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 […]

JME | 48 Hour Mixtape

posted by on 14/07/2015

JME. A grime legend that has stayed true to the grime community, and flown the flag for Boy Better Know (BBK) for quite some time now. His Twitter feed is brilliant. His work rate is even better. Noisey, in collaboration with Pepsi Max, noticed this and brought JME in to kickstart their 3 part series ‘48 Hour Mixtape‘ Self explanatory, the aim is for the artist in question to work around their city to make a mixtape in 48 hours. Pretty awesome stuff if you ask me, and JME executes his mixtape brilliantly, even bringing in some other local artists to help out. Check the video and mixtape after the cut.

The Ultimate Travel Essentials | MUJI to Go

posted by on 14/07/2015

MUJI has a ridiculous power over me. In fact, I know plenty of other people who suffer the same fate as me when approaching a MUJI store on your strolls. The fate that you will end up inside that store. Through no choice of your own, you just find yourself wandering inside and buying yourself some pens, a notepad and a small travel bag you’ll likely never use. Saying that, the reason why I can’t resist going inside is because their stuff is amazing. Minimal branding, clean design and super functional. They’ve recently released a whole new batch of travel essentials, showcased in a brilliant short film showing off the items from packing to final destination and how best to use them on your travels. Watch it after the jump.

New Balance Football | Visaro and Furon Boots

posted by on 14/07/2015

You may not typically associate New Balance with football, but the US footwear manufacturer has been in the sport for a while. In fact, Bryan Robson wore a pair back in the mid-eighties! Struggling to compete with the bigger players in the market, it never quite took off. Nevertheless, the brand has made another entry with their latest Visaro and Furon boots launched by brand ambassador Aaron Ramsey in London last week. The lightweight boots are made for attack-minded players, but differentiated based on style of play. The Visaro boot is made for players who ‘make chances’ (midfielders), with the Furon made for players who ‘take chances’ (attackers). An interesting angle to differ your product range. I got my hands on a pair, and they are made incredibly well. Super light, but with a stable build. If you’re after a new pair of boots and want to try something new, see more on the boots after the cut.

Chaz Bundick (Toro y Moi) | Sketch to Screen

posted by on 23/06/2015

There’s not much Chaz Bundick can’t do. An inspiration to many out there, the singer (better known as Toro y Moi), producer, illustrator, designer and entrepreneur is just too-cool-for-school. This time around, he collaborates with LA-based platform Yours Truly to create this awesome little short film about how his graphics and illustration meets with his music. His quirkiness shines through, as he showcases his cool sketches and prints them on to t-shirts. I mean, if anything, it’s inspired me to do the same and avoid the bullsh*t prices we have to put up with from brands these days. But hey, that’s another conversation to be had. In the meantime, check this great little video after the cut and wish how you were Chaz’s friend.

posted by on 12/06/2015

Basketball is a global sport. Long gone are the days of the sport having a sole presence in the US. Not only are there a growing number of international players in the NBA, but there are also plenty of global basketball events. If you know anything about basketball, you should be familiar with Quai 54 – a streetball tournament held in Paris where players from all around the world come to win. Today marks the start of the 3-day tournament situated in the picturesque Place de la Concorde, right in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower. I’ll be there to shoot the event and hopefully play a little too! So keep an eye out on our social channels and for a full feature soon. To celebrate this years event, along with the 30th birthday of Jordan brand, Nike and Jordan have released some Europe exclusive kicks. Can’t say I’m a fan of any of them to be honest, but they may tickle the fancy of some people. Check out more on Q54 after the cut, and some info on these new drops.

Open Air | Rare Images of Michael Jordan

posted by on 11/06/2015

Jordan brand turns 30. A hugely successful basketball apparel brand, the clothing was designed, owned and produced for Michael Jordan – arguably one of the greatest sportsman to ever live. In celebration of this, and my love for the sport in general, we’re going to be all basketball these next two days. To kick us off, I’m sharing an awesome collection of images I came across recently on The Players’ Tribune (a fantastic sports blog written by those involved the most – players, coaches, everything). The images are on display in Chicago, and were taken by photographer Walter Iooss Jr. Walter says it was impossible to take a bad picture of Michael Jordan, and these images are a gift to the city of Chicago, much like Michael was all them years ago. Click through to see some of these stunning shots.
