Watch ‘Kings Of Spank,’ a Litefeet Documentary

“My goal is to bring everyone together, to make the people around me happy when I dance,” says one litefeeter, his silhouette framed by the bright square he approaches. This is the introduction to Kings Of Spank, a short documentary by Minka Farthing-Kohl about the team of the same name. It’s hard not to support an outlook like that.

Farthing-Kohl, who’s known for short films like Stray Dogs, premiered the clip at Nowness magazine, a frequent supporter of local dance culture. The film finds Spaceman, Kidd Patt, and Naynay getting lite in a sleekly lit studio while talking about what dancing means to them and what they hope for the future. It cuts from shots of them doing the Harlem Shake, rocking ankle tricks, and doing routines. They even install a pole for a couple moves perfected in the subway for showtime.

The music goes back and forth between two separate litefeet beats, Fliqht’s “Resume” and Jaylive’s “Bring It Back.” (Jaylive is part of a team of litefeet producers called New Mem if you want even more beats.) There’s also a couple more atmospheric songs thrown in there by Jim E Stack and Gary Gunn.
