Damien Walters Showreel 2009 – Got skills. Gymnastics, Tumbling, Freerunning, Parkour …if Jackie Chan were from Derby.
This combination of popping and lyrical dance to “Plane” by Jason Mraz is mindblowingly gorgeous; a treat for my eyes, ears and soul. I watch it again and again and it still feels like I’m seeing dance for the first time.

MCP Meghan – Contact staff rockstar, prolific video maker and occasional MoM Guest blogger, has rolled out a LOT of new staff tutorials free online.
And this video… The skills are super high, but somehow it seems like the audio got a bit muddled in the editing. LOVE IT!
Here’s the original Thanks Meg.

Bellatrix is a London based beatboxer who is trained in classical and contemporary music. I’m basically in love with her; she has the most soulful style and the hardest inward snare I’ve heard since Kenny Muhammad.
Beat juggling is a term used by DJ’s who use two identical records, allowing one record to play the breakbeat while setting up the next record, and when one beat finishes the DJ smoothly cuts to the same beat on the other record, thereby extending the song.
In this clip, Qbert showcases a single turntable technique called ‘drumming.’ He steps up to the turntables and actually re-arranges the beat itself; mixing up the snares, kicks and hi-hats by quickly cueing up the record, playing the sound, killing the volume, re-cueing the record, playing the next sound, etc. The amount of dexterity required is absolutely insane; Q-Bert isn’t human and definetly deserves a place here on our blog.
