Jacob Sutton’s L.E.D. Surfer
A Night-time Snowboarding Short Lights Up the Last of the Winter Snow
Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton swaps the studio for the slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France, with a luminous after hours short starring Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes. The electrifying film sees Hughes light up the snow-covered French hills in a bespoke L.E.D.-enveloped suit courtesy of designer and electronics whizz John Spatcher. “I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” says Sutton of his costume choice. “I’ve always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source.” Sutton, who has created work for the likes of Hermès, Burberry and The New York Times, spent three nights on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C to snap Hughes carving effortlessly through the deep snow, even enlisting his own father to help maintain the temperamental suit throughout the demanding shoot. “Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I’ve done in 20 years of snowboarding,” says Hughes of the charged salopettes. “Luckily there was plenty of vin rouge to keep me warm, and Jacob’s enthusiasm kept everyone going through the cold nights.”
Against The Wall
Prospector woos us tonight at Fontana’s with the release of their album Between 0 & 1. Won’t you be their Valentine?
In the face of a current trend of pastelled indie/folksy/retroverb/beach-wave, Prospector spits sexy black gasoline rock and lights it up. Prospector is a fucking band / An NYC band / A don’t let your daughter see this band, kinda band – especially on Valentines Day.
Between 0 & 1 has been one of the most anticipated releases in the LES/Brooklyn scene as Prospector’s addicted following has been amassing since the band formed in 2008. And all those turned heads will agree that the wait was worth it ’cause Between 0 & 1 just crushes forward and will leave you saying (in the words of John Norris) “Oh yeah, that’s what rock sounds like”.
For a good time, call on Prospector tonight: (THERE’S NO REASON TO BE ALONE)

8:30pm until 11:30pm
I Lost You
“I Lost You” is the 1st track off APTBS’ new ep Onwards To The Wall which drops tomorrow.
BONUS VIDEO :: “So Far Away”
This is the first spradosphere mix that is completely all new songs by mostly new bands. These tracks are floating around in the fringe out there…somewhere. Even though they’re new, these tracks struck me with how distant they sounded. It’s cold but a comforting mix of nostalgic synthy indie winter surf rock. This baby just flows so well together. I guess it was inspired by the old photographs of my family I looked at over the holidays. The cover image is an actual photograph of my mom with a few of her sisters on a family road trip that happened in the early 1950s. I fell in love with the “Little Women” detail my grandfather put on the back of the car since, at the time, he was the only man in the family. The photograph and the mix just connected. Hope it gets to you.
I Felt My Eye Expanding
Sometimes, you can actually feel it.
Loosely based on the iconic peephole in Psycho, I Felt My Eye Expanding is a ghost story. It works best with sound buckets strapped to your earballs as you walk and walk and walk. Follow the through-line or just let it be a filter as you submerge yourself in the world around you.

BEYOND DARK SPACE
spradosphere is proud to present its first ever guest curator.
Regina Rossi | is no stranger to spradosphere.com; she’s been an instrumental proponent in getting this site off the ground, so it seems only fitting that she be the one to carve the way for the upcoming series of guest MixTapes. Her dedication to the Scene, to Music, to Style is active, voracious and methodical. However, to truly describe her might best be left to hear for yourself, since, in her own words, “Beyond Dark Space is personal”.
BEYOND DARK SPACE covers a landscape that spans a unique auditorial palate as insatiable as it is final. Dark | Electric | Loud | Synthetic | Zoned | Beat | Sexy | Severe.
