Hudson-Mohawke-Chimes1

Hudson Mohawke – Chimes

Hudson Mohawke will release his  new solo EP, Chimes, on September 30 via Warp Records. You can listen to one of the new tracks from the project now on iTunes.  The track is also featured on the new Apple Macbook Air commercial.

The commercial features MacBook Airs festooned by stickers reflecting their users’ tastes, personalities and purposes.

“The notebook people love” is the tagline. And it’s a message that’s communicated giddily (almost like a throwback to Apple’s classic iPod work) with shot after shot of icons, cityscapes, planets, digital gadgets, pop-culture characters and more—all cavorting and posing around the Apple logo in the middle of the notebook’s lid. Check out the commercial below.

A Look at the LeBron 12 Sneaker

The Lebron 11 sneaker came and went and now with Lebron James back in Cleveland, photos of the Lebron 12 are making their rounds. The sneaker features a futuristic look with an upper that appears to be constructed of a composite mesh, while independent, piston-like bottom loaded Zoom bags, along the outsole provide the cushioning with a lower ride.

Vice News looks at Marijuana Business & Legalization in Jamaica

Jamaica’s first medicinal marijuana company, Medicanja, launched this year against a backdrop of reinvigorated debate around ganja law reform among leading policymakers. The renowned Jamaican scientist Dr. Henry Lowe, a leader in THC studies for medical purposes, is running the company with the University of West Indies and the University of Technology jointly funding the facility. In addition to studying the scientific benefits of marijuana, Dr. Lowe says the company will produce CBD-based medical products, which fall under legally accepted medicinal use of the ganja plant. Lowe says the plant extract can be used to treat psychosis and severe pain, as well as mid-life crises in men.
