When he’s not designing camo bucks for Bathing Ape or, y’know, being named GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer, Marc McNairy is listening to a whooooole lot of Danny Brown. He’s a superfan, as this new shirt (entitled, naturally, the Cool Ranch Doritos T) from his New Amsterdam collection will attest. Pick one up while they last.
Head over to iTunes to grab the new LP of club mixes Surkin commissioned from his pals. Everybody from Rustie to Brodinski has their way with tunes from the USA album, including our own A-Trak, who whipped up a chunky take on “Never Let Go,” which you can check below. Lezdooit!
Telephoned is DJ/producer Sammy Bananas and singer Maggie Horn, a dynamic duo specializing in unique covers, unexpected pop jams and general good times. Switchboard sees the group turning that vibe into a monthly NYC party with remix and remake-heavy sets from their friends and fam (and themselves, of course), featuring everything from The Suzan gleefully bashing away on a Miike Snow song to Nick Catchdubs dropping a set of ’80s-jacking Bad Boy hits.
You don’t want to miss out this Tuesday (April 17th), when Telephoned celebrates the party’s one year anniversary at Drom on Avenue A. They’ll be performing alongside Mattie Safer and Party Supplies, while Nick Catchdubs, Autobot of Flosstradamus, DJ Wonder and Musa throw down DJ sets. The night is also a fundraiser for CCFA, an Crohns and colitis research organization that Maggie will be running a half marathon for this summer (more information and links to donate here). Good tunes, good cause… we’ll see you there! Check the full flyer after the jump. Read More
