Heading to Distortion Copenhagen

Distortion Copenhagen

First of all, I know it’s been quit slow on posts on the blog lately. I’m planning a portfolio update soon so stay tuned for that, and also my brother and I have been writing a whole bunch over at Créol Brothers (in danish - but I’m sure most of you will at least appreciate the links).

I also finally got Twitter integrated on the blog (see bottom of page), check that space for frequent outbursts or follow me at @kriss_creol

Tonight I’m flying to Copenhagen to attend the yearly street party extraordinaire Distortion. Looking forward to hang out with my CPH friends and peeps. See ya soon!

It’s going to be an intense 4 days with a line-up ranging from techno legend Carl Craig (Detroit) to Berlin’s Queen of electro Ellen Allien, and of course local favorites Djuna Barnes, Kjeld Tolstrup, Hess is More vs Henrik Vibskov, Tomboy and Trentemøller – and new hyped names like We Are The World, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Viva Radio, Supermayer.

Keep updated on the festival at Créol Brothers, where we’ll be updating daily with photos and maybe even a interview or two.

cheers LaKriss… stay sweet!

Cut&Paste Amsterdam

Cut&Paste Amsterdam

Every hour is happy hour here. Amsterdam, after all, rides a high that most cities can only imagine. But forget the red-lit windows, the cannabis cafes, and the sex on sale. This city is home to world-class performances, priceless collections of classical art, up-and-coming fashion ateliers, and some of the most exciting architecture and design in recent memory.

The Cut & Paste Amsterdam event is coming up this thursday. This real-time design battle is sure to be super fun, so everyone in AMS should consider swinging by. I have a couple friends coming down for the event too, so will see ya’ll in the bar!

Art Rebels Butik

Art Rebels Butik

The store will function as an epicentre for the many associated artists, designers, filmmakers, DJ’s etc. ArtRebels emerged out of the wish to create interaction between the creative scenes of Copenhagen, and in this way make more noise in unity, than is possible alone.

Back home, the creative heads at Art Rebels, just opened the doors to their first store in Kødboderne. Check the flyer after the jump. If you’re not to busy with all the CPH Fashion Week escapades, you should go check it out. Also remember I AM #5 ‘A Night with the Knights’ coming up tomorrow at the extravagant Knights Hall of Fame (for guestlist: go here). Once again I’m responsible for invites and posters, updates on this soon. 

And for my peeps in Amsterdam: See you tonight at Sid Lee for the opening of our Starving Artists exhibition!

Still bloggin’

still open
Via FFFFound

It’s been a little quite here on the blog since i returned to the city of Copenhagen. I had a tight schedule which included a welcome-home-surprise-party thrown by my love Pernille, a bachelor party for my homie Pelle, and a birthday bash in Fredriksberg Have . Now I’m finally beginning to feel at home again, and slowly starting to take on freelance assignments while figuring out when to head back to New York. Feel free to contact me on hello[at]krisscreol.com for any freelance inquiries.
