Converse x Footlocker...

Didnt see this one coming at all. Converse x Footlocker, okay nothing new there but the video, that shocked me. SuperTed and others memebers of London's Fixed scene doing what they do best. Shame the shoe is whack! Enjoy!

Big L Rest In Peace...

Lamont Coleman AKA Big L
*May 30th 1974- 15 February 1999*

Recently Played...

Skream 'Raw Dogz'. I dont think this got an official release and came out as one of his generous Freeizm downloads. Hard! Not one for your weak laptop speakers!

Maddslinky 'Ruled by Your Motions' taken from the 2010 record Make A Change.

Erykah Badu: Gone Baby, Dont Be Long...

Flying Lotus takes up the role of director again, this time for Erykah Badu's 'Gone Baby, Dont Be Long'. i love the visual!

Levis track Bike...

This is a one-off track bike created by Levis, it features some serious detailing including a denim saddle and denim grip tape. Not too keen on the white deep-V but i guess they needed to break up the blue. Overall i like!
