intro by Jelena Drenjakovic

Italian DJ, producer and Endless record label head Luca Bacchetti has built a huge reputation on the strength of his production. His sonic soundscape oscillates between entrancing electronica and techno fully aligned by a particularly strong sense of melody and ambience. Apart from spreading his signature twists and musical turns through myriad productions and remixes, the past few years have seen the Italian rack up plenty of frequent flyer points, playing shows across the globe. Ahead of his upcoming gig at The Brooklyn Mirage and Burning Man, Luca Bacchetti gives us a taste of his broad sonic scenery with 5 EPs that traverse beautiful realms of sound whilst being hard to pin down to exact genre markers.


Max Loderbauer is back to lend his unique interpretive skills to the master recordings for the Brightbird album by João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Mário Franco and Samuel Rohrer. Loderbauer’s role as electronics operator in the similarly attuned Ambiq trio has already shown that, through his mastery of tone color, he has a talent for teasing out the additional hidden details within an apparently ‘complete’ sonic environment. It’s a task he manages to accomplish without ever overriding or contradicting the cohesive message provided by his collaborators.

Incredible Photos Of Celebrities Partying @ Studio 54

Getting into Studio 54 in the 1970s was a nearly impossible endeavor.
Marc Benecke, doorman for the disco club, would stand on a stepping stool and select club candidates from the crowd.
He compared this process to “mixing a salad.” Nevertheless, “54″ lured celebrities, socialites, athletes, and artists from around the globe.
Andy Warhol once said, “The key of the success of Studio 54 is that it’s a dictatorship at the door and a democracy on the dance floor.”
For the 40th anniversary of the club’s opening, giving you a peek at the lucky few (celebrities, of course) who actually made it inside.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK! Not just streetstyle fashion and impressive skyscrapers, but also the cinematographic set for the most beautiful movies of all time. Yes, because the Big Apple with its immense streets, its well-kept and huge parks, the Hudson River and its unique views, is one of the directors’ favorite locations. The environment and atmosphere can be very versatile, as the city served as ideal setting for romantic movies like Woody Allen’s Manhattan as well as lighter comedies like Sex and the City or international colossal of the likes of The Godfather or King Kong.

The Rise of Sneaker Culture, July 10 – October 4, 2015, Brooklyn Museum, NYC
A new show at the Brooklyn Museum, The Rise of Sneaker Culture, has been getting raves, mostly for its focus on the eighties, a particularly obsessive era for sneakerheads. The most notable of these seminal sneakers, among 150 pieces in all, are the Nike Air Jordan I (1985) and Reebok Pumps (1989). A marvel, too, are the Reebok x Chanel Insta Pump Fury, the 1997 collaboration between Chanel and Reebok that ranked among the first so-called high-low joint efforts, but which was never produced beyond the runway — thus extremely rare.
The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition to explore the complex social history and cultural significance of the footwear now worn by billions of people throughout the world.

1885, Fifth Avenue and 42 street
New York City, as well as the rest of the country, was a lot different at the turn of the century over 100 years ago.

The New York subway was just breaking ground, families were still fighting against child labor laws, and a measly 3 million people lived within city limits.
The “First Great Age” also gave the city many of its most beautiful buildings including the iconic Flatiron Building and the illustrious Grand Central Terminal.
Get swept away with these beautiful photos of the New York City of yesteryear, as seen in Stephen Braxton Thompson‘s New York City Views: Vintage Photography.

Photographs and text by Erica Simone

Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen bloomed from an initial questioning about clothing and its importance in society today.

Fashion acts as a language: it allow us to silently portray who we are or want to be, offering society an impression about us — whatever that may be.

Fashion also tends to segregate and place us into various social categories as well as communicate a certain mood or particular feeling. This tool is quite precious to civil society, and as most people, I naturally use clothing as a way of portraying my own image.

However, in a city like New York, the fashion industry has a massive impact: people often tend to be overly concerned with appearance and the materialistic side of it. This became very real for me while I was photographing Fashion Week a few years back. As I watched an image-absorbed union of people care more about the sales at Barney’s than the homeless people they stepped over on the street, I began to ponder: “What would the world feel like naked? What if we didn’t have clothing to portray who we want to be or feel as individuals? What if we couldn’t show off our social status to demand the treatment we wanted from others? What if all we had were our bodies?”
These questions raised many various issues and these issues raised many various questions.

From there, my photographic project was born. With a tripod and a couple ounces of adrenaline, I took to the streets bare to see what a typical New York day would be like.

At first, I wasn’t so sure what was going to happen or what was going to come of it all, but as the collection progressed, more and more issues became clear to me. For example: “Why can we be arrested for being naked in the street, when as human beings, we are born naked?” I can understand that it would be socially unacceptable or morally discouraged, but for it to be in some cases prohibited by law…? This all seemed quite bizarre and really more so a violation of human rights.

Another question that arose was that of sexuality. “Is nudity inherently sexual or is nudity just a part of being human? Why does society typically equate nudity to sex? And how does the variety of body types come into the equation when asking that question?” Each person’s answer is different.

To clarify, I’m not an exhibitionist or a nudist – I’m an artist looking to humorously poke at some interesting thoughts about society and question who we are (and how we’d like to be perceived) as human beings. It’s now up to the viewer to answer those questions, as he/she likes.

However, for me, from Houston to Hudson and from Bowery to the Bronx, photographing Manhattan has never been such a rush….



1) Aroma, Rome: Avoid the crowds and sit high above the Roman ruins, with a picturesque scene of the ancient Colosseum.

2) Le Loft, Vienna: Inside the Sofitel hotel in Vienna is Le Loft: a high-rise restaurant fit for the artful city. With a mosaic ceiling and tall glass windows, Le Loft offers modern cuisine using local ingredients.

3) Sixty-Five, New York: Enjoy cocktails and bar bites at the newly opened Sixty-Five, located on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Take in the soaring panoramic view of every iconic New York City skyscraper.

4) Sushi Samba, London: Sushi Samba may be a chain, but its London outpost is located on the 38th and 39th floors of a towering skyscraper. Floor-to-ceiling glass panels offer guests the opportunity to overlook the old-meets-new architecture of London, with a side of Japanese-meets-Brazilian-meets-Peruvian cuisine.

5) Vertigo and Moon Bar, Bangkok: Sixty-one stories above the glittering city of Bangkok is Vertigo and Moon Bar, located in the Banyan Tree hotel. The open-air grill serves a selection of steaks, seafood, salads and tropical cocktails.

6) Le Jules Verne, Paris: Consider the Eiffel Tower your rooftop in Paris—Le Jules Verne is the monument’s official restaurant and overlooks the city of lights while serving a prix-fix menu by famed chef Alain Ducasse.

7) Spago, Istanbul: Wolfgang Puck’s newly opened Spago restaurant in Istanbul is located at the top of the St. Regis hotel. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls offer views of the historic city with a traditional menu serving everything from hand-cut tortellini to a roasted baby beet salad.

8) White Rabbit, Moscow: Perhaps the most whimsical restaurant in all of Moscow, White Rabbit serves a tasting menu inspired by the chef’s travels, which look equally like something out of Alice in Wonderland: think glass test tubes full of flavored liquid on ice, and sorbet served on an artful wooden basket. Located under a paneled glass dome, the restaurant offers sun-streaked views of the Kremlin.
