20150224_211332

Our 1st CAN I KICK IT? of 2015 was nothing short of dope.  Despite not having done one since Nov. ’14 and us conducting it in another room in Marvin, people showed and proved with their attendance and really engaging both facets of the event: the movie and the accompanying music.  Salute to all of the attendees, Marvin for bringing us back, Shaw Bros Films for asking us to be apart of their re-emergence campaign, Madison Davenport PR, Som Records and Palace 5ive, and Lyft as our transportation sponsor.

Stay tuned for more as we’re now doing CAN I KICK IT? the fourth Tuesday of every month on Marvin’s upstairs deck.  For more recap pics click Read the rest of this entry

Pete Rock- One Life To Live (Instrumental)

The simplest ideas are always the best: loop your favorite beats as hour long videos and call it the “Homework Edition” because you can definitely work to them. Props to Soul Vibes: link.

Cassette Tayble

Need to cop.  Found this via Mannie Fresh – a company by the name of TABYLE, which is comprised of three young artist/entrepreneurs (Taylor, Justin and Zach) who set out to make a product that would not only be a functional piece of furniture, but also a nostalgic piece of art. Influenced by homemade mixtapes, pop-art and modern design TAYBLE caters to musicians, artists and the young at heart.
