The Northwest Sweet 16 2015 is almost upon us. June 27th and 28th, please be sure to add that to your schedule. Can’t believe it’s the 8th year. The last couple years have been incredibly awesome. 700+ people, b-boys from all over, cyphers, hype battles, and a vibe that’s full of love. Just the way a dope underground jam should be. This year will feature our first non Northwest b-boy, Neato, who won the Seattle open prelim, as well as returning champions. Please share with your friends!

The awesome people at the Chinatown International District invited us to create a battle for their Night Market. We’ve worked with them in the past and have had nothing but good experiences, so we gladly accepted. The concept is simple; invite 8 deserving crews from the Northwest, and pit them against each other for cash and prizes. 2013 will be our first year with this concept, and we hope to make it an ongoing event.
The event is free, please come and enjoy the dancing, and stay for the food.

We would like to thank everyone who showed up for Breaking the Silence 2013. The battle was AWESOME with hype battles, great energy, and our first ever Power King Exhibition. Big ups to Record Junkies for taking the championship and Road Trip Massacre for taking second place. Marks Iller from Filthee Feet with the King of the Hill Championship, Gully from Massive Monkees for taking 2nd place. Last but not least Akhang from Def Con 5 for becoming our first ever Power King Champion.
Other notables from the night included Break Tough and Wizards and DRS showing incredibly good form, Fishy in the Power King Exhibition showing everyone some insane blow ups, and Buckshot and Fredo in the King of the Hill battle with truly unique styles.
