Brixton's Brian Delatorre Interview

Words by Adam Sullivan | Portrait By Jason Lee

Few people ever get the chance to have a career in front of a lens. Fewer still take the time to jump behind the lens. Meet Brixton Skate Ambassador Brian Delatorre, who’s just as likely to shoot as be shot.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO?
I live in the Mission District; the city is changing, though.
There’s tons of development, tons of tech industry now… It’s a bummer, but I try not to pay any attention to it. If you let it bother you, you might as well just get out. I got my own thing, anyway.

IS ALL THE CHANGE GOOD FOR SKATING?
Eh, like any major city, spots come and go. If anything,there’s new buildings, but even they come pre-knobbed.
But you know what? The hills ain’t changing, and that’s the whole point of SF—you go there to bomb hills.

The Drift release “Hunted”

The Drift Hunted

Hunted is the first single from The Drift’s forthcoming album The Mountain Star.

Picking singles are always a challenge for us. The Drift’s albums work as a full body of work telling one big story – so throwing out one track for public consumption is usually quite tricky. We decided to give you ‘Hunted’, the central chapter of the new album ‘The Mountain Star’. It is a fair representation of what to expect from the new full length effort. There are faster songs, there are slower songs, so this one is a nice middle ground from what to expect from the 3rd chapter in the ‘Deluge’ trilogy. We’ll divulge more on the lyrical context of the song when the album is released.
We’ll be shooting the live performance portion of the track’s Music Video on Sunday, the 1st of March at the brand new Mercury Live Johannesburg (at Carfax). We welcome all who want to come round and be a part of it!
Much love from your pals!
– The Drift

DVS Skate and Create Detroit FINAL – 2015

DVS Skate and Create Final

The DVS team travels to Detroit’s in search of semi-safe abandoned buildings, the kind of off the radar locations that have become ideal breeding grounds for DIY skate spots. With brooms, a drill, and some concrete, they set about converting the nine floors of the fire damaged Fisher Plant 21 into a skateable spot with a surreal ghostly backdrop.

Featuring: Paul Shier, Jon Nguyen, Luis Tolentino, Daewon Song & Blake Johnson

The EYE Presents: Rituals by Ello Xray Eyez

Ello Xray Eyez is a visual designer from South Africa, living and working in Cape Town. Inspired by comics, animations and people amongst other things, her work is predominantly character-based with an unknown narrative. The viewer is left to find relevant connections within their own iconography and experiences. Stylised and surreal elements are combined to create energetic compositions that are graphic and colourful. Working with themes of memories, fun times, current feels, characters and personal relevance, she is also influenced by the dynamics of organic versus geometric shapes, straight vs curved, balance, composition and texture.

Gazelle & Invizable: The Rise & Fall of an Empire

 Gazelle & Invizable: The Rise & Fall of an Empire

24 January 2015
Gazelle & Invizable: The Rise & Fall of an Empire

After a four year hiatus the duo known as Gazelle & Invizable have concluded their second and final album called “The Rise & Fall of an Empire” which portraits the cycle of life, death and resurrection within a conceptual narrative of civilization, society on individual, its lifespan and socio-­political ideology. The group shot to critical acclaim when their debut album “Chic Afrique” broke through the South African music scene and into the world, making waves that shook the idea of musical genre with their unique self titled ‘Limpop’ sound. This album is a swan song for the duo as they have decided to let go of the band and focus on personal projects between New York and Cape Town. With their choice cemented they have decided to offer the album to their fans and listeners for free as a sign of gratitude for their faith and support over what was a magical time in South African culture and development, resonating the groups respect of each other and the people that helped to build what was truly a magnificent moment in African dance music.

Two final performances in South Africa will write the last chapter of this iconic group with a show in Cape Town at Assembly on the 24th of January and the final show in Pretoria at Park Acoustics on the 25th of January.

The Rise & Fall of an Empire came to life after traveling across South Africa and putting together an ‘African Orchestra’ to perform an 11 scene or song tale about the infinite cycle of life. This was visually translated by Austrian artists Constantin Demner and Sarah Littasy from Studio Elastic. An incredible art piece was created out of illustration and built into a 3D object with paper which was then filmed and photographed.

On the 24th of January prior to the final Cape Town show this art piece will be installed along with a listening session of the album in the Annex of Assembly courtesy of Red Bull Studios Cape Town where the preliminary recordings was done.
