As you may already know, every first Tuesday of the month we throw Shibuya, and each one features new special guest DJ’s.
The next Shibuya (February 2nd) will feature Ty G and Max of HVW8.
HVW8 does a lot of great projects with different artists, musicians, companies, etc. They have recently worked with legendary skateboarder Ed Templeton, and feature a lot of different artists at their store front off of Melrose. Being a full service creative agency, HVW8 also has worked with Adidas for numerous projects, as well as Pepsi, Nike, Complex Magazine, Wax Poetics and many more. Back in November, Paten Locke was able to spin at their store for the live podcasts that they put out. 4 months later, we link again and feature them at our monthly event Shibuya.
So come out, support, and show some love.
(Here’s more info about them taken from their site)
“For more than ten years, HVW8 Production House has blurred the lines between art, music and design.
Established in 1998 in Montreal, Canada, HVW8 Production House’s initial artistic endeavor was the HVW8 Art Installation with artists Tyler Gibney, Gene Pendon and Dan Buller. After the group’s first “live painting” performance series at the Montreal Jazzfest, HVW8 started touring the world creating live pieces along side musicians such as the Herbalizer, Roots Manuva and Africa Bambaata, while holding exhibitions at such esteemed galleries as Parco in Tokyo, Museo De Arte De Puerto Rico in San Juan and MOCCA (Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art). HVW8 then created the acclaimed installation series “Political Minded” in 2004, which showcased in pop-up galleries in NYC, Montreal, L.A. and San Francisco.
In 2005, The HVW8 Art + Design gallery was established in Los Angeles as a studio + gallery space for HVW8 and friends. The current mandate is to support avant-garde graphic design, such as Dutch designer/illustrator Parra, Swedish design house SSON, skateboard company enjoi and American designer’s Brent Rollins, Kevin Lyons and Ray Noland. Most recently, HVW8 Records was founded in 2008. Look out for upcoming releases by Red “the Man Without the Machine,” Master Blazter feat. Computer Jay, J-1 and Dam-Funk and Hawthorne Headhunters with Black Spade/Stoney Rock.”
