BMX Soundsystem: Put Your Block On Blast

Basszilla 2

Lose the jambox for a minute. The cool kids are blastin big beats on BMXs-- so says Made In Queens, a short film that chronicles this new trend among Trinidian teenagers in Queens, NY. The film documents their interest in kitting out whips with max megawatts.

“In this age of obsessive video sharing and social networking, nearly every action is designed and packaged for public consumption. Especially with young people,” says co-director Joe Stevens. “The immed­iate charm of (this) crew is that they’re the exact opposite of all that. There is nothing calculated or self-conscious about who they are. They’re just a group of friends doing some­thing to challenge themselves and have some laughs. It’s a story which would have never come from kids who were born here.”
