FLüD Watches and Village Slum have teamed up for a special 2013 calender collaboration with adult film star Lisa Ann. Photographed and directed by Mel D. Cole, the project illustrates many different avenues of athletics, lifestyles and real life translations. Take a look at some behind-the-scenes footages and a couple of the pages after the jump.
The Hieroglyphics crew linked up with FLuD Watches to release a limited edition wrist clock (available now). Hit the jump for a few product shots and check the clip up top for a “Meet The Crew” style introduction with Phesto, Del the Funky Homosapien and Tajai.
DJ Nu-Mark is next up in the latest installment of FLuD Watches’ Beats Per Minute video series.
In this episode, DJ Nu-Mark (of Jurassic 5 acclaim) talks about his years of record collecting, the positive and negative effects of new technology, the freedom he now has as a producer outside of a group setting, while finishing up the video with his trademark rubber band trick using the tone arm of a turntable. Nu-Mark is truly one of the most creative DJ/Producers in the game, which he showcases during his DJ sets as he incorporates various toys and tricks to separate himself from the rest. In addition, a lot of folks sleep on Nu-Mark (including Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow) as one of the first producers to perform live on the MPC, which he showcased years ago for Mochilla’s Keepintime live show in 2002 at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.
Nu-Mark is also preparing the release of his album, Broken Sunlight, dropping this Fall.
As Mek stated a little while back, Exile recently teamed up with Dirty Science the good folks at FLüD Watches for an exclusive “Radio” Boombox Watch (as well as a mixtape). Well now, we’ve got one to give away to one lucky dopeboy/girl. All you’ve gotta do is drop a line in the c-section with your favorite Exile-produced cut (and be sure to include a correct email in the proper field). For those wanting to skip the contest and just support, you can head here and get your purchase game on.
Digiwaxx caught up with the folks behind the rising brand FLüd Watches during their press event for their Winter line and spoke on the origins of the company, show off some of their products and speak on how watches are more than just timepieces.
FLuD Presents… is an interview series conducted by the good folks at FLuD Watches. The series is a bit unconventional in that we explore the HOW of an artist’s work and not the conventional “WHY” (i.e: why did you chose music? why this song? this beat? this producer? blah blah blah). We figured that those types of interviews you can read pretty much everywhere, so lets shoot for a different angle. The HOW angle. Still not following? Click on the video and peep game…
So the NMC’s eskay, Cookin’ Soul and FLüd Watches have all joined forces to create this new mixtape called 1:00AM And Rising, a dope project consisting of 12 tracks corresponding with each hour on the clock. Check out esk’s explanation on the whole thing here, and check out the official cover art for it down below.
The good folks at Cookin’ Soul have teamed up with eskay and co. of the NMC for something esk only refers to as “coming soon.” Meanwhile, I need to find a way to finagle a boombox and/or turntable Flüd watch into my possession. Those joints are dopeness.
World premier of the official video for Slaughterhouse’s remix of Joell’s Move On. The Kickdrums on the beat, directed by John Colombo. Speaking of the Slaughterhouse crew, they’ll be in SoCal this weekend for Paid Dues 2009! And to commemorate the event, the good folks at FLüD Watches put together a nice little time piece. Hit the jump for the look…
Last week I attended the Magic Convention (google it if you think it’s about disappearing tricks and bunnies). I met up with my man J. Kim, who in turn introduced me to Doug & Mel over at FLüD Watches. They we’re gracious enough to drop me off a watch of my choice (which I’ve shown below) so the least I could do was let ya’ll know about a dope watch company that’s based out of NY. You can also expect a contest soon enough between us and them. Let’s go!
