On this episode of The Dropcast, Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by artist Richard Haines , who weighs in on his favorite New Balance sneakers and his sincere appreciation of Tyler, The Creator’s style. Known for his intimate sketches of people, places, and things, Haines adds a humanist perspective to the conversation.
We discuss the influence of Stan Lee on comic books and nerds around the globe, then turn our attention to Virgil Abloh’s recently revealed accessory collection for Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2019 season. Haines schools us on NYC club culture before we plug our latest ‘Hidden Heat’ documentary, which profiles the American rave scene and the graphic flyers that spawned from it.
The conversation gets heated as we break down our list of the Best Jordans of 2018 (So Far), and that fervor continues into our question of the week: Is Camp Flog Gnaw the hottest festival in America?
Listeners make a strong case for why Tyler, The Creator’s festival is one of the most relevant events in the culture now. Feel free to weigh in with your opinions on The Dropcast hotline. Give us a ring at 833-HIGHSNOB (444-4766). See you next week.
