We introduced you to dance prodigy Ian Eastwood earlier this year and since then he's been busy perfecting the first-ever dance mixtape, AdultLessons, which he officially dropped via DatPiff on Wednesday, Dec. 16.
After working extensively with artists like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa and Childish Gambino, the Chicago native compiled an excellent project, which sets his innovative choreography to curated tracks from his favorite artists (including the aforementioned collaborators, of course).
“Playing off the idea of the musicians that I’m around, typically the first thing you do in a collaborative sense is a mixtape," Eastwood explained, describing his intent with the project.
"There’s a lot of comparisons and collaboration between dance and music and I wanted to find a way to bring those two worlds together in a way people hadn’t seen before. I want people to sit back and think for a second and that’s where this idea really came from; we’re going to change culture and put out a dance mixtape, which has never been done.”
