DIG BMX has a featured article posted on their website titled “Etnies Summer Memories: At Home With Chase Dehart”. The article consists of some Insta Raw clips along with interviews and photography by Rob Dolecki with Ben Lewis (Benny L.), Tony Hamlin and Chase Dehart and spans their time spent filming in the Philadelphia area for the upcoming Etnies “Chapters” full-length video.
Every year, Pennsylvania is home to a number of video premieres, jams and other events that are hosted in the area. As part of our Year End web-series, we wanted to take a look back and highlight some of the more notable events that took place this past year. Before we throw away our 2014 calendar, we put together this list of ten events you should have had marked on your own calendars.
Five years ago today the now defunct Infamy BMX crew premiered their video “You Got That” at Kung-Fu Necktie in Philadelphia. The video featured sections from Fran Meehan, Otto Ayala, Evan Ayala, a Friends Mix, Brendon Reith, Ryan Landman, Eric Capone and Dan Conway. “You Got That” went on to be one of the most talked about videos of 2010 in the BMX community, which was remarkable considering the video was produced by what at the time could have been considered a virtually unknown crew from the suburbs of Philadelphia.
We have included all the sections from “You Got That” after the jump for your viewing pleasure. Whether this is your first time watching the video or if you own the physical DVD the video remains just as relevant today as it did five years ago. Enjoy.
Every year, we post countless videos on this site. They are here one minute and archived the next. As part of our Year End web-series, we wanted to take a look back and highlight the videos that we felt were the best of 2014. Unlike last year, this list is in no particular order and is not based off of our website stats. Instead, this years list is based off the videos that stood out the most while scrolling through the list of videos from this past year. So sit back, re-watch and we hope you enjoy.
Dig BMX has a gallery of photos posted on their website showcasing some of Chris Marshall’s unseen work. The gallery contains a few photos of Philadelphia area locals including Joby Suender (above), Ryan Niranonta and Paul Horan along with Jeff With Glasses, Sean Ricany, Ramel Williams and more.
