Best Drops Of 2017 So Far

The hype never stops. There’s always something new coming around the corner to complete and complement the new season’s collection. Well, in the case of Malaysia, one season since most of our local labels only release one drop a year and we pretty much only have hot season, haze season, and rainy season. We’ve compiled a list of the best drops of 2017 so far, so get ready to part ways with your cash, and step up your fashion game.   Adidas NMD ‘Sashiko Pack’   Entailing the use of Sashiko embroidery from Japan, the brand with 3 stripes has employed the R1 and Citysock silhouette to be the designs of choice for the brand’s latest pattern. It’s not uncommon to see parallels being drawn with the Yeezy’s pattern, but that just means more variety for everyone else to choose from. Against Lab ‘What Is Paradise?’ Collection   A contemporary fashion label that doubles as a collection of creatives, this local streetwear brand’s latest collection revolves around the endless pursuit of man to find Paradise and satisfaction. All of the collection’s apparel features floral graphics complemented by moody colours to visualize the Garden Of Eden. Lansi 2017 Collection   The Swagger Salon’s home brand has been on a roll, and Lansi’s 2017 collection is no different. Featuring simple designs, yet dictated by vulgar captions, the brand’s appeal widens to...

The Level’s Official Playlist of July 2017

911/ Mr Lonely by Tyler, The Creator   The song comes in two parts, with a seamless transition from the first to the next — and is probably one of Tyler The Creator’s best ones from ‘Flower Boy’. ‘911’ definitely has a smoother catch to it, having it featured by Steve Lacy, Frank Ocean, Anna of The North and Syd, but ‘Mr Lonely’ is more gallantly outrageous about being lonely and filling the void with creature comforts. Tyler also had A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q to assist him with ‘Mr Lonely’. This 4-minute track has a lot going on,...

Jacked Up: The Tale Of Exorbitant Ticket Prices

No, this isn’t a new issue. That being said, the whole debacle on ridiculous ticket prices has picked up heat again with the now sold out Bruno Mars show here in KL. Only hours after the whole venue sold out, tickets started appearing on StubHub for prices easily triple of retail prices.   Same goes to other concerts preceding Bruno Mars; tickets for Coldplay in Singapore sold for a measly sum of RM20,000 on reseller websites, and Ed Sheeran here in Malaysia sold for approximately 500% of its normal price. The wallet crippling prices leave heartbroken fans in their...

Selepas ‘Tunjuk Belang’, maliQue kembali dengan ‘Pejamkan Mata’

  Sudah lebih sedekad maliQue dan Joe Flizzow berpisah dari kumpulan hip hop Too Phat yang diagungkan ramai sewaktu fasa kemuncaknya pada tahun 90an dan awal 2000. Kini, macam macam khabar angin timbul tentang keadaan maliQue, lagi lagi selepas Joe Flizzow rilis lagu ‘Aku Tanya Apa Khabar’ yang sangat jelas ditujukan kepada the General. Sebulan yang lepas terdapat desas desus diantara pemuzik tanahair yang mengatakan maliQue bakal kembali ke arena muzik lokal, walaupun ramai yang menyangkal idea ini kerana tiada bukti dari maliQue sendiri. Namun begitu, kementerian belia dan sukan mengambil langkah yang mengejutkan dengan menghasilkan sebuah lagu bersama...
