Click to listen to Mocean Worker's 'Swagger'

Mocean Worker, the electro-funk project by Adam Dorn, released his sixth studio album, Candygram for Mowo!, earlier this week. Over the past decade, Mocean Worker's tracks, which combine big band style horns and Sixties and Seventies soul grooves, have appeared on countless television shows, movies, and commercials. Songwriter, producer, bassist and remixer Dorn tells Rolling Stone that when creating his aptly named and danceable new track "Swagger," he "wanted to write a song that could serve as a sort of personal theme to lift someone up and put a smile on their face. Give them that vibe to go out and confidently take care of some bidnuss. That's what 'Swagger' is about." Mocean Worker's album Candygram for Mowo! is out now, but you can download "Swagger" for free here.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
