Luka Sabbat for BMW
Car enthusiast Luka Sabbat has designed a series of merchandise for vintage BMW models, which he revealed on Instagram. The capsule collection features a vintage design and includes a T-shirt with an anthropomorphic engine and a hat with ‘Bayerische Motoren Werke’ branding. The range was available exclusively at a pop-up event at Tokyo retailer GR8 on March 17.
Bell Yan created the ‘Beywatch’
Remember Bleyblades? Instagram artist and maker of things Bell Yan returned with another version of her ‘Beywatch’. A remix of Beyblades and watches. She created a new, more sophisticated look of the watch and we can’t get enough of it. Keep an eye out on her Insta and Planet Bell for any info on drops and other anime-inspired stuff.
Mixtape: Ta-ku ‘Drive Slow, Homie Pt. 6’
Ta-ku‘s Drive Slow, Homie mixes were a staple in the electronic beat scene back in the day. Last week, the beat producer unveiled ‘Drive Slow, Homie Pt. 6’, the first mix since 2018. In his own words, Ta-ku says the new mixtape starts off with the “head nodders, ramping up to some ethereal liquid and dropping you off with some low-slung lullabies.” The artist mounted a 360-degree camera on the hood of a car so you can actually cruise and look around a nighttime drive through a busy city. You can click around the video to get different views of where the driver is headed, giving you the full “Drive Slow” experience. Check it out on YouTube.
Lil Uzi Vert gets slimed at Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards
It’s kind of crazy to see artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Baby on stage of the Kids Choice Awards by Nickelodeon. Uzi performed a version of his viral hit ‘Just Wanna Rock’ on stage and had a drum-off with a kid drummer. After loosing this fun battle, the Atlanta rapper got slimed on stage. And the pictures are hilarious. Uzi’s post on IG shows how he loved and enjoyed his appearance on Nickelodeon!
