Im going to be art directing and designing the new Keys N Krates website soon but for now, go check out their blog!

KEYS N KRATES BIO

KEYS N KRATES are like nothing you’ve ever seen before.  With their live instrumentation, manipulation of turntablism and the progressive technology of Electronic Music, KEYS N KRATES have ‘re-invented the remix’. KNK consists of  certified turntablist and ‘partyrocker’ DJ Jr Flo (EH! Team DJ’s), the ever soulful Matisse on keys and hard hitting Tune on Drums. They’ve received rave reviews from online publications such as the Virgin Music blog, Urb Magazine, Killahbeez, and Frank 151 to name a few. Over the past year they’ve toured all of Canada and have started making their presence felt in the U.S. playing shows at CMJ (NYC), URB holiday party (NYC), w/ Questlove at the famous S.O.B.’s and in March will be playing South By Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) for the first time. The “Live Remix” artists are something to be both seen and heard.

Kanye’s Editor.

So I check out Kanye’s blog sometimes, and I enjoy learning his design knowledge and experiences to an extent. But there was one post that kind of got on my nerves. he did a collab with Louis Vuitton, and its a great collab, but in this post while ranting on some publication, he made a big error. he spelled it out LOUIE VUITTON. Note below

SO you know I had to let him know ( Page 5 in the comments)

Its not a diss at all, just a heads up. Ye, be sure to pronounce the major company ( Yes much more major than yourself) that you are collaborating with correctly on all aspects of public speaking. Remember ” Some of my plastic still says Kane”…

Obama’s Custom Cadillac.

below is President Obama’s new ride while in Office. The secret service are calling it THE BEAST and from a design stand point, it sure is. However this ride is purely function over fashion.

From Cadillac:

“The presidential vehicle is built to precise and special specifications, undergoes extreme testing and development, and also incorporates many of the top aspects of Cadillac’s ‘regular’ cars — such as signature design, hand-cut-and-sewn interiors, etc.,” a GM spokesperson confirmed.

“Cadillac is honoured to serve and renew this great tradition,” she said. “And it is entirely appropriate that an American president has at his service a great American vehicle.”

Now, “that extreme testing and development” really means bulletproof glass, flatproof tires, and armour to fend off machine gun fire and meteors. Reportedly the armor surrounding the car is at least five inches thick making it, as some news outlets have put it, “rocket-resistant.” The interior is a “cocoon” to seal off from chemical attacks.
