For all those of you out there in hip-hop land that can actually dance, and not do that shuffle-to-the-right-shuffle-to-the-left thing or my personal favourite; the pointy dance. Although this night is actually for all of you, ’cause hey who doesn’t like watching some breaking? Errr no one b. If you’re in the London, UK area then I highly suggest you get down here. Here’s the reh teh teh for all those interested in entering and/or going. The DJ and MC line-up is ridiculous!
The search is on for the next big B-Boy / B-Girl acts for a battle competition at the launch of the new Elementz club night which takes place at Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel Road, London on Thursday 26th April. This is a new quarterly event representing the traditional 4 elements of hip hop to full effect.
At the launch party there will be DJ sets from Sarah Love (resident), DJ 279 (Choice FM), DJ Mr Thing (Scratch Pervert / DMC Finalist) and DJ Snips (Livin Proof). There will also be live performances by Caxton Press, Genesis Elijah, Naba Napalm, Ether L Banks, all hosted by Mystro.
A full section of the night is also being given over to live graffiti, open mic, and a b-boy / b-girl battle with a cash prize on offer. This is being hosted by End of the Weak / Speakers Corner DJ Snuff assisted by DJ Johny Garcia.
In addition to the existing line up of dancers, 7 more successful entrants will have the opportunity to take part in the battle competition on the night to be crowned Elementz Champion at the club’s first event.
Entrants should send either an existing or newly filmed video link of them performing in one of 3 ways. Either by uploading it onto the Facebook page www.facebook.com/elementzUK or by sending the link via twitter to @ElementzUK or by simply emailing the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Only one video is accepted per entrant and all video submissions will be highlighted on the Facebook page. An email should also be sent to email@example.com with the entrant’s name & if possible, contact number. In return, an email will then be issued confirming entry into the competition.
The 10 entrants with the most “likes” on their own Youtube or Vimeo video will be shortlisted. For those using an older video, a note will be taken of the number of exisiting likes at the time of submission, so only “votes” registered after submission will be counted. The 7 successful entrants from that shortlist will be decided upon by an independent judging panel.
Entrants must be 18 years or older (UK Only). Entry into the competition is free and all votes will be counted on Thursday 19th April. The winners will be notified via email on Saturday 21st April
