I should really just start and stop this one with just that photo of me. hahaha
But, Run Cool! I got this one from buddy AC Slater, who brought it back from Germany. It's an Austrian based energy drink, I can't seem to find a website for it, but it seems to be pretty popular in Poland since a lot of the distributors I keep finding are based in Poland.
I actually drank this and shot these photos a few weeks ago and I have no recollection of how it tasted, but looking at my reaction below, i guess I REALLY liked it. My friend Denman said I should take this blog idea further and write a story of what happens to me after I drink each one. For example, I go run a marathon, or go to Chuck E. Cheese's, get into a fight with a bum, etc. etc. As awesome as that idea is, (which I may try), typically, I'm in front of the computer at the office making sure everything is getting taken care of, or drinking energy drinks and taking photos of myself doing so.
Either way, I like this one and it's funky name and positive message: "100% Positive Energy!" You go cool smiley face guy with sunglasses on!
* Also Big Ups to Ray Bans for hooking me up with those sunglasses and Trouble & Bass for letting me live.

Our very special guest will be Supra1, one of our first signings to T&B. A couple of youngsters from Cracow Poland, who hit a home run with their Remix of Little Jinder's Polyhedron in 2008, which snowballed into some remix work for T&B as well as their first release of original material!
As always, this will be a Trouble & Bass not to be missed, and in a secret Brooklyn location no less!
Some more info HERE or on our Facebook Event Page!
From Poland, our friend The Phantom has put together our most recent Smashcast! The mix is all about showing what to expect from The Phantom releases. It's balancing between dystopian saw waves, tropical drums and the rawness of the production. Apart from introducing Hackman and Brenmar remixes from his upcoming EP, the mix focuses on the unreleased/forthcoming material from some of The Phantom's favorite producers at the moment - Jam City, Optimum, Lil Silva, Scratcha or T&B's very own Supra1.
