Ah Wednesdays.The I’m so glad it’s not Monday but it’s so far from Friday day. To help get you over the midweek hump, I’ll be sharing mixes I’ve been listening to from various sources including Mixcloud, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, 8tracks and NPR.

Up first is a great mix from London DJ, Ali B on Mixcloud. Oh Shit! (Paradise) Vol.2 moves seamlessly between Funk, Soul, Blues and Hip Hop and is bound to make you bob your head and completely forget about that pile of work on your desk. Enjoy.

Just my type of city | Celbrating Typography in Cape Town

I stumbled upon a great website that showcases two of my favorite things; amazing typography and my hometown of Cape Town. CTTYPE created by Cape Town creative, Rowan Eva encourages people to upload their favorite pics of type in the city. The submissions range from beautifully hand drawn type to fantastic signage on art deco buildings and signage for businesses.

Check out CTTYPE and if you’re ever in Cape Town, make sure you take some pics of the city’s typography.

There’s a lot to look forward to this spring; the end of this bitter winter, prolonged patio sessions, hot sunny days and the launch of the 25th Anniversary Adidas ZX pack. Adidas pays homage to their legendary, ground breaking ZX sneaker range, launched in the eighties, with bright colorways for their ZX5000, ZX8000 and ZX9000 sneakers. These bad boys will be hitting stores in April.

The haunting urban landscapes of Paul Rouphail

A Tall Building In An American City. oil. 54 x 54 in. 2012_II

Pittsburgh-based artist, Paul Rouphail, paints incredibly beautiful urban landscapes. The first thing I noticed when first looking at his work however, is the complete emptiness of these landscapes. Without people or activity, these pretty normal landscapes take on a completely different tone.

“The city’s rolling hills and expansive vistas allow for light to pierce the architectural fabric in such a way that the city, as a landscape, is in a constant state of flux; light is always shifting, and the possibilities for discovery are ever more present.”
