Dr. Martens celebrates 50 years today by creating covers + videos of cult classic tracks with music videos released today by contemporary artists DaM-FunK, Noisettes, & The Duke Spirit.
More videos to come by remaining artists: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Cinematic Orchestra, N.A.S.A., Buraka Som Sistema, The Raveonettes, MC5 & DOA, and Verbal.
My friend D.Mo and I just finished a mix for Noncollective: a growing family of mixtapes with psychedelia, disco and rock as somewhat of an underlying theme. Memos In Absentia is our first joint venture and is amongst a tasteful collection of mixes from other special guests.
Memos In Absentia
Energy settles within energies into forms until you are born. As other forms multiply before you, your inner formlessness grows quietly. More and more until friction drops its spark, giving birth to emotions. Accruing, like blossoms and clouds, like a balloon bouquet that shapes and colors our pasts. But when air gives way to wind, ripples to waves, smoke to blaze and land to sediment, we see others laid to rest. And we release balloons, one by one, as those gone show us eternity’s perfection lies not in the forms of yesterday or tomorrow. Only in the form of change when moving on.
