Music| Listen To Leon St. Heron x AbJo Present: Trilly & Truly

• Soulection’s own AbJo has been constantly blessing us with new music, and  this year alone he has two big releases dubbed “Break It Off” & “Heard, You Have“. He seems to be in a giving mood as he re-releases a collaboration project he did back in the summer of 2013 with San Diego native and good friend Leon St. Heron (aka Bam Circa ’86), entitled Trilly & Truly. The EP features some of my favorites tracks such as “Truly“, “JUST.CREW.SHIT“, &  of course “SOUFCA.RISING“.

 Leon St. Heron is a new artist on our radar but as soon as this EP begins we can tell he s the kind of artist that will be blaring out of our headquarter speakers the remainder of the day. Very lyrical and host a flow that intrigues all your rapper spider scenes. Come from the west coast he presents a universal style. The young artist even touches on some very serious subjects such as being African American in America and the trails that are faced.

AbJo has a few events coming soon, so check out the list below along with the full 8-track EP.


Fashion| ASICS Gel Lyte ”Valentine’s Day” Pack

• The pressure to give into the usual gimmicks standardized by what is quite possibly the most commercial holiday in modern existence (aka Valentine’s Day) has become, let’s face it, more than exhausted at this point. Sure, roses, a box of overpriced chocolates, and a reservation at that impossibly overrated restaurant are easy options that will prompt a sympathetic smirk from that significant other. But the common denominator amongst all of these offerings is that they are all temporary fixes. Luckily, for those looking to impress bae with something that’ll last longer than that digested piece of $80 overcooked filet mignon, ASICS has released a special edition of their Gel Lyte model – the 3 and 5 silhouettes respectively – in celebration of the romantic holiday.

Each makeup was inspired by two Valentine’s Day staples, roses (the Gel Lyte 5 ) and chocolate (the Gel Lyte 3), with the former featuring a red upper composed of mesh and suede and the latter  sporting a light beige hue with touches of brown on the toes, inner lining, and side panels. The pack will be released in February over at Korean retailer Kasina.

The individual elements in the system are designed to work in harmony, comprising four main pillars: length, layering, proportion and consistency. The goods take the form of the Nike Air Pivot Hoodie, Nike Air Reversible Pick-Up Game Short, Nike Air Long-Sleeve Pivot Tee, Nike Air Crossover Warm-Up Jacket, Nike Air AF1 Print Tee and Nike Air Crossover Warm-Up Pant. The Spring 2015 Nike Air collection is available now in stores and online.

Music| 5 Awesome Music Videos Worth Checking Out

• This week in music, Jane Jupiter drifts us away into a desert oasis, Charli XCX teams up with Rita Ora for a Tarantino-style road trip, and G-Eazy offers a video diary of what it’s like to be a Tumblr girl. Check below for our picks of the most interesting visual content in music that may have slipped under your radar this week.

Jane Jupiter x Chapman – “Stargazing”

Jane Jupiter, the alter ego of electronic rapper Kid Sister, has released a new video in collaboration with NYC recording artist Chapman. Evoking a soothing Sade atmosphere where crooning R&B vocals melt over an impeccably photographed desert landscape, the video’s title track is taken from the singer’s mixtape  DUSK2DAWN: The Diary Of Jane Jupiter.

G-Eazy – “Tumblr Girls”

Oakland rapper G-Eazy’s “Tumblr Girls” offers both a video and photo montage documenting the seemingly superficial lifestyle of the “Instagram model”. Minimal clothing, “artsy” filtering, and provocative posing provide substance for the video’s eye candy appeal, which also mimics the very notion as to what garners these models’ social media prominence.

Years & Years – “King”

British synthpop trio Years & Years are subjects to physical manipulation by a troupe of touchy feely dancers in their latest video for “King”, shot in the suburbs of LA.

Charli XCX – “Doing It” feat. Rita Ora

Charli XCX embarks on a road trip across the western American countryside complete with campy roadside attractions, sleazy motels, and flashy 70s getups. Accompanied by Rita Ora, the video’s punchy colors and B-movie aesthetics were inspired by the photographic works of David Lachapelle and films such as Natural Born Killers and Thelma and Louise.

Novelist x Mumdance – 1 Sec

Grime act Novelist releases a disorienting new video for the Mumdance-produced track “1 Sec”, which takes place around a gritty locale centered in a shady London neighborhood.
