3 FEET HIGH AND RISING

DE LA SOUL

1989

Music videos of all possible genres played a huge part during my youth. Watching them on Mtv when that was actually still a cool channel and for sure Yo! Mtv Raps got me in a way closer to the artists. Not being based in the USA, videos and magazines were my windows to the hip hop culture in the States because back then I hardly had access to the internet and the internet was for sure not what it is nowadays…

Combining my collection together with those awesome music videos is for me the perfect way to put together several art forms being photography, video and not to forget the art of collecting itself… Also creating that nice environment for you to check out your favorite albums and videos.

I’m really lucky and blessed to have had old days to start collecting as a lot of the older albums in my collection are now out of print and when you find them there is a serious price tag hanging on them. All items you encounter on my website and social media come from my personal collection.

Another goal I try to reach via the website is to pay respect to the hip hop pioneers. It’s important to keep everybody aware of who paved the way for today’s artistsThe music industry is such a fast moving train that some people might forget where it all began.
