Meet Ben, a 29 year old freestyle dancer from Seattle, WA, whose favorite style of dancing is Waacking!
“Waacking is a style that is inspired by black & white films and tv series such as Batman, King King, Looney Tunes, Star Wars, Bruce Lee." - Tracey Wong

What initially inspired you to make your playlist?

I created this playlist when I started learning Waacking in 2016 from Tracey (Seattle) and Rina Pellerin (Vancouver). It includes all classic and popular songs used in Waacking battles and performances + other music I think is good for Waacking. I add new music to it about once a week.

Describe your playlist. Perfect setting(s) for vibing out to it include:

For dancing! Great for parties, soul train lines, hustle, training, and of course Waacking!
What was the best concert you've ever attended?
Parov Stelar - The Showbox - Seattle. Even though he's a DJ he brought an amazing live band.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
 Cheryl Lynn, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Prince, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Paula Abdul. The 70s and 80s were a great time period for funk, disco, and pop.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time:
Forever Your Girl - Paul Abdul. So many songs hit that perfect spot between 80s Pop and Funk.
Name a song (or songs) you are currently listening to on repeat:
Witching Hour - Rezz
Who's your favorite new artist(s) that you'd encourage other people to check out?
Luxora Major - Up and coming electro dub and global bass DJ based out of Portland. Check out her new song Dysthymia. She played an amazing set that made me dance for 2 hours straight at 3 in the morning at Cascadia.
