Original Soul Train Dancers Speak On What It Took To Dance For Don Cornelius & ‘Soul Train’ Back In The Day (Video)

We taught America to dance. We taught the WORLD to dance!

Ahhh, so Doc C. brought the Soul Train line to TV straight out of Chi-Town. Learn about that and more about this quintessential part of our Culture in this mini-doc.

From the days of Motown to the birth of Hip-Hop, the “Soul Train” dancers look back at their time on the show and reflect on how their experiences transformed Black culture.

Dance: This Is ‘Not Your Average Train Ride’ (Video)

Don’t have much backstory on who these guys are or why the train is the perfect dance venue. Don’t know that we need it to enjoy it. It is what it is… and it is DOPE!

Eye Candy: Nneka Irobunda’s “Burna Boy” Dance Is Hot Like Fire! (Video)

Cute AND sexy AND fine AND hot AND talented. Nneka put this out before Christmas, but I kept it to myself until now. I’m selfish, a little bit, with such awesome presents (presence) like this. But I am ready to share now.

Rhythm Roulette With Joji (Video)

Hmmm… Some weird elements to start. But when you hear Joji yell, “Game over!” you somehow know it’s all gonna turn out alright… for the most part.

“This sh*t goes hard, right?” Joji stepped into NYC’s Good Records with one goal, select three records at random and create a beat on the spot, adding his name to the long list of producers to have taken the #RhythmRoulette challenge. Equipped with The Moody Blues’ ‘Seventh Sojourn’ and two other albums from deep in the crates, the 88Rising artist and producer got really weird using Jimmy Castor Bunch’s “The Last Olé” to create a trumpet-driven beat that is certainly one-of-a-kind. Peep the video above and let us know how he did.

Little Dragon – “Lover Chanting” (EP)

Little Dragon. Straight outta Sweden! It’s a disco-house-R&B mash EP… Not really feeling that as an NWA-type flow… which is good. Nothing like that. But good!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Tuxedo (Video)

A Tuxedo Tiny Desk Concert? Best ticket you didn’t even have to purchase. Check it out!

When Tuxedo arrived at NPR and Mayer Hawthorne spied a small ‘Ho!’ button sitting on Bob Boilen’s desk, he immediately beamed. “We use a big ‘Ho!’ button on tour,” he said. They didn’t bring a drummer, opting for a boombox — yes, a real boombox playing a real cassette tape, kids — and it was nostalgic delight from the start of the cassette’s hiss. The band was tight as ever, while their ace in the hole, Gavin Turek provided dance moves and the sweetest harmonies. Tuxedo set things off with a fan favorite from their first album, along with two [more] before closing it out with a red light special. It’s one thing to go against the grain for the sake of it — and another completely make it good. In this Tiny Desk concert, Tuxedo accomplished both.

Tuxedo – “U Like It”

We’ve posted on Tuxedo (Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne). Heard this song a while back recently. And it popped back in my head. Struggled all weekend trying to remember what it was called and where I heard it.

Once I got my ‘memory back’ I went on a brief Tuxedo binge. So, yeah. Expect the fruits of that this week. Gonna be all good though. Admit it: “U Like It.”

Eye Candy: IAmBounce aka ShirJuanda Woodson Expresses Herself Through Dance (Video)

I’ve got a right to speak my mind.

OW! And as you can see, Bounce’s body movements are NOT mumbling. They are proudly speaking. They are PREACHING (have mercy)! Unapologetically bold and beautiful. Plus, undeniably HOT!

Mm mm mmm, ShirJuanda “Bounce” Woodson. Talk that talk then woman! Everyone, she’s baaaaack…

…with another visual jam, and it is smoking! Also, she is back from dancing & touring the seas on the other side of the world.
