January 10, 2011F-Rock Clothing presents the top ten sets of 2010:
Many thanks to everyone who participated in this list, including bboyworld.com, strifetv, Red Bull BC One, Claws Out, Circle Kingz, and IBE. Intro song by B-boy Fidget. We realize this list is simply our opinion, please refrain from negative comments, constructive comments welcome. The list:
#10 - B-boy Remind had his hands full for one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the year vs Kmel. Not only did he hold his own, Remind brought back his classic style in full force.
#9 - B-boy Flea Rock took home a very impressive win over Flo Mo at Circle Kingz. His set here was arguably one of the best of the night, even more impressive considering it was mainly based off of clowning his opponent.
#8 - B-boy Lil G didn't win BC One, but this set was definitely one of the best of the entire competition. His air chair kiss to power was a great example of the extreme difficulty and control that b-boys are taking the dance to.
#7 - B-boy Lilou went head to head against Alien Ness at IBE. A perfect clash of new school vs old school. The crowd's reaction, out with the old, in with the new.
#6 - B-boy Cloud hasn't skipped a beat. In addition to taking home the grand prize at United Styles with Skill Methodz, he continues to be one step ahead of the game with his unique moves, and smooth style.
#5 - B-boy Casper's set is a prime example of combining new school tricks, with old school style and finesse. In addition to that, how rocking hard never gets old.
#4 - Lil Demon has come a long was since battling J-Styles at Freestyle Session. Not only can he be considered one of the best power heads in the game, but he displays his versatility at Claws Out by throwing in a lil bit of everything.
#3 - B-boy Xisco's style is unrivaled when you combine it with the right music. In this particular set, not only does he rock a difficult beat, but he effortlessly integrates his moves with the music as well.
#2 - B-boy Bebo has innovated many power moves over the years. This set was a reminder of how much control he has, and how insanely cool it looks to tweak your power with slow motion hollow backs.
#1 - B-boy Taisuke's set vs Skill Methods at Fluido jam was one of the most amazing sets we have ever seen. With new moves that we have never seen, there is really only one word for his round, sugoi.
