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!

The vibe about skating rocks

Let's recognize here, once again, the rare talent of Zach Lyons to turn any vaguely angular thingy into a spot, and often more than that… To the point where he could probably transform a pebble and two twigs into a line that would actually look original and natural. And that is a talent in itself: being classy without ever falling into the circus act, where most would never find an interesting thing to do. Oh, and if you are young enough that the title reference is lost on you, well, you definitively want to head this way

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!

Spirit animals

A remix of the best footie the Magenta riders had in Spirit Quest? That's right, it here for you! And if you do not own the full-length in your collection, you are missing out!

Mo' cruise, mo' fun!

Well, they are quite on it these days, at Magenta, aren't they!? One could not complain about it, especially when they offer us a juicy bonus to their recent Just Cruise… They all here, on their home turf of Bordeaux, and this does not tickle your fancy, well, we don't know what could!

Northern City

Our buddies from The Northern Co. just sent some news from their most recent NYC escapade, and by looking at their clothes, it was still summer then, which allowed them to skate with many, locals or tourists… Yep, good stuff, street stuff, great street skating, as you would expect from them!

Charles' tip: La Capsule Magenta - UK

"Please remember they drive on the left lane over there!" Damn, Ben Gore just feels at home on any streets, doesn't he?

Rico, riquisimo!

Considering the weird monsoon period Europe is going through right now, this Puerto Rico trips with the good heads from Coalatree seems about perfectly timed! Enjoy!

The silent assassin

We had introduced you to Koichiro, at the very beginning of Live, just because he he is amongst those finally rare cases of skaters actually developing their own approach… His, of course, finds a home under the "Quick Feet" roof, but also dabs heavily into the "Impossible Carve" , thanks to super loose trucks but also to a unbelievable board control. Folklore has it that the S shaped double ledge took him a few nights, to achieve the perfect turn… This is from Lenz 2, a video you should really own!

Two Zach for the price of one!

And one quite similar approach, but spiced by two completely different styles… Therefore, street skating as we dig it, just like in the rest of Belly of the Beast.

A postcard from Morita

What goes around comes around, they say? Well, they were right! We sent one postcard to the Japanese Master a little while back, and here is what came back to us!
