2007 -Basically, Lectrics was planed to be a clothing brand. We start our first t-shirts collection with a three top writers collection: Jay One BBC, Poet GFA and Serch NES. The t-shirts were limited and numerated at 50 ex. per model. We sold most of them in Germany (thanks to our friend at Yard 5 and also Overkill, Montana shop…). It was 8 years back!

2010 – Lectrics vs Molotow. A cool week-end sponsored by our spraypaint partner. We just invite our friends Aple76, Kash, Wobe, Jeroo and Easy and paint two walls in Lyon and Villeurbanne. The full recap of that wek-end is HERE. Aple76 did some nice white and black portrait of the writers present this week-end HERE. Our mate Supadope did also some top action pictures HERE

3rap video interview

2014 – The first and only video interview we have done, courtesy of our friend and producer Julien Vimeux. It happened when we saw the book RER C of the writer and archivist Rap UV TPK. We know him and also the ease with which he speaks about graffiti and the old good trainwriting period in Paris. The idea came to interview him about this unique time where many and many writers paint the RER C line. That book promotion video was also a good excuse to let him know about that time.

2008 – In June 2008 we start our first documented article that present the work of Sonick PNC through different posts. We called it the “Sonick week” and posted throw-up, hall pieces and some trains of his recent trips. He was the first to provide us with some content and was also connected to us as he was in charge of the print of our two first t-shirt series. The pictures are not anymore readable on Lectrics due to broken links but we found some of this pictures through the Internet. Here they are!

2013 – We started a sketch battle through Facebook. The results was not good as expected as it was more a “facebook popular battle” than a real style battle. Always hard to organise such a competition through social networks. Anyway, we had the chance to receive sketches from great writers like More, Paw, Kacao, Fasim, Rosy, Abyss, Dejoe…At the end,  about 65 sketches were published. Results  of the battle are HERE.

It’s HERE.
