As you know, Ben Raemers passed away earlier this year from suicide. He is and will continue to be missed by many, and if you can contribute, there’s a donation campaign to raise money for charity in his name.

Our friend Richard Quintero did a good amount of traveling with Ben. He felt like he needed to put together something to convey, even in a small way, what it was like to spend time with Ben and enjoy the liveliness he brought with him everywhere.

So Richard dug through all his files to find every single thing he’d ever filmed with Ben to create this film in his memory.

Personality can be hard to capture on camera, but Ben’s oozed out of him naturally. He didn’t put on an act to be this fun and funny. It’s just how he was around everybody. As much as you’d want to skate with him, you’d also want to hit the town with him until dawn and keep the good energy going.

Skate with your friends. Talk to your friends. Most of all, tell them you love them. Thank you for always being yourself, Ben. We miss you.

jenkemmag – When Nike released the Adapt BB, the improved (and mid-top) self-lacing shoes we decided to make our Marty McFly dreams a reality and got our friend Taylor Nawrocki to see if the newest version of self-lacing shoes were really any better than the old bulksters. He linked up with “The Doc” (Alex Raspa) to try out of the newest shoe gimmick from the future. Filmed by: Richard Quintero & Alex Raspa Edited by: Richard Quintero MORE INFO:

jenkemmag – BUY THE VINYL: DIGITAL / STREAM: Surprise: we’ve pressed another record, and today we want to introduce you all to the boys behind the second release under Jenkem Recordings. Ace and Wyatt, who make music and perform under the names AceMo and MoMA Ready, have become staples in the underground electronic music scene here in New York. Our friend Mike Bloom (Musician & OG resident of the Jenkem House in upstate New York) introduced us to them and suggested we meet up to skate LES and talk music. We hit it off pretty naturally and being fans of Drum & Bass, Techno House and most genres of electronic music, we were fans of what they did. This one was extra special because for the first time ever, the two friends decided to join forces under the alias AceMoMA for this EP with us. This is our second release under Jenkem Recordings, which we are hoping to shape as a music platform to empower other friends, skate-inspired artists and just shit we like, pretty much. The AceMoMA EP is available today on vinyl via our shop, and digitally on all other platforms where you can buy/stream/steal music:
