Torrance, Calif, Jan. 26, 2016 – The Scion AV Presents The Baker Skateboard EP, a free five-song release curated by the skateboarding team featuring new music from Earthless, Pell, Zig Zags, Denmark Vessey and The Goat and The Occasional Others is available as a free download: http://www.scionav.com/2016/01/26/baker-skateboards-ep-earthless-pell-zig-zags/.
The collection is a varied mix, featuring not only the SoCal bands Zig Zags and Earthless, but also New Orleans rapper Pell, Detroit’s rising hip hop star Denmark Vessey, whom NPR said is “as expressive of hip-hop’s infinite potential,” and The Goat and The Occasional Others, which includes Baker Skateboards’ founder Andrew Reynolds and veteran skateboarders Shane Heyl, Kevin Long, Beagle One-ism as well as skateboard photographer Atiba Jefferson.
The Baker skate team recently took a road trip with a Scion iA and a Scion iM as part of the Scion x Baker Skateboards project (https://youtu.be/2SvRmIlsRdI). The journey started off at the Buttonwillow Raceway in Buttonwillow, California, where they met up with professional race car driver Ken Gushi. The crew showed what type of speed they could get on the vast expanses of asphalt, with or without an engine. Then they brought out the ramp so Baker boss Reynolds could go big over the bright yellow Scion TRD FR-S Project Car. Next they headed to San Francisco for a huge demo at the SoMa West Skate Park.
