Nike Air Max 90 Mowabb & Air Max 1 Safari

'Holy retro runners, Batman!' is what Dick Grayson would most likely be saying if he was into 90's sneakers.

Supposedly set for a June 27th release, these classic runners get given the Mowabb & Safari treatment. You simply cannot hate on these. Period.

Whilst the Air Max 1 Safari has some big differences in colourway to the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 B's that came out a few years back, they're still dope, and also a reasonable substitute for people like myself who missed out first time round.

My boy Gio is gonna be surpised, as he's just recently forked out for a pair of these.

Well done Nike! Now all you need to do is re-release the Infared Air Max 90s....

Touchscreen Turntables (Video)

Final Product // ATTIGO TT from Scott Hobbs on Vimeo.

Looks interesting. I can't really see it taking off immediately, but if one was to incorporate that idea with video, or incorporate MIDI (like the Jazz Mutant Lemur - though they both look pretty similar), it could open up some more doors with digital DJ-ing!

Peep the interview with Scott Hobbs, who made the thing here

DJ One 'Da Spring Bling' Mixtape (Download)

The main things that are lacking in todays mixtapes are energy, good track selection, scratching...oh....and mixing!

However, this new mixtape from DJ One has all of that. A nice breath of fresh air, as there's too many DJs shouting and talking over mixtapes these days....

Representing Sure Shotz Entertainment, straight outta Skopje, Macedonia - he's put together a nice mix of current/recent spring and summer tracks that are great for bumping in the car, or putting on before going out to the club. Nice to see classic club joints from the likes of Joe Budden on there too....


01. Freeway Feat. 50 Cent - Take It To The Top
02. Nicole Sherzinger Feat. T.I. - Whatever You Like
03. Chris Brown - Wall To Wall
04. Justin TImberlake - Summer Love
05. MIMS - Like This
06. Timbaland Feat. Keri Hilson & Nicole Sherzinger - Scream
07. Q-Tip - Work It Out
08. Missy Elliott - Ching A Ling
09. Kanye West - Stronger
10. Eve Feat. Jay-Z - Tambourine
11. Joe Budden - Pump It Up
12. Lumidee Feat. Pitbull - Crazy
13. Lil Mama Feat. Chris Brown & T-Pain - Shawty Get Loose
14. Madonna Feat. Justin Timberlake - 4 Minutes
15. Janet Jackson - Feedback
16. Timbaland - The Way I Are
17. Flo Rida Feat. Timbaland - Elevator
18. Justin Timberlake - Lovestoned
19. Kat DeLuna Feat. Elephant Man - Whine Up
20. Machel Montano Feat. Pitbull & Lil Jon - Defense (The Anthem)
21. DJ Laz Feat. Pitbull & Diaz Bros - Move Shake & Drop
22. Flo Rida Feat. T-Pain - Low

Overall - A hot mixtape, with a dope selection of club joints, mixed and cut up nicely.

Blackberry Bold (aka Blackberry 9000)

'Oh boy!' as Dr. Sam Beckett would say....

The latest Blackberry has been unveiled, and it's definitely been worth the wait!

It seems that the operating software has seen some new developments, as well as a whole bunch of improvements, including WiFi, HSPDA, GPS, Bluetooth, and the memory. The Bold/9000 now comes with 1GB internal memory(!!!!!!!!!) for storage, and has 128MB Flash memory for applications - All upgradable. Like the Blackberry Curve, the Bold also has a built-in 2 mega pixel camera, with 5x digital zoom and flash.

What's really exciting is the improvements to the media player. This time, video support includes DivX 4, whilst Div X 5 & 6 are partially supported. XviD is partially supported. As for the audio - .3gp, MP3, WMA9 (.wma/.asf), WMA9 Pro/WMA 10, MIDI, AMR-NB, Professional AAC/AAC+/eAAC+ is supported. Even better, BlackBerry Media Sync allows you to transfer your desktop iTunes music to your BlackBerry!

Anyone who has a Blackberry swears by them (myself included) - the whole operating system is simple to use, and it's reliable. Yeh, the iPhone is nice to play with, and looks dope, but do they really think they can get the business phone market on lock?

I'm due for an upgrade this summer, and am hoping that T-Mobile will get this in time.

Nike Dunk High Octagon Pixel Pack

Seriously, what the f**k?!

I'm all for interesting colourways on sneakers - but why do Nike have to go and ruin a decent shoe by coming up with crap concepts such as this?!

Bascially, this pack consists of one-piece dunks, with a series of pixels forming the swoosh and the uppers. Apparently they're octogon-shaped pixels, and whole 'number 8' theme is in there to coincide with the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and because the number 8 is a symbol of large significance indicating prosperity.

If you're gonna incorporate the whole lucky number thing into a shoe, at least do it in a way that doesn't make the finished product resemble something that looks like a rejected prop from the movie Tron.

Saying that, it doesn't steal the title of 'Worst Dunk Ever'. The '3 Bears' pack wins that shit hands down.
