Dancing

You can see this in the physicality as well if you watch the video I've just posted for instance.

This is something I've always found interesting. American style dance and choreography is global but the same moves look very different once transplanted to India or England or Korea.

There's an inhibition to Taze's movements that marks him out as English.

That inhibition quote is not just limited to Taze imo. I'd say Americans are generally better at letting go and giving it all in performances. Especially black Americans. UK hiphop & rnb sounds constipated most of the time in comparison

that's funny, i'd tend to put it the other way round.

there's jamaican's at one end being super expressive and then at the other end there's american rap which is very emotionally cool. the uk i'd tend to put closer to the jamaican end of the spectrum; demon, bruza, poky, etc. chiming far more with that flamboyant jamaican sensibility than an american one.

only in the last few years has that switched with young thug et al. doing lots of vocal dada, while the drill lot by and large are very apathetic, but i'd posit that's a stylistic choice, rather than an emotional inhibition
 
Music on Spotify or YouTube. I like the dances and shooting style a lot though, agitated and catatonic

tommy lee sparta (the bloke dancing in the first video) isn’t a drill artist. these are some of his songs:

luka's nemesis, the thread.

has luke tried to pretend he doesn't like dancing?

all we ever do when i'm over his house is dance. he dance's very much in the portly jamaican uncle at a barbecue vein, whereas i opt for the kurdish militiaman who's just liberated a village from isis style.

i'm trying to remember reynolds. he definitely dances. it's sort of a mix between suggs from madness and prodigy's outter space video and a bloke with stiff joints at a pub.

Patty has this idea that he is a spiritual, sensual, dancer-lover in tune with cosmic vibrations and I am an uptight intellectual book botherer unable to feel the groove.

It's a framework he's very attached to.

version does football chant, loads of blokes with their arms round each other bouncing up and down dancing. he's a bit embarrassed to do it, but does so with the corralling of his brother.
