DIESEL LAUNCHES ISSUE FOUR OF "BRAVE" 'ZINE
FOR FALL/WINTER 2007: THE "ALIVE" ISSUE
Chapter One kicks off on October 11 with Wing Shya, Dan the Automator and 24Herbs
HONG KONG, October 11, 2007: Diesel is proud to launch Issue Four of its seasonal ’zine, “BRAVE,” as a three-part experiential art / music / fashion platform.
Aptly titled “Alive” — where the ’zine has now evolved into a real live, physical experience — the three chapters of “BRAVE 4” will feature incredibly special art-exhibition and music-showcase events each month in October, November and December 2007.
As a long-time supporter of art and music around the world, Diesel is honoured to also work with AliveNotDead.com for “BRAVE 4” to celebrate emerging musical talent in Asia. Throughout the next 3 months, a series of AliveNotDead.com music showcase events will be held as part of "BRAVE 4.” Chapter One will be launched on October 11, with three guest collaborators:
WING SHYA: “溫沙 – THE ARCHIVES UNLOCKED” exhibition, curated by Sean Kunjambu and Danny Chau, features never-exposed works taken over the past decade by Hong Kong’s most celebrated photographer. To commemorate Diesel’s “BRAVE 4,” the exhibition includes special portraits of indie bands and musicians who are part of the AliveNotDead.com artist community. As part of the exhibition, also look out for the interactive room featuring music videos by these featured artists and musicians. And lastly, renowned Hong Kong toy designer/artist Michael Lau pays tribute to his long-time photographer friend with special hand-drawn illustrations fused into Wing’s collection;
2) DAN THE AUTOMATOR: DJ/Musician/Producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura makes his first-ever appearance in Hong Kong for the AliveNotDead.com “RESPECT” party which will be held immediately after Wing Shya's exhibition opening. Superbly eclectic and old-school-cool in musical style and direction — and possibly California’s most underrated producer — Dan The Automator will perform a private live-music showcase featuring vocalist Gavin Hayes of Dredg and rapper AG of DITC;
3) 24HERBS: Hong Kong’s newest and illest rap collective will also perform at the party. 24Herbs consists of DJ Dor Yuk (aka Producer Eddie Chung), MC Drunk (Conroy Chan), MC Sir Eats-a-Lot (Brian Siswojo), DJ/MC Ghost Style (Brandon Ho), and MCs Kit and Phat, both of ex-LMF fame. Armed with hardcore Canto-rap lines and an underground music vibe, the group mixes local humour with street culture to add fresh vibes to a stale pop-music scene.
Inspired by three words, “Only The Brave” — the Diesel corporate identity — “BRAVE” is a seasonal ’zine that’s different in attitude, content and creativity. Previous issues have seen the Guest Art Director seat rotate from AllRightsReserved (SK Lam) to Shya-La-La (Wing Shya). And Guest Collaborators have included artist Anton Lopez, photographers Ann Woo, Dan Pak, Jordon Scott and Wing Shya, as well as stylists Chinatown, Sean Kunjambu and Sunshine. Always in fine, sweet tune with the Diesel mantra, “For Successful Living,” we are very excited to come “ALIVE” for “BRAVE 4.”
