Vin Sol hails from sunny California and calls himself a drum machine freak, vinyl creep and dance music otaku. Not the worst initial situation if one wants to produce clever dance music, right? And that’s exactly what Vin does. He has a new EP coming out on Unknown To The Unknown which is called “Edges Of A Vortex” and right here you can check out its title track! This is quite the surreal party starter, riddled with Chicago house references, which should get you geared up while you’re cannonballing along the French Riviera on your pink speed boat.
From hologram heels to hologram bags – accessories in the sic-fi look are this season’s must-haves. While brave fashionistas – and I’m thinking of the likes of Anna dell Russo – opt for a holographic head-to-toe look, I prefer the subtle approach. Meaning? Only one holographic highlight per outfit. Hologram accessories are the perfect way to give your look that little futuristic twist and make a subtle fashion statement. These two bags from the HUGO Summer 2013 Collection – which is out now – will instantly beam your look to space.
From outer space to your closet - holographic accessories are one major trend this season. The kaleidoscope of colors changes with every move creating a hypnotizing, futuristic sic-fi look. Very now and very HUGO. So give your wardrobe a fashion-forward spin with hologram heels from the HUGO Summer 2013 Collection – now available in stores.
Well people, what can we say… Here’s the new single of a man, born with a broken heart, who surely does not need an introduction: The UK’s own James Blake. And “Retrograde” is all we could have asked for.

Also make sure to check out Blake’s sophomore album “Overgrown”, because it is just as amazing.
Are you curious to hear what HUGO Fragrances ambassador Jared Leto has to say about the color “red”? Well, here’s another clip we shot with Jared behind the scenes at the HUGO Red TV commercial shoot. Enjoy!
Benedikt Frey is a jack-of-all-trades in musical regards: He’s a musician, disc jockey, sound student and label owner, hailing from Frankfurt, Germany. No matter what it is this prodigy lays his hands on: it will undoubtedly burst with dedication and sophistication. So it’s hardly a surprise he’d attract the attention of such renowned labels as LIVE AT ROBERT JOHNSON, where he released an impressive EP entitled “Running In Circles” last year. His newest coup is a “3 track album” on vinyl entitled “Delinquencies”, which comes into the world on Frey’s own imprint LOPUSURA. That’s an abbreviation for “love, pain, sunshine & rain”, and the label is meant to be a platform for “electronic music that is made for deep and trippy journeys”. And that’s exactly what the title track “Delinquencies” is: intelligently produced house music, that impresses with its numerous layers and facets. Stream the track right here, check out the hauntingly beautiful video below and try to catch this puppy on vinyl while you can![vimeo 60249835]
