I was introduced to Cain And Abel just a few days ago. I have heard of them prior through my good friend Jordan but have never heard any of their music until recently. While on tour playing when playing in Ottawa we were fortunite enough to be able to put them up for a few nights. This is when I learned about Cain And Abel. They are deffently one of the most down to earth musically tallented legit people/groups I’ve ever met. Their music is …. words can’t even discribe, just check their myspace, go to their shows and support such a tight band. Their video for Sing it, with some soul was myspace video of the week a while back and here it is again.

Shephard Fairey is by far one of my favorite artists and designers. While browsing Woostercollective.com I found this interview relating to his Rise Above Exhibition at Merry Kernowsky Gallery which runs from December 1 2007 to January 5 2008. Knowing where his inspiration and influences came from is from being a developing and growing designer to being involved with Obey, Studio Number 1 and Swindle and how he is now in a position to help and employ creatives.
It has been a while since I have posted anything. Mainly it is because school has picked up greatly and I’ve started a new job.
A few friends and I have started another blog called Doin’ Work. The name comes from the sayings of Rob and Big. The blog is just for fun and should be taken lightly.
On the music side of things, Gold Front Records has been playing some shows here in Ottawa. Our great friend DJ Barletta has been poppin’ up in blogs with some of his mixes like he owns the internet (which he does). His Daft Punk RMX was featured in MissingToof a few weeks back along side sebastiAn and Justice remixes. Here is the RMX again along with his new Ocelot mix!
JFK, former DFA1979 basest and member of the revolutionary MSTRKRFT has started doing some solo production. Some of my favorite so far are the Space Cowboy mix and the Bloc Party FLUX mix. Check them out below!
