8 ball!

We barely had time to recover from the seventh episode, that Romain Batard dazzles us with an eighth Giddy. And this time the cast that travels through the streets of Paris is even bigger than as usual. We even have the right to a little touch of romanticism that makes everything so harmonious. Add a rather serious featuring by Steve Malet!

Giddy #3

So, if this new edit by Romain Batard does not make you want to buy a plane ticket to NYC in order to get silly in the streets with the homies over there, well, you might be a little dead inside… As usual, the mood is good, Hugo Maillard manages to take aback and Alexis Jamet goes beast mode! Just perfect.

Giddy #1 / PREMIERE

You may remember Romain Batard from the Frame by Frame full-length, or his multiple collaborations with LIVE, like his rather innovating Hors Champ, or his recent collaboration with Alexis Jamet… Well, he is back behind th

Tonic punch!

Find here some news from the good city of Rennes! As you would expect, those are good ones, filled with laughter… That does not slow down one of the most active French scenes one bit, and boy do they put their (vintage) fits to the test!

Our house

The "skate house"… Absolute fantasy at the times of adolescence, quasi night-mare when the "age of reason" arrives, that very idea entered the collective consciousness of skateboarding in 1989, to be precise, via one particular part of Ban This, that –off course– featured Lance Mountain and Neil Blender. In 2016, the dream is still very alive, even if often reduced to "the skaters appartement". Living in Rennes, a smaller town, the Tonic guys are under a slightly less rent pressure, and managed to reach the Graal: The House! You know them already: you can imagine what they get up to in there! One question remains: what is their collectively favorite brand of cereals? Oh, what the hell to they spike it with!???

Can you feel it?

We have been living under the Tonic menace for a minute, now, but shit just got real… The Rennes locs have been amongst the most active but also the most original in France for a few years, now, so it was only a question of time before they started their own thing. The real beauty lies in the fact that follow no rule! Then again, they never looked like they would, but Tonic really is "100" as you say on Instagram. We won't even pinpoint Hugo Maillard as he is his usual French King of Quick Feet, but we'll note the appropriation of one of the most insane bass line in the history of House Music.

(Note to self: work on a sociological essay about the late popularity of House amongst young skaters in the 2010's… Hell, is there even a hip name for that decade?)
