Favela Painting

Haas&Hahn is the working title of artistic duo Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn. They started working together in 2005, when they filmed a documentary about hip hop in the favelas of Rio and São Paolo for MTV. Inspired by this visit, they embarked on a journey to bring outrageous works of art to unexpected places, starting with painting enormous murals in the slums of Brazil together with the local youth. Check out their latest project "Santa Marta" HERE.

A-Trak: Dirty South Dance 2

Listen and download the mix HERE.


"It's based on an idea I started working with when i created the Dope Boys remix for Diplo's recent Guccimane mix. This is my amalgamation of two trends i've always loved: the dirty south and the use of trance synths in current rap. Here I have taken 15 or so of my favorite southern rap songs and 15 or so of my favorite trance synth lines to create something thats not corny or funny, it's simply the motherfudgin' jam!"

La Blogoteque - Phoenix

La Blogoteque: every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectedly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword. See Phoenix "Lisztomania" HERE.

Diplo's "No One Is Safe": New Orleans Bounce

"Diplo’s been working on a new documentary series for Current called “No One is Safe,” where he sort of Anthony Bourdains on the music scenes he’s deep into and explores their origins/history/current state, etc. This is the pilot, on New Orleans Bounce music, and it turned out to be really interesting..." The Fader

White Light 25: U-Tern

"I really wanted this mix a be different from anything I’ve done in the past. With my radio show (One Day Later) I’ve been fortunate enough to share the music I love for the last 5 years, so doing a mix series like White Light was not a huge departure from mixes I’ve done in terms of musical freedom. With that in mind I decided to take a more literal approach to the theme’s of space, night driving and introspection. I wanted to go deeper musically and tell a story at the same time, try to think of the cover art as a poster to a film you have yet to watch. I hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening!"
