Osunlade on the decks

Whenever Osunlade is in town, I know I am not going to sleep much –

On the 26th of December 2009 he was playing at Djoon all night long. After chilling in the studio all afternoon, I had a raclette @ Greg’s house, and then arrived at the club around 01:30. It felt weird going back to that club, because it had been such a long time, and because I have so many memories there. In fact it felt a little different, mainly because of the DJ booth aspect – It is a real booth now ! The sound system also sounded quite tight and not as loud as it used to be (I mean badly loud). The people seemed to be slightly different too.

It felt good to see the Parisians House Mafiosi Lionel Marciano and Franck Roger, crazy folks and heads of Real Tone Records.

Osunlade and Franck Roger

We were all hangin out by the booth and got to hear some classics like “thousand finger man” or “gypsy woman”; the people seemed to have as much fun as us. I was taking pictures and being careful to the smooth mixes of Osunlade. Had Perrier all night long and went back home at 07:00 AM tired and happy.
Next day, we met and walked in the city, just letting ourselves be surprised by all the gorgeous things and scenes that Paris has to offer. Paris is a bit like a painting sometimes, good to watch but not much interaction. Perfect for shy photographers like me.

Here is the photographic diary of Osunlade’s visit.

Please make sure you check his latest album, “Rebirth” that is one of the most sincere and deep expressions of his music to this day.

A quick article about the video “fixedgearlondon in Paris” :

Last year a group of 10 fixed gear riders from London planned a trip to Paris, to discover what the scene was around here.
For 3 days, we rode east to west and north to south everywhere in Paris… It was really cool to hang out all together, and get these guys to meet the “locals”.
I remember it was a cold and humid month, and it seems like it was such a long time ago, because so many things have happened since. To me it seemed obvious that this improvised trip needed to be on tape, so I grabbed my scooter and went for some filming… The outcome wasn’t meant to be a really fast and dangerous looking video; the purpose was to show people that riders actually started to travel with their bikes, the only purpose beeing “RIDING”.

Luis Davis

Luis hails from Paris, he’s a cycle polo pro, fixed gear fanatic and a ’spare time’ videographer. We had him fire in some words about the video above, like he mentions in his words and the same reason we dug it – it’s just dudes riding.

Cheers for the narrative Luis, stoked to have you on board this coming year as a product tester, look forward to many more shorts and the stories behind them – stoked!
