Instead of making a video based on an existing song, the Ice Queen video project challenged musical artist Hot Sugar to produce an original song based on the final version of a music video after it had been made. To create the video an open call was put out to New York City actors and dancers encouraging them to come perform completely original dance moves in front of a green screen. After weeks of editing and animation the video was handed to Hot Sugar who was charged with the task of creating a song based on the compilation of dance moves and performances.

Known as Los Angeles' "Ambassador of Boogie Funk," dãm-funk represents the citizens of the Funkmosphere. Headquartered in the Culver City section of L.A., dãm (pronounced: 'Dame' as in Damon) spent the last few years cultivating a musical renaissance rooted in the early-'80s styles known as Boogie, Modern Soul and Electro-Funk.
As a DJ/selector, dãm attracts the most discerning Boogie Funk afficionados within driving distance of his storied Monday-night Funkmosphere parties (as you can see in the video).
