Trust me, you will not be disappointed with these prints. This is a new little mix I put together featuring some great electro and a few 80’s throw backs. I really love putting together mixes and seeing how good or bad they become towards the end. So if you are into this type of things, give it a listen. A couple previous mixtapes you can download: All of my mixes can be found here. Recently had the opportunity and privledge to be interviewed with Be Street Magazine out of France.

The bike, which will enjoy its debut during the Tour de France, embodies a theme inspired by Spartacus and the gladiators.

To me it is one of those things that get lost in the shuffle and from various events, they are either in a large box or scattered all over my desk.

I don’t want my card to get shuffled to t he bottom of the pile, but to stay firm on their desk as a reminder that maybe, just maybe, the next project could be mine. Joking of course, but still, just wanted something to stand myself apart from everyone lese doing what I’m doing. I’m planning on running different designs for each season and making it where it’s something that friends and clients get excited about.

Nice to see Burial Black get some props. Iknew a while back that Nike started to use Burial Black, but never would of guessed it would make it on a iconic shoe for one of the best players in the league. Very humbled and excited at the same time. Check out the Kobe VI’s. So, the other night I was watching Adult Swim and a commercial caught my eye.
The new commercial for Street Fighter for the Wii features one of my fonts that I’ve created. False Idols to be exact. I am very flattered to see it get used and not only that, but on a game that I love! Thank you to whoever did this. You made my day! One of the thing I like to do on the side is put together mixes with tracks I currently enjoy. It’s mostly for my own listening pleasure, but also enjoy sharing them, even if they are pretty horrid.
