ABOUT EARTHGANG

Hailing from Atlanta, GA EarthGang is comprised of Johnny Venus and WowGr8– solidifying a friendship watching their highschool burn down and a love for music that doesn’t follow the rules. Marrying lean, sharp-eyed lyricism with Southern-fried soul, every song arrives fully formed, hitting hard and landing jokes while also delving deep into political issues, especially topics of race and equality. They spent their college days recording in dorm rooms and collaborating with local producers when they were discovered – and then signed – by J Cole to his Interscope imprint; Dreamville. Having released mixtapes and one off singles – the guys hit a stride with their 3-EP project which was inspired by The Wizard of Oz. EPs Rags (Scarecrow), Robots (Tinman) and Royalty (the lion) precedes EarthGang’s debut album Mirrorland out this year. Bursting with energy and having garnered a rabid live following, the ATLiens have been featured by the likes of Pitchfork, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, Hot New Hip Hop, Consequence of Sound, Uproxx, Pigeons & Planes and more. Known for their enigmatic live energy, Johnny and WowGr8 are a favorite with artists across genres inviting the pair to tour alongside including J Cole, Billie Eilish, Smino and more. Stretching beyond the “indie hip-hop” label they’ve been brandished with, EarthGang are ready to reach a wider audience with their sharp-slick lyrics and an avid interest in never settling or resting on their laurels.

Break Dancers Set World Record

Break It ’til You Make It…Red Bull BC One is Spinning Into The Records Book

Over 70 breaking aficionados have set a world record for the most simultaneous windmill moves completed in 30 seconds.

The windmill is a classic Hip Hop dance move in which the legs are lifted high in the air and twisted in a windmill pattern, while the torso and head rest against the floor. The world record for the most windmills – the most recognizable move in breaking – was completed simultaneously by the largest group of dancers aged between 15 and 50 years old.

The world record was set at Kinderdijk, a village in the Netherlands’ South Holland province, known for its iconic 18th-century windmills and a monument to the history of humankind that was officially included as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Over the past few years, the Hip Hop scene – and the culture that surrounds it – has grown dramatically, with rappers like Poke and Brainpower filling the country with old school beats and fuelling a society of talented breakers, battling in competitions around the Netherlands and around the World.

Leading the breakers is Italy’s Mauro Peruzzi – aka Cico, the ‘Prince of Power’. Known for his dynamic, gymnastic, power moves, Cico is one of the most impressive talents in the B-Boy Dance form today and this is not his first World Record. Especially heralded for his energetic airflare combination moves and incredible ‘1990s’, where he spins and speed in a one-armed handstand, holding the World Record with a mind-boggling 27 revolutions.

The World Record Breaking event marks the growing breaking scene in the Netherlands, with Amsterdam hosting this year’s Red Bull BC One World Finals on November 4th.
