I've found a great definition of mindset
And it's in french 
So I'm translating it here
(sorry for the mistakes)
"We call "mindset" a set of distinctive features allowing the athlete to be inside. It includes selfawareness with strong and weak points, focus, motivation, as well as emotionnal control. All the factors make it possible for the athlete to create a sort of barrier between him and the outside, allowing him to filter information and to adjust to his environment. Without this, it's impossible for him to give the best of himself during a competition."
(My goal of the moment is not competition but audition)
(If you read french I recommend U to read the full article: short, simple and usefull)

A Flexing tribute to Fela Kuti

From Nowness:

"A Fela Kuti Flex
Transplanting the Nigerian funk master to the streets of Brooklyn

He may have died 18 years ago but the music of Fela Kuti resonates throughout the years. The flamboyant Nigerian was the inventor of afrobeat, and its hypnotic fusion of jazz, funk and African rhythms has a freshness and intensity that retains its power to inspire. The five bone-popping dancers feeling Fela beats in this clip are not Nigerians but New Yorkers, and answer to the names of Flizzo, Opt, Jay Donn, Sedo and Danny. Their style of street dance—flexing—originated in the east Brooklyn, and found fame in the 2013 documentary, Flex Is Kings.

“We want to introduce audiences to older sounds from Africa, and the positive, contemporary story of the continent”

The idea to match these flex-men with the classic Fela track “Zombie” came from Okayafrica, the sister platform to the Okayplayer channel, launched by The Roots drummer, producer and record archivist, Questlove, who started the original Okayplayer site 16 years ago in his bedroom, as a way to connect with fans of The Roots. Along the way, it became a home for other such artists as Erykah Badu, Common and D’Angelo, and today exists to provide a platform for music with African roots, from Stones Throw mixtapes to South African electro. 

“We saw Flizzo and Jay Donn in Flex Is Kings and were inspired when we witnessed their live performances,” says Okayafrica producer Allison Swank of the energetic short, directed by Dominick Sheldon and produced by Root Studio. “With this film, we wanted to introduce new audiences to older sounds from Africa. It aims to show the positive, contemporary story of the continent.”

Tom Horan is Culture Editor-at-Large at NOWNESS.

Head to Okayafrica for an extended performance of Fela Flex."

It's official you'all
I'm launching the Underground stylzzZ category

Barely known but powerful
Don't want to be known 
Just wanna exist
I mean, really need to exist
For some people, there's only one way to God
Deprive them of it
And they'll serve Devil

Such great sources of inspirations
Sometimes I'll take time to dig more profoundly into a specific style
Other, I'll simply post videos I looove

January dance

Miley Cyrus knows how to dance
 in the middle of a cold January day
**Smoking Hot**

Music I'll never get bored of

Music you can't stop dancing to
I mean, music you'll never get bored dancing to
Even if you have to play it 100 times a day
Does it exist?

A specific Skyfall remix made by DJ Chronic for Les Twins
