METCHAMixtape: Blake Barash
What's playing on Blake Barash's shoedio? We know the answer.
As you can discover in our Q&A, the sneaker customizer uses his graffiti background as a booster to his art on leather & suede pairs — all exclusive, all hand-painted.
Besides discovering special stories of his clients for personalized pieces, such as the NFL players' cleats Barash created, he keeps inspired with his soundtrack.
Tap play on his mixtape below.
Each track has a different meaning for him. In Barash's words, "My Way by Calvin Harris tells me how to grab life by the horns and do it my way. Plus it has a good beat for working."
Big Fax by Anik Khan, for instance, is his pick because it tells an immigrant's story by a Queens, NYC-based Hip Hop artist. Blessings by Flowmads ft. KBong, according to Barash,
"encourages you to shine now and don't wait. It tells you to count your blessings and be thankful."
Talk about an upbeat workflow 🤞.
