Breaking's New Ground
Frank Owen, The Village Voice, 26 May 1998
A CIRCLE CLEARS in the middle of the gloomy basement at Konkrete Jungle and into the arena glides 20-year-old Face, top rocking to the mechanical beat of drum-and-bass. Falling to the ground and using his left arm as a pivot, he spins his body 360 degrees, and kicks his legs out in a "six step" — the basic move all breakers learn. From this simple foundation, Face builds a dazzling routine — half art, half sport — that encompasses back flips, hand stands, and body spins. He becomes a blur of limbs — like a Moroccan whirling dervish turned on his head.
