DEMO REEL

From flying miles above ground amongst lightning storms to diving beneath the surface of Hawaiin waters, our reel is a glimpse into our escapades, catalog & perception. Special thanks to the friends and collaborators that made most of these moments happen.

BURTON US OPEN 2018

Last week I had the privilege to mob out to Vail, Colorado with the wizard of G Pen to experience the Burton US Open. Since Burton was the first snowboard I rode and owned, this was a milestone on multiple levels. Revered by riders and fans all around the globe, the happening showcases some of…

T.F. – ErThangSkanless Premiere

T.F. – ErThangSkanless Premiere

This weekend T.F. & the homies celebrated the release of his debut LP ErThangSkanless. SoundBite Studios hosted the release party. Although that term isn’t inaccurate for the function, the art exhibit & VR music video experience prevented this from being the typical run-of-the-mill occasion. Felt like walking into a crime scene of a homicide & narcotics bust with…

Derek Pope | We’re All Strangers

Derek Pope | We’re All Strangers

Derek Pope has been a friend and collaborator since his days Upstairs. From voyaging around NYC to exploring the back hills of the Santa Monica Mountains, our captures span coast to coast. With his new music on the horizon, we watched the sunrise and shot some press stills. His latest release We’re All Strangers debuted last week…

MUJA MESSIAH & ROC MARCIANO | YOU HAVEN’T LIVED

MUJA MESSIAH & ROC MARCIANO | YOU HAVEN’T LIVED

What stemmed from an ultra lit post Soundset party with Villa Rosa in 2014, evolved into a project and concert with Minnesota’s finest, Muja Messiah and NYC’s own Roc Marciano.  Since drastic escapades tend to happen on short notice, I flew back just days before the preliminary recording sessions to document the lead single of…

STASH X G PEN | LOS ANGELES

STASH X G PEN | LOS ANGELES

It’s not everyday we get to collaborate with an art maestro that specializes in paint, let alone an artist that has been a staple in NYC’s art advancement since the early 80’s and hung canvases next to Jean-Michel Basquiat & Keith Haring. Fortunately G Pen continues stacking their unparalleled catalog of dope creations with some of the…

GOLDEN STATE OF MIND

GOLDEN STATE OF MIND

The year of the Rooster has beckoned many jubilant blessings, but celebrating my gallery debut has to be the crowning moment. The last weekend of May marked the gallery launch of December 9th at Organic Modernism.  Curator Molly Waseka transformed the space from a high end furniture store to a charming art gallery, showcasing the expressive imagery of a handful of LA artists. …

Lords of Leimert Park | NoCanDo & Myka 9

Lords of Leimert Park | NoCanDo & Myka 9

When I first moved to Los Angeles in August ’07, I was lucky enough (really fuckin’ lucky) to be brought in by two of the most talented, hilarious, astute bruhs the city had to offer – Alpha MC and VerBS. Outside of lacing the homies with crisp fits from their gig at American Apparel, hosting the westside’s most…

DRASTIC ESCAPADES: AMSTERDAM

DRASTIC ESCAPADES: AMSTERDAM

The Hippies, Cameron (their primo) and I just finished the spring USA tour and decided to hit Amsterdam for vacation.  We deserved it right? Jeff calls me Wednesday afternoon (day before we’re suppose to leave), to let me know that he just bought tickets and our flight departs LAX in 2 hours!  I happen to be in Culver City…

Pizzanista! x G Pen

Pizzanista! x G Pen

To say 2017 has been a year of milestones, would be hella accurate.  But before I write a dissertation about my roots in skateboarding (leading me to pick up a video camera), how cool Salman Aaah is and how fucking rad documenting this collaboration has been, Ima let you find out for yourself with the video below. Special thanks…

Cassidy Howell LP

Cassidy Howell LP

We’re pleased to have collaborated on another album cover for someone who has been a Drastic ambassador before we even amalgamated.  One of our favorite musicians & artists, Cassidy Howell, who’s known round these parts as Steezlawd. Executively produced by Chase Moore & Sahtyre, Cassidy Howell is Saht’s third “official” LP. Other than a couple tracks produced by Derek Pope and the Steezlawd…
