In this episode of Tapedeck presented by SOL REPUBLIC, we take an in depth look at the importance of music in skate videos with none other than Richie Jackson. The rare, the psychedelic, the obscure—Richie has mined the cyber record store called the internet and discovered more music than your average skater. From Big L to Sizzla, and back to The Idle Race (which Richie skated to), his musical taste is as unpredictable as his wardrobe. “I truly believe that music is absolutely crucial in the world of the skate video.” Click on over to page 2 to check out Richie’s video parts he discussed.
