A nice snack from the Big Apple which seems to be coming back to a bit more normality during this pandemic.

DC & Bronze 56K present some real skate nerd shit thrown in a pot together with some real G skating and an eclectic soundtrack the result is LUKODA.

This is not a bronze 56 official video but it sure has all the people you know and love from the Queens-bred crew.

Start your week right! New York’s Bronze 56k finally launched their new video feat.: Chachi, John Shanahan, Adrian Vega, Josh Wilson, Dick Rizzo and many more others.

Watching this video you can’t help but get the feeling that the (once) big DC shoes are entering limbo. About two years ago they decided to scrap a plethora of big-name riders and started to focus more on a nostalgia led movement based on the east coast.

Some people from the Philly based Sabotage crew and NYC based John Shanahan got pushed to the forefront, while at the same time, Josh Kalis got elevated to ICON status. The rekindled interest in his older shoe designs is an authentic movement but let us not forget that DC also sponsor: Thaynan Costa, Evan Smith, Tristan Funkhouser and to some extent Wes and Tiago who somehow represent a bridge between the old and the “new” identity of the brand.

Still, DC seems to be somewhat torn between the multiple lanes it tries to occupy leading with “Street Sweeper” to a somewhat eclectic video that somehow manages to balance all these different facets of the “game”. But the question remains what is next and how will they keep reinventing themselves to stay relevant.

Maybe you “the viewer” can deduct an early answer from this video. Enjoy!

DGK is back with a new video, showcasing some new faces and to be honest a highlight for us was Jahmir Brown, who reminds us of a young Kevin “KT tha god” Taylor.

The future seems bright if DGK keeps putting on guys like this.

Once again it’s LurkNYC in the streets next to the homeless and working class people. Although I’m actually an avid fan of VX footage, I’m always impressed by LurkNYC’s HD clips that still manage to keep that certain “roughness” alive somehow.

Featuring Carlos Mendoza, Giorgio Villone, Giovanni Vacca, Grady Smith, Jazz Leep, Joey Guevara, John Shanahan, Kentaro Powell, Mikey Perdomo, Nico Barrio and Pat Hoblin.

Always nice to watch those cutty NYC spots with some classic Biggie playing in the background. Another new volume of Mean Streets by LurkNYC that is on point. Featuring Carlos Mendoza, Thomas Delcaprio, Nick Barrio, Grady Smith and more.

LurkNYC is back with another volume of Mean Streets. Nick von Werssowetz this time took out his HD camera to film not just in New York, but also in Montreal. Featuring Giovanni Vacca, John Shanahan, Mark Poole and Charles Deschamps, who really knows how to slappy.

New York City meets Boston! Once again a great edit by the guys of LurkNYC accompanied by smooth beats and mean lifestyle shots. Featuring Giovanni Vacca, Mathieu Thibeault, Danny Dipalo, Will Mazari, Aiden Chenard, Alex Odonahoe, Mark Poole, and John Shanahan.
