– Long time no post – I know, I know! –

I stumbled across this video the other day and thought it’d be good to share to not only my readers (if I have any >_>) but also for reference for myself, if I ever forget.

The part of interest is the info on freestyle battles. The freestyle battles where it really is “free” and all styles can take part. When performing on stage with my peers I always find it difficult since my style of popping is quite basic. I’m more into subtle movements and grooving – this makes it difficult to shine compared with others styles that are more dynamic and explosive: like locking and bboying etc.

Oh, that and the fact that I can be quite shy sometimes. =T Haha but anyway, good video for sure!

– Updates –

Hey, long time no update! I’ve been pretty busy lately, however I took part in a competition recently. I did better than I did last time – made it through the preliminary rounds – but that’s as far as I got. I think I lost for the same reason as the last time I went to Huddersfield: not enough aggression or “throwdown”. But anyway, here’s a recent video of me just messing around in the ol’ backyard. The track’s called “Ain’t No Thang” by Ronald Jenkees. I really recommend buying his albums. A lot of good tunes and the guy’s passionate about what he does, which is always a good thing.

As you can see I’m trying to put more mime, animation and botting into my sets now (and even thinking about doing some tutting! this guy’s tutting’s gotten me inspired =O). I’ve written out this list of moves I need to work on, and really studying my old videos. Hopefully it’ll help me on my throwdowns, since I’m primarily a getdown kind of guy.

I watched this video the other day – and like you all know – I’m a big fan of AKA Kin, but the other guy Do Kyun is freaking SICK! Check him out:

Not only that, word’s out that Do Kyun has also JUST won R16!! This is the only footage I can find so far. It’s the semi finals: Popkun vs Do Kyun.

Enjoy! ūüėČ

– Favourites from KOD so far –


Seen’s too dope. Forrealz! He looks like he’s not even trying and he’s got a nice groove. Catch 1:03 – 1:09. Sick stuff!


As for Hozin, he’s been getting himself out there recently. And really he’s on fire; catching all those little beats and hitting some creative angles. Dope, dope, dope.

– Dino vs Nelson –

*Spoilers – highlight to read*Personally I felt that Dino was more entertaining and should have won! But I guess you have to be there at that moment to really see for yourself. There’s a video that has been uploaded showing Popin Pete complaining about the lack of fire and raw battling¬†going on. Maybe that’s why…

I’ve yet to watch the rest of the videos, but i’ll be sure to post them here and give some thoughts later on (like when I’ve finished exams :D).

On another note, here’s a clip of an audition I had today. Not really satisfied with it – it all happened short notice, and I was dancing on a MASSIVELY full stomach (but this all probably sounds like excuses, right? haha ¬¨_¬¨) – but hey, it’s ultra recent. I’m the one in the¬†checked¬†shirt. =)
