Jay Dee / 40-Piece Orchestra

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).

There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!

Hypebeast Essentials / Vancouver!

Hypebeast recently asked me to list five things I can’t live without as part of their Essentials series. The four of us who were asked are all currently involved in Vancouver’s street fashion scene. That’s me on the bottom left. To my right is Kenta, the creative genius behind Brknhome, and above me are my friends Matt and Vince (Finale Design).
