FALL 2013

Song: Berzerk - Artist: Eminem - September 2013

Get "Berzerk" by Eminem @ http://www.amazon.com/Berzerk-Explicit/dp/B00ESVFRA0
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Good lord, this song goes so damn hard. How could we not do the same?

We went through many phases of falling in love with this song. Kinda like when you see some hot chick (or dude) and then you meet her and find out that she's also a really nice person and that she comes from a loving family and that she's an astronaut who volunteers at shelters for people without livers that bring potable water to third world countries. Yeah, it was like that.

You hear the song and it bangs. That's cool. Then you realize the obvious Beastie Boys/Rick Rubin sound and learn that it was actually PRODUCED by Rick and that Em pays homage on the first verse by throwing a Beasties sound on his voice. Then you hear the various samples from rock and Hip Hop and fall in love even further. Then you hear Em's sick rhyme style and abilities and you start losing your mind a little bit. Then you watch the video, see his fellow Detroit-native Kid Rock and all his other peeps like Slaughterhouse and Rick and how it all looks like a 80s Beastie video and all is right with the world. Eminem works so well because he's a true native and lover of Hip Hop culture. He's here to get paid like we all are but he also respects the art and its origins. Ain't nobody gonna be mad at that.

As for us FUNKMODE peeps, we had to dance to it. And, did you realize, we have NEVER done a dance to an Eminem song before? Crazy, right? But if we needed a song to change all of that, we're glad THIS was the one. It was a perfect way to kick off the Fall session, our students loved it and it's now in the running for our favorite FUNKMODE song/dance of 2013.

Song: Hold On, We're Coming Home - Artist: Drake, Majid Jordan - October 2013

Get "Hold On, We're Coming Home" by Drake @ http://amzn.com/B00F6HOW4M
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: It's not always Hip Hop. Sometimes we smooth it out with some R&B.

In this case, we took our third routine of the Fall 2013 session and made it a specialty dance. We hadn't done an R&B style dance/song since Spring of 2010 and "PDA (We Just Don't Care)" by John Legend, which you can see @ http://funkmode.com/adultdancevideos/spring_videos_2010.php, so we were looong overdue.

We like Drake singing ... a lot. Rapping? Not so much. Acting? Sure. Comedy? Yes! Maybe that was TMI but what we're trying to say is we love this song. It's simple, infectious and it broke us from our R&B hiatus. We hope you like chill FUNKMODE as much as you like funkin' FUNKMODE :)

Song: Ripped - Artist: E-40 - November 2013

Get "Ripped" by E-40 @ http://amzn.com/B00D3CAKDE
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: If you know FUNKMODE at all, you know bringing the King of Crunk and the King of Hyphy together on one track is like having Christmas show up to your house carrying your birthday in one hand and New Year's Eve in the other. So, yeah ... we get excited. And while we don't condone the irresponsible use of alcohol, and we do enjoy being sober quite a bit, we definitely love to wyle out and get loose when the time is right. That time was here and now in this video. This dance epitomizes the style of FUNKMODE. And for those of you who don't know FUNKMODE at all, watch this video and you will absolutely understand what we are ALL about.

As always, thanks for watching, subscribing and supporting the FUNK!

All love,

Song: Turn the Night Up (Remix) - Artist: B.o.B, Enrique Inglesias - December 2013

Get "Turn the Night Up" by Enrique Inglesias @ http://amzn.com/B00ISG3ONS
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: We found this remix while out rummaging through the crates on the internet. We don't know where it originally came from or how it was made, but we were feeling the instrumental (produced by The Bay Area's own The Cataracs) with B.o.B's fun vocals on the verse. The song has super high energy which made it perfect for one final super fun dance in 2013.

For those new to FUNKMODE, if it seems like it's an funkin' party up in these classes, that's because it IS! While we take our Hip Hop seriously, we don't take ourselves very seriously and we know how to have a good time. This was a perfect way to cap off another record breaking year!
