Posted by on 01/31/2012 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

In a good way to become one of the finest electro label, GHOST TECHNOLOGY is back for the new year with the debut album of the Croatia-based producer named POPKOMM better known as the half of UKV band (and also as the label co-manager). « Global Routing » contains 10 tracks on which we rediscorerd the spacey electronic touch already featuring on the most part of releases coming from this label (UKV E.P & signatures). This project must be listen as entire album however there are a couple of tracks that are better accomplished to stimulate a type of daydreaming, especially : ‘Behind Me’, ‘Look Back’, ‘Applied’, ‘Distant’. POPKOMM wins to produce a lovely album connecting at his own way the earlier electro and the new era of electronic music. Recommended!

Posted by on 11/30/2010 | Category : // Visual Art / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

From Paris, PRO 176 is a pure graffiti writer artist. PRO designs some galactic environments and some futuristic letters inspired by the old Comics (in particular Jack Kurbi), the Sci Fi movies, the Astro Hip-Hop (Kool Keith, Cannibal Ox) and the 80’s Graffiti… He starts to the basics of graffiti writing to found his own touch keeping the purist approach and he is universally recognized for that. PRO 176 is bangin’ on the wall with his teams : the Ultra Boys [Belgium], the Grim Team [Paris] and recently with the Return to Zero [ Berlin]. PRO is also a rapper under his full nickname “PROFECY” and he is the back up singer for the legendary ASSASSIN band on tour since a couple of years.

Welcome in a full color nebula near to the planet Tatooine. Have a nice trip :

WRITERS – 20 ans de Graff à Paris

Posted by on 05/31/2010 | Category : Documentaries - Archives / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

WRITERS is the documentary about the history of graffiti in PARIS during 1983 to 2003. It’s like a frenchy STYLE WARS with a focus on the oldschool and also on the newschool activists. This summary of 20 years is very interesting to understand the evolution of the movement : the happiness of the discovery to a hardcore battle. Inspired by New York, connected with England and Germany, PARIS is known to have created the basement of 90’s European style. Like a Bible, this documentary explains the classic legacy of graffiti. The documentary is written by a disciple with a non-objective point of view however he has really honored the lovers of letters and that’s the most important. If it’s always necessary to start a culture by respecting the foundation…later it’s better to commit a sin : to break the rules and write the future! But Sometimes it’s good to trust again in the utopia of the purist version :
