This Charming..... single.

I've known Theophilus London for a year now, since the release of This Charming Mixtape. This mixtape made a lot of noize on the bloggers community, and now, I learn that Humdrum Town (that was featured on the mixtape) has been released in an official version as his first single with Green Label Sound.... upcoming album? I sure hope so!

Beyonce & Lady Gaga - Video Phone

Nice visual touch...2 seconds into the video, and you already know it was directed by Hype Williams... However, I can already say that i'll be annoyed by the song in a couple of days.... I'll have to please my eyes with the sound off!!! @Gaga : You nice, but it's hard to look good next to Beyonce!! Nice try tho'!

Portrait : Le Matos

I know I talk alot bout them. Watayawant! I like what they do. Bande-a-Part, a Radio-Canada station for everything that is NOT mainstream, has done a nice portrait of them. Check it out. And if you don't understand.... learning french could be usefull, either to understand the video, to sound awfully arrogant when you talk to your relative, or to pick up any girl in the USA!.

Admiral WT & Sector-7 WT from DC shoes Life Collection - Holiday 2009

DC will release somewhere in December these new shoes from the Life Collection. Personnally, I intend to get a grab of the Sector-7 (the low one on the upper-right), since I've been looking for nice clean lightgreys to wear at work lately. Lots of details on the upper of the shoe.

Poirier interview in Shoes Up

I've discovered this mag a year ago.... made in Paris, written in french, english and japanese.... nice sneaker mag.... I prefer it to SneakerFreaker because it covers a wider range of subjects about urban culture. Our boy, Montreal's own Poirier, gives an interview in the latest one. He gives a great shout out to my boys Omnikrom! Since Poirier himself posted the full thing, I give myself the right to repost.... Bonne Lecture!

Teki Latex X Phenomenon collab.

French rapper/producer/DJ Teki Latex (Sound Pellegrino Records , TTC) was asked by Japan-based Phenomenon to create a caspule line of clothing inspired by his own style. Dandy-style cardigans, hats, canes, polos.... I like the first pic that leaked on the net..... the Polar Bear cardigan!

Chromeo is back

2 years after the great Fancy Footwork, Montreal's own Chromeo is back with a new single called "Night by Night". Same sound, same perfect balance of 80's flavor. It can lead us to think that a new album will be out soon... While we wait, listen to this remix....

Can you see that star through the cloudy sky...

Hey fellas!! I come back to you on this rainy saturday (at least on this part of the world) to bring to your attention this niiiice remix. It's already playin on mainstream radios like Z103.5 (Toronto). I invite you to hit the link below (since embedding was not permitted). LMFAO brings a really nice touch to this club anthem... is there any music group actually that refers more to clubbin than LMFAO??

Almost 30years later....

As you may have noticed, I haven't been a "post whore" lately. I'm working really hard to turn my basement into a nightclub for an upcoming event at my place. However, I had to take a break to give you this.

TRON Legacy will be the sequel to the original TRON that came out in '82. I can't wait to see this, since I've considered the first one a classic of the Sci-Fi genre. I'm sure the 3-D effects (a "must have" nowadays) will totally rock it! No, it will kill it! NO!! IT WILL ANIHILATE ALL!!!!

Oh, and by the way, it seems that Daft Punk will work on the soundtrack!!! All the electro-muzik lovers say "THANK GOD!"

Turn your basement into a nightclub...

I'm actually workin in my basement to create a playroom for me (and maybe the kids)... Darts, Neon lights, Fridge, Custom Light-glowin table with bar stools, etc.
I just found this while wasting time on the internet, looking for inspiration. Too costly for my home... but still pretty dope!

Say what? JERK Muzik??

New vibe from the L.A. area. The sound doesn't sound THAT new, but the look sure is!! Highschool kids with skinny jeans and flashy sneakers, dancin in the middle of the street in packs. The New Boyz are the most recognized kids from this movement at this moment.

NEW Reebok Berlin : The Sequel

You can trust my word.

Came back from work yesterday and a surprise was waiting for me.... What did I say?? "As soon as they come out in red, I'm a buyer"...??? Well....

Red and gold... classic. And you can appreciate the snake-skin texture... nice.

Thank you SMITH...

Rollerblades + Stroller + Liquid tar patch in the street...It's a good thing my shades took the worst of it, cause I'd have a way bigger gash on my eyebrow. On the other hand, it's bad... it was my 2nd pair of Mainline from SMITH Optics and that model is unavailable now (this pair was one of the last 4 ever made). I guess I'll have to buy a new model...

For those who worry about the kids, they're OK. The !B-O-B SUS Duallie is an absolute tank. Mountain bike quality frame, suspension, 5-points harnests. Best buy in a while. Never too much safety for the kids.

"Les cravates par Hermes" Contest

Just found this on Hypebeast

I'm taking a chance on this for sure. Started workin on this 2 days ago (once the kids are in bed, of course!!) and already got 2 good ideas sketched. I know i'm not alone to take a try at it, but I gotta do it. I just love ties too much, and it would be a great way to get known. I'll come back on this later if things go well.

Your attention please!!!

Hemla from Y-3 Fall/Winter 2009

Honestly, when I look at fashion, or even when I create, I don't really get impressed by classic ideas with new colors. What gets my attention is new forms, new shapes, specific details. This shoe is filled with details, from the brown inserts in the sole, to the hidden eyelets on the first part of the upper of the shoe. THAT IS FASHION. Stop reinventing the Stan Smith with new colors/patterns (I know, it's a classic, I own a pair, but you can't reinvent it forever!!)

Bigger than HipHop - Dead Prez (Diplo remix)

Just heard this on Fairtilizer. That led me to a couple of websites about the guy. He's been M.I.A.'s DJ on her 2005 tour. He's the head of Mad Decent Records. He's also involved in Major Lazer with fellow DJ Switch.

Here's an exemple of what they did on the last album....

Gola X Christian Lacroix

You might say i'm late on this... you might have seen these a long time ago... but did you read that great quote from Christian Lacroix talking about his colab with UK's Gola??

"Les baskets sont à l’homme du XXIe siècle ce que le gilet multicolore était au dandy du XIXe, c’est-à-dire un signe distinctif, une signature personnelle."

(For you folks who don't speak French : Sneakers are, to the 21st century man, what multicolored jerseys where to the 19th century dandy; a distinctive sign, a signature.)

quote from

oh, and btw, i personnally own a pair from Gola's previous collection (the Dodge in "pied-de-poule" material/black/red) ... real comfortable, great look, great assembly. Gotta own at least 1 pair in your collection.

Activision's "DJ Hero" to come

Not much info for now. Activision has launched a website for this new game to come, but all it has is a sendlist for future news about the game. we know it will be on Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii. It is said to be develloped by "7Studios", and there are many rumors about names of people featuring in the game : Daft Punk, DJ Shadow, Kanye West, Beastie Boys... nothing confirmed yet.

the image is what the controller (or at least a part of it) should look like.

"LV & Autotune 2", Yeezy's new mixtape

I was lucky enough to get a "byte" of this from Ye's blog (I think the links don't work anymore). I've been listenin to this record every day for the last couple of days. Weezy is also on a couple of these tracks.

I like the cover, with the sneaker evolution...
