Death Has No Dominion is the name of an unlikely musical partnership between Spleen United’s Bjarke Niemann and fashion brand Libertine Libertine’s founder Rasmus Bak. With their first single Harvest being warmly received across internet waves, the duo had already created a loyal following before the first album even dropped. Listening to it now, I’m soothed to the core of my soul by simple ukelele strums and a persistent, carefree vocal harmony. Read more →
Together with Ford and Very, we’ve produce this short movie about rising Danish surf brand, Oh Dawn. Coming face to face with the everyday challenges that confront any entrepreneurial enterprise, Oh Dawn decided to make it even harder for themselves by starting a surf brand in an otherwise cold and often waveless country.

Aaron Schwartz headed out from Laax to Greenfield Festival in beautiful Interlaken, Switzerland to catch Chuck Ragan and the Camaraderie who played alongside the likes of Iron Maiden and Soundgarden. I’ve always been a huge fan of Chuck and especially his stuff with Hot Water Music, so was excited to hear Aaron got to hang with the band and bring it to a real level. Catch his story below.

Well, this one makes me homesick. Nothing better than hooning on the beach (while you’re doing a fashion shoot). Those sand dunes are in bad shape though: high profile, the wind gets at them and digs them out. It’s the exotic (imported) plants that do it. Not good at all, get some spinafex in there. I know about these things.Anyway, this one was filmed ‘up north eh’ near Auckland as opposed to their last one that was made ‘down south eh’. Moreporks are a bunch of decent cats from New Zealand and they sent me a mean sweater with an embroidered fly-fishing dude on it and all the people at work are peaking on it. They also sent me a photo of my favourite mountain range. Good cunts. Read more →
Naples hosted this year’s Vans Spring Classic and when we weren’t scoffing ourselves on the tennis club buffet of deep fried snacks and crazily oversized mozzarella chunks we filmed a bit. I’ve no idea who won cos the driver whisked us away half pissed to the airport. But I did see Danny Carlson smash his head to smithereens and then get back up to take 2nd place. Bjørn Lillesø killed it and Jonas Skrøder got best trick with a gap transfer tailslide which stunned even the mob. Read more →
