A note from Wicked: “In the spring I received a call from good friend Rox Rite, asking if we would be able to dedicate a few days for a project he was doing along with RedBull , So they came to Chicago to film and document our crews story. We took them all over Chicago even to the origins of where Phaze II was born!
We are truly honored to get recognized by and the whole Red Bull organization! A small piece of our history and where we are heading. ”
To help document the culture within the culture, Red Bull BC One All Stars, Lilou and Roxrite, started a multi episode series (Crew Code)that focuses on crews around the world that helped form breakdancing into what we know it today. We spoke with Roxrite about the creation of the series and future plans. You can read our conversation below as well as watch the newest episode of the series, featuring Chicago crew Phaze II.
