“Hoax is a graphic design agency based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. They combined their love for typography, material and experimentation made us decide to start working together under a shared name. Hoax aims to create a certain way of working, which results in unique visual translations, rather than repeating ourselves visually and conceptually.”
“The covers are one-of-a-kind, hand silk-screened by Hit+Run, with Hennessy-infused paint.”
“Nick van Woer originates from Reno, Nevada before moving on to greyer pastures in New York. His art speaks of a certain vileness, though not without reason. Much of van Woert’s art is constructed of found materials. He takes the previously grandiose busts and reclaims them using grimy plastic resins and other garbage. In doing so, perhaps he is reclaiming the past, interrupting our want to revere historical figures. Or, perhaps these are comments upon the plasticity of icons; that is, how we change them to fit our needs. Perhaps, van Woert is something of an iconoclast.”
The new Lazer Sword album is out. It’s a really divers mix of musical styles and audio vibes. From 80′s electro breaks to dirty wonky beats. Something for everyone. This duo has had a great year. With releases under various other aliases like Lowlimit and Lando Kal – The Golden Handshake EP on Numbers.
“Great user interface. Truly touch based application that takes advantage of the iPad. A simpel and elegant way of messing around with sound and music.”
