RED BULL BC ONE CYPHER | THE BOWERY BALLROOM
It was a monumental occasion, the 40th Anniversary of Rock Steady, the legendary breakdancing crew and Red Bull's BC One New York Cypher. The ceremonious occasion at The Bowery Ballroom was reigned over by none other than DJ Kaz with a special guest performance by Fat Joe.

The winner of the Cypher, "Pop" from Queens, goes on to Amsterdam to compete in the Last Chance Cypher, for a shot at the BC One World Finals. Check out the exciting final round with all the back-bending, head-standing moves Gravity will allow, followed by the crowning moment when breakdancing icon Crazy Legs, announces the winner!

ELLE DEE | Q&A
Elle Dee, a long time music lover and Kagency DJ, reflects on her music career beginnings and muses on her career highlights and next steps. Catch up with her weekly at her new Monday night residency at Et Al. in the Lower East Side. Learn more about Elle below and reach out for your next corporate event!
What is your background and what inspired you to become a DJ?
My love of music began when I was 12 years old and I started playing drums. I have been in a few bands since then, but I have always been a DJ at heart. I remember being 15 years old playing records at my friends' parties - It has always been something I was in to.

What's your go-to song guaranteed to get a crowd on the dance floor?
 I don't believe in a "go-to" song. Every event is about telling a story and taking people on a journey with you. Each event is different and I try to tell a new tale each time. 

Where is the most unusual place you've performed? 
Madison Square Garden was an unexpected one!

What three words would you use to describe your music style?
Music to Dance

Aside from creating music, what are your other passions? 
Books and movies are other interests, but music is really it for me. It takes 97 percent of my time and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

What is next for your career?
Like Bowie said... "I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring."
