The 101 Apparel ethos has always been about taking a curious and eclectic approach to art and sound. We have long been advocates for music from disparate genres and eras; just take a look at our mixes and designs. When we discriminate what we listen to; we don’t always take a record nerd approach - that would be too sterile and predictable. We mainly like to ask ourselves does this music move me ? Does it engage me on all levels ; a sonic tapestry of mind- body and soul ? This design is for the DJ’s, music makers and appreciators who connect with music on that mind-body-soul tip. *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of our choice from our DJ Mix Series.

The basis of sound is rooted in nature and math; concepts that were sketched out by the early Greek, Indian and Chinese philosophers. From the first caveman banging on a drum to a modern producer using software to make elegantly precise soundscapes; math is the skeleton key. This design is inspired by how math is researched and charted in the chalkboard style that many creatives and scientists work in when they are in the idea stage of a project. Instead of numbers we took music genres, images, concepts and laid them out like a complicated theorem from the realm of astro-physics. This design is for the music geeks, aesthetic connoisseurs, and those with an eye for innovation in composition and design. *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of our choice from our DJ Mix Series.

Beats Per Minute is how DJ’s and producers figure out the tempo and pulse of a style that they will be playing out that night. Back in the old days, BPM within the dance and hip-hop community was used to seek out records that were similar in pace so they were easier to beat match. Whole styles of dance music have centered around BPM like slo-mo disco, drum and bass, hardcore, and techno. Once Serato came into play it made mixing tracks with varied tempos as easy as clicking a button - a BPM game changer. This design pays tribute to BPM as it’s had a huge influence on how tracks are produced and how DJ’s have used BPM to manipulate dance-floors. *Includes a special download card redeemable for 1 download of our choice from our DJ Mix Series.
