B-Boy Lil Drez wins the Colombia Cypher 2013!

More than 2,000 spectators gathered in Bogota Saturday, August 3rd, to enjoy one of the year’s most important cultural events, the Red Bull BC One Colombia Cypher. William Andres Beltran, aka B-Boy Lil Drez, emerged victorious, having won over the judges with his moves, footwork and clean execution.

"I am very proud of this triumph. Actually, I trained a lot for this title, and thank God I made it,” said Lil Drez. “Now the biggest challenge is this Sunday, when I will face the best B-Boys of Latin America, but I have prepared consciously for the battles." 

El Palacio de los Deportes opened its doors to thousands of spectators and breaking fans at 6PM, so they could enjoy the best battles in this scene. The battles passed by in an environment of applause, adrenaline and good vibes. It was a night dedicated to the body movement and emotion of acrobatics that characterize breaking, which is one of the four elements of Hip Hop. The dance has roots in Latin-American and African-American communities in New York City from the late 1970s.

DJ Ratrace set the tone on the decks through Hip Hop mixed with urban and Latin rhythms, proposing a beat in each of the battles and encouraging semifinalist Mighty Kevin (Kevin Steve Barrera) to experience his ability on the track. However, the final battle was decided when the host P Flavor announced the final winner of the last battle as Lil Drez, after he defeated B-Boy Mighty Kevin.

The international jury was led by the legendary Red Bull BC One All Star Pelézinho (Brazil), with Luigi (USA) and Flipside King’s Lego (Nicaragua) by his side.

“The level in Colombia is growing a lot and people love to dance. I am very happy to be here in Colombia and the Latin America Final will be filled with emotion. There is plenty of talent on stage,” said Pelézinho.
