It’s always a pleasure to have my illustrations out in the world for folks to appreciate, and even more so when they’re used to honor fellow creatives / heavy-hitters in the game like Sean Wotherspoon. Much love to Nike and my creative agency homies for reaching out and having me contribute to this one-off book for Sean, in anticipation of the drop of his fire Air Max 97/1. Peep my illustrations for the book below. 👟 ✨ ✍️

Stoked to release my latest mix for the grand opening of the official Garrett Leight store in Dallas! I’ve been listening to a lot of house music lately and really wanted to incorporate some of my favorite tunes into this mix. A lot of these tracks give me a Venice vibe, so it’s my way of brining those GL / Cali vibes to Dallas. A good number of these songs are vinyl-only releases that I ordered from a SoCal shop that digs deep and gets their hands on obscure records. Shout out to House of Plates for making the GL connection. Hope you enjoy the mix!

Beyond stoked to announce I’m setting Miami on 🔥🔥🔥 this Friday, 12/8 from 2-6 PM for The FADER’s Boom Basel block party at Art Basel! Yours truly will be on the decks. Nighttime sets by MadeinTYO and DJ Oreo. Saturday’s festivities include sets by KYLE and Noodles. You never know who else my pop up! 🚨🌴☀️

My mini interview & DJ set live from Sway In The Morning is up now on Mixcloud! I felt like I was 16 again, and I’m still on a high! Much love to DJ Wonder, Sway and Heather B for their hospitality. Today was a reminder of why I started DJing and why the craft is so important to me. I am super fortunate to make a living doing something I’ve loved all my life and I’m grateful for those of you who understand DJing as an art and appreciate those of us who put in the time and respect the craft. This morning will stay with me forever.

NY Zine

November 13, 2017

In Spring of 2014, SudieRo and I spent a month living in Brooklyn. I played 1992 w Vashtie & Oscar at Webster Hall (RIP), Booty Fade played the original EVR (RIP), Sudie released her 1st single ever “Heartattack,” and wrote and recorded new music (in an actual studio… but also in the bathtub of our Airbnb 😂). We saw a secret Mac Demarco show at Baby’s All Right, a Danny Brown in-store at Rough Trade. We ate a lot of pizza and Jamaican food, drank a lot of Ting, met a lot of cool peeps, hung w friends, hit the flea market and had some hilarious drunken (them, not me lol) cab rides from the city back to BK. Along the way, we snapped a few Polaroids of our shenanigans and put the best ones in this zine. Much thx to David for the inspiration to document these moments in time. Hit my online STORE to get your hands on a copy of this baby (edition of 100, hand numbered, and ready to ship this wk)! 🍕🚕🗽❤️
