Soy Panday

Express

The Magenta homies were recently back in India, with our Push Periodical colleague, and Patrick Wallner. Or where the viewers finds out there is a place on the earth where the streets move as rapidly as Glen Fox does… And not that many cultures can claim that!

Summit of the Non-Aligned / 5W's!

Skateboarding has definitely been seeing the flourishing of independent happenings, as though a form of natural resistance to mass culture by its most sincerely devoted enthusiasts. As the official 2019 program for the ninth (!) edition of the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival just dropped, in Belgrade, the Summit of the Non-Aligned is just about to start (from today on, till September 15th), and as expected from passionate people whose communication is more akin to sponataneous expression than malign marketing, it probably wouldn't have caught the attention of a wider scale audience if it hadn't been for word of mouth from acquainted artists who linked us up (i.e. Glen Fox and Nez Pez). Five minutes later and a phone call was in order...
 
Check out the Summit's website and Instagram feed, and enjoy the interview below, with activist David Soda.

Intêrstate magazine / Rafael Gonzalez / 5W's!

Launched in 2017, Intêrstate is a highly qualitative skateboarding magazine with a focus on beautiful images, exposed film and an explicit motto: "skateboarding culture and visual arts". The third issue just came out, and one of the co-founders tells us more.

Vivi Turbo!

It already has been five years since Static IV dropped, and one can say that Vivien Feil's part from it has aged like fine wine… Tech when needed, clever when the spot calls for it, and always powerful: yes, this fine young man skates the way we dig, and has not really slowed down since… Can you dig it!?

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!

Faux vintage

You would have noticed by now, ut we are not necessarily that excited about contests, over here, but when the Pop Trading Company homies come up with the idea of replicating a "good ol' days" comp up to a T, from the obstacle to the general vibe, including the way it would be filmed, you know they are gonna come correct, and ended up making up miss the times when Flo Marfaing was reigning supreme on all things ledge and manual pads… Hmm, wait, we are being told that he is actually repping hard in this!

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.

Bigger Spin / EP 006 - Soy Panday

Once again, Bigger Spin - the text-, image- and link-based complement to every new episode of Big Spin, the French skateboarding podcast interviewing key actors of the scene - is back and this time, Soy Panday is disclosed to be their latest interviewee. The man behind the Magenta Skateboards art direction as well as some pretty good frontside noseslides has a story we've shun light on before, but no one better than Soy himself to tell it; this Bigger Spin retraces his flow of thought throughout the interview just as much as his personal development along the years, dot by dot.

Soy Panday / B&B / PREMIERE

Soy Panday, the one and only; now, not content enough with just providing you with a new part of his, the man himself decided to chime in and answer a few of our, and hopefully your, questions. The tortured Magenta Skateboards graphic artist who turns into Roy if (preferably comfortably) fed tofu past midnight, proud owner of several Parisian fountains and with equally good eye for urban spots, taste for lines (of whichever form) and form on backside flips is now live on LIVE, cruising through twenty years of street footage on video as well as through your mind with his words.

Tavu alert!

If, just like us, you have been following Olivier for a while now, you do know he isn't exactly the neither expansive nor exuberant kind, and that you do have to push him out of his shell a little! Especially if you want to make him speak art or skating. Let's salute Olivier Fanchon's work here, as he managed to capture both sides of him, in complete honesty! Ladies and gentlemen, here is Monsieur Tavu, discussing ruining perfectly good maps, and also proving his very theory –according to which he doesn't really skate anymore– completely wrong… A man of talents, but you would know that!

Aymeric Nocus "The Law of Creativity" / PREMIERE

All right, let's get this week started on the right foot, and not any foot either, but the one our very own Aymeric is never afraid to plant on one of the many step-hop variations he is known for… Almost entirely filmed in his home, the skateboarding Mecca of Blois. Proof, once again that pleasure is where you go get it!

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!
