Sections - P L A Y:
Intro - “Allow ESG to usher you into the Bay Area. GET JUICED. BARS.” Track: BJM – Sound of Confussion.
John Vossoughi - “John Vossoughi is a rare breed. A man of the lam. The Spirit of the Haight is written into the palms of his hands, but his journey spans the globe. Welcome to San Francisco.”
Oregon, Bladies, and Pablo - “Our travels are possibly the most important part of the blading lifestyle. The real gold is the bonds that last forever. Get out in the world. Commune with your bladefamily.” Track: John Stewart ft. Stevie Nicks - Gold.
Cameron Talbott - “Cameron brings an equilibrium to any situation not found in many people. Maybe it’s his upbringing off the bounty of the land. Maybe it’s the blessings of Haight/Ashburry. Whatever it is, one thing is for sure: His colors, like his crystals, are equally balanced.” Track: War - Spirit.
Philip Moore - “Philip Moore’s love of all things cheese and dough is matched only by his love of community. From Birmingham to Berkeley, he has remained dedicated to assist those around him to always be better today than yesterday. Join him on that journey. Track: Earl Sweatshirt - Grief.
Visitors & JSF - “The Bay area is infamous among us as a mecca of blade lore. Experience all sides of the Bay: the hills and districts, the blunt smoke, the Sideshows, and the Heem.” Track: Mac Dre - Too Hard For the Fuckin Radio.
Michael Braud - “This is my highest of highs and my lowest of lows. Welcome to my Junkyard.” Track: The Birthday Pary - Junkyard (Live on Gotterdamerung, 1982).
Daniel Malm - “Many citizens merely inhabit the urban sprawl, but Daniel’s soul is one in the same. A man of many names, Dan is best described as your favorite skater’s favorite skater. Follow him to darker shades.” Track: The Stooges – Not Right.
Credz - “Luckily, when the sun sets, it’s fleeting beauty decidedly lies in its impermanence. The end of another moment under the sun is a signal to begin the fight to fit all that we can into the darkness. Because, though some nights seem longer than others, there is always another day. BARS.” Track: Lou Reed – Street Hassle.
