Wim Wenders Documents Os Gemeos Tunnel Paintings

FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestTumblrShare

At 20/Out art fair, Wim Wenders presented a series of photographs documenting paintings by Os Gemeos in a disused German rail tunnel. Lit with lantern, the effect is terrific and the paintings themselves have a little more power than the duos usual work. Wenders shot the photographs for the “Out Sides” project.

In anticipation of his upcoming project with Celph Titled, Ninety Ninety Now, Buckwild is dropping a 9 song vinyl EP called Buckwild Presents… that includes some unreleased remixes, including this revision of G Rap and Nozir’s “Fast Life”.

Robbie quotes Buckwild speaking about this version:

“I worked on this somewhat later then I should have. Even though I did the album version and it was the single, Salaam’s remix was chosen before I even turned this in. I was going to use it on the white label, but went with the Nas and AZ songs instead”.
