Master remixer of all things Crailtap Daniel Policelli comes through with another banger, this time in the form of the Kenny Anderson 2017-2018 Mixtape. Policelli’s Return of the Flare re-edits probably hyped up Lakai’s most recent video more than most of the output from the company itself and his last round with Anderson footage was a fruitful one, so if you’re familiar with his back catalogue then you’ll be pressing play already. With Kenny Anderson’s footage spread throughout the recent full length Converse video Purple like hash oil across your next Rizla, it was only a matter of time before some online hero took it upon themselves to put the footage in one place for you’re enjoyment. Policelli is that hero, not only taking footage from Purple but also from Kenny’s other fleeting appearances in various video productions over the last year and a bit.
Anyway, the bulk of this one is made up of footage from the Converse video as well as some mega laid back curb crushing, awakening slappy envy in probably everyone who doesn’t have angled red curbs to wake up to every morning. The second half, meanwhile, is mostly Kenny cruising captured at skateparks and rickety wooden car park set ups, which to be honest is just as enjoyable to watch. Guest appearances by Justin Eldridge and Danny Montoya are a welcome appearance too!
Anyway, if you’ve ever wanted to know what it looks like when one of the world’s most stylish skateboarders does a fingerflip sweeper then look no further…
Kenny has been killing it for a long time now, first appearing in the public eye via various Planet Earth releases (starting with the 1993 promo Animal Farm), so here’s a mid 90s treat in the form of his section from Planet Earth’s Silver.
