What is Tecktonik Dancing?
Tecktonik is a dance based on a mix of hip hop and techno styles.Tecktonik style also borrows heavily from cyberpunk. It originated in Paris and has grown in popularity through word-of-mouth and video sharing sites such as Dailymotion and YouTube. Hardstyle is the music style associated with Tecktonik.
The term Tecktonik is also a registered trademark. This is the first time that the name of a dance has been protected in this way, and has created copyright issues for dance events or other uses of the name.The name refers to the clash between music styles similar to the collision of tectonic plates. However, Tecktonik is not a style of music . Dancers tend to have futuristic, sometimes even gothic hair cuts and sometimes wear make-up designs such as a star around one eye. They often wear tight fitting jeans that seem to be the opposite of what would be needed to dance this dance.
Notable Tecktonik musicians include DJ Dess, RV. B, Deepack, Max B. Grant, Miss Hiroko and lately David Guetta, Dirty South and Yelle.
One of the first Tecktonik videos posted on YouTube featured Jey-Jey. Other notable Tecktonik dancers include Lecktra, Lili azian, Fredoo, Vavan, Spoke, Boobiz, Micktazz, the members of SMDB, Maestro, Junky, Sofy, Treaxy, and many others
1. Jey-Jey Wantek, Danse electro
Check out the shoes and the moves. A little more electro than Tecktonik but still very similar. Don't try this at home he is a trained professional.
2. Fatale Bazooka featuring Yelle
While not exactly Tecktonik exclusively, there is a Tecktonik segment in the middle. In French it is the equivalent of "Talk to the Hand". What do you think FBI stands for? Answer in the comments section.
3. Jey-Jey Ré-MY
This video begins with more popping and the robot but then moves into Tecktonik. I think it is funny that he is dancing in front of his garage, in his backyard, obviously in some suburb somewhere.
