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.
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
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.
Clout x Cope2
Clout teams up with Cope2 to throw down on a dirty tee. I’d buy that shit for sure. Then maybe I would go and start a graf crew, call it dredre2. Does y’all like that? Would you let me get on a tee Clout? I’ve got some sick handstyles.
Available online at some online store, or something. Again props to hypebeast.
As much as I love going to school and studying what I am really passionate about-art & design…theres nothing I hate more than walking into class and seeing kids dressed like they are auditioning for the re-make of A Clockwork Orange, and their reason for dressing and acting so fucking weird is because they are “an artist” and they are “expressing themselves.” Bullshit…heres a real artist with real purpose.

“The WiiSpray Project is essentially a platform developed to create “virtual graffiti” through the use of Wii technology. Originally developed in the Spring of 2007 by students Martin Lihs and Frank Matuse, the WiiSpray has quickly emerged as a legitimate creation allowing one or more people to interact creatively independent of space and time. What makes the WiiSpray even more unique is its ability to create works that could be saved on a server, independent of particular platforms. Further detailed information regarding this innovative project can be found at WiiSpray.com.”
A little bit of the local graf scene being held down by MH and Splef. Here’s a flick that was caught in the summer!
