Ok, so recently, ive been using keepvid.com to download videos from youtube of my favourite performances from dance crews and wanted to share the ones that I saved, and write a little bit about each, So first...
IaMmE: The Brain Bang
This routine was awesome when i first saw it last year before IaMmE were on ABDC6~ its nearly everything i like about Dance, the connecting (Brainbanging) thing is really cool, its creative and we've seen it done differently before by Quest, but the way IaMmE style works pulls it off perfectly, i cant wait to see what else they do in the future (even though its been nearly a year since they won) i still get excited when they tease videos on youtube (I think this was their audition routine for ABDC6)
They deffinatly deserved to win ABDC6.
IaMmE: Pacman & Moon - Trigger Fingers
I havent saved this to my Ps3 yet, but its something else i think people should see, IaMmE's Pacman & Moon take tutting / finger tutting / connecting / brainbanging to the next level, its like watching a puzzle, or parts of transformers all moving together to make something new and cool shapes / parts, its always fun to watch, and then to rewatch it and see something new :3
ReQuest: This Is Street 2011
I think that Parris' Choreography is perfectly executed to a level higher than Jabbawockeez, like, the way Jabbawockeez moves with the music is really precise, each move they dance to goes perfectly with the music, and makes you think WOW~ Parris' Choreo also does this, but i think its better, the routine in the video above is what i think was done for their ABDC6 Audition, i remember seing Blogging Best Dance Crew & Pacific Rim interviews and when asked for a preview they showed parts of their dance for Monster, The routine is cool, it goes nicely with the music, each dance move goes with each sound, its not all 1,2,3,4, The opening song was sexy and they danced sexy to it, the part with SWAGGA was perfectly done (though i do prefer the way Poreotics dance to it x3) they hit hard, they should have gone alot further on ABDC6, i only think they were voted off because they werent American.
ReQuest: Redefined Pollyswagg
Another amazing video done by ReQuest, The video hasnt been edited, the way that they can move is Amazing, moving that slow but also putting the fast parts in then going back to slow, and it works perfectly with the song playing.
ReQuest: Hip Hop International 2011
They came 2nd but deserved 1st, Plague won first place for the UK, i'm from the UK but think ReQuest done better, the opening with the Krumping (I know they're quiet close to Tighteyes) was amazing, so on point and in sync with each other, I didnt likeKrump, but this was awesome, however, i do feel the opening song in which they did the Krumping too went on a little long.Going into Baby Boy by Beyonce was awesome, sexy and then that part where the track slowed down and they went to the floor was amazing, then into SWAGGA, which they changed from what we've seen previously, it was a little shorter too, but still good, i liked the Crown peice part they did.
then lastly S&M, the way that this was done was also sexy (i'm saying sexy instead of feirce because i dont like that word) the Illusion they did with Reimy at the front and the others going down, like they were sinking was cool too.
Sororrity: Hip Hop International 2011
Another routine by Parris, this was really cool, i love Nicki Minaj so the opening to Romans Revenge was amazing, and then they did the part that looked like ReQuests dance to monster where they kind of crouch and the others jump over the legs, then they moved differently and it worked amazingly, I love the fact that the 2 guys in the group also dance feminine, it was on point, timing and syncing was perfectly done.
Bubblegum: Hip Hop International.
I remember looking through a video of HHI with all different crews, and remember how Bubblegum looked like a mini ReQuest and wanting to watch it, i'm really glad HHI uploaded to youtube.
This routine was also really awesome, Parris' Choreo again and its all perfectly done, theres some tutting in there aswell which i loved, the way they moved was unique. They're cute, they're BETTER THAN ICONIC BOYS (i thought i'd throw that in there, I'm sure Iconic Boys are nice guys, i just disliked watching them :3)
ReQuest / Misfits / Bubblegum / Sororrity: The Royal Family - PollySwagg Lesson 2.
So, all the other videos i had watched on youtube before i saved to ps3, this however, i saved it straight to my ps3 and watched it on there, i was impressed, Parris made another masterpeice, I love the fact theres more this time, and its made me think... "Am i more excited about ABDC7 or HHI 2012?" and i think i'm more excited about HHI.
I loved the part with ReQuest at 1:41 where they're doing slow movements with their arms, and it works perfectly, then they change it up a bit with the speed of the movements, then its like "SLAP" It was my favourite part, then we see Bubblegum, which i'm glad Parris decided to include bubblegum this year, they look somewhat scary, the way they're keeping up with the adults, I like when they're all dancing together at the end, and the way everyone moves in this video is amazing.
Ok, i think i'm deffo more excited about HHI this year than ABDC7.
All the above videos make me want to Dance, and give me so many ideas, but all i can do is upper body movements (not very well) i can do a little tutting, but as for ma legs... yea i need to youtube how to do stuff, i cant move well enough i guess hurhur V:
(Its odd, i woke up from a dream today about somewhere i was going with my friend in a car, and ReQuest were performing, and i drove pass them, they were starting as i was getting there, but i missed it D: sad dream is sad :(
