Song: Turn Down for What - Artist: DJ Snake, Lil Jon - April 2014

Get "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake, Lil Jon @ http://amzn.com/B00HFEC192
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: In the hundreds of videos we've made, we're pretty sure we've never danced to an instrumental-only song. At least, not a instrumental Hip Hop song. But this song had everything we needed to end that streak. It hits ridiculously hard. It switches up constantly. It's got incredible energy. And it's blowin' up the internets. Ergo, FUNKMODE dances to it. Did we do it right? YOU decide!

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

All love,

Song: Ingles (Mas o Menos) - Artist: Chuck Inglish - May 2014

Get "Ingles (Mas o Menos) by Chuck Inglish @ http://amzn.com/B00J44FERW
It's also on iTunes.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: We're always buying new music for our Hip Hop dance classes. Like most folks deez days, we pick and choose digital singles to buy from among whatever albums are new online. However, once in a while, we love every single track on an album and we buy the whole thing.

That's Chuck Inglish and his debut album "Convertibles".

"Wait ... do you mean Chuck Inglish from 'The Cool Kids'?" Exactly. He dropped a solo album last month and it is FANTASTIC from beat one to beat done. Buy it now @ http://www.amazon.com/Convertibles-Chuck-Inglish/dp/B00J44FERW (it's also available on iTunes) "Why are you so bossy?" #1, because we are. #2, because you're gonna love it and you can thank us later.

And though, as we said, we loved every track and had our favorites ("Legs", "Keith Sweat", "Swervin'"), this song had all the parts that make FUNKMODE people go crazy. We knew our students would love it (and they did) and we had a ton of fun with the dance.

Thanks to Chuck for dropping a great album and giving us a reason to dance!

Song: Boom Count - Artist: FUNKMODE - June 2014

Get "Boom Count" by FUNKMODE @ STORE

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: You know that dude in the front of the videos? That's Mighty of FUNKMODE. "Duh!", you say. Okay, fine. Well, what you may not know is that when he gets really excited while telling a story or teaching he says "BOOM" a lot. In fact, it's become such a thing that when he starts getting fired up, the FUNKMODE girls often joke, "Uh oh, the boom count is up to like 9 already, this must be serious!" Or, sometimes they just start a count without telling him and then say later how many "BOOM"s he got up to.

One day in class, they were laughing at him again and then suggested that he actually write a song called "Boom Count". It was supposed to be a joke. But the more they talked about it the more it sounded like a good idea. Mighty flipped the meaning around and made it about fighting to get your shot to step up and shine, but it still makes everyone that knows him laugh. And the story has a happy ending as "Boom Count" turned out to be one of the fan favorite songs on the album.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: Have you heard this song yet? All it takes is to hear a few bars before you know we finally got someone new and worth checking out on the scene. LE1F is a emerging rapper from NYC, with a unique vocal sound and production style. He just released his debut EP called "Hey". This song has been featured in a really popular video from Diesel called "A-Z of Dance". If you haven't seen it before, make it the first thing you do after watching this video.

And although his music stands out as unique all on its own, it considering Hip Hop's often homophobic history, it bears mentioning that LE1F is one of the first openly gay rappers. Props to him for not just making waves socially but having something worthwhile to bring to the table musically. A big "ALL LOVE" to LE1F from his new fans at FUNKMODE.
