Thundercat – ‘Heartbreaks + Setbacks’

17 Apr


It doesn’t get much fresher than this, Thundercat’s ‘Heartbreaks + Setbacks’ was uploaded to Youtube 8 hours ago. It’s the first single of the upcoming album ‘Apocalypse’ and I find the track very easy to listen too. It reminds me of something Bonobo could have created, but is in fact co-produced and co-written by Flying Lotus.

The man behind Thundercat is Stephen Bruner, a great bass player and vocalist who has played with artists like Erykah Badu and Snoop Dogg. The LA based musician has been flying solo since 2011 and quite succesfully.


Exclusive Flyknits

11 Apr


This week Nike will be releasing two limited editions of the Flyknit series and to be honest they look pretty fly. The models that are being released are the Flyknit Racer and the HTM Flyknit Trainer+, the latter being part of a collection that shows some of Nike’s most innovative designs. In looks I would prefer the Racer because of the fresher color pattern of the upper, but since I’m not in fact a racer I’ll exclude myself from the competition.

Unlike Nike’s other Flyknit models, these two are made of multi-colored yarn, which definitely  gives a limited feel to them. The pairs will only be available at Nike Stadium Milano from the 12th of April and at 1948 London from the 13th. Happy hunting.



2 Guns = Marky Mark and Denzel

2 Apr


When I heard Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington were doing a movie called ‘2 Guns’, I have to admit I was already sold. Having seen the trailer, I’m even more psyched about seeing it. In the film Mark and Denzel are teamed up while they are both working undercover without each others knowledge. I don’t have the impression that ‘2 Guns’ has an extremely compelling storyline, however I am convinced that it will be a very entertaining film with a lot of action and a few giggles. Unfortunately it doesn’t come out until August, so enjoy the trailer and be patient people.
