This British uni student is having fun with binaries and fun with her overdraft.

Being a student in Manchester, I wanted to photograph the lifestyle that comes with it. My inspiration for most of my shoots and styling aesthetic comes from what I do for fun: going to galleries or grime and garage events, mixing with different creatives, even traveling Asia when I can. I take my camera everywhere with me because you never know […]

What’s In Yr Fridge, RY X?

Indie ballader RY X shares a new remix, and the panoramic seaside surrounding his studio.

In RY X’s latest single, the Australian singer-songwriter-wanderluster invites listeners in, cautiously, carefully. It’s a sumptuous palette, earning a tropicalia-techno remix by Fort Romeau. Repetitious vocal samplings swell in this version, as spacious piano chords delineate spacious boundaries. A dance beat, bit by bit, takes control, driving a satisfying dance/trance listening experience. Ry X, soft and elegant in his delivery, […]

Were The ‘90s L.A.’S Golden Age?

On the 24th anniversary of the Rodney King Riots, we consider this through the lens of MOCA’S Don’t Look Back exhibition

Would the turmoil of ’90s—riots, earthquakes, and lack of diversity—be called L.A.’s “Golden Age?” Last night at the MOCA Museum, speaker Gregory Rodriguez introduced curator Helen Molesworth and four other professors and doctors to give a personal insight on this subject. Pontificating on how rapidly the city had changed, it was agreed that L.A. had endured what most thought as […]

FRAME Brings Cult Couture Jeans To New L.A. Storefront

And we caught up with Erik Torstensson & Jens Grede of FRAME at their new L.A. location on Melrose.

What’s your favorite thing about having a cult denim label?  Firstly, it’s incredibly flattering and humbling to have FRAME described as a “cult” label, neither of us – nor our team who work so tirelessly on the creation of our pieces – would ever have expected for FRAME to take off so successfully the way it has thus far. If we think about […]

Kolomensky — “Illumination” Track Premiere

The Moscow producer and DJ shares his new acid house track, from Russia, with love.

Russian DJ Kolomensky shares his airy acid house single with us and I’m really disappointed. Mostly because that track doesn’t automatically come with a private Ibizan dancehall, a mile wide open bar, and a steaming indoor waterfall. This is the sound of you slamming Red Bull vodkas, crowding through throngs of wealthy revelers, till you’re dripping with self confidence (and other […]

Organic Sculptress Karolina Maszkiewicz Reminds Us Of Life’s Irrational Beauty

Through May 7, Ochi Projects presents Polleō Alluve, a respiring/inspiring sculptural installation by Karolina Maszkiewicz.

It’s rare that an exhibition warns you upfront about the live flowers, insects and pollen. But for artist Karolina Maszkiewicz, that’s the thesis of her latest exhibition. In Polleō Alluve, plants and flowers create an ever-changing experience on the first floor gallery space. Together, these several installations exceed representation, instead “becoming” an actual garden. Some large-scale sculptures hang from the ceiling. A […]

Q&A: Malika Has The Throwback Vibe You Need Right Now

"Put It On Me" is the London vocalist's response to everything we loved (and still love) about '90s R&B.

Malika, what told you that music was your calling? I’ve been singing since I was around 6-years-old. My Dad had a studio so I’ve always been around music, and as a teenager I had all of these ideas, emotions, and stories that I wanted to tell and music gave me the outlet to do that. Do you remember where you […]

Nadia Hilker Will Kick Your Ass And Make You Say ‘Danke’

The Divergent star admits she loves Netflix documentaries, nature walks, and assorted bad-assery... but she won't say much about what she's working on next.

Nadia Hilker is no stranger to hard work. Hailing from Munich, West Germany, she began acting in 2010, snagging smaller roles in German television. In 2014 she debuted in her first lead role in the German movie Spring—a romantic sci-fi film. It was her latest project, however, in the Divergent series as the smart, confident, and no-nonsense Nita, that catapulted […]

What’s In Yr Fridge, Adventure Galley?

The Portland indie-tronica outfit shares studio photos from their church and reminds us of a time we did not utter God's name.

Meet Adventure Galley. They’re a bandolier of good time music makers hailing from Portland. They blend New Wave shimmering, Post Punk dreariness, and the casual frontman aplomb which ran amok during the 2006-2009 post-Strokes indie explosion. Sometimes they opt for a long sustained synth, and sometimes they sincerely bring out the acoustic guitar. And while it’s not music once can […]
