the world's collective consciousness; a pan-generational musical masterpiece (and we don't say that lightly) created by the now famous international DJ and producer Erick Morillo.

It's not surprising that 17 years after its original release in 1994 its still going. It was recently picked up by Dreamworks for the mighty Madagascar movies and re-recorded by Sasha Baren Cohen and later – staggeringly – by Will i Am.

It didn't stop there McDonalds have poached it for characters in their Happy Meals to sing, Chewits in the United Kingdom have used it ("I like to chew it, chew it!") and even Durex condoms ("I like to do it, do it") have found a place for it. It has simply captured millions of people's imagination around the globe.

The genius behind the track is Reel 2 Real aka Erick Morillo, but the track also originally featured the ragga vocals from the Trinidad and Tobago rapper The Mad Stuntman aka Mark Quashie.

When asked about his record Erick enthused "When I made 'I Like To Move It' as Reel 2 Real, I had no idea that it would turn into the phenomenon that it has become. Even back in the 90s when it became a huge hit, the success took me by surprise. It's opened so many doors in my life, it's what got me into DJing in the first place and it's why I've devoted my life to being one of the biggest DJs in the world. After '...Move It', I produced two Reel 2 Real albums and then the two 'Madagascar' movies reintroduced the song to a whole new generation. It really does have a life of its own".

And now the record is coming out again this summer on Strictly Rhythm. And while I haven't been directly involved in the A & R of this new project, I trust that the Strictly Rhythm and Defected teams will represent this record and bring the record to a whole new generation of kids, clubbers and DJs."

Originally it did very well; the song appeared in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1994, rising to #89, it reached #4 on the UK Singles Chart, hit #3 in Germany and peaked at #1 in Holland and France.

So why is the record suddenly coming back to life now? Simply because it was (legendary New York House label) Strictly Rhythm's biggest record and it indelibly marks the labels 20th anniversary.

Two titans of contemporary dance music have remixed the track; Nicole Fasano of 'Pitbull' Fame and Sidney Sampson of 'Riverside' fame both release new mixes, and if their previous success is anything to go by, this record and its brand new video will be elevated to its highest status ever.

1. Sidney Samson Mix
