Tech Crunch: An Audiophiles Guide To Understanding Smart Speakers

I contributed to an article for Tech Crunch with Marshall Amp titled “An Audiophiles Guide To Understanding Smart Speakers” I touched base on some pretty cool tech specs and more. A good read for the audio heads for sure. Thanks Josh Mosh for asking me questions!

Output Closing: A Statement

NYC is becoming one big hotel where everyone wants to look nice and have a quiet life on a concrete island. It's a city. It will never be quiet here. Get over it. People who actually make a living recording & selling music, designing vinyl artwork, playing instruments and touring the world are taking a hit as every nightclub in town closes. Lotta people here congratulating the closure but what are you doing for all the kids/adults who dance, DJ, sing & produce electronic music to escape the stress of the city. There are no inviting community centers for people of all colors in NYC at all. These places are where people go to express themselves. Not all the popular music today is good or inclusive but for the music that is, people need somewhere to go experience it. Not everything at Output was bad or shitty or exclusive. So everyone bashing the club closure and hasn't gone to a club in years or if you aren't a professional musician then enjoy your quiet life as it's a few decibals less basic. If you can afford to live in Williamsburg then you can afford earplugs or maybe to even invest in opening a space for people to express themselves using audio-visual techniques. For everyone who is looking for a place to experience great sound, good dancing and a place to not think about your overpriced rent for a few hrs then come to Magick City in Greenpoint. Cheers

Haffmans and Neumeister: Upcoming Shoot

Doing an editorial photo shoot with Jácint Halász for Haffmans and Neumeister this Friday in Berlin. Excited to be connecting with an eye wear brand here and represent for my people back home in style.

I met up with the Flatbush Zombies & Kirk Knight at their show here at Astra a week ago and met Ryan of H&N backstage. After trying on the glasses, well everything else is history.

Shouts to Erick and the bros from Brooklyn for the introduction. Funny how it all works out in this life. Looking forward to the shoot and furthering a relationship with Haffmans and Neumeister. Stay tuned for the photos.

Who Am I? - A Moment

Who am I?

I am The Josh Craig.

Creator of all sorts.

My mission is to spread the positive vibration towards the direction of those in need of a wake up call to fill the void.

In this life you find yourself questioning the very things that give you a sense of satisfaction as if it isn’t truly guaranteed.

The reasons for the hesitations seem misplaced in heavens basement.

What have we become?

Ahh to hell with devious ones.

I speak what I speak than I sleep when I’m done.

Get back on my feet then I reach for the sun.

Stretch. Reflect. Stretch. Reflect. Stretch. Reflect.

The time has come.

For moments of atonement not to roam for fun.

I am who I am.

I’ll be who I be.

My purpose in this life is to lead those to be free.

Mallorca, Spain

Left the US for the 1st time and it has been a beautiful thing. Being treated as rooted tree in a sacred forest without interference from colonized minds has been allowing me to breath deep and process this forward progress. It isn't the flair or glamour that pushes me. It is simply knowing that I have finally stopped swimming upstream and found balance with the currents allowing me to flow with the water in unison through the rivers of life. 

I will be returning to Playa De Palma in 3 weeks to film a documentary about my life over the course of 4 days with Director Guillermo Broglia. I'm extremely looking forward this moment and will keep you all updated as these dots connect. Thanks for reading. Stay up
