Continuing our series of local shops compiling some of their favorite jams for us, we have a wintertime playlist to get you hot n’ bothered, from Ben Steidel at local vinyl nook Co-Op 87 Records (87 Guernsey Street).

From Ben:

Here’s a playlist of tunes to help us remember that moving your butt, whether on the dance floor or at your desk, is a great way to stay warm during these dark months. Leaning mostly towards slower & smoother grooves, I tried to pick songs that have passed through the store recently, and that are a mix of the rare & obscure, as well as things that you might score in the $1 bin. I also threw in a few new-ish releases. Hopefully they do the trick of evoking warmer climates or the friction of bodies in motion, preferably both!
