The Rumor Mill: Custom 1200′s for LA DnB pioneer DJ CRS? !

According to his own Facebook announcement made earlier today:

“just got off the phone wit my homie from Technics. They wanna make me sum custom DJ CRS? signature 1200 turntables! BIG NEWS!!!! =)”

In my opinion this is HUGE for not only CRS? (aka George Ybarra) but for US DnB as a whole.  CRS? is one of the OG LA Junglists that helped push the sound that would become a driving force in the LA scene, along with DJs APX1, Oscar Da Grouch, R.A.W., and more!

Big ups to CRS?- we’re looking forward to seeing what they look like!

Lady Gaga Named Creative Director for Polaroid?!?!

So we just heard that POLAROID has decided to do a multi-year partnership with Lady Gaga!?!?!

In Lady Gaga’s own words:

Taking you back to 1994- Remember when it was all Jungle?

Wayyyyy back when, when things were still called Jungle, the BBC gathered up the top names in the London scene & got their take on the new sounds that were taking over the clubs at the time.
