France has dancin’ fever: The Tecktonik

Apparently for a few years now all the electro kids in Paris have been doing this dance called the Tecktonik to all that electro-house on Ed Banger. Now I don’t know how much of these dance moves are really new… it looks a lot like poppin and locking and old-school rave glow stick dancing to me, but you gotta dig this whole French hip kid spin on going apeshit on the dancefloor. There seems to be a lot of wrapping your arms around your head.

Check out these guys: (note that the fellow in front is sporting both a fanny pack and a mullet)

Wikipedia says:

Tecktonik (also known as “tck“,”electro dance” “vertigo“, “Milky Way“) is a form of dance based on a blend of techno styles (late 80s vogue, 90s  waving and old school breakdancing), started in 2007 in Paris at the outrageous club Metropolis by Hussein Ezzo and some other dancers.[1] The music Tecktonik is usually danced to is electro house. Tecktonic has not yet succeeded in creating its own musicgenre, even though multiple attempts have been made.

About a minute into this video all these French girls have these psuedo b-girl Tecktonik battles:


This kid here will show you a thing or two. I guarantee you that this badass has made out with every girl in his seventh grade class: (you can tell he isn’t effing around by his wristband 35 seconds in)

All in all, I give this whole Tecktonic dance craze two gyrating and flailing thumbs up. How sweet would it be to go to a house party where everybody is Tecktonic dancing all over the place, bumping into things and knocking lamps off of end tables?

Sam’s birthday – I think that’s mud pie:

At one point in the night dudes were hopping on a laptop and dj-ing straight from YouTube videos. The guy that plays Mufasa in the Broadway production of The Lion King was busting moves to Beyonce like nothing I’ve ever seen.

Even this guy showed up!

I also learned that similar to cheesteaks tasting better in Philadelphia, getting down to Biggie in Brooklyn can’t be beat.

Yes Brooklyn. Yes.
