Have a listen to the short (Maybe a little too short.) but sweet number.
A new 18-piece collection from the UK fashion label
With the burgeoning British fashion designer famously known for her work with Kanye West.
River Island Design Forum: Katie Eary
Katie Eary who has famously worked with Kanye West on his previous collections has been chosen as the newest collaborator to work with the UK’s high end street brand, River Island for their Design Forum Spring/Summer collection.
I’m not usually a fan of animal print but the pattern seems to work in this particular collection, mixed with bright, bold colours for its fashion pieces, swimwear and accessories.
Remixing Ms Lauryn Hill's first single
With added production from Penthouse Penthouse
Mikos: Lauryn Hill – Doo Wop (Remix)
I wish I had known about San Fran’s Mikos Da Gawd sooner, because clearly I’ve been missing out on a great producer.
His new release (and my first introduction to him), remixing Lauryn Hill’s first single ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ from her 1998 debut album ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’, is funky, funky, FUNKY.

Singapore's elite fashion and street wear label
The High Priestess at FALSE Brand & Subsidiaries
An Interview with Amanda S.
I’ve been a fan of Singapore label FALSE for some time now. Back when Lupe Fiasco rapped about the creators – Amanda and Le Messie – in his song ‘Paris, Tokyo’. Seriously.
But then it seemed that things got two crazy for the duo, and they sort of disappeared…
About a year or so ago, Amanda and Le Messie decided to bring the FALSE label back into the spotlight (with the introduction of various other labels they had kept hidden away).
But nonetheless, after all that time, with such a strong following to their name, it did not deter us from keeping an interest in the brand and sharing our interest.
Now it’s time for me to share that interest with you. Hit the jump to find out more about Amanda, one of the co-founders and creators behind FALSE.
A brand known for making hardwearing, high quality garments for over 50 years.

Lonsdale have recently launched a limited edition collection for their new Winter 2014 range.
Entitled ‘Urban Pursuit’, Lonsdale has focused on urban culture and style trends that are reflective and reminiscent of the military and wild animals – both of which you may encounter when deep in the jungle.

Matt Huynh's latest comic book.
Vietnamese-Australian artist based in New York City.
Event Review: MA Comic Book Launch and Exhibition
Whilst The 5 to 9 Life has officially jumped ship to Melbourne, there is still some representation happening in Sydney.
And a couple weeks ago when an invitation arrived in my inbox to attend a comic book launch and exhibition of ‘MA’, two main emotions arose: jealousy that I was not in Sydney for the event and excitement that I was able to send a couple of representatives to attend the event as I experienced it vicariously through their words and photos.
The result? Hit the link below.
Featuring SchoolBoy Q
LA native DJ Mustard on the boards
Tinashe: 2 On
Been sitting on this song for a while now.
I can’t write anything bad about it.
Even the sample of Sean Paul is in this case, a good thing, because it fits with the production of the song and doesn’t deter you from Tinashe’s gorgeous vocals, SchoolBoy Q’s guest verse or DJ Mustard’s bouncy beats.
Listen to it NOW.
