Speakers and headphones are everywhere these days, and they all seem to be more of the same, plastic, average-sounding, heavy pieces of disposable junk. However, Grain Audio, a New York-based speaker company is kissing off the mediocre and mundane, and bringing us something different.

The smart start-up has gained a reputation for clean, simple aesthetics and a fastidious approach to sound and social responsibility. We spoke with the Grain Audio team to shed some light on what’s really important when it comes to personal sound and how they’ve achieved it.

Palladium Boots gets funky with Major Lazer and Ms. Dynamite.

Palladium Boots, the ultra-cool urban footwear company, has joined forced with none other than Major Lazer and the fabulous Ms. Dynamite to produse a new video spotlighting the very best shoes for exploring all those unseen nooks and crannies of the city landscape. Los Angeles-based dancers, the Underground Street Chronicles, star in the new video for “Sweat”, dancing their hearts out with glow in the dark make-up, clothes and, of course, boots from the Fall/Winter Palladium collection. The visuals are stunning and original alongside Major Lazer’s pumping beats. Director Ryan Staake (Diplo) shot the video in black lights and those neon elements are joined with droplets and splashes of neon paint that suggest graffiti art, creating a multimedia homage to urban style. Check out the full line of Palladium Boots at palladiumboots.com.

SPONSOR: Levi’s® recently kicked off a new project to both explore and discover the source and inspiration of creative ambition across art forms.

Bringing this effort to life are the trio of celebrated, Mercury-prize nominated hip-hopper Ghostpoet, along with forward-looking electronic maestro Koreless and visual artist Alex Turvey. During this endeavour, fans have been asked to share what moves them artistically with the hashtags #makeourmark and #moves.


Meanwhile, Ghostpoet, Koreless, and Turvey have been hard at work on a singular piece of collaboration with each artist focusing on their core strength: Ghostpoet handles the words, Koreless has been composing music and Turvey has been crafting the visual representation. In the view below, the artists tell us about the piece they have been creating.
