PLAYLIST: Valentine's Day jams curated by the ladies of Slo' Mo dance party

February 13, 2014|By Ernest Wilkins, @ErnestWilkins | RedEye Sound Board

It's the morning of Valentine's Day. You've got dinner plans, your finest clothes on, but there's something ... missing, right?

Silly Chicagoan! You forgot the V-Day JAMS! Music is beyond important for creating an atmosphere of amour. Don't believe me? Play that Mumford & Sons record during foreplay and see if you don't get thrown out of the house like Jazz on "Fresh Prince." In our neverending attempt to get you laid, RedEye reached out to Tess Kisner and Kristen Kaza of Andsrsonville and Logan Square,  the founders of the  Slo 'Mo Dance Party (a monthly dance party at the Whistler in Logan Square which "welcomes people of all identities, bodies and expressions uniting under the equal opportunistic style of soul music") via e-mail to assist us with curating a no-nonsense list of tunes certified to alley-oop you into the sack. Here are their picks below. 

(If you like what you see, be sure to check our their Valentine's Day bash taking place at Wicker Park’s 1st Ward at Chop Shop tomorrow night featuring very special guest DJ Matt Roan laying down the sex jams. Get tickets here.)
