THIS IS MY SOUL: ROX RITE PRESENTED BY HONDA

rox-univ

The industry always represents breaking with a head spin or windmills but rarely to we get to see the dancers for who they truly are. Never do we see a “This is so and so and this is my art”. Musicians and athletes always get to be themselves, companies hire them to be the “selling” point of their products/company. For Honda to feature Rox Rite as “Rox Rite” while also showcasing one of their cars… Read more

We recently posted a picture on IG and FB of a Japanese school girl getting down. The bgirl is rocking that footwork with perfect form, dope Puma Suedes with fat laces and of course a school uniform. Little did we know she was soon to become every bboy teenager’s new “bgirl crush”. The picture generated nearly 2,000 likes on IG and 50,000+ views plus hundreds of shares on Facebook. We knew the picture was “dope”… Read more

RIP BRYAN “BILLY” BELL. VIDEO PIONEER IN THE BREAKING COMMUNITY

billy-banner

Ask anyone who came up in the breaking scene in the late 90′s – early 2000′s “Which are the best breaking vids ever?” and most answers will have one thing in common…’Edited by Billy Bell’. Billy Bell became a legend in the breaking community due to his work alongside Cros One and Freestyle Session. 15 years ago the term ‘breaking community’ didn’t even really exist. The breaking ‘scene’ was still very much discovering itself and… Read more

The Desecration of Notorious B.I.G “Juicy” Track/Sample.

big-blog

Hiphop culture has always been about “flipping”. Taking something that was not ours, recreating it and making it unique to our culture. Bboys/Bgirls flip moves that once belonged to other dance styles or cultures, graff writers flip logos to recreate their names, MC’s flip verses and DJ’s/producers sample or flip music to create a whole new sound. Below we have one of the best rap tracks of all time, Notorious B.I.G 1994 Juicy. Juicy was… Read more

“SAMPLE THIS” MOVIE TRAILER

sample-715x300

Having been sampled over 200 times (and probably many more without proper credit), the 1973 track “Apache” by the Incredible Bongo Band is often referred to as the most influential record in the history of hip hop. This weekend at the Austin Film Festival, a new documentary called ‘Sample This’ will be shown for the first time, which revolves around the song’s creation, the band’s story, and the influence this mega track had on our culture. The… Read more

Poe One: ALWAYS A BBOY.

carlozz

When anyone asks you, “..but what about when you get older?” in regards to your dance, don’t reply to them. They might not understand, but in your head one of the names that should come to mind is Poe One. Poe is 43/44 years old and still going as strong as ever. A true definition of what a “bboy” is meant to represent. Poe does it all and does it with style. The flow, the… Read more

NO IDEA IS ORIGINAL: RESPECT THE ARCHITECTS

resp

“No idea is original, there’s nothing new under the sun, it’s never what you do but how it’s done” is a very well known line by Nas. These lyrics apply perfectly to our community in the sense that a lot of new generation bboys claim moves or take them without giving credit where credit is due. A few years back, I was chilling with Poe One as he was teaching a workshop (amazing workshop by… Read more

Outbreak Europe Hiphop Festival 5 year Ann.

outb

Can’t believe its been 5 years since the 1st edition to Outbreak Europe took place. We still remember the 1st ever edition and how people would question us on why we would have an event like “Outbreak” held in a city and country with not much Hiphop history. One of the answers was, Its about building something new, to cultivate a new scene, start a new journey and not piggy back from cities or countries… Read more
