“The Future (part 1)”

Introducing our newest design – “The Future (part 1)” which is influenced by tomorrow and of what the future’s fonts might be fused with those of today, which ties back into our music projects where we’ve cleverly blended jazz classics with Wu-Tang acappellas.

“The Future (part 1)” is the latest in our two-part offerings where SHAOLIN JAZZ is used as iconography and or the backbone of the art.

Beyond The Streets / Recap 1

I remember when the Beyond the Streets exhibition first opened in L.A. (featuring mostly West Coast writers) a few years back and me definitely wanting to check it out, so when I found out that they were doing an east coast version in NYC – me attending was a no brainer.

To put it short, its everything that I thought it would be and if you’re a fan of graffiti, street-art, and contemporary art then do yourself a favor.  The show stays open until the end of this Sept.

Props to Roger and his team for a well produced show, including all of the programming and product that goes with it, and to check out part 1 of my recap click Read the rest of this entry

CAN I KICK IT? / feat Big Trouble in Little China / Recap

This summer has provided a lot of firsts for SHAOLIN JAZZ and our recent CAN I KICK IT? in Milwaukee is another welcome first to that list.

We were happy to be invited to be apart of the Marcus Center’s hugely popular “Peck Flicks” series which was located outdoors at their Peck Pavilion – an outdoor amphitheater.  And while Milwaukee has a pretty relaxed vibe, the attendees at our event were anything but, bringing a huge boost of energy from the opening scene with Egg-Chen.

Thank you to the Marcus Center for bringing us out, thanks to everyone who helped spread the word, and huge thanks to everyone who attended.

CAN I KICK IT? / feat PREDATOR / 9.1.19

If you’ve been to one our CAN I KICK IT? screenings then you’ve got a very good idea of how we plan to reshape the O.G. version of the late 80’s sci-fi/action classic PREDATOR starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse “The Body” Ventura.

Join us this Sunday Sept 1st at Creative Alliance.  The movie starts at 7:30 PM.

CAN I KICK IT? / feat The Last Dragon / Recap

Our final CAN I KICK IT?, of the Hudson River Parks’ Hudson RiverFlicks outdoor screening series, couldn’t have been more hip-hop (from its early beginnings), an exercise in resourcefulness, or DIY.

The passing weather made it impossible for us to conduct the screening at the designated location, so the team at Hudson River Parks had a plan B: take an empty hanger/warehouse space that they never activate that had only 1 working light, bring in a generator for power, use one of the exposed bring walls for a screen, open up the garage doors, and bring chairs and the A/V equipment.  The result was a uniquely memorable experience that was intensified by a raw space in New York.  Classic.

The only downside were the people who could not make it due to our quick location change as well as those who were unfortunately turned away, as we reached our 200 max capacity very early.

We’ve had an incredibly fun run with the two CAN I KICK IT? screenings that we were fortunate to conduct as apart of Hudson River Parks’ series and we’re hopeful to come back next year.

Thanks again to Hudson River Parks for bringing us, props to everyone who helped, salute to everyone who spread the word, and thank you to everyone who attended.

More Vancouver

Vancouver is modestly incredible in that parts of it are similar to Monte Carlo, San Francisco, Miami, Seattle, and San Diego.  Depending on your vibe they’ve got you covered.

And “modestly incredible” is our best description because locals practically don’t mention those attribute, yet those kinds of environments exist in Vancouver’s chill universe unto itself.

They’ve also got great amenities such as their super efficient late-night public transportation (including a 3 line train system that runs pretty much every 15 min) along with the vinyl and lifestyle heavy Beat Street Records and notable streetwear boutique Livestock.

Simply put, you’ve got to visit for yourself and for more pics click Read the rest of this entry

The screening will take place next Fri Aug 23rd at the Peck Pavilion, the movie starts around 7:15 PM, and its a free event.
