By Tanja M. Laden in Cool Travel on Wednesday 6 June 2012

If you’ve always wanted to visit Toronto, but never really had a reason to go, now’s the time to head north by northeast, in more ways than one.

Happening from June 11-17, NXNE also overlaps with LuminaTO, another Toronto-based arts festival that focuses on the latest creativity coming from the biggest city in Canada.

The Presence of Heart dress was unveiled by relative newcomers, Agent of Presence, at SXSW. It’s an outfit that gently lights-up along with the wearer’s heartbeat, whilst simultaneously sending the rhythm out wirelessly to any compatible device. A novelty, for sure, but a fresh avenue of fashion which opens up a world of possibilities for […]

Luke Rathborne

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Tuesday 28 June 2011

We’re digging the conflicting tones in New York songwriter Luke Rathbornes’ music: sunnyside up melodies jarring with a melancholic minor key discourse. It’s a compelling mix and one which catapulted him to adoration on the back of a scintillating performance at this year’s SXSW in Austin. Check out his new single You Let Me In […]

The film won the Grand Jury […]
