Another Weekend, Another Continent

Posted on Aug 22nd, 2008 by A-Trak

I don’t even know what time zone I’m in anymore. I just know I have a couple of pictures from last weekend that I wanted to post, so that warrants a blog post. Read More

Win Running Man Sneaks

Posted on Aug 21st, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Right around when A-Trak’s Running Man mix for Nike+ first dropped, he went to the Nike ID studios with our art director Dust La Rock and our pal Kesh to test out some colorways. Now you can put the fruits of their afternoon on your feet by winning these Nike ID dunks! We have 5 pairs to give away, all you have to do is email us your name, shoe size, shipping address (no PO boxes, you gotta be able to sign for these) and phone number, and we’ll choose winners at random next week.

UPDATE: Almost 1,000 entries in a weekend, not too shabby! Congratulations to Erin McCulley of St Petersburg, Keena Carson of Newport News, Ronald Moore Jr of the Bronx, Dean Bryce of London, and Yan Philippe of Montreal!

Trizzy Likes… Nore’s Newport Chain

Posted on Aug 20th, 2008 by A-Trak

NORE’s got a whole myspace gallery dedicated to his Newports-inspired chain.

You really gotta respect the attention to detail. It says Thugged Box instead of Menthol Box. They’re called Noreports. Sounds like The War Report (his first album, duh — or am I reading into it too much?). Oh and the box opens too. God bless America.

A few classics, a few lesser known or under-appreciated gems, and a few great acid tracks that aren’t 10+ years old.” Download it here, check tracklist after the jump, and read their article in the latest issue of the mag (Busy Signal and Tough Alliance on the cover).

Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak: The Lost Flicks

Posted on Aug 18th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Remember the epic Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak North American tour from this past spring? We were armed with one of The Cobra Snake’s extra cameras (I shall call it “The Rattler”) during the whole trip, but after everything wrapped, the pics mysteriously disappeared. Until today! Steve just sent us this link to check the recent vintage tour snaps over at the Snake. As a bonus, check our tour diaries (originally published on thefader.com) after the jump. Read More

Trizzy’s Mindspray: Airplane Food

Posted on Aug 16th, 2008 by A-Trak

I meant to post this 24 hours ago but internet access is like the Holy Grail when you’re on the road.

I landed in London after the classic yet dreaded overnight flight. I had a bad case of the Middle Seat Blues but I did manage to get 2 or 3 hours of sleep in there. As we took off I was starving and really looking forward to my meal. I was in the second-to-last row though so I knew I’d have to twiddle my thumbs for a hot minute. Then the guy on my left got his meal before everyone. He had one of those “special” orders. I was thinking, I’m going to start asking for kosher meals when I book these flights. Most of you know that I’m Jewish, but I eat everything, I don’t really care. However if this will allow me to eat before everyone else, sign me up! Bring on the airplane latkes, baby. Those meals are probably better anyway since they make less of them.
