Welcome to the second edition of the Grafiti Tapes series, a new concept brought to you by Luca Lozano, Planetluke.com and Klasse Recordings. Grafiti Tapes marries graffiti with music and music with graffiti, each tape features a luminary of the underground world and showcases their talent via a limited edition tape cassette release. Make no mistake, this is no sassy street art project. Grafiti Tapes is primarily concerned with the real deal underground vandalisms and will continue to feature artists with a traditional approach to all things spraypainted.
The second in the Grafiti Tapes series features notorious Swedish badboy, Nug. Part of the infamous VIM Crew, Nug has made his name and reputation through his wild and expressionistic action paintings. Owner of a highly original and unique style, Nug ranks world class.
His tape for Grafiti Tapes features musical collaborations with other writers as well as his own solo work. The style of the music fits well with his art, both being untamed, noisy and restless.

While we where working on the book 3 LETTERS we also recorded this short documentary about EGS. We hooked up with him in his studio, walked the streets of Helsinki and ended up in an old abandoned factory in Tallinn, Estonia. Get to know how it all started in Helsinki, how people started interrailing and building up a international network and of course how he got the name EGS.
