First Look: The Albion #1

click to enlarge

Defgrip is happy to present you the cover to Albion #1.

My opinion? The cover looks great and it leaves me excited to see a physical copy. Simple as that.

In case you missed it, we previously interviewed Daniel Benson regarding The Albion, which will have a launch party on the 31st of March (today) in East London. The interview and release party info can be found HERE.

In addition, the Albion guys filmed a quick behind the scenes view of the printing process of the first mag. The video also contains little previews as people flip through copies. Click below to check that out.

Thanks to the Albion crew for hooking us up with all this.



The Demolition crew have just about wrapped up filming for their latest project, Last Chance. It’s all being put together now, and a premier is roughly scheduled for sometime in April.

Considering the team and the amount of time that’s been put into this project, I figured it would be cool reach out to main dudes with parts and get their take on working on the video.

I asked them all one simple question:
What comes to mind from your time filming for this video and the sessions?

Please note, there’s plenty more riders featured in split parts and mix sections.

Thanks to Joey Cobbs, Brian Castillo and Chris Long for the pics and help.



Pretty epic music video for an artist named Woodkid… I wonder where the budget came from to produce this video?
