Last October, some of the Rick & Ray squad met up with TEAM MANILA/DAILY GRIND CLOTHING for a LA photoshoot. Here are some of the images they sent us (featuring Glen Exaktoh, KreativeThought, Martin Fabros, Shelly Samia, Wella Angeles, and Tricia Jamanila).
Stay tuned for future projects involving the Philippines based streetwear brands. Peace to owners Jowee and Mon for the photos!
Let me bring you up to speed: SESSIONS is a program in Los Angeles that teaches youth and young adults music writing, production, recording, and DJing. Their mission is to promote development, nurture critical thinking, and foster community building through the process of creating music. SESSIONS currently needs financial help in order to continue into 2013. Before we get into the collaborative event that we are detailing, we need to say that we are 100% in support of SESSIONS and hope you are, too. For many reasons, those kids may not have outlets to chase a dream but SESSIONS is there to help. And even if they haven’t quite figured out what they’d like to do with music, there are genuinely good people involved in the program to help them think it through. We want to see them continue for many more years.
So we have come together to throw a fundraiser. We are developing an event that will involve a beat contest and performances. You’ll know full details by the first of next month. In the meantime, please mark Thursday, December 27 on your calendar.
Now onto the food at Los Molcajetes. Check out the size of those pupusas, tho!
The aftermath. None of us could finish our food. No wonder why Ali and Phat only ordered one!
Around this time last year, the Rick & Ray squad was reeling off the release of our producer, Garfield Adams’, LP, 1st Things First. If you haven’t picked up this piece of art, please do so! http://garfieldadams.bandcamp.com/album/1st-things-first
