“Your flight has been canceled.”

Short and not so sweet. Third time this year.

I was in southern VA. At my high school wingman’s home – he’s a pilot; she’s a former helicopter flyer, a match made in heaven. She was the one who delivered the heart wrenching news as I stepped into a dinner party…

Drafted by a very dear friend. A sentimental piece from the heart. Real people included.

happy v day.

I first met Kevin Dao as he was studying photography in Pittsburgh. Years later, our friendship has remained intact and we both found ourselves in New York. 
Recently, Kevin had me participate in The Wallpaper Portraits. My inclusion is part of a series of 100 shots, all in front of this antiquity looking backdrop. Though the project has been active for the past year, the photographs have nearly all been snapped, and the final product is being assembled.
The most wild of animals come out in this concrete jungle which leaves me in anticipation to see the collection of beasts who shared my same spot in his studio.

How We Can Change the World With Festivals / Gatherings

With some of the most positive, humanistic folk I’ve encountered, why can’t we start a revolution through a beat?

THE HOWLING : SHORTLINE

The Howling is a live show by Australian-born, LA-based singer-songwriter ands guitarist Ry Cuming (Dumont Dumont) and Frank Wiedermann, co-founder of German power-house label Innervisions and half of Ame. The Howling — released on Innervisions in 2012 brought out a new sound for the label. Contrasting from Wiedermann’s German house background and Ry’s commercial success with Jive Records, their project incorporates a softer, acoustic sound.

The duo gained public intrigue when Dixon closed his Boiler Room mix from 2012 with ‘Howling’, sparking the first Innervisions release to deflect from a pure dance sensation, yet stay in line with emotional synth lines, and a spooky-sensual male vocal line.

In this beautiful video shot by LA-based Adarsha Benjamin we see Ry Cuming juxtaposing Nana Agypong in a tension-fueled romance that flashes epileptic waves of color with an ultimate splash of saturation in its finale. It’s only appropriate that the video was shot on 16mm in Topanga Canyon, CA.

Shortline is a three track EP, currently available on vinyl and digital release.

Cultivora | Partying Outside Our Comfort Zone at The BPM Festival 2014

Cultivora’s Founder and Creative Director, Marjana Jaidi gave The BPM Festival a chance by starting her year with the 10 day experience. It  provided a different kind of music indulgence, and a new perspective on how you subscribe to the culture, whether it’s the music itself or the global community that hold it so dearly.

If you resist the need to push yourself, you’ll become stagnant. This article reinforces the fact that sometimes you just gotta step out of your comfort zone to realize how beautiful the world is. And its thanks to the people who dedicate their passions to making it that way.
