FALL 2015

Song: Hood Go Crazy - Artist: Tech N9ne, B.o.B - September 2015

Get "Hood Go Crazy" by Tech N9ne @ http://amzn.com/B00WRVJ46Q
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Can you have a "breakthrough hit" even if you've been a major player in the game for years? If so, then this is Tech's breakthrough hit. Over the Summer, we heard this song being played all over the country and that includes places where you only expect to hear mainstream music. Does this take Tech N9ne from the independent underground to the mainstream now? Guess time will tell on that one. In the meantime, we be some loyal Technicians, so we're gonna keep his stuff in our regular rotation as always.

One more thing ... this feels like a Bay Area jam to us which is why we love it so much. You gonna move out west, Mr. Yates???

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

Song: Now That We Found Love - Artist: Heavy D & The Boys, Aaron Hall - October 2015

Get "Now That We Found Love" by Heavy D @ http://amzn.com/B000W178X4
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: New Jack Swing was a major turning point in Hip Hop music AND movement. Thanks to producer-extraordinaire Teddy Riley (Guy, Blackstreet) and a long list of other producers, musicians and dancers, Hip Hop found its way back to its party roots with an uptempo sound that borrowed strongly from the Swing-era music of the 1920s/30s. When old school cats look back fondly on the times when they were partying out to Hip Hop music, THIS is usually what they're talking about. NJS brought a giant list of new dance moves with it (Roger Rabbit, Reebok, etc) which sparked up any party in the late 80s and early 90s. Add to that the truly distinct sound and it becomes clear why the genre is a modern classic.

As for us, it was time for a specialty dance and we wanted to choreograph to a classic jam that was out before we were professionals in this game. The students and teachers agreed that this was probably the most fun we had with a dance this year.

Song: The Water Dance - Artist: Chris Porter, Pitbull - November 2015

Get "The Water Dance" by Chris Porter and Pitbull @ http://amzn.com/B0116C9HP4
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Funky, funky ... everything funky. That probably should be our actual slogan. The one we use currently about us having "The Best Buffalo Wings Outside of Buffalo" somehow seems lacking now. But we digress ...

More to the point, does anyone NOT want to dance to this song??? The second we heard it, we knew it was a must for class choreo. And, even though it's squeaking by at the last minute, it just might be the favorite of 2015.

Also, you may be wondering about the awkward moment we had when everyone showed up wearing the same thing. We were too embarrassed to talk about it, so we all just pretended it was intentional and went along with our business.

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

Song: WTF (Where They From) - Artist: Missy Elliott, Pharrell, Timbaland - December 2015

Get "WTF" by Missy @ http://amzn.com/B017T1OE5O
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Like many Hip Hop heads, Missy's our numba one chick. She can do no wrong. We were waiting like kids on Christmas for this song to drop and she did not disappoint. This is one of the best tracks we've heard from ANYone in a while. And that video, though! Hopefully, we did her song, style and general awesomeness justice with this dance. Missy, we love you! Can't wait for the album to drop!

Also, supermega props to Timbaland and Pharrell whose contributions to this track helped to make it just ... perfect!
