Thanks to everyone who came to support the #northwestsweet16 yesterday. It was great to see that underground hip-hop is still viable in Seattle, even with all the changes we’ve seen over the last couple years.
Last night was super fun. First off congrats to Krubel Bekele “Buckshot” from Unleashed for taking the Sweet 16 bracket. Was great to see him finally take the championship. Not only does he get the Sweet 16 title, but Geoff Reyes will be flying him out to Florida for the UBL championship in July. Big ups to Luis Tfs Bowzee for taking second place in the 2v2 AND the Sweet 16 bracket. I’m sure all of us were wondering how he would have done had he only entered one bracket. For the 2v2, we had Byron Jay Donaldson and Dann Vital taking the W as Egyptian Cotton. For our all style champs, we extended two invites to two champions, Crownz and Squidgit (spelling?). Other notable competitors were Keltin Martin from Calgary, Mo Ramirez from Portland, Jermine Bulaong with the flavor, Sevrin Emnacen-Boyd, Samson, and a bunch more. Josh Laquian and Thomas Dominique Chung are working hard on the footage as we speak, they will have footage posted on the B-boy Network Channel asap: https://www.youtube.com/user/BboyNetwork.
Many thanks to the production team, couldn’t have done it without them. Judges: Eric Mpwo, Daniel King Reds Rojas, Anthony Kornnut Okino, Dufon Smith Orb, Victor Tran, Natasha Gorrie, Florentino Francisco, Chris Kaku Brothers. Djs/sound: Sean Lee, Khoi Quan, Tracey Wong, Drop B Angers. Photo/Video: Josh Laquian,Thomas Dominique Chung, David Cuerpo Jr. MC: Joe Ricci. Door: Kimi/Mary Lee.
It’s that time of year again! This year’s Northwest Sweet 16 will once again feature the best that the NW has to offer. With new and returning competitors, a 2v2 b-boy crew battle, and a 1v1 all styles battle, get ready for some amazing dancing!
Tickets will be $15 at the door, no pre-sale this year.
Thanks again to everyone who made this year’s Sweet 16 happen. As always, it was a crazy night with upsets, bracket busters, great dancing, funny moments, and incredible feats of athleticism. Our highlights included watching many new faces blow it up in the Sweet 16. SoFarin, Curt, Kulani, Motorman, and a bunch of other rookies made the event one for the books. Other highlights included Juse Boogie’s epic headslide in the mini comp, Boxcutta’s super crew taking the W in the b-boy crew competition, and Curt putting the hurt on everyone in the Sweet 16 bracket. Winners below, footage coming soon!
Brackets are up, and boy do they look exciting. Also, be sure to check the schedule below, if you’re entering the all style competition, be ready to go at 1pm (and don’t forget the workshops at 11am). If you’re a breaker, prelims start at 3pm on the dot. If you are a spectator, doors open at 6pm for the general public, and the finals start at 7pm. After party at Baltic Room.
We are happy to announce the continuation of the Northwest Sweet 16 into the 11th year. This year will mark a change in the structure of the competition. In order to make the process more decentralized, more than half of the competitors will be sourced from prelims. We believe this will make the choices less political, as our board members will have less choice on who competes in the final. Prelims will take place in Vancouver, Seattle, Eastern Washington, Portland, and Alaska. With the exception of Alaska, each prelim will have an invited 8 bracket, in which the winner will represent at the finals, and an open 1v1 bracket for anyone to enter, in which the winner will represent at the finals. Event page HERE.
We will once again be hosted the All Style Sweet 16 at the Chinatown/ID Night Market this year. It will be our third year hosting at this marvelous event and needless to say, we have an amazing lineup!!! Check out our event page HERE to see the lineup and details for the show.
It was an honor to see some of the most talented b-boys in the world get down against each other. The final battle for the Sweet 16 Championship was between Milhouse from Drifters Crew, Korea and Yosh from Gun Smoke Breakers, Japan.
