We have a new episode of the podcast up with Mel B and Captain Canada hosting! We’ve got two new FS tournaments to announce and one big event to cover from FanimeCon 2018! Sacramento freestylers Uncle Phil and Funktion join us as well to talk over their Fanime experience as well as their history with dance game freestyle in the Bay Area!
Freestyle Takeover: Fanime was a homecoming, a return to form and the best Fanime experience we have had in years. It was super gratifying to not only see people show up and compete, but to see them come prepared, dance their hearts out to unconventional songs and breathe new life into a game released in 2002. Judging by the top 3 routines (each song from DDR 2nd Mix Club Version, no less!) and the overall quality of performance in both rounds, I think we can safely say the bar has been raised for DDR freestyle in 2018. 🙂
Without further ado, here are your top 3:
@DaKree – Dr. Love
Uncle Phil – Celebrate
Jonas Juice– 5.1.1.
HONORABLE MENTION for the night goes to 001. Though he didn’t qualify for round 2, he blew us all away with an exhibition of the routine he’d prepared:
We’d like to thank everyone who came through to compete and spectate that night – your love of the game is infectious and brought us much joy that night. Major thanks as well to @dammit_jill for taking the time to record video and Emu the Artist for providing prizes from her Concon store. This was one hell of a fun event and we can’t wait to throw another one like it.
