Last week, I had the honor of documenting one of the most controversial and visually stimulating hip-hop groups of our time -- Die Antwoord.

Die Antwoord hail from South Africa and if you’ve ever watched any of their music videos, you will understand why so much controversy surrounds their act.

Because their aesthetics are always over the top, I expected their performance to be very high in energy and at a fast pace, but I had no preconceived notions regarding their fan base. As I parked my car to start my walk towards The Phoenix, it dawned on me that I truly had no idea what a typical Die Antwoord fan would look or sound like (even though I am one).

What’s more, because of the group’s recent departure from a major recording deal with Interscope Records, I was unsure how many people would be at the venue.

As I got closer to The Phoenix, I was shocked to see a line-up outside of the venue that was almost a block long. It was the largest line-up that I had ever seen in front of The Phoenix and it was filled with the widest array of personalities and sub-cultures that I had witnessed at a concert.

My friend Yoshi is one half of the Stone Mountain/Atlanta, Georgia-based group known as Band Geakz.

He's a really talented MC and he definitely represents his hometown to the fullest.

Recently, he came to Toronto for a visit and I shot some portraits of him, as we caught up.

Definitely be sure to download his latest mixtape, "Proper Etiquette) from here: http://tinyurl.com/72td9ww.

Review: Detonate Group

The Detonate Group Logo

I have been working with Detonate Group for almost four years and as far as I'm concerned, they're the best print and design firm in Toronto.

All of my business cards and framed works have been produced by Detonate and most recently, the company worked with me very closely to ensure that my last art exhibit -- "The Expanse" was a huge success.

Without Detonate Group's hard work, professionalism, resourcefulness, foresight, creativity and expertise, my last art exhibit would not have been possible and I'm still reaping the benefits of working with and being associated to such a great enterprise.

In a couple of weeks, some photographs from "The Expanse" will be featured on this blog, so that you can view some of Detonate Group's work in greater detail.

In the meantime, I highly-recommend that you get in touch with them if you or your company need anything related to print, design and/or marketing.

Their website is available at www.detonategroup.com and all of their contact info can be found here: tinyurl.com/7a8l3k7.
