Don Diablo's New Mashup: Phoenix vs. Jay-Z - 99 Fences

don_diablo_you_will_never_leave_this_place

New Phoenix tracks seem to be popping up left and right these days, which makes sense because their new remix album is slated for release this Tuesday. Phoenix is seriously having a hell of a year.

Anyway, this new mash-up by Dutch producer Don Diablo, will not be featured on the official remix album. It should be though, because it’s just as good (if not better) than some of the other Phoenix remixes. On it, Diablo mashes up the King of New York‘s classic “99 Problems” with the French rock foursome’s smash hit “Fences.” Listen and download below.

New Sketches by RVCA/Facebook Artist David Choe

It’s been quite a while since there’s been some art featured on here, so I figured it’s time for a change. I just stumbled across a couple of sketches by David Choe, a pretty accomplished artist/muralist who has done pieces for retailers like UPPERPLAYGROUND and brands like RVCA. Oh, and he was also the guy that was hired by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to paint the walls of their Palo Alto headquarters. Pretty awesome.

These particular mesmerizing sketches were inspired by three different women on the New York subway.

Choe has a very distinct style of drawing that tends to differentiate his works from others. Take a look at some of his other pieces and you’ll see what I mean:

DJ Clark Kent "Blacks Out" with the Release of New Sneaker and Mixtape


Leaders of the Boston-area sneaker elite, Concepts, teamed up with Nike Sportswear and DJ Clark Kent, to serve a more than generous offering for the sole that is guaranteed to give sneaker heads something to be thankful for well after the holidays have ended.

The Black Friday Nike Air Force 1, personally designed by sneaker enthusiast DJ Clark Kent (not to be confused with a “collector”), has redefined and reintroduced the term “classic” in relation to this popular Nike style. The shoe is, as Clark Kent described at today’s Concepts drop, “a fly luxury shoe without the luxury price tag”. The sneaker’s details include black pony hair, lenticular material, black patent leather, and a rainbow candy sparkle sole. We’re willing to bet that Clark’s impressive 1,800 pairs of Air Force 1’s, which are part of his massive 2,200+ sneaker arsenal didn’t hurt the chances of his design making it into production.

Philippe Petit and the Post Modern Crime Caper: A Review of Man on Wire

In passing, I had heard of the man who had walked across the Twin Towers on a tightrope. I racked it in my brain along with equally bizarre feats: the guy who crashed down Niagara Falls in a barrel, Evil Knievel jumping sixteen cars on his motorcycle, David Blaine being David Blaine—they’re all there together. I already knew the outcome; he made it across. It’s interesting and all, but I was skeptical of Man On Wire, a feature length documentary that focuses entirely on a single fleeting moment. Does the tightrope walker, Philippe Petit have a drug addiction and in his recovery realizes that he must fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a circus performer? Is he doing this as a means for funding an expensive surgery for his terminally ill child? Is it an extreme method for conquering his fear of heights? How is filmmaker James Marsh possibly going to engage me with ninety-four minutes of tightrope walking, and what melodramatic background story was he going to try and scam me with?
