Immunity Dance Remix for Instagram

I wanna be next you.
“Black and Gold” by Sam Sparro

The Remix series features Rumer and Val’s DWTS routines set to different songs that hopefully breathe new life into them. The edits are simple—just some rearranging, subtle coloring, and occasional effects when appropriate—with the aim of still showcasing their dancing. One remix every weekday from 7/13 to 7/31, posted in the order they were performed.

the year of hexterah’s house of hotties: July 3rd
Sam Sparro (musician)

Everything about Sam Sparro is absolutely wonderful. His music is amazing, his voice is magic and look at that bone structure okay. You’ve most likely heard Black and Gold (or a cover of it) but that isn’t his only gorgeous song. They all are that level of yes please. His sense of humor is the best kind and holy crap I really can’t say enough about him. He is one of my favorite musicians and there are no songs of his I ever skip while listening to his albums. HE IS THAT MAGIC.

The Shallow End // Happiness // Hands Up // Sick // Infinite // We Could Fly

Hands up who has been waiting for Sam Sparro to release music for almost 7 years? It seems like its been an age since Sam Sparro dropped Black And Gold and now he’s returned with Hands Up where he’s gone with a really funky soul sound which reminds me a bit of Mark Ronson’s latest album. I am seriously impressed with this track, its perfect to groove to and is just a sweet funk soul track. Props to Sam Sparro as he has come out and surprised me in a really brilliant way - Jakk
