SCRATCH ITALIA Proudly presents Battlestar Massive (A Tribute to James Brown)Our man in LA DJ IFTWthat also appear on
THE DIFFERENCE from ALIEN ARMY crew has something to say:
The idea came about at last year’s Freestyle Sessions World Finals. Battlestar had the idea of doing a big routine. Since Freestyle Sessions
World Finals is a BBoy event and BBoys love to rock to James Brown, the members decided to do a James Brown Tribute.
The Battlestar crew was originally supposed to do a big routine involving everyone. But since they have 9 members living between San Diego,
Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, they broke the routine in two different parts. Manwell and IFTW teamed up in LA; Cwitch, Virusss, Rayted R, and
Tanner teamed up in SD. Turbulence and Phonics were a part of it as well, but they performed some pieces of their DMC winning routines.
Battlestar Massive got together with DJ Cee Brown who happens to be badass at shooting and editing videos.
Then they got in touch with Kap (owner of Kapsoul) and had permission to shoot the video at his store.
On a sunny LA afternoon, the crew got together at Kapsoul in Downtown Los Angeles.
DJ Cee Brown: Video Producer
Manwell: Sound and Video Editing
Rayted R: Sound editing and mastering.
Tribute Routine Produced by the whole Battlestar Massive crew.
