Last week I did a workshop in New York for the Make Something!! School in association with Nike. They’ve been getting people like Todd James, Carri Munden from Cassette Playa, Todd Selby and more to come in and work with teenagers from the City. They’re all preparing a big blowout ceremony that will be taking place next weekend at the World Basketball Festival. In my case, I was asked to help the kids come up with a 1 minute musical performance.
The latest Nike+ exercise mix (where’d we hear about those before?) comes courtesy of our good buds Flosstradamus, who mix together a batch of brand-new De La Soul tracks (the trio’s first new material in years!) for a seamless running/listening experience. We will refrain from making a potholes in my lawn reference here. Oops too late! Download it from iTunes today!
Right around when A-Trak’s Running Man mix for Nike+ first dropped, he went to the Nike ID studios with our art director Dust La Rock and our pal Kesh to test out some colorways. Now you can put the fruits of their afternoon on your feet by winning these Nike ID dunks! We have 5 pairs to give away, all you have to do is email us your name, shoe size, shipping address (no PO boxes, you gotta be able to sign for these) and phone number, and we’ll choose winners at random next week.
UPDATE: Almost 1,000 entries in a weekend, not too shabby! Congratulations to Erin McCulley of St Petersburg, Keena Carson of Newport News, Ronald Moore Jr of the Bronx, Dean Bryce of London, and Yan Philippe of Montreal!
Tonight at Alife NYC there’s a shindig to celebrate the release of the inimitable ?uestlove’s custom “Air Questo” AF1s, and our own Treasure Fingers will be DJing. It’s an invite-only event, but we’re sure someone will be there to blog it for posterity. In other Treasure Fingers news, check out his new remix for Big Gipp just added on the TF MySpace, and look for the long-awaited official release of his “Cross The Dancefloor” single next week!
Dudes! You’ve known since this post that I was about to come out with a record for all your jogging needs. This is essentially my first record — can you feel the excitement in my blogging style today? Anyway it’s out now and you can cop it on iTunes. It’s available all over the world but our North American friends also get a 5 minute “behind the scenes” style video shot in my studio living room.
