Get Into a Cold Sweat Tonight at Flycatcher

Herm, who clearly doesn't have enough going on, is launching a new night of dancing and frolic at Flycatcher tonight: "COLD SWEAT, a funk and soul getdown."

To get a sense of what sort of soul jams you might hear tonight starting at 10 p.m., we asked Herm for his Cold Sweat top five:

• Brenton Wood “Gimme Little Sign”
A tasty morsel of sweet soul, the man’s specialty. Not necessarily a dance floor filler, but one that helps set the mood just right.

• Gloria Jones “Tainted Love”
Us DJs gotta sneak in a little history lesson in our sets sometimes. Soft Cell updated this for us 70s and 80s babies, but Ms. Jones had our mamas gettin’ down!

• Bobby Byrd “I Know You Got Soul”
If anyone’s kept the grittiest Funk alive all these years, it’s the B-Boys. Gotta give it up to ‘em so they can turn it loose!

• Marvin Gaye “Let's Get It On (MPG Groove Mix) (Steppers Remix)”
The original version’s a classic, but there’s a strong possibility that it will lead to baby-making. This updated remix moves you forward while taking things a couple steps back to the “two-steppin’ and flirting on the dance floor” stage.

• Stevie Wonder “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours”
A set staple of mine since the Heart 5 days. My end of the night love letter to the dance floor.
