Stylist – 80’s


Sandrine Dulermo & Michael Labica are London based fashion & beauty photographers. The SM duo favours the phantasms which a camera can summon under full light, or in shadows. For about ten years, they have been experimenting to reach  a certain perspective, to show a deep appreciation and concern for what is or could be beautiful. Even more, they strive to make each feeling palpable. Some artists keep placing their trust in them, even though the SM duo fancies changing the looks, using not-so-natural expressions… Avoiding mundane positions in the middle of setting deliberately made wobbly.

Diesel wants you to dance, preferably while wearing their jeans. To advertise their Jogg jeans collection (an ultra-flexible jean-jersey hybrid), the brand has created an exciting montage of world-class dancers, strutting their stuff. The A-Z of Dance features the popular styles you know (twerking) and a bunch you’ve never heard of (Memphis Jookin? Whine?). The video will inspire you to bust a move, though if you want to look anything like the performers in this spot, you’re going to need more than a new pair of pants.

The Ukraine’s Greatest Pole Dancer?


c9bc42c688589d3ed7d720fa18da4d61

Ukraine’s Got Talent winner Anastasia Sokolova, has been blowing up all over YouTube with her routines.  Some dare to say that her appeal is only sexual, but pole dancing is a form of performance art.  Although traditionally associated with strip clubs, it combines dance and acrobatics and requires quite a bit of skill to pull off.  Weather your opinion of Ms. Sokolova is that we appeal is driven by the provocative nature of her dance, or by her talent, one thing is undeniable, she’s being recognized for what she does.

Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 11.30.59 AM

This six-year-old break-dancer “BGIRL TERRA” destroys her opponent in this amazing break dance stunt performance. She may have been half her opponent’s size, but that didn’t stop this mini break-dancer from showcasing a fiery range of moves. The pint-sized performer was taking part in the Baby Battle division of the Chelles Battle Pro competition held in Paris on Saturday, 2nd March 2013. Kitted out in a mini grey tracksuit with pink stripes, Terra from London, performed an impressive array of moves. Although a dancer called Jalen won the overall Baby Battle – Terra won Best Dancer.

Siberian Tundra Twerking?

When you think of Russia, you don’t think of masterful twerking. However, this video could very well change your outlook. It’s a girl who has obviously mastered the art of the twerk. With Tyga’s “Rack City” playing in the background, she pulled off some noteworth booty shaking moves.

Forbes Highest Paid Electronic DJs of 2013


dj-turntables

Esteemed business magazine and infamous list makers Forbes have put together the 13 highest paid electronic music DJs of 2013, estimating their earning from live shows, endorsements, merchandise sales, recorded music sales, and external business ventures. While last year saw Tiesto top the list, bagging $22 million USD, this year sees Scottish producer Calvin Harris more than doubling that figure and netting a total of $46 million thanks to over 100 live shows at places like the Las Vegas megaclub Hakkasan (for which he received up to $200,000 per night). He also receives revenue from his songwriting work for megastars like Rihanna, meaning he ends up taking home even more money than the likes of Jay-Z and Katy Perry. How did he do it? “The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years,” he tells Forbes. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

The Wrecking Orchestra’s Tron Dance.


tron_legacy_promo_image_disc_game_03There are many impressive dance groups out there, all deserving of recognition, but not too many videos have had as much impact as the ‘Tron Dance’ from The Wrecking Orchestra.  This video isn’t the newest, but I felt the need to throw it up simply because every time I run into it on the web, I just can’t help remember how excited I was the first time I saw it.  Check the method below.

The Academy Of Villains.


 

It’s not always likely that you’ll run into someone from a TV show on the street.  But when you’re environment is often populated by talented individuals, you might just run into someone unexpected.  The other day at work, I unknowingly met a member of the dance squad ‘Academy Of Villains’, who had recently blow away the judges on ‘America’s Got Talent’.  After watching another video of theirs for Disney’s ‘The Haunted Mansion’ I was fascinated by their skill and talent.  Check the method below.

The Best Robot Dance


‘The Robot’ has been around for almost 50 years, but some dancers just do it better than others.  Take a look at an incredible dancer doing a dance rendition of Wall-E.

The GREATEST Walmart Advertisement In History.


A while back, one of my best friends and I were driving around a shopping center, and I wanted to stop to grab a few things.  The only store open was Walmart, and oddly, she refused to step foot into Walmart.  After sever seconds of poking and prodding, I just let it go, and didn’t hassle her about going in, but it always made me wonder what certain people had against the store chain.  Last night that question was answered when a friend of mine showed me Mr. Ghetto’s video titled “Walmart” a.k.a. “Wally World”.  The video has cause a storm of controversy already, and is a viral nightmare all over the web.  Just be warned before you watch, it’s quite…. um… graphic.

How DJ Peter Rosenberg REALLY Feels About Nicki Minaj’s ‘Starships’.


Peter Rosenberg’s diss of Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” has been all over the news the last couple of weeks. Watch the video above where he makes fun of himself and the song to hopefully clear some of the tension.

Kate Upton Can Teach You How To Cat Daddy.


Just incase you weren’t sure how to do the “Cat Daddy” (a year ago) Ms. Kate Upton is here to teach. This dance is a bit dated, but I recommend watching it a couple times until you get the moves down.

100 Years Of Dance History In 100 Seconds.


Dance is something that people have used to express feelings and emotions for eons.  It’s my JOB to make people dance, and although I’m proud that I’m good at it, I can still admit that I don’t know all there is to know about the history of dance.  The video below goes through the last 100 years of popular dance in about 100 short seconds.  Check the method.

Unleash Your Fingers.


For the launch of the Galaxy SII in France, Samsung brought JayFunk, the internet Finger Tutting phenomenon, from Los Angeles to Paris to deliver an incredible and surprising choreography.  Check the method below.

Pop Locking vs Ballet Collaboration.


Spike Jonze arranged this collaboration of the world’s greatest cellist with unique hiphop dancer Lil Buck.  This is what Jonze wrote: “The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I’ve seen. Hope you enjoy.” –Spike Jonze.

Behind The Scenes With Trina.


Recently, Trina and Mr. Collipark got together to put out the track “Red Bottoms”.  Personally, I feel like with Trina’s obvious absence from the rap game, a new release may have been met with some skepticism by many, but rest assured Red Bottoms seems to be quite the banger.  The behind the scenes video by Derrick G, and 305 Films shows a little of the thought process behind the video, and even some looks things like dancers rehearsals.  Aside from the back up dancers, (including the world famous, Chi Town based ‘Footwork Kings’) Trina herself engages in some pole dancing wearing a wild yellow outfit and of course her Red Bottoms.  Director Gil Green, seems to have put together what could possibly be quite the comeback record for Trina.  With all the different dancers, different styles of dance, and Trina’s… talents on screen, this video should be a memorable one.  Check the method below.

Ballet vs. Krump in 360 Degrees.


“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle.  There are two components to “The 360 Project”… “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin.  One is beauty, the other beast.  The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue, a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

The Sun Drop Commercial.


I have alot of exciting projects going on, revolving around women, including interviews with 2 British beauties, (Carmel Candy, and Jessica Castillo) and a photo series in May with a German hottie.   But the girl in the new ‘Sun Drop’ soda commercial is something else all together. First of all, this commercial should have for sure been a Superbowl ad, and features music from Snoop Dog, and narration from Fat Man Scoop. But more importantly the girl dancing in the commercial is such a G, you just have to respect it. She starts off rather unsuspectingly, opening a soda, (actually in the begining she almost sort of reminds me of a girl named Kari I had a crush on in college.)  But immediately after opening the soda, she uh… “drops it like its hott” and proceeds to dance her ass off for the duration of the commercial.  Check the method.

Dancin In The Rain…


I peeped this video the other day, and thought it was way too dope to go without posting it.  Check the Turf Fienz doing their thing on the streets of the bay.
