DJ AM Anniversary

It's truly hard to believe it's been a year since DJ AM passed. He's still very much alive in alot of hearts, though. He still pops up on our suggested follows on twitter. We know you're rocking a club in heaven right now. Rest In Peace, Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein.

Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Recap

Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Recap

I realize this is a little out of the norm for our blog. Let me preface it by saying Ian Walsh is an amazingly talented, local bred surfer. He and I were great friends when we were little, and he was just starting to pick up sponsors. He's now gotten to the point where he hosts is own contest for kids. He's a local surf success story. And I'm glad to say he's as nice of a guy now as he was in the 6th grade. Also, big ups to The Throwdowns, a local band doing big things, for the background music.

Chromeo Can Do (Well) With Daryl Hall

Apparently Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates, for the whipper snappers) had a web show called Live From Daryl's House. Apparently he once had Chromeo as a guest. Check them out discussing how "No Can Do" was first recorded. If you don't really care, and would rather just see the (ill) performance, skip to the 3:46 mark.

Go Topless Day

Boy, how time flies! Hard to believe Go Topless Day (August 23rd)is just days away. Who, might you ask, is to thank for this holiday? The Raeliens, of course. Raëlism is like Scientology, except crazy(ier?. To each their own. BOOBS FOR EVERYONE!

Fat Beats Closes

Photo by SteelBorn
The news of Fat Beats closing hits pretty close to home. We are record store employees and junkies. We love this life. Slightly unnerving to see that big of a company fold its locations. I'll never forget my first trip to Fat Beats NY. I was intimidated and overwhelmed. I copped a Beasties' LP.
Fat Beats, you will be missed.

Los Angeles Times: Fat Beats to close its remaining Los Angeles and New York locations
For hip-hop heads of legal drinking age, the name Fat Beats inevitably conjures memories of teenage years spent trawling through racks of vinyl, in-store appearances with the latest underground stars (during a period when "underground" didn't require scare quotes) and encyclopedic employees often pulled from the top ranks of the Los Angeles DJ scene.

And now, the iconic hip-hop retailer will close its last two remaining brick-and-mortar locations in New York and Los Angeles -- another apparent casualty to ever-dwindling record sales and interest in vinyl among hip-hop consumers. The closures reflect the final act of contraction for a chain that had previous shuttered its locations in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Tokyo.

Maluca - China Food Mixtape FREE

"Continuing with our weekly mixtape giveaways we present you with Maluca - "China Food", mixed by me. This is the brain child of Maluca for us to create a biographical trilogy (Past, Present and Future), if you will, of her musical influences and own music. First starting with where Maluca is coming from, early influences ( Playero Music ) and early songs (Big Bad Bangs), next, we move on to where she's at, current influences ( Mambo de Calle, Gaga Music ), current songs ( Jungle Violento, Flourescent Beige ) and finally where she's going influences ( Dutch House, Vogue/Ballroom House ), songs ( Loca, Hector ). With original production from amazing producers Oliver Twizt, Mumdance, Ruckazoid, Kevin Seaton, Marcus Price and one wack one, Me. I'm pretty positive what you're about to hear, new song or old will be 99percent new to your ears. So where Maluca goes from here I don't know, but what i do know is that shes so talented, beautiful and crazy that I'll be watching and listening closely the whole way."

Mos Def Live In Maui

Last Saturday Mos Def played a show in Maui, at the Maui Theatre. My very good friend, Lia Krieg (@SocialLia) brought me in as the theater's photographer for the night (I love you for that, Lia!). Aside from one lens failing on me, the night was amazing.

Wailuku Heights Blaze

Friday moring, at midnight, two of the Bahay Boys' bahays came a block away from being lost forever in a blaze. The fire engulfed a field in Maui's Wailuku Heights area. Although no house were lost, the fire came within 50 feet of some homes.

My Visit To Work In(g) Studio

My brand new camera, a Canon T2i, shoots video. I took my first crack at shooting and editing a film while at the Paia Tattoo Parlor for Paul Mullowney's Work In(g) Studio project. I'll repeat- This was my first attempt at video, so please forgive the flaws.
If slow and steady is more your thing view my photoset instead.
