Kenny Parmalee (78 and Sunny)
This mix was inspired by the 2013 Burning Man Festival. An amazing year that I will remember for years to come. My good buddy Dersu and I were lucky enough to play atop of Skybar, a 2 story high dessert night club. A truly unforgettable experience that was a highlight of this years playa jaunt. The tracks found on this mixtape made the Skybar rock and kept Salty Jack’s and read more >

TheAcid_EP_WT-2


Iceland’s ‘The Acid’ (also, ∴ The ꓃ ᑄ ꒛ ᗌ ∴) is quickly gaining recognition for their most recent release of his debut self-titled EP. The face, or perhaps faces behind their sound is yet to be revealed to the world and it’s only through Soundcloud that I’m able to pin them to any location. Whether this anonymity is intriguing to some or frustrating to others is irrelevant – ‘The Acid’ has our attention. Vocals like read more >

sophie-alexia_art_witnessthis-4

I have to admit that’s one of the most badass french names i’ve heard in a long time. Being born with a name like Sophie-Alexia Joly de Lotbinière you can imagine the pressure to be really good if you ever mentioned to anyone that you wanted to be an artist. Sophie-Alexia took her craft seriously from the beginning and spent time studying painting in Florence Italy at Charles H. Cecil Studios and then graduated from The School of read more >

“Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.” – Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
Inspired by shorter days, intimate gatherings and transitions felt both within and around us – this compilation remains playful and upbeat yet takes into account the tenderness of cooler weather, waning sunshine and longer nights spent beneath the sheets. Enjoy this September’s mixtape, KŌZĒ.

I first met Clemens at a techno festival in Garbicz, Poland.
It was at a bar, third night into the festival in between two amazing DJ sets that the two of us found ourselves in a conversation about men, women, and desire. I remembered that guy even after the festival, because he claimed to not give a fuck at all about how read more >

neil craver_Omni-Phantasmic_darkroom_witnessthis-5

Neil Craver has been able to capture the human form underwater better than we’ve seen in a long time. It draws upon the colored underwater stills from Michael Muller’s great white shark series but instead of ferocity we are given elegance. Neil speaks to the series in an abstract sense of Omni-Phantasmic essentially defined as A combining form denoting all, every, everywhere; as in omnipotent, all-powerful; omnipresent; omnivorous..
We were very moved by this work and love read more >
