Ephwurd is back with another festival-ready heater, “Hectic,” a massive collaboration with SWAGE inspired by his undying love for '90s era dance floor classics.

Since the song is such a great fit for the now widespread shuffling trend that has swept through the world of dance music, Ephwurd and SWAGE have decided to launch a one-of-kind shuffling competition chock full of great prizes and promotional opportunities.

Check out the entry requirements below, and may the best shuffler(s) win!
