The Northwest Sweet 16 – 2016

Well, after much confusion on dates and venues, we have locked it down. This will be our 9th Northwest Sweet 16, and what a year it’s shaping up to be. We have new and old coming back into the bracket to prove their steez, plus out of state competitors to spice things up. New this year, was a prelim in the Southeast, put on by Frantic Chef from Dynamic Rockers. The winner of that competition was Stedlove from Mighty Zulu Kings. He will be the first out of region b-boy to compete in the NW Sweet 16 and we are all very excited to see how our b-boys stack up.

This year will also feature a 3v3 b-boy competition for $600 cash and prizes. Our venue and event information is all available on our event page HERE. Check it out, and be sure to buy presale tickets when they become available because this year will sell out.

The Northwest Sweet 16/Back to the Culture 2015 Recap

So, the weekend is over, and boy what a weekend. We were very disappointed in the turnout for the event. This was probably our lowest turnout in the 8 years we’ve thrown this jam, but we’ve never tried to go head up against the Seattle summer, so shame on us. With that said, it was the best jam we’ve done as far as talent goes. A truly international jam with b-boys from Sweden, Italy, Columbia, Russia, California, and Japan. Awesome to see the cultures combine.

I’m sure you’d like to know the results, they are as follows:

Northwest Sweet 16 2015 Champ: Jbugz, Soul Felons, Vancouver BC
Runner up: Buckshot, Unleashed, Seattle WA

Crew Competition Champions: Massive Monkees, Seattle WA
Crew Competition Runner Up: Breakadelics, Sweden

All Style Crew Champions: Fly Girls, Canada
All Style Crew Runner Up: Hoshito International, Japan/Italy/Sacramento

Highlights for us included Jbugz vs Buckshot in the finals, super sick to see a clash of the new school and old school NW b-boys. Massive Monkess battling Sweden was one of the best battles I’ve seen period. Fly Girls were incredibly prepared. Their routines would have smashed on any crew that we’ve had in the past.

Footage to come soon, we will populate as soon as we can:
