Soulwax Side Project: Forbidden

 

A limited edition vinyl box set has been created by a team made up of Soulwax, UK electrotrash dj Riton, and artist Fergus Purcell (AKA Fergadelic). The side project is called ‘Die Verboten’ and ya kna’, being Swiss and all, I can tell you this means FORBIDDEN. 

The box set is called “Live in Eivissa”  – named after an 18min track recorded in Ibiza on the A-side. On the B-side one can find a unique laser-etched piece of art. Another wacky feature to be noted is a pop-up pyramid, similar to the ones in our little kiddy books, whose configuration is designed to ‘focus the deep cosmic powers of the vinyl housed inside’. Whoa.

Die Verboten

I like this etch, it reminds me a lot of the bright patterned clothing worn in M.I.A.’s Paper Planes vid when she’s dancing down the street wif her entourage. 

Here’s a lil sample of Fergadelic’s past work. Known for his stoner aesthetics, skull pieces, humor, sci-fi, and music related graphics. You be the judge:

 

SPEW - blaahhhhhh

SPEW - blaahhhhhh

Anyway, Die Verboten is due to come out around the end of June. Only 300 copies are being made. Kudos to Mixmag fo the goods. 

HOLLA

Glen Freidman…Fuck You Heroes

Fuck You Heroes

Fuck You Heroes

As a painter and illustrator, it’s sometimes hard for me to grasp photography as an artform.  Glen Freidman’s work helps me understand.  He makes it obvious that photography is about the subject, not how pleasing to the eye it is.  He caught my eye when I saw the photos of the Beastie Boys back when they were a hardcore-punk group.  This guy has some raaaw, rare and original photos of the people I look up to the most.  The ones that made it with their hats turned back and their middle fingers in the air.   Check out his site, and if your inspired enough go buy his book “Fuck You Heores”….its worth it. (click on the book in the site to see some pics)

KAWS x CLIPSE x OTHERS

Just to add onto brenones Clipse drop, the cover art is done by street artist Kaws. I would expect to see more of Clipse in the future, as well as future collabs with Kaws.

Happy 4/20!
