Why Are These Kids At A Rave?
The 1990s were a simpler time - at least in the realm of kid birthday parties. You went out for laser tag or group-watched a movie. You had slumber parties or rented the 'party room' at your local roller rink. However, sometime between then and now, Skrillex happened - which brings us to the latest trend in children's birthday parties - KIDDIE RAVES. Introducing CirKiz - it's like that neon EDM-packed post-apocalypse you used to go to in college. But with safer goodie bags. You got your wildin' out, glowstick-wielding white bros. Guy with a cool haircut working the 1's and 2's. The person who's been going hard on fruit punch all night. And the one in the corner, currently regretting the fruit punch. CirKiz was created by some NYC-based, EDM-loving parents - Jesse Sprague and Jenny Song - who wanted to create a special place "where families can listen and dance to DJs, see live performances, and experience a nightclub environment in a safe, controlled daytime setting." Available in both New York and London, parents can choose one of several popular warehouse venues and trendy nightclubs for their CirKiz-sponsored event. One such venue, I was surprised to learn, is Cielo, a New York spot known for hosting some pretty 'high-brow' house and trance DJs. In fact, that's exactly where Jesse and Jenny first came up with their Cirkiz idea: "We had [our son's] 1st birthday party at Cielo. We invited friends with kids and friends without. It was so much fun for everyone we decided to make it an annual event but in different clubs. The message we got from all our friends was clear and consistent: 'You should do this professionally and turn it into a business... I'd pay to go.' So after years of just doing it for fun, we finally got our act together and did exactly that." Currently, CirKiz is hosting a 'winter series' of raves at NYC's Space Ibiza on Sundays, where ticket prices range from $15 - 20 per person. You can check out more details at their official website or you can be like me and just stare at these pictures, feeling equal parts confused and disturbed. With that being said: What do you guys think? Is combining kids and rave culture a good idea or bad idea? Let me know in the comments below. (Also shout-out to the LED robot in this picture up here. For a part-time job, that's - admittedly - rad as hell.)
'' Take The Lead '' Déjate Llevar - Película completa en Español - tiene mucha pasión en sus Bailes
Take the Lead (Déjate llevar en España y Ritmo y seducción en Latinoamérica ) es una película estadounidense de 2006, del género drama, musical, dirigida por Liz Friedlander, protagonizada por Antonio Banderas, Rob Brown, Yaya Da Costa, Alfre Woodard y Jenna Dewan en los papeles principales. Pierre Dulaine (Antonio Banderas) es un maestro de baile que un día mientras regresaba del trabajo observa como un chico golpea un auto, pero al momento de ir a hablar con él, éste escapa y deja tirada una tarjeta del propietario del auto (la directora de una preparatoria), y decide ir a verla. Cuando se reúne con ella, Pierre se percata que la postura de la misma denota desinterés por la realidad en la que se ven inmersos los alumnos de la preparatoria. La directora distingue un grupo de adolescentes como los chicos "problemáticos" y le comenta a Pierre sobre ellos con desaliento y resignación. Pierre se propone a conocer mejor la realidad de estos adolescentes y decide ayudarlos poniendo en juego su pasión por el baile como una propuesta para la superación de la marginación y el abatimiento que atraviesan. El desarrollo de la historia continúa con el proceso de aprendizaje en el que los alumnos de la preparatoria a través del baile pueden conseguir superar situaciones de discriminación, pobreza, extrema violencia y depresión, en paralelo con los conflictos propios de la adolescencia como etapa de vida. El grupo de jóvenes finalmente puede sobreponerse a las dificultades iniciales y reconstruir su rol en la sociedad al encontrarse con sus límites y capacidades, gracias a la perseverancia y determinación de Pierre, que los contagia con ganas de vivir y luchar por lo que uno sueña. Basada en la vida real de Pierre Dulaine , bailarín y profesor de baile, inventor del método Dulaine. Protagonistas: Antonio Banderas Rob Brown Yaya DaCosta Alfre Woodard Dante Basco Jenna Dewan Marcus T. Paulk Lauren Collins Katya Virshilas
BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
