Glen Fox

Six pack!

We haven't been without introducing you to Loophole - the S.F.-based wheel company piloted by some of the best - before; and if the name of Zach Chamberlin still eludes you to this day somehow, then we strongly encourage you to do some research!

Anyway, this time, the whole roster (and what a roster, even featuring a couple of new heads) visited Seoul then Osaka, Tokyo and finally Kobe, only to bring back a twelve-minute-long piece of VX-1000 handicraft that's bound to make you mentally travel - and physically, at least as far wherever your board is resting right now.

Booticelliboys in Thaïholland

On paper, given the number of paved floors that can be heard and seen, the video probably takes place a little more in Holland than in Thailand. Although they have added some exotic touches, the Booticelli boys play at home for this video. In this case, at least it guaranteed quality guests with some guys from Pop that we know well at LIVE like Noah Bunink and Willem Van Dijk, but also the intrepid Glen Fox who is no longer to present. Far from huge bangers everywhere, guys keep a cool, friendly identity and always take pleasure in filming with cameras probably older than me.

Magenta "Balade" / Meeting... Vivien Feil!

Finally on your screens, for you to watch no sooner than right now, right here: the new Magenta full-length, "Balade", prominently filmed in the United States of America but not exclusively. The resulting mix is a twenty-minute long upbeat edit - perfect to watch before skating - that was put together pretty spontaneously, actually. You know how LIVE works by now: the opportunity was too great not to try and ask the busy Vivien Feil (one of the founding fathers of the brand, besides offspring duties of a more organic type) what's up and surprise, he did manage to find the time to come through with answers aplenty for you to absorb alongside the video, making for a solid package we are stoked to present you today!

Southbang!

We already knew that Adidas and London work pretty well together. But it turns out that this year our Great Britain’s neighbors have been in great shape. Mostly filmed in Southbank and its surroundings, “vortex” obviously blows our minds, with among others, a good part dedicated to the powerful Darius Trabalza. But especially once the spot has been well returned, Glen Fox arrives as the icing on the cake, fast, technical, bouncing, just to remind us how well he mastered the subject.

S.F. alert!

We hinted to it already in this previous post about John Lindsay and Chris Thiessen's new garment-related enterprise, Free Travel; business-wise, a bunch is boomin' in the Bay Area these days with, equally, Loophole wheels, the uprising independent brand manufacturing soft and hard goods all destined to take a more downwards path - such as, in this case, zooming past the colorful landscapes of the streets of San Francisco, the nooks and crannies of which are hereby documented undergoing heavy physical inspection by trucks belonging to quite the epic team: co-founders Ryan Barlow (Magenta flow), Jesse Narvaez (Northern Co.) and filmer extraordinaire Zach Chamberlin, a solid roster already also happening to comprise flow master Jameel Douglas, quick feet kings Glen Fox and Chris Athans, and Roger Krebs. Glen's S.F. footage in "Stack Your Bread" especially makes it an instant classic (with impeccable timing as Glen also has a part in the new video Magenta video "Balade", currently premiering and just about to drop), and more generally everyone involves is featured playing their own role which is exactly why we love them for, and we'll definitely be keeping an eye on the certain progression of Loophole!

Teddie!

Teddie is not just the first name of London O.G. and Long Live South Bank activist Greg Conroy's most recent offspring (congratulations again!); it doubles up as the title for George Toland's new full-length, filmed for Greg's collective: Serious Adult over the span of eleven months, from November 2017 to October 2018, when it got exported just in time for the latest edition of the constantly expanding (and bubbling) Vladimir Film Festival. The lads did send it hard, and not just on local turf either  as they also got footage whilst on trips to Marseille (France), Zaragoza (Spain) and Pula (Croatia). By no means a stranger to the VX-1000 by now, George's filming is incredible, and only sublimed by contributions from Rémi Luciani, Chris Williams and Luke Herb (when Tom Delion was in charge of the Super 8). "Teddie" hits like a brick you'd splatter over upon catching a London sidewalk crack, and is packed with a solid roster of stylers dominating some improvised playgrounds of quite the unpractical type with incredible ease!

Tom Delion, Jack Soden, Sebastian Lemus and Darwin all have individual sections, when the rest of the video is riddled with friendly appearances by Greg Conroy, Max Critchlow, George Booth-Cole, Chris Garcia, Lewis Bell, Graham Davies, Harry Turner, C.J. Sewell Gayle, Jorge de Torres, Sam Earl, Mikey Prentice, Joe Coward, Elliott Wright, Chris Mann, Tommy May, Glen Fox, Ryan Cunningham, Luka Pinto, Louis Woodhead, Myles Shankie, Sam Bunton and Will Stradling. A green tea-fueled, streets-infused explosive mix!

Turkish vibes

After Normandy, Istanbul for the magenta team, a great opportunity to admire the skills of Günes Özdogan, and the crazy skateboarding of the unstoppable Glenn Fox. It's amazing how this city is full of beautiful spots in both practice and aesthetics. So here is MAGENTURK (nice pun!) Just for you, six good minutes of beautiful images of their skate we know and love.

The Dutch candle fetish!

So, someone will have to step forward and explain us the fascination our neighbors from the Netherlands seem to have developed for said "Tea lights"… Then again, their local street furniture does seem to require some feral waxing! Which has never stopped the Dutch scene from flourishing, since the 90's. This video from local media On The Roll showcases perfectly this vitality, with a varied casting traveling around Europe while also taming their local and yet abrasive surfaces. And, icing on the cake, young Pascal Moelaerts cast a general resemblance with Toby Shuall. Which could never be a bad thing!

Mare Nostrum

Let's head out South with the Magenta heads! And what a more suiting destination for the crew (here in full effect!) than Marseille? A gold mine of non-spots located hillside for the most part that once were neglected even by the locals and are now way more acceptable and therefore in use… Off course, Ben Gore would feel right at home, no matter how steep the incline might get, but Masaki Ui also get his fare share of adrenalin in this one… Second part of the trip is the more beaten path of Valencia, but from the all too smooth pop of Jimmy Lannon to the Günes özdogan featuring, you are in for many surprises. Yes, this is some great, great Magenta offering, all thanks to Josh Roberts talents, also!

"The Sound of Success"

In the port of Amsterdam, there is one hell of a gang that goes under one of the best crew moniker in the world… And they just released a full video, full of great skaters (including many a Pop homie) and of the weird spots we dig, mainly made of red or grey bricks or slabs of many sizes. They also have adopted that Glen Fox fellow which takes here the opportunity to drop one of his best parts so far, including quite the handful of hammers in there… This should put you in the right mood for the week-end!

Salam

Where the Magenta heads try to bring back together two worlds by slapping David Axelrod's Christian Mass to their footage from a recent visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Set the debate of the actual name of God (if you belive he/she exists), and you got a strong edit, despite the grueling heat you can actually feel!

Yoan Taillandier / 5 W's!

As to better accompany his new Bordeaux montage, here's another dimension of Yoan's perspective on all things MINUIT, through the prism of our classic treatment-by-the-5 W's!
