WE ARE… Getting Wavvy

On my New York rapper bender this week, I bring you – MYKKI BLANCO aka Michael David Quattlebaum, Jr.

If you haven’t heard of one or the other, no fear. Either facet of the same person will be taking over a cultural media outlet near you anytime soon – Micheal/Mykki is one of those multi-talented artistes. An all-encompassing poet, rapper, actor, author and wildly frenetic multimedia performance artist, she came to my attention as Mykki Blanco – the pretty girl in a boys body who has epic flow, a keen fashion sense and the most adorable personality (that I can assume from the video blogs I stalk!)

She has proven herself as an artist, a published poet, and her music speaks for itself. Terry Richardson himself chose her to be a part of the campaign he shot for Happy Socks, along with model Ashley Smith and A$AP Rocky.

Not convinced? Do yourself a favour and watch the Francesco Carrozzini (stunningly!) directed video below of her track Wavvy, check out the fascinating read that is her interview with Alex Chapman for Interview magazine, or fill your ears with even more sharp flow by following here to Mykki’s soundcloud.

WE ARE… Loving Le1f

I make no denials about my musical obsession; especially when it often extends to hours getting lost in YouTube watching video’s of my favourite artists.

 

While my friends could (and will if you let them!) wax lyrical about my YouTube spirals, at least here in this little corner of the interwebs I bring you only the best.

 

On this weeks rotation is some serious rap music. Specifically from New York. I don’t know if it’s something in the water/air/pollution but there are some astronomically talented young musicians making the music they want. Enter Le1f (real name Khalif Diouf) – if you haven’t heard his epic tune “Wut” ANYWHERE EVER BEFORE, then I suggest you get your ears checked, then step out from under that rock you’ve been living under. Not only does the track have a feet-tingling catchy beat, but Le1f barely needs the back up dancers in the clip. Check out the booty-shakin, vogue-inspired moves now, and if you like what you see check out Le1f’s soundcloud for his full Dark York mixtape.

 

 

You’re welcome.

We Are… Digging The Doodles

Penis jokes aside, I happened to stumble across an artist by the name of David Jablow the other week. His current project, do it yourself Doodler combines several of my favourite things; a suggestive pin-up girl, vintage aesthetics, and detailed creativity!

A few years back, Jablow was given a vintage “do it yourself doodle” pad with a suggestive outline of a seemingly nude woman on her hands and knees with mouth, chest and bum left blank for the doodler to fill in their own masterpiece. Jablow drew what anyone would draw: a giant radioactive archaeopteryx brandishing its terror-stricken human prey over the shrieking maws of its triple-headed baby. Several masterpieces later, Jablow’s detailed doodles have featured mermaids, ninjas, angels and devils, mud fights, bar brawls, giant robots and football scrums among many others.

His doodles have made Jablow into one of those “internet sensations”. Get in on the hype and be one of the cool kids by buying his book. Or check out his tumblr and witness his new project unfold suggestive doodle by suggestive doodle!

WE ARE… Hearing Visions

At Life Dishevelled HQ, the blogging might have slowed down but we sure as shit haven’t! New jobs, new homes and new crazy schedules have meant our culture carrier pigeon has been kept in her coop for longer than anticipated.

 

Never fear though. The Australian Summer is fast approaching and the cultural scene is heating up (see what i did there!)

 

I have made an executive decision that sleep is no longer a priority and sharing the awesome is. As such I have a banging tune to kickstart your weekend. Wordlife is the beardy-man duo of Kato and Adam Bozzetto, two Sydney producers who have been creating epic tunes and keeping dancefloors alive on their onesies for years. Combined they create epic tunes to the power of awesome – Exhibit A; Visions, their newest single released today on Motorik! records.

 

Take a gander at the clip created by Negative Films, and give your ear-balls a good going-over to get the weekend happening…

 

Check out Wordlife’s soundcloud for more.
