Classic Chicago House.
SO THIS IS A MIX THAT AIRED IN THE MID 1980′S ON CHICAGO’S WBMX. THE SHOW WAS THE ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AIN’T NO JIVE DANCE PARTY.’ THE HOT MIX 5 WERE THE MAIN DJ’S BUT EVERY WEEK THEY PUT ON A GUEST DJ. ROBERT ROJO AND MYSELF WERE GUESTS OF RALPHI ROSARIO ON THIS NIGHT. THE FIRST HOUR OF THE MIX IS FROM ROBERT AND THE LAST HOUR IS MINE. IT’S SUCH A GREAT TREAT TO HAVE UNCOVERED THIS LONG LOST REEL-TO-REEL TAPE IN MY PARTNER MIGUEL GARCIA’S BASEMENT AND BE ABLE TO HEAR ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DANCE MUSIC WE WERE PLAYING ON THE RADIO BACK THEN. I MEAN, NO ONE ELSE WAS GIVING AIRTIME TO DANCE RECORDS, NOT TO MENTION IMPORT DANCE RECORDS FROM EUROPE. A LOT OF THE TRACKS YOU’LL HEAR WERE ‘ONLY’ PLAYED DURING THE MIX SHOWS OR IN THE NIGHTCLUBS OF THE TIME. ENJOY.”
At Quotidian Ventures, we are making a bet on entrepreneurs who know their industry, but don’t necessarily know the rules of the startup game or how to code. If you have a great business idea, but don’t know jack about the startup world and want to hear from some of the people who have made the transition, you should seriously consider attending this one day conference. It will be a good time.

On the Roof: Beacon’s Jacob Gossett and Esther Kim
Earlier this summer we grabbed a stack of our latest tees and a few cold craft beers, and invited Beacon’s Jacob Gossett and Esquire design director Esther Kim to spend a sunset hour modeling on the rooftop of our new Brooklyn office. The fiery evening sun, a few volcanic looking clouds, and the purpling sky over Manhattan made for a quintessential summer in the city moment.
With July 4th just around the corner and people in cities around the US making plans for visiting coveted rooftops with wide-skyed views, we thought now was a good time to share the photos along with our wishes for a happy Independence Day.
In the spirit of celebration, scroll to the bottom of our image set and you’ll find a discount code for $5 off every tee in our shop starting now through July 7th.
(Special thanks to Jakub Alexander (Heathered Pearls) for photography and processing; Carolyn Ward for bringing the steamer and lending a much needed helping hand; and, of course, Jacob and Esther for standing in front of our cameras.)
