This is one piece of cool technology! Nashville based company Artiphon have been hard at work crafting a device that incorporates the sounds of numerous instruments and enables users to make music using a singular piece of equipment.

posted by on 09/03/2015

The sound track for today comes courtesy of Raheem Bakaré and his sexy single Purple Sky. This track is taken from his debut EP entitled AWOL. I would suggest getting the EP because this guy is seriously talented and his vocals are on point. In the past i’ve put you on to his cover of Sam Smith‘s ‘Stay With Me’ (see here) but it’s nice to share some of his own music with you once again. Enjoy!

Adventure | Chris Burkard

posted by on 09/03/2015

If you hadn’t already noticed, we love to travel and photograph our adventures. So we appreciate others who do the same, particularly when they’re as good at it as Chris Burkard. Every shot of his is stunning and awe inspiring, scenes leave you breathless despite the fact that you’re only looking at them on a screen. I may have settled in London for now but I’m not sure how long it will be before adventure calls once again. Be inspired after the cut!

posted by on 08/03/2015

We love to showcase art and photography that’s fun, we showed you some fun photo manipulation earlier this week with Flying Houses. It’s nice to be reminded that art can be serious, moody and contain a deep philosophical or political message, but it doesn’t have to be. Victor Nunes has created some some very simple illustrations which he brings to three-dimensional life using everyday objects. Check out the project after the cut.

Today I thought i’d shared something a little different with you all. I woke up, checked my emails and saw that i had been sent a link. I clicked the link which took me to YouTube, the video was of a young lady singing a cover version of Sigma feat Labrinth – Higher.

Read on to here the delicious tones of Kyra as she puts her own spin on the song.
