He’s the biggest character in the whole fuckin world man. Clarence Reid, man. Blowfly. That was my invention. Blowfly. Clarence was y’know one of my writers, good writer yknow, he wrote “Rockin Chair,” for Gwen McCrae. Good songwriter. So I used to have a little piano in front of my office. Musicians used to come in and sit down. Clarence was sittin’ there foolin’ around with an old song. I’m in my office doin what I’m doin. I hear him by the piano all of a sudden playin “Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay,” but he’s sayin’ “Shittin On The Dock Of The Bay.” I say “Clarence! What is that?” I said “Go upstairs and cut that immediately! We had an 8 track studio above my Tone Distribution office. That’s where we cut a lot of hits.” So I said, “Clarence go up there and put that on tape immediately, so he finishes Shittin On The Dock Of The Bay, and I say come up with some more ideas, man, and cut some songs. So that’s when Blowfly came into existence. Shittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay.

In the early 80’s I formed a company with Morris Levy of Roulette Records called Sunnyview Records.

Although I lived in Miami, the company was based in NYC. I brought with me to this new label Dan Joseph, who had worked for me at TK Records and was one of the best promo men in NYC.

A couple of producers by the name of Joe Webb and Frank Fair who I knew from the streets and the music bidness brought me an act called Newcleus. A rap group from the city.

I was looking for a hip hop act out of New York cause most of my stuff came out of Miami and this was a New York group that was presented to me for a change of pace. When I first heard it, I heard the beginnings of a hit record. Their first release was Wikki Wikki Wikki and I thought it was just kooky enough to be a hit.

In July 1983 I released a single on the group called “Jam On Revenge” (The Wikki Wikki Song(Sunnyview 7″ 3007)) which climbed to #26 on Billboard’s Black Singles chart.

In early 1984 I had Dan Joseph along with New York mixer Jonathan Fearing do a 12″ remix of “Jam On It” (Sunnyview 12″ 411, Sunnyview 7″ 3010) and hired Morris Levy’s son Adam to promote the record.

Released in March 1984, the remixed version did a lot better the second time around as it reached #9 on Billboard’s Black Singles chart and #16 on the Billboard Top 80 Dance / Disco chart. It was an instant #1 hit in nightclubs around the world and to this day remains an Electro Dance classic.

After the success of “Jam On It” I released their debut album “Jam On Revenge” (Sunnyview 4901), which peaked at #15 on Billboard’s Top 75 Black albums chart and #74 on Billboard’s Top 200 Pop Albums chart.

One other song from the album, “Computer Age” (Push The Button) (Sunnyview 7″ 3013), released in August 1984 also became a Top 40 hit Billboard’s Black Singles chart. During the summer of 1985 Newcleus enjoyed moderate hits with “I Wanna Be A B-Boy” (Sunnyview 12″ 425) and “Let’s Jam” (Sunnyview 7″ 3024).

“Track as Funky as A Million Bowlegged Monkeys!!!!!!!!!!”
– Jerry Mason, The Boogie Report

Jake The Dog was raised on the heavy boom of Miami Bass and the booty shake of the Goombay beat. Booty Shakin’ Time is his tribute to the sounds of rap and bass that he grew up on. The record is executive produced by dance music pioneer Henry Stone, features Miami Bass pioneer Joe Stone, and is produced and engineered by George “Chocolate” Perry, the bass player from the Bee Gees. Now, that’s a lot of bass.

Word from Henry Stone: 38 years ago, I was sitting in the office with KC and the Sunshine Band and had to pick up a third album after two #1 worldwide hits. We were talking about “Shake Your Booty” and everyone thought it was too dirty. But I told them we were going with it. Three weeks later, it was another #1 hit. Now, 38 years later, we are still shaking our booty with “Booty Shakin’ Time”!

Who is “Jake the Dog”? Where did “Booty Shakin’ Time” come from? Some of the answers are in this great article from the Miami New Times.
