IN CONVERSATION – SLANG INC. (THE REDBULL SESSIONS)

Slang Inc is responsible the visual aesthetics that I love in music. And it’s still around in shops, boutiques and packaging. During our conversation (thanks to Jon Oliver) we find out that Julian (Slang Inc) actually won a Grammy for Best Packaging on a Miles Davis Box set!! We talk about the creative process of putting together a visual in some shape or form that coincides with the project at hand.

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Emily King swung through the RedBull Studios in NYC to talk about her journey of ups and downs plus a special treat to meet her mother who served as a wonderful backbone to the artist! Emily opens up about label deals that attempted to change who she was as a person and her reaction.

IN CONVERSATION – SOPHIA CHANG (THE REDBULL SESSIONS)

I first got hip to Sophia Chang via her amazing site. Having played with photoshop I often wondered how she was able to do these amazing illustrations of rappers and NY figures. I then got hip to her work with Staple Design and had been bugging her for a while about being on my podcast. Since then she has been curating projects and has a project in the works with Puma!

NYC SNAPSHOTS

NYC SNAPSHOTS

Day One of rehearsals for this big show is done. We finished rehearsals and I instantly headed to the Lower East Side to snap some shots and grab some Bao! Baohaus is the spot! Managed to break out the camera while my crazy cabby fought his way through the city. Hope you dig these snapshots!

SNAPSHOTS | 1-15

SNAPSHOTS | 1-15

I have a new found passion and appreciation for taking snapshots along highways. My weak bladder causes me to stop at restrooms along the high way just about once every 45 minutes and for some odd reason I tend to bring the camera with me, never really prepared for what to see or who I might meet. Hope you dig these snapshots!
