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.)
The Insiders Guide to Hard Wax
“A big part of who I am and where I am is carried by Hard Wax. Beside Berghain it was my school and is still my teacher.” - Marcel Dettmann
“Hard Wax is in a way, an institution for many people - for its role of ‘style-forming’ and ‘trend-setting’.” - Milton Bradley
“Hard Wax was not only my perfect student job but an important source for quality music. I consider Torsten and Sascha to be the earliest supporters of Ancient Methods and the most enjoyable colloquists about music.” - Ancient Methods

Awesome DJ mix from Derek Plaslaiko… a sort of tribute mix to Richie Hawtin
Hello, my name is Derek. The path that led me to working for Rich stems back to the mid-nineties from simply listening and dancing to his sets. Around 1997, we became closer from when I worked at Record Time and would sell him records. In 2002, I was brought on to be his travelling technical assistant and from then I worked on other projects for him in the years that followed. In 2010, I was brought to Berlin to work compiling content for richiehawtin.com.
For my Minus Connections podcast, I decided to do a one-take all vinyl mix using only records that I associate with Rich’s sets over the years. Some are obvious classics, while others maybe not so much. However, ALL of these selected tracks hold a very sweet spot in my heart, and provide countless memories of Richie playing them. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making it. Thanks!
