Close Break family member morosky shot #nimmoandthegauntletts recently for their new track ‘Others’, out on @kitsune-maison. Listen to it on Noisey - go on, it’s Friday, treat yourself… 

morosky:

Imagine one day you turn on MTV base and you hear a woman with a glorious voice telling you to go back to the drawing board and not give up, at this same moment you had already had a feeling this was what you were going to do, but the timing of this feels you with light .. You wait to the end of the video to find out who it is and see the name ’ Terri Walker ‘.. You scribble this down, think you need to get her album.. Imagine the next day you go to work only to find this lady album on blast in the shop. This Album then becomes your soundtrack for then next two years straight, you listen to nothing else but her and the notorious B.IG . Imagine being introduced to Amy Winehouse’s music and not only falling in love with her voice and wording but also the fact that you can hear Terri Walkers influence all over it so you love Amy even more, because you know for a fact that Amy is also a fan of the woman you are a fan of .. Imagine your mate Marty Party introduces you via Skype to the woman who at this point you’ve been listening to for a decade. At this point you still love the first album as you did the first time you heard it. Imagine you go to New york to meet with D.Dash about your art work because that same woman recommended you and made it happen, having not even met you in person but just off the fact she loved your work. Imagine you become friends with one of your idol and hero. Imagine that the day Amy Whinehouse dies she the one to tell you and give you a hug.. Imagine she chooses you to shoot what is effectually the follow up to that first album, the album that gave you strength and a fresh look at relationships.. Imagine she becomes your homie, imagine that? I am bless to know you Walker. You inspire me .. No words for how much I appreciate and love you. Happy Birthday . cc @blessedbish

Dating website urges Firefox boycott over new CEO's position on gay marriage | PR Week

A simple but effective protest move from OK Cupid got a bit of a debate going in the office this week - questioning Firefox’s new CEO’s stance on gay marriage and his support of the Section 8 proposal, it got us thinking about to what extent brands can be separated from the people that run them?

Users trying to access OK Cupid via Firefox were greeted with a screen asking them to access the site through another browser, as the CEO’s stance had obviously riled them….fair enough when you also provide a dating service for same sex couples.

Abercrombie & Fitch, Urban Outfitters and now Firefox, it would seem that increased access to information means that brand messaging alone is no longer enough, staff and in particular leaders need to consider the implications their own personal opinions can have…often globally.

Rufus & Chaka Khan - ain't nobody - frankie knuckles- hallucinogenic remix -org.vinyl 12 inch 1989

We very rarely type the letters RIP, especially in relation to someone we don’t actually know - it can be a bit crass - so we were shocked when we tapped out those three letters this morning, especially as it was followed by Frankie Knuckles’ name.
Reading the news online early this morning, we were still a bit dazed, the realisation slowly dawning as we sat listening to his tunes on repeat. Even through the sadness, it’s hard not to smile a little bit, each track is literally a classic. 
For those who don’t know, Frankie Knuckles was an absolute legend and pioneer, he was the godfather of house music. He even has a street named after him in Chicago - Frankie Knuckles Way was renamed when the city declared 25 August 2004 as Frankie Knuckles Day; the Illinois state senator who helped make it happen was Barack Obama. 
It was Frankie’s sets at the Warehouse in Chi’ town back in the late 70’s that birthed the very term house, or ‘house, as it should probably be known. Back then this music soundtracked a subculture of society, an underground that didn’t have a voice or an outlet; it’s development, lifespan and success is testament to the creativity and passion of guys like Frankie.
We won’t profess to know him, we met him once through work years ago. Unsurprisingly it was behind a DJ booth - which can sometimes be a scary place, especially when you’re in the company of such legend - but he was a true gent, welcoming, kind and with the biggest smile you’d ever seen. Truly humble. As we said, we’ve been listening to his stuff on repeat all morning, and probably will continue to for the rest of the day. It’s amazing how far-reaching his tracks and remixes are; a sample, a beat, vocals or a loop, all still a part of the scene, shaping and driving house music forwards. Frankie, you truly created something so important to us.
Thank you.
