VIDEO: Disclosure – “White Noise” Feat. AlunaGeorge

I am absolutely obsessed with Disclosure, thanks to my friend James Rubin. I listen to them at least once a day. It’s like meditation for me…er something. This video is pretty tight although it is a bit strange. Thanks to Young Scoozle for telling me about it!

LIFE: Night Lights – Def Jam’s 30th Anniversary – Pre-Super Bowl Party (1.31.14)

vashtie_newera_defjam_sb4801 On Friday night, I met up with the homie Josh Madden for a Def Jam & New Era party at one of my favorite venues…Hudson Hotel’s Good Units. The music was ill…provided by DJ MICK. The scene was full of entertainment and since it was pre-Super Bowl there were birds-a-flocking. I showed up in a Supreme Football Jersey looking like I lost my pants in a terrible bet, but I had fun anyways. vashtie_newera_defjam_sb4802 vashtie_newera_defjam_sb4803
