Pong is Being Rereleased

March 20, 2017

PONG-Full-Size-Coffee-Table-new
Pretty much everyone has a coffee table in their house and pretty much everyone loves Pong, so a group of Uruguayan engineers have taken advantage of that overlap. They’ve brought Pong into the physical world, removing it from its previous pixelated build and building a physical, playable version into a coffee table. Like the original Atari game, the Pong paddles are moved by two large wheels on either side of the table, while the ball’s movement is enabled by magnets under the surface, and an LED panel at the top of the board keeps score. When the game is over and it’s time for more traditional entertainment, two covers flip over the wheels and the LED panel turns into a clock. The table can also stream music using Bluetooth and power up to four USB chargers. It comes in four color schemes, though we’re partial to the classic, with the old Pong logo and grayscale lined design.

With AFROPUNK’s September 24th date edging closer, the festival that celebrates multiculturalism and diversity announces a fresh bill of talent, with one of the most iconic performing artists of all time headlining: Grace Jones. Joining Grace are Laura Mvula, Kwabs, The Noisettes, Loyle Carner, Goldlink, Joe Kay, The Whooligan, Hannah Faith, Eden Hagos, MNEK, Lady Leshurr, Skinny Girl Diet, Jorja Smith, Big Joanie, Nova Twins, The Connectors, Mikel Ameen and more across the day. On top of this, there’ll be the SpinThrift Market hosting traders who make bespoke goods, crafts, and textiles, plus a curated food truck rally, pop up restaurants, arts and more.

An icon at the heart of the art, fashion and music worlds across four decades, Grace Jones will headline the first AFROPUNK London with a cosmic performance. Since the seventies Grace has carved her path as a true creator. Birmingham signer / songwriter Laura Mvula joins, her rich tones set for a soul-searching show. Neo-soul comes from South-London boy Kwabs, and ener- getic indie-punk from The Noisettes reunion. Rising star Loyle Carner adds a thoughtful, un- plugged element, whilst rapper Goldlink’s electronic-infused hip-hop sounds make a welcome US addition.

Soulection members Joe Kay, The Whooligan, Hannah Faith and Eden Hagos all step up to represent eclectic hip-hop beats, plus super-producer and London local MNEK will bring a twist of all things electronic to Alexandra Palace. One of the leading lights in the MC game, female rapper Lady Leshurr brings bars for days, then punk spirit shines through on Stage Three with Skinny Girl Diet, Big Joanie, Nova Twins and the The Connectors plugging in across the day. Also an- nounced are emerging London songstress Jorja Smith, and rap protege Mikel Ameen. All this on top of the already massive bill, including SZA, Akala – B.A.D, Dreadzone Riddim Section – Don Letts, Benjamin Booker, GAIKA, Ho99o9, Purple Ferdinand, NTS Radio + more.

AFROPUNK’s message is about “POWER TO THE PARTY,” encompassing education, political awareness and self-empowerment. Respect, breaking down stereotypes, and celebrating individu- ality are key to the AFROPUNK ethos, and it’s a ‘safe space / no hate’ zone for creativity. Lon- don’s first edition will welcome souls from all cultures and backgrounds for a day of positive energy and next-level entertainment. Get a feel for the AFROPUNK spirit by checking the video here.

Party is an oxymoron, it’s a gathering of many for a shared purpose and it’s also an outcast indi- vidual, it’s a lively social occasion as well as a gang – and the story of any party is never over, be- cause like naked cities and the metaphysical “I”, there’s always another take.

Power to the Party means trusting the friction, the transference of great capacity to the free spirit, belief in the high-heeled spark of the assembly, and the group mind’s ability to choose a glorious path. This isn’t about getting elected, or being protected; it’s about staking a claim. Join the party and feel its power.

A special homecoming for Hackney born AFROPUNK founder Matthew Morgan, London’s edition is one that’ll be significant for the festival organisers. On top of the music across the day, Alexan- dra Palace will play host to a vibrant space filled with artists, designers, exhibitions and food vendors, who’ll host a full agenda of extra activities. Attendees are encouraged to jump in and become a part of the AFROPUNK community through on-site pop-ups, art and stalls – it’s about creating an extended family of AFROPUNK with a united voice to be heard and celebrated. Part- ners for the UK’s first year include pioneering radio station NTS Radio, CRACK and a special stage partner TBA. On-site arts, stalls, food, DJ sets and extra’s to be announced in the coming months. Learn more at the AFROPUNK website: afropunkfest.com/london/

Freedom of expression, whilst honouring the power of individuality is encouraged. POWER TO THE PARTY – SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER – SOON COME

damolarufaidesignboom02

‘Isorinths’, designed by Damola Rufai, are a collection of isometric patterns that draw from the hustle and bustle of Lagos, Nigeria. their chaotic, colorful, and vibrant nature grows from a place where the journey from A to B is rarely a straight line. Stylistic influences come from a range of places, including african wax prints, south beach pastels, and rufai’s personal architectural background. Each variation of the series is created digitally, and printed on 100% cotton fabric. http://damolarufai.com/
