In a world of quantity over quality, Gleamin – Quit Dreaming is the exact opposite of all of that. It’s fair to say there hasn’t been a more anticipated BMX flick since Criminal Mischief and of course Deadline. The pressure built up as the months went on and GLMN was there, but nowhere at the same time. That being said, it does not disappoint. A true masterpiece, arguably the best Canadian BMX film ever made.
If you aren’t familiar with Luke Santucci, Luke grew up in Edmonton, AB riding with the likes of Jaumell Campbell, Jared Chilko, Mike Boag, K Will, Chaunch, Ren and more. The son of 5 time grey cup champion Angelo Santucci (find the reference in the dvd) would eventually move out of Edmonton to Vancouver, where he’s been living for the last 6-7 years. Luke is well known for his riding but has been somewhat underrated in his filming/ editing forever. Quit Dreaming shows how incredibly talented Luke is behind a camera and editing software, with seamless links from section to section, great soundtrack and great fish angles with his modded mk2 (nah son).
Doing a DVD review is never easy. There’s no real reason to explain the radness of this DVD but here’s a few reasons you should grab a copy:– It will make you want to go to Vancouver badly (or feel like you are already there for the duration of the video)
– This is a legit crew video, all of these guys are friends and chill/ride together on a regular basis and it shows
– Luke kills it at filming/editing
– Jaumell Campbell, Taylor Elvy, James Steele, Dave Scott, Andy Roode, Matt Desson, Brad Hill, Cory Beal, Ryan Hiebert, le Luke, Mike Boag, Jared Chilko, amongst a ton more have clips/ sections. All these guys are legends.
– Jordan Hango has last section and it’s typical Hango…
– Luke put years of time and effort into this, rather than taking the typical web route, we have a lifelong physical copy of a masterpiece in Canadian BMX history
This could drag on forever but essentially the underlying message is that you’ll be disappointed with yourself years from now if you don’t get a copy of this dvd. This film is 100% Canadian BMX at it’s finest. No Bullshit, just friends riding their city for all the right reasons. Take note kids, this is what it’s all about, QUIT DREAMING
Kerr just hit us up with his last and final North American Street Jingle mix. Kerr has recently relocated to Glasgow, Scotland from Victoria, BC. How fitting that Kerr drops this feel good homie mix on Canada Day. There are some real creative moves in this. Give it a watch!
Following up the first World Deece starting Roster Mixtape is a tough act to follow but James Dean and fellow Vancouver shredders (Carl Arnett, Chance Campbell, Chris Henry, Drew Morton, Grat Cox, James Dean, Jordan Hango, Ky Brisebois, Mike Matsen, Orlando, Brad Hill, Regan Miller, Ryan Hiebert and Thomas Arden) have really killed it in this V2 mixtape. There’s a ton of rad stuff from the World Deece super pro team throughout so hit play already and get trippy.
Filmed and edited by James Dean, check out Worlddeece.com
It’s almost that time of year folks, summer is almost upon us. While we wait for it to kick in full swing, lets pretend it’s already here. In this shorty we have Andrew Schubert, Zach Rampen, Andy Roode and Ryan Hiebert rolling around Strathcona on a sunny weekday afternoon.
In December 2011, 11 Canadians made the trip to Barcelona for no other reason than having fun riding bikes with friends. And that we did. Looking back on this trip makes you realize that through all the craziness of life, it will be trips like that this that you always remember and cherish as some of the best times ever.
There was never any intention of putting this full length DVD online, but if it can serve as motivation to anyone who has not yet grabbed a copy of the DVD to take a trip with buddies it will have been worth it.
When’s the next Embassy trip boys?
Featuring Greg Flag, Taylor Elvy, Dillon Lloyd, Jeff EVans, Cory Beal, Ryan Hiebert, Sean Cooke, Jeremy Deme, Albert Krolikowski, Luke Santucci, Prashant Gopal. Filmed by Sean Cooke, Jeremy Deme and Luke Santucci.
