Dub Police Show Absolutely filthy. 'nuff said.

Zinc - November 26th Bassline/Garage/4x4 biz - Rinse FM

Zinc - Nov. 26th on Rinse FM Throwing down a fun mix here. I don't know if this is even classified as house anymore more, but he seems to throw a bit of everything thats four on the floor in the mix, including a few from back in the acid house days. Nice break from the detuned sorrows of dubstep. I threw this under breaks although its not really.

Stand Up



Monster Musick on Myspace Check out DJ Evol's - Stand Up, an Obama/MLK inspired tune. Bit of a funky roller, which I think is kinda rare in d-step, but I dig it. That organ intro is tops. Let me know what you guys think of it, I've dropped it at least everyday since my brother sent it to me. Definitely got me pumped for the election.

Proud of the USA

For getting out to vote with your hearts and minds instead of hate and fear. Finally we can live in the new millennium with our heads held high.

Just when thought Holy Ghost was dead...



This one comes along. Cracks me up everytime. jokes.

Monster Musick updates







Ok Dj Evol's new label finally has a myspace page to call home. Check out Monster Musick on Myspace There's four new tunes up. Slaughterhouse (featured on the new 12th Planet mix) is going to be on the first 12" which should be headed for tests right now. White labels might be out in time for X-mas? Anyways check Load Media U.K. for distro details if you are interested. I'm the goon responsible for the label art and logo design. This is the first time I've really done any art for the dubstep world, so hope you all dig it. Brad likes his 60's grindhouse monster movies, so I just went with that and tried to give it a contemporary feel. If anyone is interested in similar work, hit me up, who knows I might have time.

Also I just want to let you all know I've been working on Evol's "Sickness" video as well. A work in progress will probably be posted in the following weeks. "Sickness" came out on as SMOG L.A. 1st vinyl release, also featuring the "Smokescreen" by 12th Planet.

BTW I'm predicting Out of Breath will be the next big wobble, tune, I'd like to know what you guys think, post some comments and let me know. Show me enough blog love and I could possibly start doing some vinyl give-aways. And everyone likes free records, right?

DSF followup

A little more explanation to the Dubstep forum has been posted, and so for those that care I thought I'd share. IMO seemed to call out too much attention in a negative way, but perhaps it was for the best. Here's the post:


Like the empty space before a drop, the past few days were a dramatic pause for deliberate effect. Reactions have been mixed; positive and negative, public and private, opportunistic and confused. An indefinite timeframe of downtime was specified, yet interpreted by some as final. The questioning call of 'why?' has resounded. We obviously left the finality of it all a little open-ended: for a while we didn't know how long and we didn't want people to know. This wasn't an especially pragmatic move. It was one to instigate a response.

Birthdays are a good time to take stock, evaluate your life and think about the direction you're going in. Closing the forum for a few days has allowed us all to do this. This was the main point of the closure. It was a unanimous decision but all the moderators had their own reasons for going ahead with it as well. We felt the need to do it. Everyone has had the chance to think about what the forum means to them, which we think is a good thing. What if it was the end?

In all honesty, we were getting a headache from the constant noise, so we hit pause in an attempt to try and make people realize what is important to them. Perhaps we failed. Perhaps not. Ending it for good would have been an interesting move but this was never going to be permanent as it's far better to continue, forging the best environment we can for this music to be discussed and disseminated.

The value of any forum is determined by its users. This was always the strength of this forum in the past and perhaps now it is its weakness. This is both a matter of scale and success. Like the sound, 'The Community' has mutated and fragmented and is an entirely different entity today than it was in 2005. This is fine of course; this wasn't an attempt to change this. This wasn't a wheel up to try and take things back. We didn't think it would return things to how they were in the forum's infancy. It wasn't an elitist move. Yes, we would like more decorum and less idiocy but we know this is the internet; a place where currency is information which flows continuously often at the expense of quality. We paused the flow. It was a moment to reflect. All the moderators have and we hope you have too.

We realise that DSF is the online nucleus of the scene and to many away from the more established geographical hubs of the sound, the lifeblood of it. We know it is valued and we just want it to be the best possible place it can be for our users. This forum would not exist without the music or its users. But our users; DJs, producers, promoters and fans are able to shape it by their actions. 3 years in and it's hard to think that this forum has been anything less that catalytic in the music's development. Not specifically its existence but its function; what it has facilitated and what it has fostered - this international community.

So welcome back, make what you will of the past few days and if you haven't already, please download the BunZer0 3rd birthday mix and remember we're all here because of the music.

Dubstep Forum Closes!!!????

edit. 10/10/08 : Well apparently this was a false alarm of sorts, but here's what when down a mere four days ago. Dubstep forum is back, maybe it just ducked out for a bit so people can actually appreciate it for what it is, a music forum, not a soap opera. Anyways I'll leave this up, for kicks.

The following press release was posted on dubstep forum front page:

DSF PRESS NOTICE

Embargoed until: 6 October 2008, 00.01

WE ARE 3!

On 6 October 2005 Dubway created dubstepforum.com. 3 years on and here we are. A lot has happened in those 3 years. We’ve gone from being a community of just a few hundred to over 20,000. We’ve fostered a co-operative forum label and hosted a few raves, including the bete noire that was the dubstepforum.com awards. So whether you lurk innocuously, post ferociously, inform and engage debate or simply offer up your very much valued opinion on moderation issues; thank you for being a part of it.

To celebrate, please download and listen to this mix, expertly crafted by the indomitable BunZer0 using artisan ingredients produced by our very own members, highlighting the talent and passion at the heart of this community. It’s interesting to compare it to the 1st birthday mix by N-Type to see how the sound has progressed within 2 years. Check it out. The full tracklist can be found here.

So let’s clear a few things up. To kill the speculation, there will be no awards this year. After last year’s success / jolly good fun / catastrophe / embarrassment (delete as per your opinion), we have decided against doing them again. We’ve always been about putting the music and community first and the awards were merely an attempt to celebrate both these things but it also seems that those two things dictate whether or not the awards are a good idea. And this year they aren’t.

On the flipside, we are going to have a birthday party in November. There will be bass. There will be booze. There will be no Buffalo. November 14th is a date for your diary.

And oh yes, we’re also closing the forum. Indefinitely.

Happy Birthday!

DSF x

Here was my original response.

In the meantime people have started up another forum called http://www.thedubstepforum.com/.

I'm not a scenester, I'm just a guy that digs some tunes. I'm a bit bummed by the whole thing. I don't really know the behind the scene politics or gossip about the dubstepforum. I went there exclusively for mixes, tune IDs, and some insight on dubstep production and the scene in general. But I did enjoy the fact that big name DJs and producers posted on there, and I can read about there mixes, or know when new albums were dropping and what not. I'm a little sad about the whole thing to be honest, and will gladly spill some beer on the curb for it. RIP for now...

Argon Radio 14 September 2008 Man I really dig the sounds coming from SF these days. Always pushing forward but never forgetting the roots of the music. On one hand you got some slamming heavy b-lines processed, wobbled and distorted to fuck and on on the other you have some lush and thoughtful atmospheric samples sprinkled with ragga and hyphy snippets. Steel drums, horns, guitars, and lonely vocals. And somehow it never sounds cheesy or forced. And it always sounds like a shout from the future. Big big ups to Nicky Argon and Babylon System, forever raising the bar. Enough of my waffle, here's the tracklist:

New DJ Evol Tunes

Hey I got some new dubstep tunes from my bro, I can't release any teasers ATM but they are killer. If you are in the LA area you might be able to catch him droppin' them at a SMOG or Pure Filth night. Keeps ears peeled for the arcade bass roller, politically charged Obama (complete with killer MLK samples). Beyond Dis World is freaky sci-fi terror dub. The bassline is basically war of the worlds styled death rays. FInally No Mercy must have been inspired by that BBQ we had at Knifedreams, when we all got drunk and threw chinese stars at guns targets taped to a tree. Flute melody, Kung-fu samples, stomping b-lines, it's like he channeled the RZA circa 36th Chambers era. All quality tunes. Look out for his label Monster Musick, dropping some serious shit.

"Take Your Money" M.I.A. "Paper planes" dubstep rmx by The Grizwalds



Pretty much the samples are the only thing that keeps this interesting, as a tune on it's own, it's kinda sub-standard. I actually dread the day dubstep becomes just another dance music format to remix popular songs into, as it can really stand on it's own two feet. Vacation sample is jokes tho.

Another Crazy DNB Religious Vid - Limewax Zombie vs. Zombie



I think this one has jumped the shark, to be honest, but it's pretty crazy and spooky in the beginning.

Plastician - Rinse Fm 18808

Plastician 18.8.08 on Rinse FM Sorry for the euro dating, but thats how the file is named. Anyways this is a big one, keep a look out for Prime Cut's "Gash" at the 30 minute mark or so. Crazy distorted and liquified bassline. The following track is just as interesting. New sounds... get it.

Breakage, Stanza, Rusko & MC Rod Azlan on 1Xtra 15.08.08

Breakage, Stanza, Rusko & MC Rod Azlan on 1Xtra 15.08.08 Well to be honest, I'm not down with alot of this mix. Breakage is boring to me, just not my cup of drum n bass ya know. And Stanza a bit messy and all over the place at times, granted dropping a few slammers. His set picks up towards the end and gets quite aggro. So that leaves Rusko which is obviously the standout and the sole reason for me downloading this. It's a bit of heavy dload, but worth it for the last chunk of that Rusko mix. brawling... straight up fisticuffs, all over this shit, right here. BTW stole the link from B*E over at dubstep forum.

Plastician and Nomad August 4 Rinse FM Plastician kills it with some sick mixes and grime accapellas. Check the Crissy Criss tune and grime mash up about quarter of the way in, so big. Plastician is still have a few pops w/ technical diffuculties. serrato acting up and what not. but easily overlooked for such a scorcher of a set.

Lifted Music Podcast - Spor & Chris Renegade

Wow there's actually some decent DNB left in the world that I don't think is canned and old hat. This podcast proves it. Granted there are a few mis-steps. It goes will the territory these days, but overall I fully enjoyed this podcast. tracks and new bits by : Keaton & Hive, Noisia, Apex, Subfocus, Evol Intent + Ewun, Chris Renegade, Influx Datum and more. Exploring the darker side of rawr rawr tech-step smashes with the occasional dip in to funky and liquid flavors. But mostly it's the Lifted standard of mutated and twisted new strains of pulsating raw energy over a bed of broken beats. Beyond neuro-funk, beyond darkside, beyond metal. Good stuff! Download the Lifted Podcast!

Rusko - Cockney Knees Up BBC Radio 1

Hey this ones a few weeks old, but it's been on heavy rotation on my playlist. Haven't been able to locate a tracklist, but it's blazin' to be sure. All the usual suspects and then some. Fire! Rusko - Cockney Knees Up

Orakle Dynasty - Contact


Some hot lesbian kiss imagery render with minimal lines, soft color palette. Perfect for summertime pool party invasions at the Playboy Mansions grotto. There's Bukoskis-esque drawing on the back that nicely rounds out the shirt. You like lesbians and literature. nice one. You can turn some heads with this but just as easily blend in to a crowd if need be. I'm digging it, but again oversized...

Orakle Dynasty - Shanked



Bad ass Ninja Sword Comic Book Action. Oversized tho, so if you like clothes that fit it may not be for you. But rad design. Karma Loop descript as follows: printed with discharged ink and showcases several signature details including blue neck piping which extends to a contrasting shoulder stitch, a stitched red pyramid surrounding the foil inside hit and each tee is longer than a comparable tee.

p.s. sorry for the downtime gang, been enjoying my summer too much. I have tons to post from my LA trip. Will get to that when I can.

Spring Gear










Well it's been a long minute since laste posted. This crazy-ass Chicago weather had me down in the dumps for a bit, but its starting to finally feel like spring... Thought I'd post up some gear I've been checking. A few old ones, and some new ones mixed. Big print is still hot, and the old school Jeff Phillips style is coming back, at least in my eyes. Organic artsy shit is still sick when done proper, don't know how long it will hold out for tho. Here's the run down:
Abstraxx- Straxxbot geometric couture $32 Innes Strum Tee for $19-26.
Zero Asylum Tee, a bit crazy and aggro $21.95
Rockett Yucko - old school skate gore $24.95
Artful Dodger - Tiger and Swirl jungle madness $38

Say No to Bad Art

I don't normally post anything too negative up on the blog, but I feel compelled to by series of bad art. By now most you have heard via the internet of the emaciated dog displayed as art. It's pretty horrible, be warned. Petition Against bad shock art.

I read on a blog somewhere that the artist fed the dog food and gave him water between showings. He took him from the streets near the art gallery. I'm not saying it's art mind you, its not. It's a statement, sure but not particularly insightful or artistic IMO. (Art does not equal a political statement and a political statement does not equal art.) Something a college student would do to shock and provoke.

Update: now it's rumored to be a hoax. The point being is to see how gullible people are and spread internet petitions and rumors. Wow, how insightful. Still say its bad art... now it's just bad hoax art. Or maybe not. Frankly I don't want to spend anymore energy to find out the truth of the matter. Sorry, but anytime an artist view the audience as a target or enemy, you have to seriously question their integrity and intent. Three words to describe this "piece": Boring, insulting and sophmoric.

The abortion Yale girl is a an absolute hoax... or at least Yale is refusing to display it without the artist labeling it as a work of fiction. Basically a girl artificially insemenated herself a bunch of times and forced a miscarriage on herself multiple times

There's some other horrible performance piece recently as well. I'm not even going to go into the details, its fucking terrible.

Thing is this shit is kinda played out. I mean there were so many terrible and extreme performance artists dating back to the 60's http://www.freewebs.com/vienna-actionists/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viennese_Actionism
And all that crap that came out of New York. Ugh...points like this have been made before, It's not new, it's not poignant, interesting, insightful, forward thinking or inspiring... It's just a cheap play for press coming from a frustrated and boring/failed artist(s) that needs to shock because of the lack of skill and imagination to create anything meaningful. Whatever point they are trying to get across is immediately overshadowed by the completely tacky shock methods/proccess, which practically invalidates their statement. All I'm saying is at least GG ALlin had some funny songs to show for it.

Clipz - Ugly ft. Hollie G

Pretty dope/crude video exploring projected backgrounds, facepaint and crazy b-lines. It kinda works for me as it drives home the concept of ugly, dunno. I like Clipz on occassional, not a better one of his tunes, but nice still to see it all come together. Snagged it from the Dubplate blog.

Superrisk - SF Sesh 3-29-08

OMG! Large mix. Superrisk, 12th Planet, Antiserum, Roomate, Eskmo, Jsuave, Ripple, Lexxus... like 5 hours of madness. Forefront bizness, done over a laidback BBQ atmosphere. Crucial.

James Jean - serious



I've seen this guys work from the Prada animation movie the debuted a month or so ago and I thought it was really tight, but I kinda just skimmed his work, ya know. Got bored today and delved a little deeper, guy's a serious talent. Flowing lines, esquiste taste in color, and fantasical themes. Reminds me of his cover work for Fables at times, blending fairytale fantasy and horror/sci-fi. Clockwork Orange vs. Grim's. Have a look at James Jean.

DJ EVOL / 12th PLANET Split 12" SMOG



Yeah so my brother's split 12" is out and about. If you haven't heard the tune check Plastician's - Wake Up call mix, it's on there. It's a horror epic man, what can I say. Slow and heavy in the right places, and fast and crazy in the lick. It got some LFO bassline action that's not quite a wobble, more like a slow-motion earthquake. Its stalks and creeps like a good slasher flick should. Pure Sickness for sure. I haven't heard the flip, but I know how 12th Planet does, and it's sure to be a dutty rocker. It's being distributed by L.O.A.D. Media and I'm sure it will end up in all the usual online stores. Get on it, promos are all sold out!

Mortician - Crazed for Blood

This is what happens when I get bored at work and have had a bad day. I did the edit, footage is from Dawn of the Dead and the tune is Mortician - Crazed for Blood. NSFW due to violence etc... (well, I guess it depends where you work). Anyways I think this is a fun one.











A larger 640x480 version Mortician - Crazed For Blood can be downloaded as well.

BABYLON SYSTEM SPEAKS!!



I had the opportunity to do a quick little email interview with Babylon System, some of Dubsteps big hitters, belting out anthems such as Dancin' Shoes, Loaded, and Examination of Time. For those that don't know, Babylon System is comprised of producers Roommate and No Thing, hailing from San Francisco, killing dancefloors on a global level.

1. First things first, how did a duo from SF get into dubstep? You guys migrate from DNB, Grime, Reggae or just come across it online? What were you into before dubstep?

The first music I (roommate) ever mixed was dub, from there, both Tom and I have been on the dub, reggae, jungle, hip hop, trip hop, dancehall, and dnb tip. For years we both were big in to the dnb/jungle scene, playing out frequently and even running nights. I (room) was introduced to dubstep mildly through internet radio, but mostly got turned on to it from my homies in Salt lake city the Dubscouts. Tom first heard dubstep from a close homie of ours years back, our friend Ronin showed him a Joe Nice mix.

2. Tell me about the SF scene, I hear it's going off big these days. What the nights and who are the players?

THE NIGHTS: GRIME CITY, SURYA DUB, SHELTER, NARCOHZ, FULL MELT, ARGON, BRAP DEM, SHELTER, MAKEOUT SESSIONS!, BASSISM...... SF IS OFF THE CHAIN RIGHT NOW WITH DUBSTEP!!!

KEY PLAYERS: ANTISERUM, DJG, NICK ARGON, OSC,MATTY G, DJUNYA, SAM SUPA, SUBTEK, REDLINE LADIES, JUJU, RIPPLE, BABYLON SYSTEM, ROOMMATE, ESKMO, CYAN, MC DUH, MC CHILD, LUKENIO, LEXXXUS, BOGL It's a real healthy scene, always growning and filled with more homies than I can name.

3. Ok so Examination of Time, talk to me about that bass sound? Sounds just absolutely filthy, was there a bunch of resampling and processing involved? Probably a trade secret I know, but it's obviously not just a preset with a z-plane filter, right?

Started the bassline with some samples from a virus synth. Manipulated those samps with the NNXT in reason. Then split that up into a couple different layers all playin on top of each other. Made some of the variations by exporting the bass into Sonar and time stretching it. All the final sequencing was done in reason.

4. So do you guys ever have a message in mind when doing a tune? Dancin' Shoes is definitely a war cry to me. That "Stand up" sample and aggro bassline combo reminds me of some Bob Marley shit.

Our basic message is "it's crunk time" We just wanna make people dance.

5. Speaking of which there's a tune by Bob Marley called Babylon System and in it he sings "de Babylon system is the vampire, falling empire" and goes on to say it's a bunch of thieves and murderers, "suckin' the blood of the sufferers"... so is that something you can relate to? To me he's kind of singing about "The Man" ? Did that have something to do with guys choosing your moniker?

The Bob tune def gave us the idea for the name. We are trying to bring attention to the fact that we are all part of the Babylon System. We wanted a powerful name for the heavy music we are making.

6. What can we expect from you all in the future? Any label plans? Any tours? More solo projects from Roommate and No thing?

We got alot of stuff on the horizon. Releases scheduled on Argon recordings, Mode recordings, 10bag recs, Full Melt, Six6six, Heavy load as well as Spl and us just starting a label called Hollow Point that is gonna be putting out some knarly shit. We have def been playing shows alot seperately as well as together. We have both been dj's and homies for years and always love rockin parties. There will be alot of solo work this year as well, look out for releases from Roommate, No Thing, and OSC!!

7. Any shouts or last words?

SHOUT'S OUT TO ALL THE HOMIES IN THE GRIND, THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT!! THE BABYLON SYSTEM IS BUILT ON FRIENDSHIP AND GOOD VIBES! WEST COAST!!!!!!! WE WON'T STOP TIL WE GET ENOUGH!

Justin Lee Williams - Custom Kicks


This dude does some sick ink and pencil drawings... loving the custom kicks he did. Kinda outsider art-esque with hand drawn blocky typography. Some stark imagery for sure. Check out his blog for more work.

DJ EVOL - THE V's [DUB]

DJ EVOL - TERROR [DUB]

So my brother's been running full force with the D-step bangers lately. He's gonna let me post this new one up that he just dropped at the SMOG label party launch. I broke it up into 2 snippets so it doesn't get ganked. Part 1 . Part 2 part 2 is my fave bit, love that subbed out murk. absolutely filthy. Meanwhile, his tune Sickness is still getting massive play and is featured on Plastician's - Wake Up Call mix. Big ups Brad. :) Check his myspace.

Crooks & Castles - meh, no longer?


Crooks & Castles is pretty much straight up thug. Like way too thug even for me. If you watched the current season of the Wire you'll see plenty of young hoppers and bangers sporting this gear. Essentially not for me. I can't roll like that. Well, that's what I thought anyways. A few of their new prints caught my eye at Karma Loop. The Stand Off, as it'a called, remind me of some Freshjive gear from early 2007, but still slick in my minds eye. There's another called the New Bandito that's kinda cool as well, but a little too affiliated for my tastes. Anyways glad to see they are moving beyond crowns, dollar signs and handgrenades.

Grooverider sentenced to 4 years!

So UK Drum N Bass DJ Grooverider (Raymond Bingham) has been sent down for 4 years in Dubai. I remember when the case fist broke they had pinched him for porn and weed. What do you want it's Grooverider for Christsakes! According to Gulf News, "He was arrested at Dubai Airport on November 23, 2007, when a small transparent sack containing 2.16 grams of marijuana was found in his luggage." Apparentlyt he claimed he was unaware that he smuggled it in. Drug possession and porn is a big no-no in Dubai, and he was alledgely warned by the event's promoter that flown him in. Timesonline reported back in December: "Ram Nath, the music promoter who organised the show, said that he warned Mr Bingham of the strict laws of the country before his departure from London.“I sent a fax to him explaining all of our laws, including what he could and could not bring into the country. Unfortunately, he was booked by police before he got out of the airport,” Mr Nath said. More than a thousand fans were left disappointed after paying £25 for a ticket to the show, according to Mr Nath. He plans to sue Mr Bingham’s London management company for losses." Damn that's messed up. I was thought Groove was kind of a tool, but my brother always said he was a nice guy. I only met him once and he was a bit of a grouch. Anyways if you miss hearing Groove's lovely antics on Radio one you can always visit his soundbite site... But seriously someone break him out of jail, this a retarded reason to get locked up.

Vanishing Point 2009!


Dodge Challenger 2009
Originally uploaded by jcrash75

2009 Dodge Challenger is sick. They took the best bits of the 1970 Challenger and beefed it up, filled with 2009 muscle goodness, sprayed it Dukes-of-Hazard orange and threw down some racing stripes, Mopar is finally back! To quote Automotive.com : "The Challenger sits on Chrysler's LX platform, best known as the basis of the 300C, and it is fitted with a 6.1-liter Hemi engine, which delivers 425 hp at 6200 rpm and 420 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm. The Hemi badge is worth its weight in gold." I'm so getting this car!

The Return of American Muscle


Camaro 2009
Originally uploaded by jcrash75

The Camaro concept car from Chevy was a nice surprise at the auto show. There's some throwback design lines similar to the vintage style that made the Camaro a hot ride in the late sixties and early seventies. I especially like the fact they are emphasizing the wheel well again. My favorite Camaro , the '68, had a nice wide wheel well, and just really looked like a pure America Muscle car. It sat on the road and just dominated. So I'm taken by the new Camaro, and would definitely consider purchasing when/if they come out. Between this and the Dodge Challenger, I'm excited from American Muscle making a comeback. Sick!

Comcast - Entertainment Pitch

video This piece was part of a pitch-winning bid we did for Comcast. They didn't go in this direction, but still I kind of like the edit. I gather the source footage, did the edit, selected the music and animated the end tag. Super crazy fast deadline, but it was a fun pitch beause we had some cool ideas to work with. Now if only they could hook me up with some free cable!!

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of Trapcode Shine



Best use of Trapcode's Shine I've seen used in a long time. Seriously though, this could be a fun movie.

Kai Isselhorst - Facing What Consumes You



Kai's illustration/design looks about a year or two dated, but still executed really well. Deconstruction mixed with bold typography and some late 80's abstract paintings (the kind you'd find hanging at a local McDonald's/ Hotel). I like it. This particular piece caught my eye because the message sort of hits home. Facing What Consume You is The Only Way To be Free. Whatever you are in to, just dive right in, ya know? Not too get too deep or anything but I think everyone can kind of interpret that to find their own direction. Thanks to NetDiver for scraping this guy up. Check more of Kai Isselhorst.

Kinsey's in the new Juxtapoz



Check it out. On the newstands now. Issue #85 Feb 2008. Kinsey's a rad artist that sort of does this half-finished style leaves plenty of construction elements and half rendered figures with a limited black, red, dirty yellow and white color palette. Feels like a mash-up of printmaking, graffiti and figure studies. The one featured above is called Unintended Consequences 60x78 mixed media on canvas.
Not feeling his street art so much, but his paintings are hot. http://www.kinseyvisual.com

Insight - Aussie Fashion



New one and an old one from Insight that I'm feeling. Love the design on their Pop Girl T (Warhol vs. Lichtenstein?), but could never pull off the colors. I'm just a dark color kind of guy, what can I say. Anyways maybe I'll give it a shot when I can throw $40 dollar bill out the window.



This old Insight (from Winter 2007 - which is our summer), The Unlovers - Days of The Strange is where it's at. I had to special order it straight from their US warehouse, as the design originated in their Austrailian branch, not a ton got distributed over here. Hocky Masks, bugs, and a crytpic pulp tagline, how can you go wrong. Love this one.

Insight also has a surf/skate/mayhem movie coming out called Good Morning Pluto, I think. I'm not entirely sure to be honest because their site is always cryptic and hard to navigate. The US blog version is here: The main base

Ok guys, I plugged you, now give me free gear.

Select from my photostream on the CTA Photo Day. Let me tell you something, doing this photo project made the commute fly-by and a million times more interesting. I have something like 12 decent shots from it, but still so worth it. I reccomend everyone giving it a go, even if your public transportation isn't in jeopardy.

Epic - End Title/ Logo Build

Well this is just a soundless little snippet of an end tag logo build for Maytag's Epic Module. They wanted the logo to emerge from the grating of the washing machine, so here it is. I also did the basic motion design for main titles throughout the vid, but I don't have that footage ATM.
