AM Radio recently had the pleasure of producing one of our notable live murals during this year’s “Crafty Bastard’s” festival, produced by the Washington CityPaper, via Cricket Wireless. Sheila Reed (head of CityPaper advertising) has reached out to us in previous years to provide visual creative enhancement for a participating brand and this year Cricket was interested.
Shouts to Sheila Reed for another successful year of Crafty Bastards (heard over 5000 in attendance) and Cricket Wireless for bringing us out and shouts to the crew – Aniekan Udofia for holding down the painting duties and Wes Clark, and Buck for the setup.

DJ 2-Tone Jones and I have been working with artist Aniekan Udofia since about 2000. From exhibiting his works at our monthly art show (the now defunct Artz $ Craftz), to us three being three of the founding members of the creative group AM Radio, we’ve worked on numerous projects together so it was a no-brainer to integrate Aniekan’s talents into SHAOLIN JAZZ.
For his part in the project we simply told Aniekan to develop a visual interpretation of SHAOLIN JAZZ which he did to a T. Below are the remaining works (which were exhibited in their entirety at our NYC Listening Party) which are for sell – $30.00 (USD) with FREE SHIPPING. Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping (domestic and international). Payments are accepted via PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org and direct questions to the same email (SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY). NOTE: Please indicate painting of purchase via item number and color (ex. SJ001 – Orange, NYC Black + Green), all paintings are 1 of 1, spray paint on canvas, and all sales are FINAL.

Big shout to everyone that participated, if you’re on Facebook search “Liquid Soul – arts experience” to see the full shoot, otherwise click the link for select joints: Read the rest of this entry
LIQUID SOUL was one of the best times AM Radio has had in a while. To be honest, the majority of our Live Art Murals are client based projects that seldom happen in DC and even when they do they aren’t events AM Radio is doing, so, for us, to execute LIQUID SOUL in DC for…well, us and to receive the kind of response we received was pretty gratifying.
Practically everything fell into place with attendees even arriving before 7pm. From the Vitamin Water enhanced paints used by the artists, DJ 2-Tone Jones spinning rare grooves, a “flavors of DC” video shown featuring colorful portraits of DC area residents (AM Radio friends and family), and people taking full advantage of the Community Wall, LIQUID SOUL really took on a life of its own.
Big shout to everyone who came out, huge thanks to Vitamin Water for sharing our vision, Frank 151 and CityLife for the media support, the promo/pr hit squad (Kat, Akil, Tyrone, Cherisse, Alexis), Teri (Rosina Photography) for killing the photo shoots, Dax for the video, Alex, David, and Jeramie (The Fridge DC), and the AM Radio team (Gerald, BUCK!, Adra, PJ, Aniekan, 2-Tone, Wes, and Lance).

Thanks to everyone that came through to Photo Shoot #2. Its really impressive to see the support and interest everyone has shown in LIQUID SOUL which has been evident in the event’s build-up.
I gotta say, watching the b-boy battle between Kokayi’s son and Rhome along with meeting my new niece (what’s up Syd!) had to be the highlights of my day.
Thanks to Rosina Teri Memolo for shooting, thanks to everyone that came out, and be on the lookout for pics from photo shoot #2.

Really looking forward to this event – its one you don’t want to miss. The illest thing about it is that this was conceived during a conversation Aniekan and I had 2-3 months ago:
Wednesday, Sept .1 at The Fridge DC, 7pm to 11pm, located in the rear alley of 516 8th St SE (across from Matchbox, Capitol Hill)
*Live painting: each live painting will be inspired by and painted using a flavor of Vitamin Water of the artist’s choosing
* Complimentary Vitamin Water
* Complimentary Cocktails courtesy of Bacardi Read the rest of this entry
Despite the 104+ degree heat in DC, the launch of Temporium went off well. The customization work AM Radio did to the bathrooms received some good praise, the designers stayed busy and everyone had a good time.
