We are getting ready to try something new. We have a lot of people that are beat junkies and have been following us since the beginning of VNDTA music era.
King Kast's "Pan Dulce" will be an EP, beat tape. 7 fresh cut hip hop instrumentals that will be able for download this March 20th. Check out the video:
We collaborated with our friends, Yasmean (@yazmeeaann) and Tyson's Evil AMG (Yes the car has it's own instagram: @evil_amg)
This was actually Yasmean's concept she pitched to us, and we are always on board with working on something creative. So we went with it. The music in the background is by King Kast, off his new beat tape dropping next week "Pan Dulce".
Hope you like it.

I been hanging out in Santa Ana a lot more often. I passed by this liquor store several of time and just loved the colors from the neon sign. I knew I had to do a little set there. Well I met the perfect model for that spot Kelly. Trip out that was her dads hood too.

I hear this a lot, "Don't judge me Sammy." I smile and reply, "I am not judging, I am listening to you." Sometimes I feel that people really just want someone to listen to just without a reply.
The homie Victor came through the studio the other day just in time for me to shoot him in one of my shirt experiment. For some reason I am in love how paint drips and splashes. So I threw some bleach on one of our VNDTA tees "Eat The Rich" and now it's my favorite tee to wear. I was thinking of adding a couple to the shop, what do you think?
I been asking myself what is art? As if truly understanding the philosophy and essence of it can give me a better understanding to life. When photographing I ask myself, 'What is the purpose of this? What benefits does it provides?' Sure it's beautiful, but like food can be arrange to look beautiful, it still provides nourishment to the body. Can visuals stimulate and nourish the soul? Maybe so. Maybe art in a sense is a spiritual self created journey. Maybe art is an ever evolving struggle to create and express a subconscious or conscious voice deep in our souls. I'm still trying to figure it out.

This is the first installment of what I call “El Teatro” (the theater).
Basically is an approach to developing my photography concepts around my visual art;
since some of my work has been a bit more about creating an emotion and mood for it.
This one was inspired by my chronic insomnia I been battling for the past couple of months.
Most of the time is not even stress, but a need to keep creating. It’s like my brain has-
these random switch that gets turned on by it self and most of the time is at night.
It’s like colorful lights turning on in your head and you can feel the ideas
drip down slowly inside your mind like honey. That is insomnia to me…sometimes.

I truly enjoy finding new music. Specially when it is from an undiscovered independent artist.
See I refuse to be one of those people that says ‘There isn’t any good music out there.’
I disagree, I think we are just not looking hard enough. There is a lot of talent out there,
we just need surf around, discover them and share them.
Now with that said. I would like to share this new recording r&b artistfrom LA and OC , Zijn.
I heard his song “F.W.M.”, it caught my attention with that sample in the beginning, that gave
this 1970s poppy vibe. Then his vocals coming in and I was literally, “Damn dude this is really
good.” So here’s my share to you, enjoy:
