The "Purdie Shuffle" is everywhere and we have it to the extreme at Jim Marshall Clothing. "Created with six bass, high-hat and snare tones, the Purdie Shuffle is a groove that seems to spin in concentric circles as it lopes forward.  The result is a Tilt-a-Whirl of sound, and if you can listen (to it) without shaking your hips, you should probably see a doctor."-New York Times  “It comes from the train near my house where I grew up.  When I first started working this out, I was 8 years old, and I called it the locomotion because that’s what I was trying to capture: whoosh, whoosh, whoosh.  I knew right away that’s what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,” he said. “No matter what happened, I wanted to play the drums.”
