Higher Brothers [China] September 12, 2016 02:33

In the past few years we've seen an uncommon trickle become its own popular wave in the underground music scene.
With artists such as Kohh, Keith Ape/The Cohert and Rich Chigga emerging from Asia and breaking way into the rap game, there is now a open lane for artist from Asia to enter underground rap while sticking to their native tongue.
The latest artists to take this path are The Higher Brothers. A collective made in China, that have a major American Hip-Hop influence. With very modern underground rap beats and a new age flow, these kids have been dropping some dope music in 2016 along with videos that include a lot of dabbing, hype, and anime references.
Check out their latest video for the group's song called "Black Cab".
With a obvious appreciation for Asian culture, we find a special appreciation in the Higher Brothers because of their open interest in the anime and cosplay scene! Making multiple references towards anime, wearing Dragon Ball Z shirts and having a song simply titled "Cosplay", it seems that Higher Brothers are implying that their rapper persona is as serious as a cosplayer embodies his/hers character...which can be Very serious.

Organic DMT x Latokyo August 30, 2015 21:16

Once again, Organic DMT teams up with Latokyo to bring you a collection of 5 exclusive wire wrapped crystals. For this collaboration, Organic DMT joined us on a trip to the country of Japan where we selected the crystals from locations in Tokyo and Kamakura. 


These crystals were cleansed right by the Great Buddha in Kamakura, Japan. The term "Cleansing" is the idea of letting crystals absorb the energy from its surroundings, promoting a clean frequency of power to each crystal. The cleansing process is started by a host (Organic DMT) and begins with meditation driven by the host. After this cleansing is complete, each crystal is individually handcrafted into wire wrapped pendants by the specialist himself.

Organic DMT has become known for his crystals and crystal cleansing techniques throughout the world. Many have come to love his unique crystal wraps and many claim his techniques create a distinct elevation to the energies associated to each crystal. We are excited to work with Organic DMT to bring you a collection of crystal wrap necklaces with so much meaning to Latokyo.

All 5 crystal necklaces will be available exclusively on our website wearlatokyo.com Friday, September 4th.

Check out Organic DMT's website to find out more about him and his art. OrganicDMT.com
