The ImagiNation

The idea to collaborate for a photo series had been in the air for a while between me and the costume designer of An!mal Heartwear Berlin. Our idea was to give birth to mythical creatures—half man, half beast—who throughout history have been culturally attributed with the divine. Dancers and artists supported us in the project.

Your Gay Thoughts

The song featured today is taken from the album of a young Slovenian band called Your Gay Thoughts (extra thumbs up for the name, guys). Their music is extremely dope and what makes it even cooler is the artwork of Japanese animator Densuke28 who provided the music video for the third track of the album.

Tokyo Neon Lights by Liam Wong

Photographer and computer game designer Liam Wong caught my attention today. On his Instagram profile he showcases some brilliant compositions from the streets of bustling Tokyo. The lighting of the neon-lit sceneries is enhanced with post effects, giving Wong's Tokyo a distinct surreal feel.

erik – No Boundaries EP

Spring is coming. Still looking for the perfect soundtrack to dust off that apartment of yours, and change the wardrobe in your closet to summer season? We have something for you. Our friend erik from Aarhus, Denmark, sent us his new EP that goes by the title "No Boundaries". For me it served as an exorcism of the winter blues.

Mating Ritual

"I was raised on Ray Lynch, Enya, and Lorry Anderson, their music was very little drum work, all pads, sync work, and sweeping orchestral melodies." We sit across from Ryan Lawhon the genius behind Mating Ritual in his Los Angeles Arts District apartment. I watch his cat walk across one of his keyboards and imagine him as a 4 year old in Oakland Hills on the east bay of San Francisco, listening to his mothers records, in a blissful trance, his mind subconsciously logging every tiny detail of his favorite songs.

Gradual

Gradual are a dynamic Polish duo that create dark and pulsating techno. Like many of their genre's counterparts, like Chris Liebling and Adam X, Gradual's sound draws you in with driving rhythms and deep sub-bass.
