    wow… lately i’ve been thinking a lot about the digital life we’re getting into… i work all day long on the computer and when i get home i usually keep surfing the internet… looking for images, videos and music..

    for the last couple of months i have been painting with difrent stuff, wrigting.. even skating (and getting hurt doing so).. but still i can´t let go the feeling that most of the time we take for granted that our lives are….digital

    gives me an odd feeling… (don’t know if i get myself clear)

      ya, there are a lot of interesting things that are happening to the population as a whole (i would imagine) because of the big shift to digital things. The whole move is interesting. I think patience and gratitude have gotten cluttered. it is tricky to try and explain, but I at least agree with you there.

      I wonder how long people will hold on to these processes, and other physical mediums, like vinyl and film. I imagine, and I hoooope, that they’ll continue indefinitely. Any thoughts from people who are more educated than me?

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
