Katun and Bee from PHBKlik Malaysia visited Bandung and so we did a wall together. The theme was Hip Hop. Why Hip Hop? Well here's the story. So our friends in Singapore did a video called "We Are Not Hip Hop", I'm sure they have a good reason about their statement but we think it'll be fun if we respond to their theme. And so it is "Hip Hop Don't Stop!
Check out Cheztwo's mixtape "Wadezig! Maonday Mix Vol.!".
This mixtape should’ve been uploaded and posted last Monday, two days ago, hence the name MondayMix, but for some reasons, it’s late. Ha. Now what the hell is MondayMix? Well actually it’s just another mixtape, a selection of songs compiled into one album based on genre, mood, or whatever. Why Monday? because for me, personally, Monday is the toughest day of the week. you need more than just a kiss from a wife (or some hangover bitches from last night’s party, or whoever you find beside you when you wake up in the morning) in order to move your lazy ass off the bed and go to work. Or to school. You’ll need a good selection of songs to boost your mood to start the very first day of the week. So here comes the MondayMix, download it, put it on your iPod, and kick it. that’s the main idea. so will this mixtape be updated EVERY Monday? Maybe, but we’ll see, because sometimes you need more than just 7 days to dig 1 album. download this today, and you’ll be just fine at least for the next 2 weeks. Who made this mixtape? this Volume 1 was mixed by Cheztwo of FAB FAMILY. He did all the back sounds of FAB FAMILY videos. I dont know shit about music and its genre and all the bullshit, but i know whats good for my ears. and my ears say this guy did a good mix. For the next volume, i dont know but one thing for sure, we’ll serve you with the coolest mix from the coolest person all over the world, every Monday, once or twice a month. Whenever you need it. Ok enough with the blahblahblahs, find the link to download, and enjoy. (WADEZIG.COM)
After a long wait, finally FAB Family's fishing days are over. It turns out that the fish we caught was Astronautboys's Fishchick. Straight from Bandung, Astronautboys is a great artist with amazing skills and the most important part is he's a wonderful personality with great visions.
Here's a short statement that Tyan made right after he joined FAB Family: "Thanks guys, thanks for all the support. It's a big honor for me to join FAB Family. So let's make some graffiti! But to be more exact, let's do graffiti because graffiti is not just about making graffiti. It's all about doing graffiti"
Yes we totally agree! And it's an honor for us too! So here he is... Introducing the newest family member... ASTRONAUTBOYS.
Finally the video's done! Thanks to Cheztwo that is. If you remember, this "3 Stripes Original" production was actually taken last February and yes it's been 8 months if your counting. But hey, here it is. As Cheztwo would say... Chezt It Out! All Days Is Drawing And Surfing by CheztItOut!
Smoke stinging the eyes Why is there wind? Blowing back thoughts But thinking is sinking Believe in believing It only is just comfort Like pillows on the sofa Like a beer after work That simple smile Nothing behind it No political agenda Nothing surrounding it It's standing on its own It's wiser than wisdom Like trees that've grown Big enough for its own kingdom Up high like the colorful kite Feel proud of flying it But suddenly the string snaps The kite with its wind
Before leaving Lampung, FAB Family and LSA (Lampung Street Art) decided to do a jam session. The location was near LSA's base camp at Pasar Seni which is a place for all sorts of communities in Lampung. And by special request, Pope wanted a shout out. So we gave him a very "special" one! Lol. We had a fabulous time at Lampung and hopefully we can visit agaim soon. Rock on LSA!
Last month FAB Family was invited by Lampung University (UNILA) to do a showcase in Lampung. They asked us to be a speaker for a seminar about graffiti & street art, perform live and judging a graffiti contest held by UNILA. So we accepted the offer but unfortunately only 4/10 of FAB Family had the chance to visit Lampung (Stereoflow, Cheztwo, Racht4, and Skid) and LiaPiyik.
We left Bandung around 9pm and drove towards Lampung via Jakarta-Merak and crossing Selat Sunda using a carrier ship. Arriving at Lampung the next day, we were greeted by Lampung Street Art (LSA) and had a nice breakfast with them. Then we were escorted to the hotel feeling exhausted after a long trip. Late in the afternoon, we went to meet one of the sponsors ‘Diton Spray Paint’ and had a little chat with them about how they wanted to support graffiti with their products. After that, we headed back to the hotel and it was beer time and good laughs with LSA. Then late at night, FAB Family and LSA did some street stuff right before we all had some sleep.
Around 10am on the next day, we went straight to the event in UNILA. We started the event by a seminar discussing graffiti and street art. There were some good feedbacks from the students and people their. Hopefully we shared enough to make the scene in Lampung much more better.
Next on the rundown was the graffiti competition sponsored by Diton Spray Paint. A theme was set and it was ‘Go Green’. There were about 25 contestants participating and all of them did a great job doing there pieces fitting into the theme. After they’ve finished their pieces, the contestants had to wait for the results. While they wait, it was time for the live performance by us (FAB Family). During the production, we were attacked by people that wanted pictures and tags from us, lol. But it was fun though. We had a blast that day! (click picture below for bigger size)
And before we left Lampung, we had a session with LSA. FAB Family would like to thank UNILA for having us and a big big thanks to Lampung Street Art. Rock on guys! Street Art for Indonesia! Last but not least, a very special thanks to Wadezig!
