NIKE

That’s the detail of the tongue label on C-Mon & Kypski’s limited edition SB Dunks…Here’s the details on Kypski’s new mix.

Our Dutch turntablist friend Kypski is the man, and he’s got this new mix that’s full of the joints we play in the office from MGMT, Digitalism, Boreta, Booka Shade & more. The cuts are crazy and remind us of when hip hop mixtapes had real DJ’s who could scratch. For good measure, we’ve added this youtube clip so you can see this guy in action. I don’t think he made this mix sitting at the drumset but who knows.

Can’t wait to have these guys back in the city and if you don’t know about their band, look them up under BAND WATCH and you’ll find out we’ve been friends with them for a bit.

This DOWNLOAD LINK is going to expire so hurry up and get the mix!

Hey, Willow, what’s the problem?

You know we post all your joints, we run around the East Village together and stick your stickers on faces of babies in phone booth advertisements, we even keep your Obey mix on display.

You couldn’t have told us you had a new mix?
Man…
Well, now we’re not going to explain it, our readers are just going to have to check it out for themselves.

INSA

We’re just absolutely loving this INSA modern twist on a classic retro bubble chair created by UK’s Rousseau design. The chair is actually illuminated like the picture above, and comes with a white fur cushion. The piece was created for London’s DesignerBlock art festival taking place right now through tomorrow.

Nat “DJ Morse Code” Morse, straight out of Los Angeles, is always a guest of the house, a DJ for the DJs and an all around swell kinda guy. As part of DJ AM’s artist group Deckstar, which houses such international DJ’s as Jazzy Jeff, Steve Aoki, Stretch Armstrong & The Alchemist, Morse Code has been rocking some major nights around the country.

Beyond the club nights, Nat has been a record collector and producer, who’s garnered some attention for his Fusion Batches series, a mix of rare funk and jazz records. The first one was “one of the best mixes I’ve heard, ever” according to Jazzy Jeff. The second Fusion Batches should be available early October, but we’ll tide you over with a few rare choice cuts of the month. And if you’re asking why it’s only 5 joints, well, these records are expensive and he spent time finding them. Cool? Cool.
