Edel Rodriguez is a brilliant illustrator with an unique and clever way of thinking. His work, with printmaking-like texture, is very graphic and deep with substance.
Patrick Hruby is a mentor of mine and a genius illustrator and designer. His work is geometrically created and stunningly beautiful, with wonderful use of color. His work never fails to amaze me. Or make me smile.

Aaron Jerome’s mixes are too good to pass up. It’s one of those, once it’s on, I can’t turn it off kind of things. If you want to listen to something a little house, a little soul, a little techno and a little garage, SBTRKT it is.
