Cult11AD by Jake Michael Singer

Cult Collective prides themselves on psychedelic eccentricism and the ‘alternative, the offbeat and the unusual’. On those grounds, it seems as though Jake Singer is the perfect pairing for the brand; a fledgling photographer whose eye for the offbeat has defined his work as a photographer and artist. Throw in the striking Sanele Xaba into the mix and you’ve got an impressive result – harsh colours, found objects and some enviable menswear. Very nice. Check out more from Jake here. via 10and5.

Revolutions On Air: The Golden Era of New York Radio 1980 – 1988

Here’s a solid little documentary from Red Bull Music Academy to make your Friday just a little shorter. We forget just how influential radio was before the internet dominated every part of our listening lives, and even before TV took a big hold of musical influence. Revolutions On Air: The Golden Era of New York Radio highlights the game-changing time period of NYC radio during the 1980s where the street began to dictate to the radio, rather than the radio infiltrating the streets. Mix show legends like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red... Read more

New Trailer. Dope (with A$AP Rocky)

A$AP Rocky’s feature film debut doesn’t look qwful. In fact, it probably promises to be pretty entertaining. Debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the official trailer for the movie is now out featuring Shameik Moore, Zoe Kravitz, Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, and Blake Anderson. A high school kids navigates life in a tough neighbourhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. ‘A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.’ The films backed...

An Unordinary Exhibition by 10and5

Our friends over at 10and5 are throwing something special next week; a group photography show titled Unordinary, opening at the first ever Good Night Market at the V&A Waterfront’s design hub, the Watershed. Showcasing some of our young, local favourites, the exhibition features ‘photographers with unique perspectives whose work presents the world in an unconventional way.’ Whether through unusual angles or unexpected subject matter, scenes of the everyday are transformed, while remaining intrinsically South African. In other instances, scenes that may seem unremarkable are given relevance through the photographer’s lens, and we’re given a second chance to enjoy the easily-missed... Read more

Game of Cronies

ZA News doesn’t always get it right, but when they do, they hit the nail on the head. They couldn’t resist getting caught up in the Game of Thrones mania that’s been sweeping the internet since the first four episodes of Season 5 leaked, setting a new record for online piracy, with illegal downloads of the first four leaked episodes, the A Day In The Life on-set documentary and ripped versions of the broadcasts topping 32 million in just the first week. Playing on the South African political landscape (as per usual), the short features prominent politicians vying for the... Read more

House of Cinnamon AW15

You can’t deny that the Kent Andreasen touch brings the magic every time. Once again applied to the House Of Cinnamon, he’s shot their Autumn/Winter ranger for the upcoming season, following on from the beautiful job he did on their SS14 range.
