Greyboy is spinning live today and the whole Warchruch turntable crew should be showing up soon! Warchruch is just a big jam at Greyboys house where him and his friends all jump on turn tables and spin some rad music. “funky beats and breaks spanning all musical genres, but focusing on funk, soul, jazz, and hip hop. special guest d.j.’s and artists will be appearing soon…” If you are on the computer today and need some good music to listen to, you should definitely check it out! We’ve got the feed embeded after the jump, or you can go to their ustream.tv page and get in the mix!
Check it out after the jump – Continue reading Live Greyboy →
Through a few message boards and some random clicking I just came across this rad video on, a site called Quality Control, that compiles sounds from the world to create music. I really love the concept and the video is quite fun.
Taj from Wejetset just posted a link in twitter to a post on Apartment Therapy’s Unplugged site with a look into the home office of super blogger, Brian Lam, who runs Gizmodo. With a site as big as Gizmodo, you’d think they would have a big office with a bunch of employs, but it’s actually completely opposite. Brian just works out of his house… On his dining room table to be exact. There’s a cool interview to go along with the photos about working from home, clutter, and living with electronics.
David Lang hooked us up with an amazing photo series from the Red Bull 3Style Tour. Red Bull 3Style takes place in ten cities across Canada with eight DJs at each stop. Their challenge: to deliver fifteen minutes of sonic infamy that incorporates three genres of music. The winning DJ from each of the 10 cities will be flown to Toronto for the final showdown at C1RCA on March 13th as part of Canadian Music Week.
The TJD guys hooked us up with an exclusive trailer for their video that will be out in the summer. Check out what they had to say about the clips.
“TJD is excited to work with Defgrip to showcase a freestyle video. It is meant to bring fun back into bmx while showcasing some rad riding. It features some well established names along with some under the radar riders. TJD isn’t serious, it’s about having fun with your friends on that common link called a bike but some of the riding produced tends to be serious. TJD is psyched to just ride and have fun, with a camera in hand to capture the moments and share them with all of you to spread the good vibes. Hope you all enjoy the trailer as much as we had fun filming for it, on and off the bikes.” -Jeff DuPaul
We are excited to present an interview with designer/photographer/BMXer, Jason Eichhorst, or as some of you may know him as Skier Jay. Jay has been involved with the Utah BMX scene for years, shot some of your favorite photos, as well as designed some of your favorite ads and bike graphics. We hit up Jay and asked him all about all of the above and he hit us back with a dope interview and some great work samples!
This is too dope not to post. Imagine watching this when your computer is going slow, making those pixel ghost on top of the intentional ghosts…
Mike Aitken has pieced together a new bike in between physical therapy and other duties. Hit up the Fit site for more pics.
There are a bunch of rad photos on the Lotek site from the Team Shralp art show a few weeks back. The was dope and they have a nice mix of party photos and photos of all the work.
Ever get int a situation where you see a font you are into, but have no idea what it is? This happens to me on a daily basis, so I was super stoked to come across this iPhone app. It’s an extension of What The Font, the web based app, but they way it works, is you take a photo with your iPhone of the sign or photo or whatever it is has the font you are into, run it through the What The Font app and you’ll get a list of possible options of what that font could be! I have tried it a few times and it’s been pretty good… A few fonts didn’t register, but if you are into design and have an iPhone, this is a must! The best part about it is it’s free.
I’m sure you all saw the Audi commercial “The Chase” during the Super Bowl a few weeks ago. Not only was it fun to watch, cramming the iconic styles of each decade into thirty seconds, but it was also very cool to see Audi give a nod (underhanded as it may have been) to Mercedes and BMW, yet openly snub Lexus, long notorious for producing cars that look great on paper but lack any sort of soul. So funny how he gives the Lexus a disgusted look, and continues running.
The black 280SE was a perfect selection to represent Mercedes in the 70s, as was the E28 with BMWs iconic shark nose. After jumping that car through the billboard, they actually posted it on eBay the following week.
As a proponent of rear wheel drive I can’t exactly agree that the current decade actually belongs to Audi, but this commercial is definitely worth a few views.
Check out the full commercial here.

I know people hate on Neck Face, but I’m cool with his stuff.
I spotted this is L.A. tonight, and it looks to be a commissioned piece. It definitely stands out.

I just got a Contax G2 and did a post about it on my personal blog. Nuno and I have been having a lot of discussions about what we should post on Defgrip vs. our personal sites and we decided I should run this post here. I’m super psyched on my G2 and you can read all about why I picked the camera up after the jump as well as check out some of the first photos I shot with it.
