Seems like the whole world is exploding with positive rad things right now. I'm continuously inspired by all the good energy that me and my friends are putting into the world. I head up a group called OuterActive, which handles production and live events at an advertising agency in Miami and Boulder. This past weekend we produced 4 separate events - 1 in Scottsdale, AZ, 2 in Boston and 1 in Atlanta. I flew back to Denver yesterday feeling extra proud to be working with such a professional and solid crew of producers. When I woke up this morning, I saw that Brian Schultz, one of my best friends and my former partner in crime at OuterActive was featured in an article in the New York Times about the events group he is now heading up at R/GA with another close friend and mentor of mine, Gabe Banner. It was so rad to see it, and I love both of these dudes a lot. In the article, Brian gives a shout out to the group we started together about 3 years ago, which was a nice surprise. Read it HERE

The Soul Clap homeboys (Charlie and Eli) are having an amazing year. They released a great mix on Art Department's No.19 label, did an amazing essential mix on Radio 1 and most recently released a super laid back DJ Kicks mix with Wolf + Lamb on K7! records. They also invited fans to make a video for their song "Lonely C" and the submissions are pretty cool. Basically they are making some of the most interesting electronic/techno/house music right now. Check them out!

LOVE LETTER FOR YOU
Steve Powers aka ESPO is an amazing artist who's been keeping it real since forever. My older buddies used to put me on to On The Go magazine, which was a hip-hop/culture magazine he ran in the 90s. Growing up he used to come to Boston every now and then and his graffiti was always the coolest and smartest. I remember he painted my grandfather's warehouse in Cambridge and we used to bug out on his pieces at the trestles. Then he wrote The Art of Getting Over, which to this day, is my favorite book written about graffiti. In 2009 he concepted and produced A Love Letter for You, which is beautiful to me because it interacts with the city in a low-fi and accessible way. Check it out.
