Old Timey Dance Routines Sync Up to EDM

As if we needed any more proof as to the collectivity of mankind. These videos are either witchcraft or an optical illusion.

It’s important to note that you can’t do this with every video, but that a lot of them do appear to flow synonymously. My theory is that our minds automatically assigns the two together because the audio is playing at the exact same time as the video moves. You could mix them live by transitioning videos that have the songs on them with a big HD screen and sound system.

All of these songs are bootleg remixes or free downloads so it’s okay to honor them with a VJ video. Plus the video footage has aged to a point where it is considered free game for Creative Commons use.

Adele “Rolling In the Deep” (DJ Sliink remix) (2012) X Eleanor Powell & Fred Astaire “Begin the Beguine” Tap Dancing (1940)

My style is deep.

Sat Savitri (1935) X Broke One “Go Go Go” (Treasure Fingers remix) (2011)

This is a dance routine from one of the early works from the golden age of Indian cinema. Is it just me or does the bored rich couple in the audience look like Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disek in a past life?

Titania, Queen of the Fairies of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935) X Limewax “666 Untitled vs. Cracking Core” (Munchi’s 777 VIP) (2013)

This is a scene from the 1935 film version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Some might say I have done a horrible thing to a classic ballet, but it seemed scary as hell to me in the first place. Especially with all the little blonde children of the corn running around — in 1930’s Europe no less.

The actress playing Titania, Queen of the Fairies is Anita Louise.
