Chinese Man: Step Back

Directors Fred & Annabelle created of the most slickest music videos we’ve seen in a while. Thousands of nondescript characters face off at a city intersection, while DJ Chinese Man keeps the beat going from the tallest amp stack we’ve ever seen. From the album Shikantaza.

Happy Cat Disco: No Jumping Around

Happy Cat Disco: No Jumping Around

Mashup maker Happy Cat Disco brilliantly combined House of Pain’s Jump Around with Meghan Trainor’s No Excuses, resulting in a track that will have you dancing right there in your office chair. The trippy imagery was plucked from the Disney classic Dumbo.

Whether or not you’re an Apple fan, you’ve got to appreciate the amazing creativity in director Spike Jonze’s “Welcome Home” promo spot for the tech giant’s new HomePod speaker. We’re dying to see a BTS of how they pulled off all the stretchy practical effects.

LED Pixel Costume Light Show

LED Pixel Costume Light Show

A demonstration of four incredible LED-illuminated costumes created by high tech scenery and costume makers Stigma for EKRAN. While there’s more standing around and posing than dancing here, the costumes are the real star of the show.

Dancing with a Robot

Dancing with a Robot

Artist, acrobat, and dancer Yoann Bourgeois choreographed this incredible performance art piece at the Panthéon in Paris, France. In La Mécanique de L’Histoire dancers gracefully fall one by one onto a trampoline and then back onto a rotating staircase.

(PG-13: Language) “And all the hits are saying the same thing. There’s only tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, and life is finite. But sh*t, it feels like forever.” Funny, catchy, and tired of all of this. LCD Soundsystem picks up right where it left off.

Finger Kaleidoscope

Finger Kaleidoscope

When someone sends us a dance video, the moves are performed with legs and arms. Not so in this clip from StatusSilver, choreographed by XTRAP, which features a synchronized performance by three sets of hands. It’s like a Busby Berkeley musical, but for fingers.

Illusion of Choice 2

Illusion of Choice 2

(PG-13: Lyrics) Marquese Scott, BluPrint, iGlide, and AndreAndroiidRucker follow up their incredible dance video from 2012 with another sick set of robotic and slow-motion maneuvers. We want to see these guys in a dance-off with World Order.

Bonetics

Bonetics

It’s ironic that the performer in this video goes by the moniker “Bonetics,” given the fact that it appears he is completely boneless. Watch as he performs insane and seemingly impossible moves which combine breakdancing with contortion. (Thanks Dan!)

Genèse

Genèse

Performance artists U-Machine created this work in which a pole dancer interacts with the geometric images projected on the screen behind her. The result is a live performance that could pass as the opening credit sequence for the next James Bond movie (if it had guns.)

Breakbot: My Toy

Breakbot: My Toy
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

(PG-13) The video for Breakbot’s disco-infused track mixes ’70s sci-fi elements to create a world in which men are replaced with creepy robots who do the bidding of their female masters. It’s like Westworld meets Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.

Gravity

Gravity

The always incredible Poppin John teamed up with dancer Solto to turn in this mindbending (and bodybending) street performance set to Revolvr & Genisis and Splitbreed’s track Unstoppable. The gimmick at the end is worth the price of admission.

EROSION

EROSION

A wonderfully shot short film by Brandon Bloch and Tim Sessler which uses the movements of a group of talented young dancers to reflect the gradual loss of New York City’s local culture and character as the city has gentrified. Read more on the Brooklyn Aerials blog.

Unsquare Dance

Unsquare Dance

Musicians will tell you that a 7/4 time signature is one of the trickiest rhythms to follow. In Stewart MacLennan’s short film, performers show off their ability to keep in sync with this unusual beat. Inspired by Dave Brubeck’s eponymous track.

Waltz on the Wall

Waltz on the Wall

Using nothing more than rappelling gear and their talents, dancers Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber pulled off this epic vertical dance on the side of Oakland’s City Hall for the Art + Soul Festival.

Super Mario Super Dance

Super Mario Super Dance

We dare you not to crack at least a little smile as Nathan Barnatt cranks out some more of his silly dance moves while dressed as everyone’s favorite pixelated plumber. Stick around long enough and he might even get his Princess.

The Future is Now

The Future is Now

A performance art piece done with a pair of ridiculously expensive programmable LED light sticks loaded with a variety of mesmerizing persistance of vision images. We love how he snuck Nyan cat in there. More here.
