The Afro-Brazilian culture which facilitated the black soul movement in Rio de Janeiro is known as “Black Rio.” They actually used the term ‘black’ to signify specifically this kind of cosmopolitan, urban culture that had its origins in the soul-culture of the United States in the 1960s and ’70s, inspired by artist like James Brown and Barry White to name a few. This poster print shows the main artist that formed the movement during the mid 70’s Black Rio Movement. Big Boy was at the forth from of it all, djing the top parties and hosting the American artist when visiting Rio. We pay tribute to the sound and vibe created by the artist and the people that made it become alive. Obrigado Black Rio!

Tropicália was a revolution, a movement of subversion and beauty that swept Brazil in the late 1960s. It was a vivid, multi-disciplinary blossom, ranging from poetry to films, theater to visual art. But it was the scene’s bold and adventurous take on música popular brasileira (Brazilian pop music) that made the most noise around the world. Led by future stars Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Gal Costa, as well as irascible talents like Tom Zé and Os Mutantes, Tropicália combined adventurous rock’n’roll and avant-garde sounds with the native rhythms of the country. Limited edition Tropicalia pin included with the purchase of the T-shirt. • Includes Download Card with unique access code to download one of our featured DJ Mixes• Made In USA• Garment Dyed, 100% pre-shrunk

NEW MUSIC COLLABORATIONS

ARTIST FEATURE: Ron Trent - MUSIC & POWER

"Rhythm and tone creates our existence. We are the music. Understanding the cosmic power of Sonics is an ancient theology.  In urban environments music is a pressure valve, a social scale, the metronome of city life.  Some people admire the music, some play with music, and others become the music. The craft I study is lineage passed down from the likes of David Mancuso, Nick Siano, Tee Scott, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles, and Ron Hardy to name a few. The art of evoking feelings and telling stories through  recorded materials (Records) is by far one of the most intriguing, mystical, and misunderstood forms in this last century. DJ culture has taken the world by storm but has now become somewhat of a surface philosophy compared to the true power underneath.

 Time marches on and things will change but the original surge of Music and Power will not. The pure source of what makes us all feel the way we do when we collectively come together and rejoice, chant, and move is universally sound.  When we open ourselves beyond limits we can touch the frequency that pulses in the airwaves.

Music and Power has been my moniker for over the past decade because it best describes the purest essence of what I do and what I am connected to. Art and design has always been the root of it all for me.

 I studied architecture from the earlier stages of my life alongside, playing drums, collecting music, and being a history enthusiast. I guess you can say it is a combination of who I am and what I do today as producer of sonic forms. Collaborating with 101 is allowing me to express a portion of my vision to share with my collective worldwide. I admired 101 Apparel’s ability to capture a certain ratio of analog inside of their design. I am a big fan of punk art and rebel design. There is a chicness inside of simplicity and a complexity in its creativity. This presentation is a combination of my sentiments through Sonics and fabrication, all weaved together to connect to you."
