Everyone loves a good throwback movie on Saturdays. So, this week, we decided to try to start a tradition and present some of our favorite music oriented movies. This week, we are happy to enjoy Breakin‘ with all of you. This seminal movie features some of the top break dancers of the early eighties. Set to a hip soundtrack reminiscent of the early 80s electro, post disco sound, this movie sizzles. Enjoy!

More about Breakin’ the Movie:
Breakin’, released as Breakdance: The Movie in some countries, is a 1984 breakdancing-themed film directed by Joel Silberg. The film setting was inspired by a German documentary entitled Breakin’ and Enterin’ set in the Los Angeles multi-racial hip hop club Radiotron, based out of Macarthur Park in Los Angeles. Many of the artists and dancers, including Ice-T (who makes his movie debut as a club MC) and Boogaloo Shrimp, went straight from Breakin’ and Enterin’ to star in Breakin’. Ice-T has stated he considers the film and his own performance in it to be “wack”. MORE
