Celebrate the world's greatest sporting event on BBC 1Xtra

With the ball just dropping for the 2014 FIFA World Cup yesterday, Diplo kicked off  with his hour-long mix on the BBC 1Xtra Mistajam. The Brazilian location of the soccer showdown seems to have had some impression on the mix, as much of the mix is heavy with Latin-American verve, not to mention some big-name remixes of […]

Bend it like Paul Smith... in soccer decorum

To best accessorize the World Cup, Paul Smith has created a limited-edition run of 250 designer footballs that bear his signature stripe.

Madman Mundt’s Epic Moments In Life

There are a handful of moments in my life that I will always consider epic. The time I snuck into a Yucatan cenote during a hurricane, and had the whole thing to myself and my imaginary girlfriend. Interviewing Iggy Pop. Hitting 184 mph in a Bugatti Veyron in 3 seconds flat. Seeing Rage Against the […]


This video does for fútbol what the Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” does for partying (find this video on ur own). Only, instead of making me want to ingest copious drugs, beat people up, steal cars and bang strippers, it makes me want to lace up the ol’ cleats and sharpen those corner kick skillz. […]
