FLüD Watches x Mayer Hawthorne

NYC-based FLüD Watches recently collaborated with singer, song writer, and producer Mayer Hawthorne (one of ACITM’s favorites). The two collaborated for a special edition “TABLETURNS” timepiece. Once recognized as “DJ Haircut” and being an avid record collector, it’s easy to figure out the design inspiration behind the timepiece.

Watches are a must have spring/summer accessory. Top off any outfit the right way with a touch of sophistication.

Video of the Week: A-Trak & Dillon Francis – Money Makin’

Who doesn’t like a dancing ATM machine and flying dollar bills? The new video from Fool’s Gold’s A-Trak and Dillon Francis features an ATM machine that comes to life to roam the streets and clubs of New York City. With appearances by Greg Nice and P-Thugg of Chromeo, the video and beats prove once again that anything A-Trak puts his name on is, like his label, golden.

Video of the Week: Black Lips vs. Holograms

While everyone all over the nation was talking about the Tupac “hologram” (read: “non-physical illusion”) standard set by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, the Black Lips once again proved their place at the forefront of cutting edge music culture  when they were joined by a “physical illusion” of Notorious B.I.G. for an unprecedented onstage collaboration.

You read that right. Black Lips and Big Poppa. Flower punk and hip-hop. Simply magic.

Check out this “Juicy-New Direction” the band took below (see what I did there?)… recorded by Noisey.
