We feel so blessed to have Phil Wood as a sponsor of TL&R. Phil has some of the best Track Hubs ever produced, and those hubs what really keeps most of LA spinning (if you know what you are doing). Started way back 1971 (history link, get some knowledge), with their first hub and then making a slew of amazing products ever since (Tenacious oil, anyone?).

We all need music that really gets your legs pumping, beats to keep you spinning down those hills, and cutting lines through Trafik (LoL). Some of L.A.’s top labels contributed to the TL&R, creating a movie that’s stacked with hits from beginning to end featuring Silversun Pickups, Hot Hot Heat, Minus The Bear, Santogold, Darker My Love, Futurecop!, Sea Wolf, Eulogies, Willowz, and tons more.

Silverlake based Dangerbird Records was a major sponsor, working with us to create a soundtrack that matches the fast-paced action of fixed gear riding with the unique vibe that defines Los Angeles. Also onboard the production was Dim Mak Records, you know Steve Aoki knows what’s wheelie gewd. Adding to the eclectic mix were I Heart Comix and Anticon, who were down to rep L.A. and fixed gear culture.

But don’t sleep on hip-hop. When I ride, it’s mostly what is pumping through my lines in the street. L.A. street poet BAMBU threw down some tracks, along with our homeboy INTUITION. The Bay is also represented by CROWN CITY ROCKERS, and from the SWTBRDS label DaVinici and StreetMedia. East Coast MC, Billy Drease Williams rounds it out with some NY flavor.

Some of our fans posted a couple soundtrack mixes on Soundcloud, check them out below. If you think you can do better, send us a link to your remix and if we like it we’ll send you a TRAFIK prize bag full of goodies. For a full soundtrack listing and to download tracks go to our MEDIA page on www.toliveandrideinla.com

We were up in the bay this past weekend for the Red Bull Ride & Style event. Hern was the only LA racer invited to compete against some of the best “Alleycat” racers in the world. We follow our rider Hern, to every race this past weekend. Our boy did LA proud. Racin hard in three races over three days, placing well each time. Good stuff from our Lil Hern!

Another sick Artist to ride to, Intuition. I ruined these songs for you and the follow up to it, are such a great albums and concepts. Heavy Rotation at my house. Fake collaborations, so good. “Girls like me“, is pretty dope too, nice rhymes, solid beats. I would love to go see my man at a show, but I don’t see any dates coming up. Keep your eyes peeled here and be sure to go cop one of Intuitions albums, or grab the the TL&R DVD when it drops on 6/21/11!
