So we decided to try something new and have a photoshoot in our warehouse. With the help from an up and coming photographer, Hortencia “Tezz” Caires, we got together four models, a fashion stylist, a hairstylist, and a make-up artist to the warehouse on a Saturday. It took all day, but we had a lot of fun. Let us know what you think of the results. If this one goes well we will do a shoot every season. Be sure to share this page on facebook and twitter. If you share it on facebook be sure to choose your favorite photo as a thumbnail.

Bedroom Rockers

I was thinking back to a photo feature I saw in XLR8R magazine a long time ago and found the book Bedroom Rockers: Where DJ’s Call Home by Christopher Woodcock. The book is long out of print but thankfully there are several photos still on Christopher’s website. Some awesome names featured here and at an exciting time for DJing (2004). Home computers and laptops were just starting to sneak their way into the DJ/home producer setup but not without a healthy dose of samplers and synths stacked around the turntables. Makes me wonder what people’s home setups would look like today…

See more photos at Christopher Woodcock’s website.

Cornelius on the Tenori-on

Found this video of Japanese musician and multi-media artist Cornelius rocking out on a Tenori-on and Kaossilator live for the intro of his music and video Eyes. The Tenori-on bears some resemblence to the Monome (and Launchpad) I was talked about in a prior post, but is a bit simpler to use with built in programs on board that let you start jamming right away. The Kaossilator is just as plug and play with built in synth programs making these two a deadly touch combo. Check the vid and links below!
