Dungeon Family AKA Outkast & Goodie Mob + Bombed insides + Breakers = Trans DF Express



Note the kids reading Subway Art at the end of the video ;)

Hate it or love it?

That´s the big question right now as a recent leak of
a unfinished Detox track has hit the net.
Under Pressure features a noticeable
sample of Kraftwerk's “Trans Euro Express”.
Will Detox be on some Electro shit?
Only time will tell,but it shouldn't be no surprise
that Dr. Dre was/is a Electro funk head.
After all he produced jams like...
-Monster Rappin (1985)
-Mission Possible (1986)
-World Class Freak (1986)
-The Fly (1986)
-House Calls (1987).
and
-Surgery (dJ dAb Overdub) 1984 Live Performance


...back in the 80´s and in a recent interview with
Washington Post Dr. Dre spoke on his love for Electro;

Q.
Who is your favorite artist at the moment?
What is playing on your iPod?

Dre:
“I don’t actually have a favorite right now.
I’ve been listening to a lot of old 60s and 70s music.
Things like Kraftwerk, and Parliament Funkadelic.
I’ve really been listening to a lot of Kraftwerk.”

Q.
1970s German electronica?
That might surprise people.

Dre:
“Kraftwerk had a really big inspiration on the beginning of Hip Hop.
My tastes change with the season.
Right now it’s Kraftwerk.
I’ll see what happens this summer.”



For now here´s a tag free leak of
Under Pressure (Dr. Dre ft. Jay-Z) NO tags,NO hook (yet)

Bonus;
Crooked I of Slaughterhouse freestyle over Dr. Dre´s "Under Pressure" beat

Interview With Devin Flynn AKA Relm KSN AOK COD

This Saturday, June 19 (2010),
ZPFfffft!!! opens at the Scion Gallery in Culver City.
The show features Gary Panter, Bob Zoell and Devin Flynn,
three artists who are identified with Los Angeles art.
In particular, animator Devin Flynn contributed to
L.A.’s early graffiti scene as KSN writer RELM.
In this interview, Flynn talks with Zio about graffiti history.



What was the earliest (non-gang) graffiti you remember seeing in Los Angeles?

I saw Dreams Don't Die on TV in 1982 with the kid from Escape From Witch Mountain.
The first tag I ever saw in person was ALSKI—must've been late 1983, seventh grade.
ALSKI went to my junior high, John Burroughs,
and he was tagging spots at school, on buses and in Westwood Village.
I also remember seeing ZODIAC tags on Hollywood Boulevard.
Maybe a year later, SOON painted a little burner
on the outside of the handball courts at JB.
Around that same time, SEEN had come to L.A.
and painted the "Dial M" piece on Sunset Boulevard,
and I saw it from the window of an
RTD bus on the way home from JHS.

What influence did gang graffiti have on Los Angeles style?

I grew up in Atwater Village,
and a kid named Ralphie in my neighborhood was in
Toonerville Gang by the age of 12. He started hitting it up in the L.A. River,
and sometimes I would ask him to let me do one too.
I was only 10 at the time.
I'm sure a lot of other kids from my generation
had some early exposure to gang writing way
before they knew anything about what was happening in New York.

Gang graffiti was always an influence.
The mentality was also a factor; it wasn't just the graffiti alone.
Even on the west side, small cliques of
middle class white kids were emulating
cholo writing styles and attire mainly because it looked cool.
Gang blocks began appearing more and more.
They were just killing the alleys, parks and streets,
making it seem like these nice neighborhoods were riddled with gangs

I'd say this was happening at around the time Pan Pacific
was starting to get bombed.
Anyone I knew that was into graffiti had started
out copying gang placas or Crip writing.
Any L.A. writer that knew shit about graffiti
could do a relatively authentic gang placa just because it looked so evil and cool.
You couldn't resist trying to do one just to master different styles.

Most people associate graffiti with hip-hop because that was how it was presented in movies. How did punk music influence you and other KSN writers?

I think one of KSN's main contributions was allowing anything.
Especially humor and typically "uncool" shit.
We did cholo characters, rastas, b-boy lizards,
skulls, aliens—whatever we liked and mixed it all together.
It was based on what we were into and not trying to follow the traditions.
We didn't reject all graffiti subjects or styles,
but we took what we liked from all of our own weird interests.

Personally, I was always into anything that I thought was cool.
As much as I was dedicated to going to punk and speedmetal shows in the mid-1980s,
I was already popping in elementary school, playing video games with slugs,
stealing Star Wars dudes and listening to Rodney on the Roq all at the same time.
Somebody would throw a little battle in their mom's living room,
put on the strobe light and pop to Freakazoid.
Songs like Herbie Hancock's “Rockit” or George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog”
were always playing out of some kid’s boombox and someone
would be trying to do a headspin on the grass.
It was something everybody in the neighborhood was trying to do.
It was impossible to ignore.

I got into all of it and didn't choose sides.
When something is too new to categorize,
there are no rules yet and you are free to add your own innovations.
I always thought that was what hip-hop was supposed to be about. Punk too.

How does graffiti inform the animated videos or fine art you do now?

I use a lot of personal experience in my animations,
so scenes with gangsters or cops are usually
expanded jokes based on real things I have experienced,
watched happen, overheard, or even imagined happening
in a situation that ended up totally different.
Like a worst-case scenario kind of thing.

As far as actual connections between the art of graffiti and animation,
there is a sense of flowing lines and movement
which has carried over from writing,
but honestly I was always trying to put
as many cartoon characters in my graffiti as possible so I’m not sure which influenced which…

It’s all drawing, although I think the boldness
of the marks and simplicity and looseness
I tend to go for is something that has carried over naturally.

Ghost: Rocking in Style (From Here to Fame Publishing) by Alain "KET" Maridueña



Product Description
GHOST was one of the last kings of the New York City train writing era. He experimented with traditional letter styles until developing his own loose, funky and psychedelic letters that sprouted from his twisted drug seeped brain and his passion for bombing. When most writers see a train yard as an opportunity to paint a nice colorful piece, Ghost sees the yard as a place to bomb, to do hundreds of throw ups. He approaches his paintings with the same zest and casual grace as he does his throw-ups, with bold dripping explosions of vibrant colors and freaky cartoons. With frequent trips to Europe his style has inspired the new wave of Scandinavian-loose-bombing-style pieces. Today, he exhibits his artwork in galleries worldwide and does collaborations with urban culture brands. Despite this Ghost remains an enigma, he isn't social, and he does not want to be your friend. But his artwork like his bombing is something fantastic that deserves attention, for this he is overdue.
