Zane Lowe meets…. Rick Rubin

Zane meets legendary music producer Rick Rubin, one of the most important musical figures of all time.  There were many topics discussed in the video including the iconic Def Jam Logo which Rubin design. 

“I had no idea. I mean, I thought in terms of I like iconic logos. And, I wanted to make something beautiful, but I never thought anyone would ever see it. Ever,” Rubin said. “And, the same with the records we made in the early days. We didn’t make them thinking this is going to change the world or ‘I can’t wait for everybody to hear it.’ It was more like, ‘I know my friends will like this. And, if 500 people like this, that’s great. If we can sale enough of these to get to get to make another one then we succeeded,’ Rubin said.

The Nike Sportswear Gold Hypervenom Collection

Nike is releasing a new collection to coincide with the World Cup going on in Brazil.  The collection pays tribute to Neymar based on his new Nike cleat – the Gold Hypervenom Phantom Special Edition boot.  The collection applies the gold treatment to  the Nike Free Flyknit Chukka, Nike Air Max 1, Nike Roshe Run HYP, Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard, and the Nike Tiempo ’94.

The biggest stage demands the best talent. The brightest lights deserve the boldest look. Inspired by the Gold Hypervernom Phantom Special Edition boots, worn on the pitch by a beloved Brasilian phenom, Nike Sportswear will release a collection of five legendary and contemporary silhouettes signifying his quest for gold. On June 27, Nike Sportswear will introduce the Gold Hypervenom Collection.

As our Brasilian hero performs, he will wear a constant reminder of his aspirations thanks to a golden pair of Hypervenom Phantom boots. Paying homage to the on-pitch boot, the Nike Sportswear Hypervenom Collection features Nike Flyknit and Lunarlon technologies, as well as aesthetic adornments such as auric metallic hues and translucent outsoles. In this collection, football brilliance lives on through the Nike Free Flyknit Chukka, Nike Air Max 1, Nike Roshe Run HYP, Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard, and the Nike Tiempo ’94.

NIKE FREE FLYKNIT CHUKKA

The Nike Free Flyknit Chukka integrates the second-skin fit of Nike Flyknit and feather-light support of Nike Flywire with the barefoot-like feel of Nike Free for the ultimate everyday shoe. Featuring the same Nike Sportswear-specific outsole as the Nike Free OG and Nike Free Breathe, the Nike Free Flyknit Chukka delivers the classic Nike Free feel.

NIKE AIR MAX 1

On March 26, 1987, an Air Max revolution began that has progressed undeterred for 27 years. After celebrating the birth of the Air Max 1, the shoe known worldwide is re-imaged in a colorway worthy of the 1: gold.

NIKE ROSHE RUN HYP

Upon the arrival of the Nike Roshe Run in 2013, the minimal silhouette became an instant classic. The simple mesh upper and one-piece Phylon outsole serve as a blank canvas with endless design possibilities. Outfitted with Nike Hyperfuse construction, the Nike Roshe Run HYP features improved durability, breathability and support.

NIKE TIEMPO ‘94

Unabashedly classic, the Tiempo ’94 honors the genesis of Nike Football. Timeless details such as an oversized tongue, stitched upper, and bold heel branding are updated with tonal metallic-foil leather to pay tribute to the precious prize attained through victory.

NIKE AIR MAX 90 JACQUARD

The pattern-on-pattern capabilities of the distinctive jacquard weaving process brings new life to the upper of the classic Air Max 90 by eliminating traditional panels and overlays with a single piece of fabric. To increase comfort, a lighter Phylon midsole with forefoot flex grooves replaces traditional midsole construction.

The Nike Sportswear Hypervenom Collection will be available at Nike.com and select Nike Sportswear retailers on June 27.

Listen to the latest DJ Neil Armstrong “Original: All Out King” mix on TheFutureFM

This one is for the fans who have been listening to my mixes for the last 10 years and with this one he is bringing it full circle. You should know the deal. Original samples, mixed with their Hip Hop counterparts. Crossing genres, drawing that connecting line between rock, soul, reggae, opera, classical, blues, funk, jazz… let’s just call it good music. All mixed with that Hip Hop aesthetic, and all samples used were on original vinyl, to show love for the lost artform of diggin’. The 1st “Original” mixtape came out in 2001, and making it set me on this path that has literally brought me around the world and back. It introduced the Neil Armstrong brand to the world outside of his turntablist roots and became so significant to my life as DJ Neil Armstrong, a turning point if you will. Here for first time, the complete mix “Original All Out King” available via Digital Streaming courtesy of the future.fm

A Look at the Anwar Carrots x Puma Suede

 

The Pumas seen here are one of the dopest pairs of Pumas I have ever seen and it makes sense why. They were designed by Anwar Carrots of Peas and Carrots International fame.  What we see here are two dope pairs of  Puma Suede with a playful twist.

The sneakers come featuring a gum outsole, with two different colorways offered, one in black and the other in grey with accents of vibrant orange and teal are prominent on both.

The sneaker will launch exclusively in store and Peas and Carrots International on Saturday, June 21st, and will arrive at select retailers later on June 25th.

You can also check out Anwar’s interview with NiceKicks where he discusses the sneaker and his ethos:

The partnership came about through Roc Nation, where Casey Veggies is managed. Rich Kleiman called me asking for an influencer for the PUMA Social Club that we were doing. It went from making a bike to going to Brazil for a photoshoot, and eventually a shoe came about. The shoe is a year in the making….. Working on the Suede versus our own clothing line was pretty simple. We had three colors to work with, and I worked with the PUMA team on it. With the clothing line, you have to come up with concepts, the art director has to go through a bunch of designing steps and I have to choose what I like and what I don’t like. With the PUMA team, it was very simple – it was just colors and where I wanted everything to go.
