BLVK ROSE

Local Artist Black Rose On The Rise

We encourage everyone to follow their dreams, and do what they love. Supporting local artist is what grows our communities, we enjoy getting to know local artist. We recently had the opportunity to have a conversation with Redwood City, CA artist Roman Sanchez, get to know him and follow his journey below.

Where did you grow up? - "I was born in Redwood City, CA. Raised in the heart of Marlborough Ave."

Growing up what artist did you listen to, and who inspired you? - "I strictly remember listening to Mac Dre since I was a young kid, also all the other Bay Area artist at that time. Also PAC, Biggie, Snoop, Dre, and all the West Side Legends."

Why do you do music? - "Simply, I enjoy it all. Every single thing about it, from creating a project from scratch to hopping on someones track. It's also a way for me to express myself, a way for me to have fun. It's my playground, my office, my get away!"

How long does it take you to record a whole song, how many days, and whats needed in your creative space? - "It's honestly different overtime to me. There's been headaches, laughs, and good times while recording in the studio. What I mean from headaches is you maybe don't like the way you sound on a beat or the way the verse turned out, the delivery or flow, and so many other reasons. When I say laughs in the studio it's when my folks stop by the lab to chill and just start cracking jokes and fooling around. I've done a song in 1hr, dropped a verse in 15 minutes to taking days and hours to finish a song. I usually don't mind when the homies are present but I don't smoke, drink, or put myself on any type of high when I'm recording. I like to feel fully at home when I am in the studio, a fresh drink or snack (preferably dried mangos) haha."

At what age did you know you wanted to make music? - "I can't say exactly, I feel it just keeps getting more  serious as I get older. I remember recording my first song along with my older brother (Xitaz) when I was around the age of 10. He started rapping and getting into this whole music thing at the age of 14, we would record in a small little shack he had begged my pops to let him turn into a studio. At 15 we did this group called "Swaagfellas" which got really known in my city, I thought it was cool but funny because I was just having fun with it. Towards the end of HS I had to stop and get serious with school in order to graduate. Once again at 18 I wanted to make music again, before turning 21 I created BlackRose. Which stands for "The Beautiful Struggle".

hat else are you into in your free time? - "I love helping others if I ever get the chance to. Also playing sports, learning new things like cooking (even tho I can't) haha"

When is your next project dropping? - "My next project will be another single along with a music video in the near future. As of right now I'm not focused on dropping a mixtape, I want to keep making my own lane until it gets noticed before I drop an album or mixtape."

How do people get in contact with you, what are your social media tags? - Instagram: Blvkroseman Twitter: Blvkroseman Gmail: Romanflux

BE EXCLUSIVE AND FLY DIFFERENT:

WHY BOARDING OUR FLIGHTS HAS ITS BENEFITS.

Boarding Passes: A Chat With Artist MikeyyPNR.

I see you chose to have your releases known as “flights” as opposed to seasonal drops. Explain that.

   When it comes to boarding a plane, you think of a selected capacity of people allowed on the same flight. Like a flight, we connected it to streetwear in the way that only a select amount of people can wear the same garment. One of our mottos is, “Be Exclusive and Fly Different.” We believe that if you missed out on the flight then there is no way for you to reach that height via that specific item. To further compare to a flight, we introduce the involvement of boarding passes as well.

What are the boarding passes?

   The boarding passes come along with the purchase of any of our latest items. We really wanted to go in deeper and break away from the norm seasonal drops. We also wanted to make each drop an experience with both the consumer and us. The pass will consist of two parts: One being explaining what we represent and the second will be the detachable stubs that you’ll keep and collect over the span of a year. The more you collect, the better the gift.

Why Boarding Passes?    

  The reason we came up with boarding passes is because we want you to have a validation to accompany the purchase you have just made. We include a detachable stub because we want you as the flyer to feel rewarded for the amount of passes and stubs you have collected. Eventually you’ll be able to redeem the stubs for exclusive collectable items that will not be obtainable otherwise.

That’s dope. It’ll really give your audience a sense of importance to the brand.

Yes, exactly. That’s what we’re all about. We want to make the consumer feel as close to us as possible because at the end of the day we all want to be different yet connected.

This is a pretty unusual take on exclusivity. What other unique takes can we expect to hear about in the future?

We can’t reveal the future, but just know we will continue to innovate and push the envelope. So come along with us and fly different.

LEGENDARY LA MEET

Flask Mob Teams Up With Fellow Conquer_LA & WeOwnTheNight_LA For A Legendary Meet

On the night of January 31, 2015. LAPD was caught off guard with the amount of photographers that flooded the streets of Los Angeles, CA. Due to a misunderstanding, they were led to believe we came to protest and destroy the city with a crowd of "Ravers". They were wrong. A helicopter, several cop cars and the swat team came out to stop us. We even came out on several news channels. They said well over 1,000 people came out that night which led police to issue a large response due to the size of the crowd, they felt it was getting out of control. Later that night, they somehow SHUT DOWN the after party. Fly with us as we showcase highlight moments of that incredible night. Thank You Flask Mob, Conquer_LA, & WeOwnTheNight_LA for what was a legendary meet. Follow these amazing organizations on Social Networks: @FlaskMob @Conquer_LA @WeOwnTheNight_LA on Instagram.
