» The haps
Regular visitors to this site may have noticed that updates have been few and far between recently. This isn’t because nothing is happening, in fact it’s quite the opposite. We’ve had so much going on that we’ve not had time to get down to some Delarge business. For example, Paul has been designing and building websites for the likes of Royksopp, Kleerup and Patrick Wolf amongst other things… but things are going to change…
So first of all – let’s get to this new desktop wallpaper. Back in 2007, the main man Dark Daze took a set of photos for our original logo t-shirts featuring the wonderful Carly. Recently, the infamous Sally Reynolds reminded us of the shots on her Tumblr blog and how dope they are. So it seemed only right that we dug in the crates and pulled out this beautiful shot to adorn your desktop:
And what’s more… we’ve just had a new Tshirt designed by the jawdropper that is Alex Young, printed and handed over to Dark Daze and the Garage Studios crew for a fresh batch of photos – trust us when we say the tshirts are all that, and of course the new photos will be too.
We’ve also got another new desktop wallpaper brewing from Ashab, a hand drawn wonder that will make your monitor say thank you every day… in addition, the photo gallery is being fed fresh photos from the The Beautiful and the Canned, a celebration of street art that took place last month, pictures from our man Simon’s recent trip to Paris and coming right up and collection of photos from last week’s Ophelia Fancy party, celebrating the launch of their room at Hotel Pelirocco here in Brighton.
In addition, we have a nice interview coming up… and more and more treats… so stay with us, and everything will be OK.
We leave you now with a few videos and links that we’ve been absorbing over recent weeks:

Jay-Z live at the Tunnel in 1999
If you ever need dope beats coupled with some great writing – you can’t go wrong at Cocaine Blunts – where this video of Jay-Z live at the Tunnel in 1999 was recently posted, well worth a watch for a glimpse back in time at an intense performance:
Madlib live on the Gilles Peterson
1st ever augmented reality music video
Our peeps over at Blac Ionica have designed and directed the first music video of its kind – you need a printer and a web cam so you can interact with it… It’s the video for Ride My Star by Julkian Perretta – click on ‘Get the full experience’ for all the works.
We’ve also got some new stuff to feature from Mr. Cooper and the Project mooncircle label too, so that’s it for now… back soon!
