The Get Down: Part II (Trailer)

April 7th can’t came fast enough.  The trailer starts out like an episode of Inside the Music, following The Get Down Brothers in their transition into the mainstream all while clashing with  disco.  Netflix describes it as:

“A mythic saga of dreams, desire, soul and sound, The Get Down chronicles the epic musical evolution from disco to hip hop that defined 1970s New York City – as told by the relationships, struggles, triumphs, and artistry of the South Bronx teens who saw it through.” 

 Watch the trailer below.

The Air Max 1 Returns!!!

In 1987, the Air Max 1 changed the world of footwear forever. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the icon made the invisible, visible with the arrival of visible Air Max cushioning. Through the years as the debut Air Max captured the hearts of many, the design was upgraded and slightly altered to elevate comfort while meeting the needs of everyday casual wear. As the changes and upgrades continued, Air Max connoisseurs across the globe began to yearn for the “Golden Era” shape and build that took over the late ‘90s and early 2000s.

Take a look and see how the Nike Sportswear design team takes us through the process behind the design of the newly crafted Air Max 1 .  Also one of my favorite shoes I might add.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The PLAYlist “Chasing Goosebumps”

The album was recorded in just 7 days with the entire process documented via Facebook Live.  Some of the world most renowned artists who contributed to the album were The Roots’ James Poyser, TDE’s new artist SiR, Eric Lau Masego, from the group Foreign Exchange Eric Roberson, and of course Dayne Jordan, and many more.

According to DJ Jazzy Jeff:

Chasing Goosebumps exemplifies the sincerity and soul-bearing emotion that only comes from unhindered creativity. Not genre-specific, the album is an eclectic, yet cohesive, mix of soul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, pop and samba. From the melodies to the lyrics, Chasing Goosebumps is moving and provocative, tackling topics like social injustice, relationships, love and the music industry. Vocalist Glenn Lewis serves as the perfect vessel for these stories of frustration, anger, hate, inspiration, love and hope. His distinctly familiar voice navigates the range of topics and music styles with effortless delivery.

Chasing Goosebumps is musically as diverse as the artists who brought it to life, The PLAYlist. More than a supergroup, The PLAYlist is a movement that promotes authenticity in music and empowers artists to remain true to their craft. For The PLAYlist, Chasing Goosebumps is reassurance that real, meaningful music is not a lost art. Chasing Goosebumps is not the end of an era. It’s just the beginning
