SPITGAN PREMIERE : FUTUREWAVE X DANIEL SON, BEETLEJUICE


By Jordan C.

Toronto production duo The Lost Info (Futurewave & Ol Man 80zz) have been on the scene for a minute but it wasn’t until they started working with lyricists Daniel Son and Asun Eastwood that they popped up on our radar. While they dropped a full album with Brooklyn’s Justo The MC and Futurewave handled a whole project for Atlanta’s Heem Stogied last year, it was their work with buzzing emcees from their own city that shined the most. “Summer’s Fuckin Over” and “Vinyl Dust Blunts” off Asun Eastwood’s Hollywood Briggs album (both of which feature Daniel Son) displayed the kind of rich production that leaves a lasting impression. Then at the end of January, Daniel Son hit ‘em in the head with a Futurewave banger titled “Trust The Process” that had heads excited for what else these two have planned for 2018.

Well, today SPITGAN is proud to premiere the video for “Beetlejuice.” This joint is the official single off Futurewave’s upcoming producer album Wav.God, which also features tracks with Hus Kingpin, Nowaah the Flood, Heem Stogied, Justo The MC, plus an epic posse cut with Asun Eastwood, Recognize Ali, Flashius Clayton, and J Scienide.

The beat on “Beetlejuice” is mostly just a deep groove bass line and downtempo drums, but once in a while a heavily filtered vocal sample creeps in. With so much room to get loose, Son gets on his “Bakaow” shit and caves in the competition’s head. When he says, “Went to Venezuela just to buy me these Tims / that Ralph stay on me like a Siamese Twin,” we grinned so hard it almost hurt our cheeks. As if the combination of Futurewave and DS wasn’t a potent enough mixture, they get together once again with Mercenary Productions for some fire visuals. With convulsive camera work and wavy effects this video aims to recreate an acid trip Daniel Son experienced. Warning: This may trigger flashbacks for those that have done too many hallucinogens.

Wav.God drops on March 1st but pre-orders are up now at: Lostinfomusic.com

繼續第一部份 Read PT1 HERE. English below >>

不過The World is your Oyster 和Dynasti絕對適合這個又年輕又活潑的表演場地。由其The World is Your Oyster即場穿衣換衫的表演,幾個男女Model以最日常生活方式展現服裝。就像在家中看書、發呆,但你完全不會覺到沉悶,因為每個動作的改變,都正好展示出衣服的不同細節和特色。睇到一半FFFRIDAY的貴賓F5突然走入觀眾席,謀殺了不少菲林。好像連外星朋友都來支持香港時裝了!之後Dynasti的表演配合了一段動畫,讓他的那種年少輕狂更加強烈。而且他們選用一堆比較看起來冷艷的model,可以說是把品牌特色完全呈現出來。

唯一要挑剔是上到藝穗會的表演好混亂。3個品牌同時進行,真系「睇到一個望吾到另一個」,結果3個表演都不能專心欣賞。不過如此創意的時裝發佈確實告訴了我們,香港時裝開始大膽起來了!可能下次First Look 我會扮怪獸嚇下大家!哈哈!

What an amazing location, The Game Centre! This arcade, an energetic and youthful location, definitely suited The World is Your Oyster, and Dynasti’s image. I loved The World Is Your Oyster’s show. Models changing there outfits right in front of you, lacadaiscally posing like they were in a daze, or reading at home. Straight chillin’. Goin’ through the motions of daily life but showing all details of the clothes and styles. Right in the middle of the presentation, BOOM! The towering presence of supa-VIP, F5, appears! This furry cousin of the abominable snowman cannot be missed. What a cutie! Aliens from space are down with HK fashion! Dynasti follows in the same place. They present an animated video with their show, and make the young and frivolous atmosphere more intense. They girls lookin’ sexy as F too! The girls be, WERKIN IT, stayin true to the brand character.

I ain’t down with the Game Centre to Fringe Club set up though. Is the show over? We head up to The Fringe Club and the first show is caput! Then 3 shows start at the same time?! Aw snap, whiplash. Work it out team. I mighta missed some very good moments here, but this effort is really bringing life and creativity back to HK fashion. Dare to be! Maybe next time I can do some Cos-Play at FIRSTLOOK! Salute.

FFFRIDAY 2017 PT1

如果你以爲香港時裝只有Centrestage和那些正正常常的時裝表演,那你已經落後了。Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF) 帶來了一個新東西叫FFFRIDAY,他不是一個什麼Fashion Week,對我更像一個藝術展覽。6個本地品牌都以最切合他們性格的表達方式展示他們最新一季的作品,品牌包括The World Is Your Oyster、Dynasti、Matter Matters、Reo Ma、Curtis Li Studio及KenaxLeung。一日6個品牌,12場表演,確實好趕。加上他們在中環的創聲遊戲機中心和藝穗會兩個地方舉行,行程可以話十分緊湊。
在Game Centre行Fashion Show的確有趣,不過也多了不少細節需要留意。例如每部遊戲機的音樂令表演音樂十分混亂、空間安排也不盡太好。

—下一部分繼續

If you think Hong Kong fashion only has Centerstage, FIRSTLOOK, and some random, one-off runway offerings, well you just aren’t in the know anymore! Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF) introduces an new event to us, they’ve named FFFRIDAY! This is not a so-called fashion week, it’s more like an ‘art’ show, a fashion art show. Six local brands presented their latest collections with individual themes. These brands included: The World is Your Oyster, Dynasti, Matter Matters, Reo Ma, Curtis Li Studio and KenaxLeung, dividing 12 showtimes in a one day schedule; busy by any standard of fashion week. This was compounded by the fact that they separated the slate of shows between the Central Game Centre and The Fringe Club. With already great confusion to the FFFRIDAY schedule itself, this made for a very rushed run to catch the presentations! You say we don’t work? Despite this, the fashion show in the Game Centre was really interesting, I found it to be a very new experience for Hong Kong. It was hard to control certain elements of the show like the music, and space arrangement but the energy and audacity were more than enough to compensate for these deficiencies.
