NIKE AIR VAPOURMAX

nike_vapormax_for_comme_des_garcons_7_native_1600

Featured in WIW191016, the Nike Air Vapourmax is set for release with new photos of a flyknit model emerging. Featuring a brand new midsole and sole, the Vapourmax is something different to hit the market and personally I can see these dominating street snaps once they release. I will be trying to pick up the Black CDG collab when they release, but with alot of talk about they may be harder to pick up then expected. Release date is below, will update with prices and stockists.

Release Date : 160317

Reebok X Atmos Instapump Fury (Triple White)

Reebok X Atmos Instapump Fury (Triple White)

This has easily become my most wanted silhouette without actually owning a pair, either the time, price or selling out has stopped me in the past however, even if I need to cop for resale, these have to be my summer trainers. 
Been an Atmos Collaboration you know the cotton used will be premium and soft, the shades of slightly pure and off white’s is a perfect contrast. It is very similar to the last link between Reebok and Atmos for the Instapump Fury, but this triple white affair is somewhat a piece of art.
Release starts today, so keep an eye out on local stockists.

SomethingSomething’s Top 10 Grime Radio Shows

Dizzee Rascal with Wiley in Bethnal Green, London, August 2002

In the past 6 months, Grime has seen a resurgence with old and new heads creating new content that is going down a storm. For me its not all gravy and with the risk of sounding like a purist, you can’t beat the old pre 2006 stuff, which is almost 10 years ago now.
So why do I have a problem with the new stuff you ask? It’s not so much the content but how its been perceived, from Facebook groups and dance’s i’ve seen a rise in the 16+ year old middle class thinking they are ‘road’ because they shouted ‘SHUTDOWN’ at Skepta’s recent publicity stunt in Shoreditch. Now as much as it may seem I’m slewing the fans here, although i think they are part to blame, I feel the grime now is so much watered down in terms of what used to happen, the radio shows, dances, the sheer rawness and how bad/simple some of the production was.
Now I know you’re shouting “duh, it’s progression’, but I think thats the problem, did grime ever need to progress? did it need to resurge? Granted my opinion is very bias, as I’ve already stated I prefer the old stuff, however before i start my countdown I won’t take away from those providing the same energy such as The Box lot and even Skepta.
These are in no particularly order, except number 1…Countdown after the jump.

Red Bull Studios Paris Session : Pépé Bradock

Red Bull Studios Paris Session : Pepe Bradock

A real treat from the team over at Red Bull and Pépé Bradock, as it stands Pépé is easily in my top 3 house producers, and for good reason. Anytime the sun is out or you’re just in the mood to groove to yourself, his music is always perfect for the occasion and this free EP is no different. I’m sure it will be in full rotation if the weather stops as it was today (Sunny for those not in LDN).

Supreme X Larry Clark ‘Kids 20th Anniversary’

Supreme X Larry Clark 'Kids 20th Anniversary'

As ‘Kids’ reaches a milestone, Supreme is set to drop a collaboration which was teased in the SS15 lookbook. According to Larry Clark in a small interview about the film, the Supreme store was instrumental in getting most of the actors together and for the eagle eyed you can spot one of the first ‘Box Logo’s’ made in the fight scene.
The collection consists of 3 decks, 2 picture t-shirts, 1 picture long sleeve and a picture hoody. Ranging in colours give you a couple of options to weigh out, but for me I want to be picking up the ‘Blunt Deck’ and the ‘Blunt L/S’, not only are they my favourite items, but also my favourite scene in the film aswell, which makes this an easy cop.
Release is this Thursday, and will most likely sell out within a couple of minutes, so peep the collection below and see what you want before the drop.

Diz & Young Philip – BUKKAKE EP

Diz & Young Philip - BUKKAKE EP

I first posted a couple of months ago about the mysterious Japanese artist which I was feeling, it was caught up in-between the mist of ‘It G ma’ and had lo-fi styles that are comparable to Lil B and Yung Lean.
After communicating the best I could on Twitter (Thanks Google Translate) I told him to hit me up when the new stuff dropped, and long behold, 2 months later, the inboxes dinged with new material I dare say even rawer then the first EP.
The production is some vague trap, grime, hip-hop descendent which works perfectly with the grainy vocals and the rapping style, again I can’t understand the lyrics but I feel the voices them self act as instruments and I don’t think its essential for me to understand the lyrics, maybe one day ill learn Japanese…
On the tracks also features Young Philip, before this I’d never heard of him but after a bit of searching found his soundcloud and recommend listening threw the material thats on there, he could hit me up if he reads this. Other then that you can grab the EP entitled BUKKAKE below for free.
