After Cliché’s Bon Voyage and Sweet/SK8MAFIA’s Stee we decided to focus on the next major European video release : Element Europe’s “Hold It Down”. To do so properly we got a banger from each of their riders (Karsten Kleppan,Phil Zwisjen, Jarne Verbruggen, Ross McGouran, Ruben Rodrigues, Nassim Guammaz, Guillaume Mocquin and Madars Apse) and asked them and their main filmer Niki Waltl to tell us about working on the project. The least I can say is that a few of them came up with some pretty funny answers…
What I forgot to mention is that 115 is a bit of an interview issue as there isn’t a single tour article inside. Instead we have two Effects, one with Germany’s Wilko Gruning, the other with Spain’s Christian Sanchez, an expand with French ripper Steeve Ramy and an epic 20 page Mark Frolich interview, entirely shot on black and white film by Lars Greiwe.
Oh yeah and in case you didn’t recognise him, the guy powering up some serious over vert on the cover is Phil Zwisjen.
The mag should be out out towards the end of this week so keep an eye out for it!
