    Fuck It, Just Do It – Why I’m Back to Blogging

    I have an on and off love affair with blogging. It started in 2006 when I wanted to start documenting my fascination with dancing and love of hip hop and then I’d share way too much about what was going on in my personal blog. These blogs were super successful and eventually led to a string of corporate jobs, including the one I’ve been in for the past 6 years. Then priorities shifted to running my dance studio, focusing on my job and my relationship at the time. I wanted to write and kept procrastinating, until last night, I thought, “fuck it, just do it.” I say that a lot…

    A Brief History of Locking: The Lock and Short of it

    The History of Locking (Dance) Years ago, Don “Campbellock” Campbell made a mistake. The result was one of the most popular hip hop and funk dance styles in the world today: here is the history of locking dance. The Mocking that Created Locking One fateful day in the early 1970s, Don Campbell was performing the Funky Chicken (some say it was the Robot Shuffle1) in front of an audience when he suddenly realized that he couldn’t remember his next move. He had reached a particularly intricate point in the dance when he realized that he had forgotten his next step. He furrowed his brow and scratched his head, but his…

    Introducing Bboy Ynot: Expect a Funky Good Time

    In between the studio, hotel and copious amounts of Starbucks, Ynot took the time to answer a few questions about his art, life, what’s hot and the upcoming Top Rock City Event at Destructive Steps 4 this Saturday, 14 July 2012.  Who is Ynot? Ynot is an artist. An everything man. He does it all. From dancing, to music, to painting, to design… anything and everything that is considered art. What defines you and your style of dancing? I think the music and the feeling I have at that moment defines me when I dance. My style is based on my life experiences and the time I spent with the culture of Hip Hop. How did you become…

    Darrio Phillips gets his Groove on!

    The legendary 59-year-old street dancer Darrio Phillips shares his life’s philosophy and secret to keeping in shape. Darrio is someone…? Who loves people and dance and tries to live a spiritual philosophical life. He’s hooked on learning a little about everything, but adores his imagination even more. Tell me about your style of dancing? It is Freestyle. I see it as the freedom to express all the light and dark complexities of my life – the playful and moody way to have fun and use my imagination. One of my favourite dance styles today is Krump and as far as moves go I’d say it has to be Grooving. How…

    [Mixtapes] Musical Tributes to Amy Winehouse

    RIP Amy Winehouse (14 Sept 1983 – 23 July 2011) I love Amy Winehouse’s music and found myself wanting to mourn the troubled but talented artist by listening to mash ups of her music. I’m a huge fan of original records mixed with the modern samples so my favourite tribute is done by the Stolen Records crew of Aussie radio station Fbi 94.5fm. Here I’ve compiled a bunch of Amy Winehouse tributes for you guys to hear.       Stolen Records – Back to Black: A Tribute to Miss Winehouse Back To Black: A Tribute to Miss Winehouse by Stolen Records Skrillionaires on Mixcloud Download: Back to Black – Amy…
