It’s Thursday, so why not throw it back a little? During this year’s Winter Music Conference last March, we came together and threw, in my opinion, one of the best parties Miami had to offer. It’s so crazy that the venue, Grand Central, was always so out of reach to us- so big, such a grand scale, so intimidating. And finally we made it there. The Trap Paradise event was a continuation of the…

It’s no secret that we here at 2DB are fans of bindis. Simply put, the tiny jeweled stickies are awesome. But, they also represent years and years of culture that most people don’t really know about. As a member of a cultural minority, I would never want to disrespect another’s culture just for the sake of my fashion sense. With all the uproar lately about “cultural…
If you had a younger person whom you inspire. that wanted advice from you would your offer an internship ?
I liked doing internships when I was in college / university. I say thats the only time you should do them. I interned at MTV Latin America and OH WOW Gallery. Learned some good things but most importantly met a lot of great people who are still around today. Its funny how the World goes full circle and its really paid off relationship wise. But after you graduate, no more intern work - your better then that. You need to be confident, do as much as you can while your an intern and talk to EVERYONE. Pretend to work at least and just be a sponge! Thats the only time in your life you get to do that. Try to intern somewhere thats productive and you will actually be helping people do real work - not the whole free labor crap. Thats what I hate about internships. Either way, you will be fine because even asking me about an internship means your on the right path! Soak it up and look at your schools websites for opportunities in great places and you’d be surprised if you asked your ideal job if they do internships, they probably will! So go for it and remember - WHERE THERES A WILL THERES A WAY! :) GOOD LUCK!
Becks ‘Beyond The Labels’ Takes Art & Creativity to the Next Level
Companies are doing more and more these years to really grasp the movement of culture and art that is engulfing our generation. With that said, Beck’s Beer has revealed their 2014 Live Beyond The label artists for this year. For over 27 years Beck has chosen artists who embody creativity, freshness, and a hint of rebel to bless their beer bottles front label with for the Summer! Who doesn’t love the Summer sun and a beer?! Past artists featured include none other than Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, M.I.A. and Kid Cudi. Wow, thats a pretty impressive list! Whats even more impressive is that THIS YEARS roster includes TWO Miami-based residents – Miami Heat Official DJ, DJ Irie and artist TYPOE. The DJ IRIE bottle features the DJ’s famous silhouette as photographed by his LA-based photographer friend Jeremiah Lazo complete with his signature glasses. TYPOE’s bottle features the piece “Rose” from the gunpowder series he unveiled at Spinello Projects in Wynwood last November in Miami.
The great folks over at Beck’s sent me over a case of the collection and I thought, what better than to spend a Forth of July with a few great friends and artists! They look great on the beach These pictures came out great!

Proud of my city more and more each day – plus even more proud of the underground creatives who are finally getting recognized such as Maluca! I didn’t bring the Maluca Mala bottle out to the beach because that bottle..is going to be kept as a collector’s item! I love Maluca and have been waiting for her time to shine so this is a great step in the right direction for her career and craft! Go Miami and Go Maluca!
