Dan Black – HYPNTZ

August 31st, 2008 by Larry

Chris Black put me onto this one a few weeks ago. This cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s Hypnotize by unsigned musician, Dan Black, is one of the most unique track I’ve heard in a while. It also sounds great in the car.

Young Jeezy – I Put On (Remix) (Ft. Jay-Z)

August 27th, 2008 by Larry

If you didn’t know already, Young Jeezy will remind you that his new album, The Recession, is coming out on September 2nd, despite the fact that he’s still taking photos for the album’s liner notes as we speak. That doesn’t leave much time for his label to print and package the album before it comes out. Production people LOVE that!

The best part about this remix is hearing Jay-Z make fun of the T-Pain voice during his cameo, which is also where Kanye’s spot used to be. There are a few other remixes of the track including Kanye’s part, but this is the official version that’s been causing a stir on the airwaves in ATL. Maybe we’ll hear it while we’re out tonight. It’s gonna be crazy!

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep?
WOW!!! Thats a great question! Hmmmm If I could only keep one pair, I would stick with the Nike Air Trainers in Knicks Colors. A) Nike Air Trainers are the most Comfortable shoes EVER, at least in my opinion. B) Orange and Blue are my favorite colors just check my Blog to see for yourself.

What’s on your iPod right now?
Creative Control Radio Show. It’s the radio show that I co-host along with Dj Grandman. Grand always comes with the exclusives. With both our music industry connects, we get a lot of exclusives from Hip Hop artists.

Right now I’m listening to: The AOK Crew from New York: Homebody Sandman, Fresh Daily, P Casso, as well as J Live, Estelle, Ice Cube, Killer Mike, Gnarls Barkley, Tanya Morgan, and Janelle Monae.

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
Hmmmmm no Diss, but ATL doesn’t really have food that you can call ATL’s! Does It? A lot of people say Soul Food, but you can get Soul Food anywhere. And I’ve actually had the BEST Soul Food up north, not down south.

The Pizza sucks in ATL, and I don’t eat Beef or Pork, so RIBS aren’t really my thing. My favorite type of food is Pasta and I when I want a cheap pasta dish I hit up Little Azio. You def get your moneys worth, and the atmosphere is real clean.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
Back in the day when I first got here it was Lenox Mall – thats where all the girls from Spelman would be hanging out. And you would always see the rappers there (which meant MORE girls were around). I saw Naughty By Nature, Redman, Wu Tang, Jay Z, Nas, Shaq, Outkast, Jermaine Durpi, ETC. But Lenox fell off yeeears ago.

I would say now, nowhere in particular. I don’t hang out as much (don’t really have the time too). Some of the night spots I frequent are MJQ | Django | Apache Cafe | and Cenci.

What are your Pet Peeves?
People calling me always trying to get something, or trying to get in somewhere for free. These same people are NEVER around when you need something. Also hate people who get caught up in the Hype. Like if your walking around with a pair of Questlove Air Force Ones on, I need you to know who Questlove is, at least what group he’s apart of.

Shout outs?
Big Shouts to the brothas who help me run my compnay and Blog. My Brand Manager Chicagorilla | Director of New Media Inori | and my Field Manager OZ B. I couldn’t do anything without these brothas being on point. My DJ, Grandman and music manager Mark Madison. Also shouts out too the other Blogs I check like Frolab, Street Local, Lavish Life, Frank 151, Konsole Kingz, and Binkis’ Blog.

Keep It Real, Will!

August 26th, 2008 by Larry

A good friend of our studio, Will Aquino, is leaving Atlanta for the coasts of Argentina this week. When I first met Will, he was the new kid at Standard. After a brief initiation, he quickly learned to trash-talk with the best of ‘em, such as Decatur “The Hater” Dan. Will has since moved on to managing the Y-3 store in Atlanta, but has decided to follow a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to start over fresh and to take advantage of a few opportunities that await him in South America. He plans to be able to speak Spanish fluently before he comes back in a year (doubt it) and to hunt down some spots where PROCESS can thrive. Will, I think you’ll do just fine. So long for now…

M83 – Kim & Jessie (Montag Remix)

August 25th, 2008 by Larry

Saturdays = Youth has been one of my favorite albums this year, yet I’ve really been longing to hear a crunk remix of this particular song… but no one will take my idea seriously! The Montag Remix of Kim & Jessie by M83 is probably the best remix we’re going to get for now. It’s actually very headphone-friendly but don’t expect it to be your soundtrack to trashing the ladies bathroom at El Bar.

Can we take a minute to discuss the art direction on this entire campaign? Not only is the photography great but it totally fits in perfectly with the music. I can’t remember the last time I felt so strongly towards the similarities between album art and music. And the typography (titling) makes me happy because they worked with one of my favorite font families, Hoefler Text. Mad respect…

The Virgins – Rich Girls (Daytrotter Session)

August 24th, 2008 by Larry

The Virgins‘ EP (aNYthing records) has been tasting the floorboards of Ross’ car for as long as I can remember. Despite the fact that his ride has been broken into more times than the Falcons have changed QB’s in the last year, it’s like the Atlanta hobos aren’t interested in indie rock. It’s probably because they want to leave the dancing to NYC fashion disasters, or maybe it’s because you can’t go anywhere without hearing this song right now. Here’s a version of their single, Rich Girls, they recorded for a recent daytrotter.com session.

The Streets – Everything Is Borrowed

August 24th, 2008 by Larry

The Streets (aka Mike Skinner) is constantly on rotation in our studio, whether it be CDs, MP3s, or even vinyl. We’re anxiously awaiting the new album, Everything is Borrowed, slated for release in September of this year. Luckily, we were able to get our hands on the new title track which is not only catchy, but surprisingly positive. This one’s going to be added to the morning routine for sure.

21 Mercer: Nike Sportswear Bespoke

August 24th, 2008 by Larry

You can only do this one place in the world, and I can’t wait to return to 21 Mercer Street in New York with the EC crew so we can participate. Nike Sportswear Bespoke is a new and innovative appointment-based design experience that gives you the opportunity to work one-on-one with Nike Designers to flex your creative muscle and customize a pair of one-of-a-kind sneakers.

I know that you’re thinking this is the same as Nike iD, but it is actually much different. For example, Georgios and I had the opportunity to customize some Dunks at the Nike iD Studio at 255 Elizabeth in NYC last year and we found a set color palette and predetermined material choices. However, during your appointment at Nike Sportswear Bespoke, you’ll be able to choose everything from the the color of your outsole and laces, make color-blocking distinctions on different areas of your sneakers, and choose from an extremely large database of materials.

Reach out to the guys and gals at 21 Mercer and get yourself an appointment to customize a pair of Air Force 1‘s. Who knows what’ll be next on the list? I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Air Max 1 but more than likely it’ll be another one of the icons, the Dunk.

Check out examples of the endless possibilities after the jump.
