750 Rebels – Visionaries


With an emphasis on quality designs and garments Australia’s hip hop pioneers, the 750 Rebels are set to launch their new clothing based web store.

The 750 Rebels have been active as a collective within hip hop culture in Australia for almost 20 years and have solidified their place among the greatest crews in the country.
Their “hockey style” logo – designed by graffiti pioneer Malis – is immediately identifiable and synonymous with the group’s unapologetic approach to music and art.

For the past decade 750 have sold out their limited logo print T-shirts and hooded jumpers upon printing having rarely met the demand that existed for their clothing.

With the new web store 750 Rebels aim to not only fulfil the demand for their product but introduce new and limited designs, kicking off with their “Visionary” crewneck jumpers.

Inspired by the Los Angeles based skate and footwear company Vision Street Wear, the crew have reinterpreted the celebrated branding with a focus on the future.

Having vision requires the knowledge of what once existed and the focus to reimagine the possibilities of what can be, the way we dress is an extension of our individual creativity.

With roots entrenched in the traditions of hip hop music and culture the infamous 750 Rebels have their sights set firmly on the future of their brand, and beyond that, the future of global streetwear.


The 750 ‘Visionary’ crewneck jumpers are available tonight from 7:30pm AEST at www.750rebels.com. These are mad limited. Don’t sleep!

HEATA – “Interference” Limited Cassette

INTERFERENCE BLK&WHITE

“Interference” is a limited run of 20 homemade CASSETTES mixed live by DJ Heata. But it’s not what you think. During the course of working on my forthcoming official album “Executions” (due for release in the summer of 2017 through the mighty Unkut Recordings), I got distracted one night by crazy synthesizer records and decided to make a DJ mix unlike anything I had done before.

This is NOT a Hip Hop mixtape, but a collection of weird & wonderful synth music from wax LP’s spanning from the 60’s to the 80’s. There are no beats or singing on here, but a stack of bizarre, evil & at times beautiful synthesizer arrangements. The mix is 90min long spread over two sides and is mixed live in one take each straight to tape with a few live synths and samples played over the top. The tapes used are brand new TDK’s from my personal stash.

If you’re up for something a bit different , and perfect for that late night steez, check this out. A massive thank-you to the visual master Joshua Davis for the photography & artwork.

Limited to 20 Cassettes only.

10 x Black Cover – Recorded to TDK D90

10 x White Cover – Recorded to TDK B90

$16 inc. postage to anywhere in Australia. Please email for postage if you wish to purchase from overseas.

Available for purchase here on Runroyal.com Thursday June 8th 2017 at 8pm AEST.
