“How To Break for A Lifetime” with Moy

As Red Bull BC One World Finals approaches this weekend, I was looking at the line up and was excited to see Moy in the mix with many competitors of today’s generation. When my crew, Unique Styles Crew, was coming up in the scene, HaviKoro was one of the crews we always looked up to. Moy was always one that stood out. Back in 1999 we remember when HaviKoro was making noise at Freestyle Session… Read more

Music Matters: Lean Rock’s Story Behind the Break Em Off’ EP

A few weeks back at I.B.E 2012, decided to ask many influential bboys and figures in our community what the future of our community holds or might be. Some of these fellas did not seem to understand the question, but some of them gave really great insight on what they feel the community should be like and hopefully will be like. One interview stood out to me above all, and that is because I… Read more

What’s Wrong With Our Community? Your Opinion.

We want to try something different. We want to read what YOU have to say. It’s easy for us to sit here and write about how we feel but instead we want to hear what you have to say, what you see with your own eyes, weekend after weekend at jam after jam. What needs to change and how should we change them? Point out a problem but it would be great if you could also include what would be… Read more

Our good friends at STRIFE.TV posted a quote from Remind that made me finally want to write about a topic that very much needs to be talked about. “It’s so funny how the B Boys & B Girls have worked so hard to create their own industry, only to hand it over to these corporations to do with what they will.” – Remind. STYLE ELEMENTS. The Bboy/Bgirl community has grown immensely in so many ways. From events… Read more

Words From The Wise: Tyrone of IBE speaks.

We have all seen the video below. The media has too and they have taking it to a new level. “A dutch newspaper posted the Terra vs Leelou, Chelles Pro Battle on their website and headlined it: “Kiddie humilitiates boy”….. How do we protect our youngest dancers ( in this case 6 and 12 yrs) old) from these kind of sensation media and the amounts of shameless quotes on youtube? Promoters, parents, dancers maybe it’s time… Read more
