Yo! Hackathon Attempts To Show How Yo Can Grow

The something-like-a-phenomenon app of the moment, Yo, held a hackathon today in San Francisco in an attempt to prove that there can be more to Yo than just the Yo, yo. One hack that’s already climbed the charts to the number one spot on Product Hunt is YoServerIsDown — created by programmers Jarryd Lee and Hayden Lee. The app, which will send a yo to notify a subscriber when a server goes down (hence the clever name), is one of several mods that are attempting to move Yo from a messaging diversion that’s just silly to something more substantial.

Tourne De Transmission 2015 Spring/Summer "HERE" Lookbook

While many houses are taking their 2015 spring/summer collections to the runway, Tourne De Transmission hits the blogosphere to deliver its lookbook, titled “HERE.” For its latest sartorial journey, the London-based label climbs the sandy dunes of North Africa to look back at mainland Europe for the perfect mixture of wearable wardrobe staples with ethnic prints and patterns. Initially inspired by Bauhaus teacher Paul Klee’s North African trips, “HERE” looks closer at how African color schemes and textures influenced Klee’s work upon his return to Europe. This collection presents an examination in how certain cultures embrace Western clothing, but unknowingly fuse it with their own traditional garments to create a look that’s free strict, dated traditions. Further details within the range include prints inspired by Klee’s work, a muted color palette and choice fabrics sourced from all over the globe. Article source:...

Be A Mashup DJ With Turntable Founder’s Crossfader App

No Pro Tools, no record players, no DJ skills required. With Crossfader, you just swipe between songs, pick two you like, and tilt back and forth to mix them into a mashup. This is Turntable.FM co-founder Seth Goldstein’s plot to turn legions of young ravers into creators. The iOS app was built by Goldstein’s DJZ team, which is pivoting from a dance music news site into a Crossfader social hub that houses what happens when you combine Tiesto and Miley Cyrus or Diplo and Missy Elliot. This week Crossfader released a radio feature, so you can rock a party yourself or just play others’ sonic Frankenstein’s monsters, both on mobile and the web. “How do you build a global remix community?” Goldstein asks. “First we had to build the instrument.” Thanks to its use of the iPhone’s accelerometers, that’s how Crossfader feels. Like it’s alive in your hands rather than an app you’re interfacing with. To make a mix, you flick through regularly updated “packs” of the best snippets of songs, like the drums and hook of a Skrillex jam or the lyrics of one by Dr. Dre. Pick one on each side of the screen and they both play at the same time. Crossfader syncs the two songs’ timing, tempo, and key so they always sound good together. Keep your phone steady to hear them balanced in the mix, or tilt left or right to fade from one across to the other in real...
