MEET SPLASH! FESTIVAL’S SECRET HEADLINER

yes, it rained. yes, stage-time was very late on the very last day and yes, it was not the main-stage. but what happened that night should be a lesson to every concert-/tour-promoter and –presenter out there: olli banjo moves the crowd like no other. everybody who was there knows what we’re talking about. thank you olli for a sensational live-experience and of course for reppin’ our gear in front of thousands. extra shouts to dj flo and dan orange for doing the same.

because you can’t teach heart!

benson callier is taking our “play hard, don’t embarrass our products!” approach to the heart. sleeping in his brother’s dodge in front of the gym just to get a chance to compete against the best – and ultimately achieve his goal, a spot in the league. that’s just one of his stories. the 6-6 forward, who has been featured in slam before, has recently been named one of the top 25 players not in the nba – yet.
for more info about benson’s unique journey and the basketball camp he is currently holding for 6-16 years olds check out his blog at www.bensoncallier.blogspot.com.

CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP!

Germany’s capital is the center of the world this week. Berlin is currently hosting the much anticipated “Fashion Week” as well as the return of the “Bread & Butter” fashion trade fair. That means the city got more fashion gurus, freaks, victims and trendsetters than a full season of Sex and the City. Of course, K1X is getting in on the action with various projects and events. If you’re in town, make sure to visit “Hip Hop Don’t Stop (K1X Edition)”, Berlin’s consensus MVP when it comes to hip hop parties. Saturday, July 4th at “Tube Station” (Friedrich Street 180-184, Mitte). DJ Amanda Diva (NYC), Walter (Tel Aviv), Bianca Checker and resident San Gabriel will make sure things pop off, as usual. K1X created this limited tee for the big event. Get it at the event or make sure you get one of the limited joints at the kickz store (Muenzstreet 20).
