“RANGDA” for Beats for Change x Los Bangeles present The Bali Sessions: Trouble in Paradise

Dedication: R.O.L.E. Foundation

We from Beats for Change teamed up with the Los Bangeles crew to dedicate our first fundraising event for the sake of environmental issues in Bali, Indonesia.

With the use of the old traditional Balinese story about the battle between Barong and Rangda (Good and Bad) we printed 4 exclusive giclée prints. During our event at the LEYP store we held a lottery where everybody could buy €5 a ticket to win one of these prints!

This event was a major succes. We had DJ’s, performances, traditional indonesian food and got sponsored by the good people of Bavaria.

We now can send R.O.L.E. Foundation 395€! So that will be 535$ (6.315.970rp!) to help out environmental programs and spread awareness to the locals about keeping their little paradise clean for future generations.

Now he got a kickstarter up in the air to raise money and produce The DJ Trike 2.0. When he’s done he’ll take the baby for a spin from Vancouver all the way down to L.A. Just to cause little riots of unplanned pleasure.

Pandaboy – Green Shades EP

Client: Pandaboy

This was a huge turning point in my life. Coming from boombap hiphop I wanted to make something that I never did and something that I never heard before. In 2010 I made this album, complete with intro, skits, artwork and an animation!

The title track ‘Green Shades’ has been aired by EVR radio (NY), KCRW (LA), Radio 6 (NL) and more. Even the track ‘My Condoleances’ reached the Jon Oliver’s EVR’s Main Ingredient with Jon Oliver top 20 of 2012. Insane!

Creative production company Shop Around asked me to join PopJugend; their stand at the Blooom art fair in Cologne. Shop Around gathered a few artists they represented who made characters out of ordinary things.

As I’m heavily involved with music I made a character out of an old time tapedeck.

This Facedeck is for sale at Majke Husstege’s newly added concept store ‘Outspoken’.
