Remixed

Cola White is back on our radar with their latest drop, "Dr Dre Compton Genocide Remix" - a collaboration with Ackrite & Ink Monstarr. You might remember this mystery of an artist back from our #BornToCreate campaign, where we were all wondering, who is Cola White, always? Nothing like an unresolved mystery.. Check out their hit, and stay tuned for more SRP hotness!

Insane

Taking on Boston with a storm, Alex Moccia's (AY) most recent work with SRP producer, WajuBeats, is a true expression of rage, love and insanity. Hard and raw, this EDM track is one to share! We can't wait to see what AY brings next.

Feelin it

3326645928

Reminiscent of a Swedish Nicki Minaj, Joy M'Batha is blowing away the Scandinavian rap-arena. About two months ago she came out with her latest release "Gladjeflickan", and has also recently been featured in many mainstream Swedish publications. But what's the buzz really about? Is it her funky choice in style, her darker past (very apparent in her lyrics) or could it be her flow - raw, real and rough? We can't wait to hear more from this new Swedish rap diva.

Gone With the Rising Sun

Can love be a monster? Can it captivate you in a way that you eventually feel the only option left is to pick up all your stuff and leave? Does love ultimately help us look out for no one but ourselves? All these questions are vividly painted in the lyrics of Gone With the Rising Sun, written and sung by Alex Moccia, produced by SRP's very own WajuBeats. The inspiration behind the production of this beat came from romance drama, "The Fault in Our Stars". Moccia's powerful voice brings it to a different dimension. The final product is the complete package - we are proud and excited to release this heartfelt hit. Take a listen and if you feel what we feel - share it with your friends and followers!

Touching upon timelessness and universality, Kanye West together with Adidas Originals released their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection during this season's NYFW. We love how each individual piece speaks for itself - allowing for endless combinations, as Mr. West himself puts it: the world's first "solution-based" clothing line. Creativity for everyone - contemporary, yet minimal and basic. What do you think?

Climbing to the top

0da682547a0e3a5c6741b0bb75b18e29 While trying to stay out of the winter cold, we had the great fortune of meeting Yulia, founder of ArtCase Production, to learn a little more about their exclusive hand painted prints, the persona behind ArtCase, and what the future might look like.

With a love for freedom, adventures and, believe it or not: mountains, Yulia started up ArtCase years ago, without any scholarly or professionally trained background. The mission has always been to get as close as possible to the customers' dream t-shirt or sweatshirt. ArtCase represents all that is unique, free and original, and Yulia proudly speaks of the limitless:

Imagination and creativity are endless, so I will say that our goal is to go into your head, understand what you want and make it look greater than you can imagine.

A lot of the inspiration comes from the hip-hop culture, graffiti and street art, but Yulia also finds here artistic vision being influenced by nature. She explains that sometimes all you need is a breath of nature, to escape the city, and the inspiration comes flowing by itself. Although, for Yulia, there is no greater source of motivation than people, people falling in love with the art that she creates, happy people.

My favourite part is when you are concentrated on the idea, brush, paints and material at the same time, seems like nothing exist, just this moment and you are so much into it. And I love to find a color solution for the work, gradients, shadows etc. And the best feeling is when customers are happy with their clothes of course.

We have all been very curious to hear in what direction ArtCase will go next. Although they already are shipping their production worldwide, and currently working mostly online and through their social networks, they are looking to move in the direction of selling in stores in Paris as well, to find new and exciting customers.

Here is a sneak peek of some of ArtCase's pieces from their latest winter collection. Which one is your favourite?

Sundays with city of the sun

I don't know about you, but to the SRP team, Sundays can have the most creative vibe to them, or they turn out to be dull days that never seem to end. To keep the beat going, this Sunday we are tuning into City of the Sun - three guys turning acoustic instrumentals into mesmerizing and inspiring melodies. Formed in NYC at the onset of the Twenty Tens, the instrumental trio has blazed a trail through NYC playing everywhere from street corners, to artist lofts, to galleries and traditional venues, to traveling the world for exclusive TEDx showcases. Scroll down to check out their latest track "Everything". tumblr_nd5t2yeNNX1ruyafno1_1280.png tumblr_ndsxcmRGkt1ruyafno1_1280 tumblr_ndsxcmRGkt1ruyafno2_1280 tumblr_nduxzpcP1C1ruyafno2_1280

Cola White is Born to Create

Once you hear the name "Cola White" you will most likely never forget it. This talented LA Hip Hop artist is challenging the norms of - not only the music industry - but also the world of pop culture we live in today. With "The White Project" recently released this October, Cola White introduces us to her unconventional, raw and intense style.

"Everyone isn't going to love me and I'm okay with that. I live in my world and I understand that everyone doesn't want to live there. But for those who do, we are going to have a fucking amazing time"

ColaWahite

So who is Cola White? The beauty and artistry of it is that we might never know.

"Image is now larger than the music itself. As an artist you can be awful from a musical point of view, but if your image, affiliation, or appearance is what the masses accept, well then, you are golden"

To rebel against this norm, Cola White has chosen to keep her identity concealed. Hence the hashtag #IAMNOTCOLAWHITE. There is something to be admired in an artist that wants genuine and loyal fans based on the music and message delivered, and the on the image or appearance. It is clear that Cola White is not only born to create, but also born to impact.

For more Cola White, check out their newly debuted video "Inner Push" on the YouTube page of BLKDMNDS!

Rooftop Celebrations

The party was in light of Saada's birthday, with entertainment and exclusive shows from Janelle Monae, Chef Roble, DJ Moma, Wondaland, and many more. The day could not have been more perfect for a brunch party. Not only was the vibe and music inspiring, so were the people, in all colors and fashion. For more upcoming fun - check out @EVERYDAYPPLNYC on Twitter!

Sitting at a small café on the Upper East side, we are excited to share with you some of the events from this weekend. Friday night our SRP producer went to an underground event on the Lower East side with the great Boogie V. A spontaneous night with fireworks, great people and great music..

Yesterday was spent in the one and only Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you haven't already visited "the burg", and you are in the New York City area, I strongly suggest that you do. The Smorgasburg, poppin every Saturday from noon-6pm by the East River, followed by Gorbals Roof top bar, was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Limelight

So what really makes someone famous? And who determines what fame is...? Those are some recent thoughts that have me pondering lately. All the while, I watch the StreetRacer producers work harder than ever: produce and create great content, make connections and reach out to the people, to you guys. But what really is it that decides who makes it and who doesn't?

Living and working in the heart of New York, you end up seeing famous people quite often. The hysteria surrounding celebrities is quite remarkable. I can't help but question if fame = talent? Or if it's all just a facade.. Well, there has to be some talent in there, but maybe with a larger scoop of luck?  I'm curious to hear what you think about fame. Share your thoughts!
