Leo Spartacus

Ba-Singha!

Quentin Delebecque - aka. Mr. Singha on the Instagrams and YouTubes - just dropped a smash hit with "LES ZINVAHISSEURS", just short of ten minutes of Parisian VX-1000 brimming with brillance, but also humor. The roster is as colorful as it gets, with plenty of unique profiles you wouldn't expect to ever share a timeline yet just so happen to do it so well; it notably comprises Elson Patrick and Auguste Fenez (the same duo behind "JARDIN D'HIVER"), Tyrone O'Hanrahan does not seem to mind Léo Spartacus' or Paul Gallelli's company whatsoever, and Masaki Ui goes in with what's got to be the crooked bonk of the year - complete with crazy outraged pedestrians.

LIVE can only encourage you - again - to look into Quentin's YouTube channel as it's chockful of quality productions, including this great edit of Lille O.G.: Olivier "Tavu" Ente (as of today, strong of a grand total of fifty views; make sure to also check out Tavu's Instagram feed), or "CUSTOM", Quentin's former video - which we somehow managed to miss sharing around the time of its release last winter, but to this day remains well worth your time.

Magenta is ten!

With the year twenty twenty comes, amongst many other complete revolutions, the tenth anniversary of France's top plank (and general qualitative artefact) purveyors: Magenta Skateboards, and of their progressive - under every sense of the term - contribution to skateboarding's ever-so-new world order, like a happenstance cultural coup d'état that would have taken the whole past decade by storm. Still the brainchild of Paris-based artist Soy Panday and of brotherly duo Vivien and Jean Feil, Magenta just marked the occasion by appropriately dropping an anniversary-themed capsule (first come, first serve), and also by catching up with Sylvain Robineau again for the span of this short film: "STILL IN BUSINESS", featuring a cast of family members. You might remember Sylvain's works: "WHICH IS TO BE THE MASTER?" and "PARISIEN", amongst many other personal pieces one can retrace the existence of on Dailymotion, for instance.

Also on the menu, and the cake atop of the cherry: this "10 YEARS MIXTAPE" consisting in, well, a sugar-filled recap of the brand's video offering ever since its inception, cooked by Manolo's Tapes, complemented by an exclusive article on the Magenta website here, and even by a brand new Soy Panday interview by Matt Broadley for Parade World, here - all as to better get you ready for the next decade to come!

2ND CCD

Jimmy Larkz of Trois CCD, we've introduced you to his works before here and there, both times exquisite stuff and to that rule, "2ND" isn't the exception yet as this new piece consists in no less than fifteen minutes of authentic (and quality) Parisian VX-1000, only waiting for your click to start cuddling your irises. Oh and where to start, regarding the roster involved...

Giddy 11

Romain Batard, the French skate filmmaker LIVE really shouldn't have to introduce to you by now just on the basis of his longevity in the field, is back today with the eleventh chapter in his series-turned-saga "GIDDY" - and pretty clearly the most ambitious one that is, also including contributions from some equally prestigious video fiends, for a timeline just short of twenty minutes in total - but rest assured you won't catch a break!

On the menu: stunts from the usual suspects - Edouard DepazValentin BauerJoseph BiaisLilian FevMarc-A BarbierRemy Taveira - but also many others (including Max Palmer, Sylvain Tognelli, Mika Germond, Dustin Dollin... Quite the universal roster!), immortalized on Parisian spots aplenty - some classic ones and some more rare nugs, all approached with a sweet creative twist. Out of many examples, one of Soy's many fountains gets reinvented (and that's despite the mysterious disappearance of the corresponding Instagram account), but really it's the whole landscape of the French capital that gets dripped into new colors here, from the most famous plazas to the most unknown street corners possible (e.g.. le Dôme's three-flat-three, or the benches at République)... All in great fun as well, just bathing in the rhythm of the daily sessions.

Chic, chic, chic!

And as a complementary bonus, we are happy to share with y'all this photo gallery, by Max Verret!

PREMIERE / "Brotherhood" / Max Guyot / INTERVIEW

The last time LIVE presented one of Maxime Guyot's skate video works was back in 2016: he had then just published the second episode in his web series, "NCY Brotherhood". A "NCY" and not the most common "NYC" that stands for Nancy, France - the ancient capital of the Duchy of Lorraine, way prior to being the one of American fashion. Since then, Max hasn't been sleeping nor slipping and today, he's back with no less than a full-length video: "Brotherhood" (now a general concept) consists in exactly twenty minutes of urban skateboarding, coming in three slices: the first two are dedicated to the underrepresented Nancy locals and scene, and then the last one has a taste of Paris, foreign lands represented by quite the amount of Magenta heads. The eventual result is a little gem of an independent video, much in the vein of some of the best French classics of the genre and featuring rare styles, meticulous editing and intense VX-1000 swordsmanship. Which is obviously synonymous with many a question, so we logically caught up with Max himself for an interrogation he promptly gave in for, very much under the influence of our trust serums and various variations on the Stockholm syndrome.

Be Nice!

"NCE" is Rémi Luciani aka. Marseille Zoo's latest full-length effort, yet again blessing the South Eastern region of France with now more than his eponymous videos. Because Rémi did leave Marseille, but didn't venture very far away either as "NCE" remains focused on the area he really never left - just more underepresented cities and scenes this time, the ones of Nice but also of Cannes, Antibes and Monaco. Rémi's VX work is frenetic, taking notes from Chris Thiessen (the man behind the last TransWorld videos), the kids are alright and lo and behold, even Hervé Coneim is part of the gang!

Giddy-oh!

Always a laugh, always different faces… Skating captured between Paris, Rennes, New York City and Barcelona that will make you ring your homies!

Parisii / le remix / Group Edit

All right, so Monday is off, and this should put the fire in you: the homies, buddies, friends and bros section from our Parisii remix… Three years of skating around Paris amounts to a rather large group of people joining the sesh. Hell, you can even spot a couple world renown dudes in there, oh and that guy Rémy Taveira. And République getting built! All under the musical supervision of another Parisii head, Vincent Perrin!

Meanwhile, in Paris…

Comes with an important message: "(PLZ LISTEN WITH A GOOD SOUND SYSTEM,BASS RECOMMENDED" There, we said it!

Practice!

Some Parisians vibes, featuring lesser seen heads, and the new toys, a recent gift from the City Council!? Good stuff!

New G's

Paris to Bruxelles is an hour hour of fast train, and results in five minutes of spicy footage from the new Parisian generation!

Young Parisians

You might recognize some of their footwork from the most recent Parisii episode, and you'll rejoice with us about the fact that the new generation isn't letting Paris winter stop them!
