If you haven't heard of 'Trackside Burners' radio show, you're missing out. It's our favourite thing to listen to in the shop and probably the perfect soundtrack for the environment; the show takes you on a musical journey of hip hop past and present.

Their latest show focuses on the infamous book Subway Art and is a tribute for all writers worldwide and paying homage to Henry Chalfont and Martha Cooper, the two that made a book which changed lives. It is a must listen to so check out that show here!

DJ Philly's aim is to bring back the pause mix-tape era and beats to make your necks snap. He presents Trackside Burners, a hip hop soundscape for all writers & b-boys/girls on the legendary Itch FM & his aim is to promote the movement and the art form of our hip hop nation. 
210 Presents became a member of his brand new family in 2014. He is part of the Itch FM crew, doing his 'Dusty Crates' Specials along side DJ Philly on Trackside Burners.
For the show archive, check out their Mixcloud here. For their Facebook check them here and Instagram here

Chrome & Black Welcome Part One TDS To Paint In a NYC-London-Paris Link Up!

Chrome & Black Welcome Part One TDS To Paint In a NYC-London-Paris Link Up!

Last week we welcomed Part One TDS to Chrome & Black for a book signing in store. Ahead of the signing we thought it was only right to hold a paint jam at one of West London's most loved spots, Trellick Towers. With NYC favourites T-Kid170 and Ivory in tow and some bags of Montana Black, we headed to the walls with London heads Yan, Shuto and Chik along with Paris writers Kay One, Relax, Oster and Wuze to spend a day painting on a surprisingly rain free day! Here's how it went down!

For the full photo set click here. Photos by @Justanenigma and Sean O'Donnell. With thanks to Montana Cans for the paint support.

Montana Cans introduces the latest addition to the Montana Cans ICONIC Series. This time the iconic spotlight is on legendary American photographer, Martha Cooper. Famous for her authentic and compassionate documentation of the New York Hip-Hop and graffiti culture during the late 70’s and 80’s, Martha Cooper gained world recognition in 1984 for her collaboration with fellow photographer Henry Chelfant, on the classic graffiti art book “Subway Art”. The book would become one of the most referenced of its genre worldwide and become a major influence to graffiti artist all over the globe, even to this day. 

The Montana Cans ICONIC Series focuses on one of her better known images from the 80’s of two policeman standing in a fully tagged New York subway car. The image has been turned into a triptych and split over three cans as a homage to this amazing photographer and her on going contribution to our culture. This special limited edition will be available as a set of 3 Cans and launched officially at the 20th of May at the “SNAP WRAP” exhibition by Martha Cooper and Urban Nation in Berlin.

In 1981, Martha was riding on the New York subway with her camera, not a recommended move considering the high crime rate at the time. The low ISO of her Kodachrome 64 film made it difficult to take pictures while the car was underground. But when the subway hit daylight in the Bronx, the image of the cops framed by graffiti tags was irresistible. Was she going to risk asking the officers for permission to photograph them? Since taking pictures on the subway was illegal at the time, she decided just to go for it.  “Luckily they didn’t say anything and I got the shot. Mission accomplished.“ she says today. UTAH & ETHER... UTAH & ETHER...: I've been to a lot of European destinations over the last few years and these two have "been there and done that" .......hats...

On Thursday 9th June we have none other than PART ONE in store for a special signing of his book Part One: The Death Squad. Pre order your copy here and join us from 6pm to get your copy signed!

PART ONE (Enrique Torres) has the reputation of being one of the early graffiti style writing pioneers that created some of the most brilliant art works on New York City’s subway trains. He is a veteran of the golden years of New York City subway painting and considered a style master in the graffiti world specializing in his own brand of lettering which he started to develop in 1974. From 1974 – 1985 he was one of the most accomplished artists on the New York City subway trains, in 1985 he took a brief hiatus from painting only to return in 1990 as a leading figure in the re-emergence of wild style pieces in murals in Harlem. His art has been featured in the classic film Style Wars as well as the critically acclaimed book, Martha Cooper’s Hip Hop Files, and most recently the books, Burning New York, New York City Black Book Masters and Graffiti Planet. His biography, Part One - The Death Squad chronicles his art spanning more than 30 years. PART is active today painting both on canvas and on walls around the world.
