Ambush - Chicago


Ambush is a blog run by a good friend of mine who now lives in Chicago. Basically this blog serves a purpose for fashion, music, art, photography & events. Definitely on the right track about tons of new and interesting artists that Ive been into more and more after visiting the site. Also, they gave props to So Gold and the upcoming news about them so you know they're good people, right right?!

Check them @ Ambush/Wordpress

Clae "Russell" Shoe - Olive Colorway




You cant always rock sneakers with everything, right?! Clae has been on point with their recent releases of their footwear. Upper leather, rubber outsole and makes the transitions from causal to streetwear depending on what outfit you have in mind. Definitely a good look on these. Also available in Black.

Married to the Mob @ Karmaloop


Dont know how new or recent this t-shirt is but its sure to turn heads from either guys or girls!
Married to the Mob has been putting it down for the last few years and they (in my opinion) have been on point for raising the bar for Women's streetwear since they jumped on the scene.
You can cop this one @ Karmaloop along with other select styles.


The Hundreds Spring Line Preview


The Hundreds posted their Spring line preview and I have to say some of the hoodies are just ill!
Also, this little guy makes me want to go out and buy some new jeans or kicks..or a puppy.
More photos, Mos Def stopping by the store and pictures of the new Spring apparel.

We're Back!

Shawn and I are trying to be consistant on updating this to the best that we can so hang in there when you come through the site and there hasnt been a damn update in a few days! So stop with the emails! ;)

Between him playing out in Singapore and South East Asia a couple times out of the week, its hard for him to hit this thing up as much as he wants to so if you notice, I tend to post a hell of a lot more than he does! All good though, hes doing his thing and wrapped up a new mix as of last night so that will be posted a little later today so get ready for some BANGERS!

So yeah, thanks for sticking around and also to note this shit has been really taking off in the past few weeks and its just going to get better.

Colin Munroe - I Want Those Flashing Lights



This tune has been on rotation for me since Monday or so when I had seen it on Mr. West's Blog.
Colin, from Ottawa, Canada did this unofficial remix of the track and it was just posted on there. Its actually pretty good and has the whole indie-rock, Oasis type feel to it. Definitely a good tune by all means though!
Hit Discobelle for the video as well.

New Balance A09 - Hemp Pack


Here something a little different from the New Balance camp - the A09 Hemp pack. The sneakers come with a seamless hemp upper in two colorways. Structure and logos have been applied with a wax like liquid, giving the pack a home-made feel and look. The beads on the laces is a nice touch, something we have already seen on Visvim shoes as well.

On that note, this weekend for myself has been nothing BUT music production and various design stuff for spring release so watch this spaaaaace!
