We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings last year and it’s been a great ride! Due to our growth we’ve decided to make the family at the Chill Mega Chill headquarters just a bit bigger. Read on to get a little more acquainted with the minds behind the madness.
Tripp Mostertz — Tripp is our fearless leader. CMC is largely his baby and it’s been his vision and drive that has gotten us to where we are today. His organizational skills and go-getter attitude is going to take him places when he starts medical school this coming fall. Keep tabs on his blog The Asclepiophone (previously know as Cool Things I Find) as the worlds of medical science and independent music come crashing together down in South Carolina.
Ian Stanley — This is me. I was so honored that Tripp thought enough of me to ask me to go in with him on a cassette tape label. It’s been more awesome than I could have ever imagined and I’m so excited to see where it ends up. To find out what I’m up to outside of Chill Mega Chill check out my music blog Cactus-Mouth.
Tim Thompson — I’m sure that many of you will recognize Tim as the mastermind behind the vibe-heavy LA blog Smoke Don’t Smoke. When Tripp and I were trying to think of people to bring on board, Tim was way up at the top of the list. Fortunately for us (and our listeners) he was excited to get involved. His taste in music is impeccable, his flair for style is just plain cool, and on top of that he is a super nice guy. Expect Tim and all of his swagger to take us to infinity and beyond.
Kenneth Pennington II — I actually went to college with Kenneth in Philadelphia. Before we were friends I always admired his artistic ability and now I like to tell people that Kenneth is probably the most gifted artist that I know personally. He runs a small clothing label out of Washington D.C. called Cvlt Magick and also an art/fashion/music blog called Slo Fuckn Flo. We’re looking forward to seeing Kenneth put his creative edge to use here at Chill Mega Chill.
Jacob Lee Tobin — Our site here has gone through several molting stages and I think you will agree that its current iteration is easily the best it’s ever looked. It’s nothing short of gorgeous and it is all thanks to Jake Tobin. We got to know Jake through all the code wizardry he did for PORTALS (to which Tripp, Tim, and myself all contribute), but he also is musically inclined. Check out his web design as well as his Florida art collective Werepossum for more of his work.
