Bubbling Battle

Bubbling Battle is the style of Bubbling made for kids to dance to, and it's a small world because it's a ritual similar to Chicago Footwork. It's very much a pop-and-lock dance that goes along with weird DMC sounding mixes, a few of which I've posted recently. Pretty different to the drums-only tracks, and a lot goofier. The mess DJ Moortje left behind is now considered the old school form, and it's been known to piss off Dancehall artists who don't like their music at the wrong speed. I've heard that one of the reasons people enjoyed the change in pitch is that its fast energy fit the demands of the northern Dutch country boys who had enough adrenaline (and drugs) to dance like rabid animals for 10+ hours. Your speed binge wouldn't be disturbed by the constant record changing, because that's all your attention span at that point can handle.
