These posts have been fun. I have received lots of great feedback regarding things I find around the net. I spend way too much time searching for music, clothing and gadgets on the net and often come across things I want to share. I try consolodate a lot of what I find into these posts. We are on Volume 6! Get to know of a few of my favorite musical gems + fashion brands.
I’m yet to get a feel in regards to the clothing but I do love the philosophy behind their brand. I also dig how they incorporate the inspiration of NYC and it’s dirty and f$&*ked up ways into their philosophy. It’s quite an inspirational video in how they developed their product and turning down a deal with Urban Outfitters. Peep the vid and check out their shop!
If you listen to my Monday night radio show odds are you have heard Mara Hruby in one of my sets. She’s set to drop a new EP of songs as a reflection of a recent heartbreak. I had the chance to chop it up with her yesterday and looking forward hearing more of these gems. In the mean time grab her single!
“I’m also discovering myself as I discover product” This quote is powerful and I can draw parallels between the content I come across here that impacts me to want to share it on this blog. I dig Hiroki’s perspective of fashion and longevity. At 35 I have come to realize that If I purchase something to wear I need to be able to pull it out of the closet 10 years later or else I am not purchasing it. Check them out.
This is a great Roy Ayers cover by Reginald Omas Mamode IV. He’s another Monday night favorite on my radio show. A very mysterious musical figure with a great soul edge to his work complete with crisp drums and samples.
The whole concept of making a statement with what you are wearing is hit on the head via Co-founder Ouigi Theodore Of Brooklyn Circus. I love this shop up on the Bay Area. They understand the importance of communication via the net in understanding of business owners caring about their customers. Get hip to them!
I love this kid! 17 years old out of NYC and set to rock SXSW this year. Somewhere on the net you might be able to find his “Stressin” track produced by Disclosure. Peep the vid.
