Dark Chocolate Decks

Chocolate Skateboards blast us with their newest series - Dark Chocolate. The decks depict a simple design but a very cool one at that. Almost too nice to skate on! These decks are available now at Mischief Skate. I’ll take one of every flavor, er… colorway rather. Sweet! No pun intended!

Recon Flannels

RECON gives us a nice set of flannel shirts to keep us warm in these cold days ahead of us. There are a large variety of colourways, that are all available for $90 at RECON.

A hip-hop trio straight out of the nation's capital, homebased is here to make their mark on the scene.

"Homebased hip hop. A collective consisting of Textstyle, Dynamo and Kane. We each bring our own unique perspective individual to our style. We're seven years deep and still digging. We represent ourselves and our peoples, nothing more, nothing less. Our roots are deeply strung to original, golden era hip hop. We've grown up on realism and truth and our music has adapted to this lifestyle. Our sound is organic and natural and our message is relevant to our surroundings. Homebased is simply no fronts, it’s all us. We believe in real life. We write real life."

“Rap is something we do, hip hop is something we live”


They've recently released a new mixtape called "Back Home". You can download it HERE and check them out at their
Myspace Page. On Thursday, November 27, 2008, they have a big show opening for Smif N Wessun from Brooklyn in a live concert at Babylon Nightclub. Tickets are $15 at Norml and Top Of The World in Ottawa.
