Many talented dancers entered the 'Lets Get Hectic' dance competition for Ephwurd & SWAGE's new single "Hectic," and the winning entry has finally been selected!
Personally chosen by Basie (Ephwurd) himself, Andrew's entry was chosen for his unique blend of different styles, his intense passion for dancing, and his Jazz-inspired flow, which speaks to a very important influence in Ephwurd's complex musical style.
