Australia makes weird shit look good once again. It seems that the Aussie’s have obscurity on lock down. When I try to take photos of people in Nascar shirts, it looks like a redneck high school project, but when Gadir Rajab takes photos of people in Nascar shirts it’s contemporary and edgy as fuck. It probably helps that Gadir knows how to work a camera and has low fi fashion photography on lock down. It also probably helps read more >

Sean Pineiro just recently released his debut album, Saved Once Twice, on Cologne-based record label Ki Records. Sean’s music is down-tempo, sample-based electronic music, which Ki Records praised for its complexity. In fact, it’s the complexity of Sean’s music that eventually led Ki Records to release his debut album.
Saved Once Twice is a layered, moody catalogue of tracks with a vast palette of sounds, ranging in harmonies and piano chords, with lush vocals and read more >
We are usually not so much into car rallyes but… well… what the hell.
Kudos to director Ben Conrad, creative director Brian Scotto, and cinematographer Isaac Bauman. Not to forget the Baja Beach Babes, of course.

The red wine blends with the Camembert in my mouth as I get carried away to another place. Julien’s voice lies in the air like a whisper while Fabien is supporting his partner on a mandoline. In this very moment the two musicians are IN the music, totally spaced out. I can feel the non-verbal connection between them, something like a sixth sense of understanding each other without speaking, just through the read more >
Mario Baumspringer and Diego Martinson are Casi Baile which is Spanish for ‘Almost Dance’.
The duo met in Barcelona, both obsessed with electronic music, and everytime they would meet they spent their time showing one another the latest tunes they had discovered. This accelerated more and more over the years, and became a DJ/blog project pushing the boundaries far beyond electronic music.
On their blog Mario and Diego publish DJ sets that are of an extraordinary intelligence, and that demonstrate a read more >

Time for some vintage music collection.
I found my all time favorite Hip-Hop mixtape in the misty haze of the Soundcloud, and want to share it with you for a belated Music Monday.
Witness DJ Vadim‘s and Primecuts‘ masterpiece ‘Architects Of The Great’ – a rarity pearl of UK’s experimental Hip-Hop history. The mix was distributed on tape in 1998 in a limited edition, only comprising some hundred copies.

I hear a honk and startled I turn around. I see a black car and I pause tentatively as the tinted window starts to lower.
“Dersu!” Luiz looks back at me through the window. He’s a big smile of hurtling energy, contagious in his incredible stoke for life, “I got your shades brother!!!” he says laughing.
He tips his bag and empties the boxes onto the seat as I stick my read more >

Sometimes my generation appears confused, on the lookout for value orientation. There are many who claim to know which way to go or what is the right thing to do. Too many times capitalistic ambitions predominate the ones that intend to do good because often they don’t yield as much. The world of today does not make it easy knowing who to believe and what to believe. Conclusively, many opt for nothing.
Luckily, there is read more >
What do Arnold Schwarzenegger, Miley Cyrus and Rufus Wainwright have in common? Not a whole lot per se….other than their love for American summers and a feature on this mixtape! This compilation is an adult capri sun on a hot summers day. Pure auditory confetti. So while the days are still long and the nights even longer, cap off the rest of your summer with some made to order sounds from Room Service. Knock knock, your order is read more >

In a wonderful stroke of creative umami, it’s no surprise that ‘Gomorrah’, one of the most gritty and frighteningly authentic, dramatic TV series to come out of Italy would be set to the score of the most hauntingly mellifluous bands in Italy, Mokadelic.
Mokadelic started as ‘Moka’ back in 2000, before changing their name in 2008 to Mokadelic when their notoriety as a band began to shift it’s focus to composing emotional musical read more >
