While the world is getting caught up in the #MannequinChallenge, Baltimore is busy having a party all to itself. Lucky for the rest of us, TT The Artist is sharing a part of that function with her track “Dig”–in particular, the dance craze started by the dance crew TSU. Seeing others like Kaelynn Harris and Cortland inspired her to do more with the song.
The original track, produced by Snappy Jit, leans more towards EDM but the remix from Thunderbird Juicebox and Mighty Mark is a flurry of bigger bass and colorful synths.
TT is also working on a music video tour for “Dig.” Starting a month ago, she started working with dancers from eight cities to showcase various street style dances derivative from each region. She’s about halfway through the tour. She’s hit Atlanta, LA, Baltimore, and New York. New Jersey, New Orleans, Miami, and her hometown Fort Lauderdale are what’s left. She’s worked with Tommy The Clown and SayQuon Keys so far. You can support her on this tour by purchasing the remix on iTunes and watch what she has so far above.
TT had this to say about the remix to us via email:
“One of the great things about creating dance music is it’s universal appeal. ‘Dig’ is one of those songs that can get anyone out of their seat and dancing. As an independent artist one of my goals is to continue to push creativity and collaboration so I decided to put together a music video tour where I would travel to major cities and create a platform that would highlight various street dance cultures from Baltimore club footwork to Los Angeles krumping. This tour has also enabled me to connect and build with new fans my music on a more personal level than I have ever experienced before!”
