Earlier in 2013 Emil Hvilsom and his crew of independent film dogs released Vores KBH, a skateboard film based here in Copenhagen on local riders featuring short parts in London, Majorca, Abu Dhabi and Malmö, Sweden.
6 months later Streetmachine, who financed the film, are releasing a series of parts from the original edit ‘remixed’ by guest editors. First up is the Abu Dhabi part edited by Kim Batiste, who was on most of the trips himself, nailed a solid part and proved quite the handy man behind the camera.

R. Kelly – Black Panties album out worldwide now.
The Godmacker of all Macks officially released “Black Panties” on December 6 stateside. Fortunately it was released worldwide today, in order to quench the thirst of Kellz fans worldwide, hungering for that syrupy love juice nobody else than Kelly can deliver.
It’s a modern and yet classical tour de force in R. Kelly’s unmistakable take on R’n'B, which is simply designated purely for babymaking purposes. I’ll let the music speak for itself but check the last verse of “Shut Up” and you’ll know exactly what I mean: Read more →

Last week we were lucky enough to catch Quadron play an incredible show at DR’s Koncerthuset.

(who I actually don’t know through his music, but he would walk into the kitchen and make his own food at the first cafe I worked at in Copenhagen: “Who are you?” “I’m Lars” “Ok.”), Coco wowed the full house with her tantalising vocals and moves, not to mention her girly giggles in between songs “This is awesome!” And it was.

E-40 aka Charlie Hustle, E Fonzarelli, 40 Water or simply Earl Stevens, is so much on top of his game at the age of 46.
With a 25 year strong career he has worked with pretty much anyone in the business and in the process, he has continuously evolved as a performing artist. Let’s not forget about his entrepreneurship which as of late has resulted in his own line of wines. All of these things leaves us with hard and proven facts that constantly keeps you wondering to which level E-40 will raise the bar next. Read more →

Two weeks ago, Streetmachine announced their second colab (the first being in 2009) with skateboard giants, Chococlate. Word on the street is that today the second part of the partnership is revealed with a throwback theme to a couple of the earlier Streetmachine shops. The City Series takes inspiration from the 1998 ‘Skyline Series’ of boards featuring PAris, San Diego and Copenhagen, the three cities where Streetmachine had stores. Today, Copenhagen remains and dominates, as is shown in this awesome capsule.

Ok, granted these are pretty old but we figured that if we haven’t seen them than there’s a possibility there’s a few others who haven’t. Who knows?
Liu Xue is a Chinese sculptor whose Wiki I couldn’t find. Maybe he doesn’t have one because it’s illegal to be a critical artist in China. Again, who knows. Maybe he does have one and my google skills suck nuts. Eitherway, check these fascinating sculptures and and try to work out which one you would most like to be turned into if you got cursed by a witch.
