  • Montreal DJ and Producer Shash'U has released yet another visually appealing music video, this time for his single "Ur Body".  The track is off his ‘80s-inspired PWRFNK EP in which we have covered in his full interview piece as soon as it came out. Putting a playfully creepy spin on his roots in the professional street dance world, this body part-swapping clip directed by William Fradette takes viewers to “the lab” for real. A modern-day wink at the ol' fashion Frankenstein story, but with a...
  • Era Istrefi is an Albanian Kosovar singer-songwriter. She rose to fame after releasing her debut single "Mani për money" in 2013, and she's definitely caught our attention with her latest music video for "Bonbon" which you can watch above.  Although you might not comprehend the lyrics, the whole thing will definitely be easy to digest as it is very similar to any good pop hit that could potentially play at the club. The beat which was produced by Cricket, BigBang & Toton is strong. It's...

  • For the third season now, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol Footwear collection has gotten us fiending for its release on February 15th. This new collection, and on-going collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation features two of Warhol’s iconic pieces from the 1960’s - the Andy Warhol Cow wallpaper and Flowers in two options.  The bold contrast between the dark and the light gives these pairs of low tops and hi tops an even cooler complection under blacklights.

  • “Man braids” are apparently the newest trend that will hit the heads of menfolk this year. I’m sure their braids will look pair so well with other trends like beard baubles, mustache glitter, and whatever other Pinterest-fueled fad that looks more fun than practical. Beyond the fact that braids can’t be a new trend (cough cornrows cough), my main annoyance is with the name. Man-braids. Man. Braids. MAN. BRAIDS. It follows the same formula as the "man-bun". Adding 'man' in front of it is...
  • Everyone and their mothers seem to be starting their own clothing lines nowadays. Not that we're complaining, but it seems a bit redundant and hard at times, because you have to look for stuff all over the place, which doesnt make any of the experiences easy to keep up with. This is why we're excited about the new Sad Boys Entertainment clothing platform. Yung Lean and his posse are launching a brand new collective where you'll be able to find local Swedish and international brands alike and...

The Grind

  • Take some time-off complaining from the cold weather and enjoy a little bit of beauty from Montreal.

Utilizing the trend of tilt shift photography, Joerg Daiber shot these stunning visuals in various spots incuding the Old Port, the Olympic Stadium and showcasing great views from Mount Royal in 3 adorable minutes. With the tilt shift process, Montreal...
  • The Hangover. A morning consisting of a fuzzy, fried and foolish brain. I shamefully walk into work (after the guy whose face or name I can’t even remember drops me off) and reminisce on the one night stand the night before. Where are my undies? Well fuck. Where's my phone? In the pool. Where's my dignity? Lost.  drank. Staring at the remnants of the kebab and goon and Vodka and Baileys and every other alcohol mixed to mankind infused vomit on my shoe, along...
  • In Canada, it is inevitable to say that the national dish (dare we say Traditional?) is the infamous Poutine. The French-Canadian dish which puts fries, gravy and cheese curds together in one bowl is widely-known to be the go-to meal if ever you are visiting Montreal or any other place in Canada.  One thing is for sure: poutine was born in rural Quebec in the 1950’s - To celebrate its long-existence, Montreal tends to host "La Poutine Week" on various occasions, where restaurants jump in to...
