KaW feat Sam-I-Am – Move It Groove It

Move It Groove It - KaW feat. Sam I Am
This was announced at SCI Recordings recently, but I figured I would also post it here for users of this site.


SCI Recordings is pleased to announce a new KaW single “Move It Groove It” featuring the one and only Sam I Am on vocals. Fans of Pump It Up NX will remember Sam I Am from the popular song Sam I Am & Haley. This new collaboration is featured in the brand new Encore content pack for Pump It Up Pro and is available for listening & download now in the SCI Recordings Store.

Sam and I Hope you enjoy the new track!

What’s wrong with this picture? I was almost killed by the London traffic. Be sure to look LEFT when crossing the road in the UK 🙂

Machine Dance Communities?

After posting a comment on a forum, I thought I might bring up a much larger issue among the machine dance community.

I encourage everyone, whether you are active in 4 panel, 5 panel, Roxor, Konami or Andamiro dance game titles: Please look this over and consider giving your thoughts or opinions? Try do so without any bias towards what you do appreciate

“Communities” seem to be very different from the machine dance communities 5-8 years ago. We now live in a time where people feel the need to over analyze materials and/or recreate with possible hurtful intentions. Maybe ego related? Why now when this wasn’t as much the case then?
For example – When something new is known or released (youtube) you immediately are presented with opinions whether you want them or not. While this isn’t wrong, it seems to start off negative quickly. Much more then it use to in the past years.

While this is common today, it’s just hard to see these differences effect everyone today. The communities seemed to be different in good ways many years ago. What creates this need for such verbal emotion today?

Has it become harder for somebody to accept something for what it is rather then how they think it should be? Does a person feel the need to makes others agree with their opinions more now than previously? Maybe the internet has created this “safe-bubble” for people to be more vocal then before?

Why are people often different in person from the opinions they post about on forums?

As the future progresses for”Machine Dance” videogame titles, everyones involvement in their community key and very important. Please take just a moment to comment on your memories and/or involvement that brought you to enjoy these games and this concept for what they are. As a community, let us all come together share the potential future together!

What do you want to see change? What did you like that attracted you originally? Where do you hope that these games can take us all in the future?
