  • you know you're a genius, maurizio catellan?

    Maurizio Cattelan was born in Padua in 1960, after starting out in the design world he made a name for himself as a brilliant and often controversial artist.

  • sza's got brooklyn in tears but she's jumping for joy

    “It’s getting so hard for me to hold back tears and keep singing right now!” neo soul singer SZA confessed to the jam-packed audience Rough Trade’s Brooklyn outpost Tuesday night. But she wasn’t the only one feeling a little misty. Whether waiting hours in a downpour in a line wrapped around the building resulted in some leftover dampness, or the premiere of a new emotive collaboration with surprise guest Willow Smith just had folks feeling some typa way, there was not a dry eye in the house. One minute, her wrought performance of “Babylon” left grown men reaching for the tissues, the next, she was jumping for joy over her new Jellies sandals, her infectious giggle somehow as melodic as her soaring vocal acrobatics. This is a girl who could hold her weight in a riff-off with a Daydream-era Mariah Carey, but would just rather eat Smartfood popcorn and watch Pepper Ann re-runs. A girl who makes everyone in the room feel as though they’re watching a middle school best friend her live her dream.

  • bridey elliot is not a hipster brat

    Bridey Elliott is one of a new wave of brash, bold New York comic actresses who don’t wait around for life to happen to them. Taking on the role of Harper in Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss’s SXSW Grand Jury Award winning film Fort Tilden, Bridey is as unapologetic as her on-screen persona, albeit far more self-aware. Following the tribulations of two best friends as they attempt to ride to Fort Tilden beach in the stifling New York summer, Fort Tilden is an entertaining satire about disaffected, entitled Brooklyn hipsters, as well as a touching tale of friendship. Perfectly cast, Bridey has paid her dues as a standup comic, writer, and actress around the city. And the girl has serious comedy lineage: her father Chris Elliott is a noted comic and longtime Letterman star, and her sister Abby was a Saturday Night Live cast member. i-D speaks to the rising star about stolen bikes, suspending judgment, and driving representations of women in film into the future.

  • we wanna play FTSE with FTSE!

    Not to be mistaken with the Financial Times Stock Exchange, FTSE are the brilliantly talented, wicked fun dream team (both on stage and IRL), Sam and Tazmyn. Hailing from Leicester, the duo aim to create tracks where both music and lyrics are of equal value... ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! Their simple productions revolve around social commentary and are full of brilliant beats, honest words and sweet sounds. Taken from their recent EP, Utopia talks of “possessions possessing a whole generation’s psyche – Apple, Adidas and Nike”, while Nite Life, featuring i-D favourite Femme, is the antithesis of your favourite club tune and sounds like a sober night out with your drunk mates, but amazing. It’s also worth noting that Sam is currently partying hard in his no-fucks given side project with Jakwob, GET HOT, and collaborating with the likes of Kenzie May and Saint Saviour. Ahead of their live performance at FARR festival this weekend, we caught up with the Lucky Number kids to chat sad songs, perfect songwriting and real life issues.

  • together PANGEA know how to party

    As well as the former supercontinent, PANGEA started out with a handsome teen hippy from Cali named William. Having caught his first show, high school friend Danny - then an eyeliner wearing, AFI lover - joined him and took up the bass along with then ska-punk drummer Erik. Fast forward several years to a Capitol Records signing and they were politely informed by the legal dept that there was, ironically, too much PANGEA in the world. Adopting ‘together’, always and forever, the band/besties are taking their LA sound global.
