The Container Yard LA
November 24, 2014

We had the pleasure of visiting The Container Yard in downtown Los Angeles today. This compound was nestled on 4th street near the heart of little Tokyo. From outside, one can assume that the interior of this building would have a bit of street art and graffiti, but once inside that assumption becomes reality tenfold.

Never really open to the public, this compound serves as many things to the art community. It hosts art shows, pop up shops, along with other various events. What brought us here was The Beat Swap Meet. The container yard will serve as the new home for this seasons Beat Swap Meet. BSM was kind enough to offer us a tour of BSM’s new home. Every step was greeted by some piece of art. Every wall and container side was home to extremely good art! Many Angelinos have probably driven down this street many times, and never would have never been able to guess how amazing the inside of this place is.

The container yard will be open to the public for the first time this Beat Swap Meet on December 14th. Everyone should come out and witness this space, and the wonderful event it’s hosting. The Beat Swap Meet is always a good day for our Culture! Believe that all elements will be represented correctly. We are hosting the Scratch/Cut session once again, and will also be having a POP up shop with our full upcoming holiday collection available for purchase!

Beat Swap Meet – OC
/ November 5, 2014

This past Saturday we were at Beat Swap Meet OC. We had the pleasure of hosting a scratch session at the event. This event is always a good time, and we thank the Beat Swap Meet OC for allowing our presence. This event continues to grow, and it’s good to see vinyl culture being preserved and cultivated throughout the United States. Shout out to Robby and the BSM crew for putting together another successful event. We look forward to seeing details on the next one. We thank everyone that made it out to our booths to scratch, purchase merchandise, or say hello. It’s always nice seeing familiar faces when beat swap meet comes around. Thanks to Jawa for hosting, and DMC World Supremacy Champion DJ IFTW for joining us, and holding it down during the day.

Digging through the heat BSM LA
/ September 15, 2014

    In Chinatown yesterday, the 26th Edition of Beat Swap Meet went down. It was a good day for Vinyl Record culture. The blistering Los Angeles heat didn’t seem to affect all the collectors and enthusiasts that made it out. Sellers kept their collections cool from warping with tarps, and buyers didn’t mind sweating it out while digging for treasures.

    We thank everyone that made it out to the scratch session we hosted. Hopefully the weather for the next one will be more favorable. Beat Swap Meet is always a great event and good time. Always nice seeing our culture preserved and introduced to newer generations. If you didn’t make it down this time, see you at the next one!

    FERGUSON…
    / August 18, 2014

    LA-Riots[2]Pay no attention to the actual shirt posted, only focus on its message. We are not trying to sell to you; we just want to take some time to speak on its message. Our La Riots design from our summer collection was released to serve as a reminder that injustice is still occurring constantly, and that we must open our eyes and realize that things haven’t improved. We wanted everyone to know that events like this can reoccur at anytime since the main problem has not been cured. It has only been hidden, and overlooked due to distractions we are given and fed constantly. Unfortunate and extremely sad, the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri are an example of the message we were trying get across to our supporters through our LA Riot concept. It only takes one spark to ignite the rage of a city. That rage then fuels the rest of the country as you may have seen. Rioting and destruction begins, following an appearance of martial law. The government is now forced to take responsibility and attempt to mend things. Note that we say, “mend”. The fix is only temporary. It’s like putting duck tape over a leaky hose. The hose will continue to leak again slowly, or eventually burst with too much pressure. We need to realize that nothing has been fully repaired. This is the state our country has been in for a very long time. The only way for things to improve is if justice is given regularly in situations big or small, and things like this are kept transparent. Nothing to hide, no blame, just people doing good for humanity rather than acting with ignorance and instilled hatred. Hopefully justice will be served and given to the nation, and most importantly to Michael Brown. When things settle, please continue to seek justice. Not by Rioting or violence, but from discussion and constant inquiry. Don’t accept what you are told, because most of the time they are not fully true.
