Fresh Out The Box (Radio) has had some colossal episodes as of late…partly/mostly due to the electrifying live talent we’ve had the pleasure of bringing in to the station. Last Thursday, we were joined by Mishka NYC Co-Owner and Creative Director, Mikhail Bortnik (to pick-up where we left off with the Mishka-related bidness on FOTB), and super-elusive-producer/stand-up funnyman, EPMDenny (who has, most notably, provided bangers for Bay Area cloud rap masters, Main Attrakionz).
Inside, you get an insightful conversation about the streetwear giant’s plans for 2012 and then some…here are some transcribables:
On Mishka NYC’s humble office/studio beginnings in Brooklyn (coincidentally, in the same building BBOX Radio‘s winter home):
There was like 9 of us crammed in here along the sides (with) New Era boxes in the middle…
On receiving eXqo’s Lost In Translation:
I think it was on my desk either that afternoon or the next day with a 40.
…plus mucho antics with EPMDenny and co: obtaining rare consumables, beats from 2004 in 2011, being a part-time comedian in NYC, and then some.
