Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Music Video | Dizzy Rascal – Couple of Stacks

posted by on 16/02/2015

This week Dizzee Rascal dropped what is easily my favourite music video of the year so far to accompany Couple of Stacks, a track which featured on the Pagans EP released back in December. The video is a comical gorefest and not for the squeamish type, it’s wonderful to see such a creative video come out of the UK rap scene. Dizzee seems to have abandoned the toned down style that brought him pop fame, his delivery and flow in particular feel far more like they did ten years ago. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll see another classic like Boy In Da Corner released in the future. Video after the cut.

I Love Ugly | Spring 2015

posted by on 15/02/2015

I Love Ugly continue to impress with their latest drop of relaxed but technical and sophisticated apparel, as they put it, “good design needs room to breath.” The seem to have mastered the art of making garments that make a statement while remaining minimalist, and unlike some brands, they know how to shoot their stuff. I’ll definitely be making a purchase or two from this collection, check it out after the cut.

I know, we’re not even out of this winter yet and I’m sure your don’t want to be thinking about the next. But on the plus side, it looks like Michael Kors will be dropping an amazing Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection in a pretty monochrome colour palette, just how a like it. The collection is clearly military inspired, as well as taking influence from the sports luxe trend and being a little preppy. Now I just need to find some spare cash… Check it out, after the cut.

Love is a Drug

posted by on 13/02/2015

So it’s Valentines Day tomorrow and we’ve got the perfect video. Not something you’d usually expect to hear from us at Yin&Yang but this is Shots of Awe and I’ll never get tired of Shots of Awe. Every video inspires thought and Jason Silva is just a captivating speaker. I want to let the video do the talking, it can’t and shouldn’t be described, just watch! After the cut.

Hearing Tarantino

posted by on 12/02/2015

The other day we posted an awesome video breaking down the quadrant system used in Drive, this one’s a little more fun. Filmmaker Jacob Swinney has put together a series of clips from some of Quentin Tarantino‘s illustrious films to highlight the importance and effectiveness of sounds. We rarely take conscious take of every sound we hear when watching a movie, rather they slip into our unconscious and enhance our movie watching experience without us even knowing. However when these sounds are alienated from a scene they really come alive individually. Check it out after the cut!

It’s about time I got some new New Balance‘s, the only pair I own are a size too small.

Levi’s Line 8 | Shoreditch Pop-Up Store

posted by on 11/02/2015

Iconic denim brand Levi’s is celebrating the launch of it’s new Line 8 Spring/Summer 2015 collection by opening a pop-up on Charlotte Road in Shoreditch, the store sits rather close to another couple of notable denim makers and will be located there for five months. The pieces are wonderfully minimalist and, as expected from such veterans in the denim game, high quality (I’m sure they won’t tear at the crotch like my Cheap Monday’s recently did). Nip down and invest in something that’ll last you for years, you won’t regret it!

February Fog

posted by on 11/02/2015

A beautiful little piece of film by filmmaker Billy Perry as he shares some stunning woodland visuals shot during the cold and foggy month of February. I originally followed this fellow a good few years ago for his Call of Duty videos (when that was a thing) but he’s moved onto better and far more creative projects that are always a wonder to watch. The atmosphere in this piece is fantastical but eerie all at the same time, check it out after the cut.

Music Video | Frett – Silent Alarm

posted by on 10/02/2015

To be honest, I wasn’t aware of Frett until seeing this video, I’m just not that hip. However they give me a bit of a Warpaint vibe and I love Warpaint. The video screams with emotion and transitions between a variety of contrasting scenes, I’m yet to get my head around it completely but it definitely caught my attention. With that said, I’ll let you make your own mind up after the cut!
