I.D. Annual Review

I.D. Magazine's 54th Annual Review came out this week. And its with great excitement that I can finally announce that we've been awarded Best Packaging of the Year for the PT3 Ultramagnetic Collection.

My Favorite Things was a great success last week. Despite all the confusion in the music industry and clubland, the parties seem to be getting better and better. With music being so accessible these days, its harder to differentiate from all of the other nights out there. Its not enough to simply ha...

Digitized

After 5+ years without a proper music setup (and very limited access to my vinyl), I finally went and bought one of these USB turntables. At only $150, its not a bad look if you just want something quick and easy to convert your records. I'll let you know how it goes.

DJ Power

One of the best things about living in NYC is that everyone eventually comes to you. Over the years, I've enjoyed playing host to all of my favorite DJs. This past weekend, Daz-I-Kue of Bugz In The Attic was back in the area for a quick gig. Beats, beats and more beats. Daz is constantly making n...

Week in review

Look out for American Mixtape... coming soon. One of my musical heroes, Dego from 4 Hero, has recently moved to Brooklyn from London. My iPhone camera went a little buckwild and managed to produce this photoshop-looking image. Dego has a new EP on Neroli records under the name Nutmeg that's re...

Bolasco

Javi and Julia run a cool design studio / brand in Madrid called SuTurno. One of their latest creations, the Bolasco tote bag, is made by cutting up old sacks they stumbled upon in a warehouse. Each bag is constructed from different parts of the sack, giving each one unique qualities (think Freit...

Otl Aicher & Munich 72

With the Beijing Olympics coming up, its a somewhat relevant time to reflect on one of my (and many others) favorite 'design programs' of all time-- the 1972 Munich Olympics by Otl Aicher and his team. The posters have become major collectibles, and someone has recently erected a site dedicated to t...

Lots of Time...

I was sad to have missed Kanye's private performance for the G-Shock 25th anniversary. (See Jeff's report here.) But my crew at Exposure, who produced the event, were nice enough to lace me with one of the limited watches. Shouts to Tom and Sarah.

N.E.R.D 'Seeing Sounds'

I'm usually a sucker for most of Pharrell's productions, but never really grew into the last N.E.R.D record. The new one released on Tuesday, however, is super hot. Rolling Stone even gave it 4.5 stars. Jam of the moment: "Yeah You"

Typographic Ballet

Another good show in London worth checking is my man Ebon Heath's opening, "Stereo.Type: A Typographic Ballet" at Carte Blanche gallery from June 13. "Grown in opposition to urban 'noise' created through advertising mediums in the modern day landscape, Stereo.type explodes the written word." ...

Last Step In Jazz

Shout to the whole Tokyo jazz scene, who celebrate the closing of Club Yellow with this massive line-up. I remember first hearing about Yellow in the early 90s via the UFO parties. Luckily I managed to get there once (shout to Toshio), before its doors shut. But with endings, comes new beginning...
