Monday Morning Playlist: Larry Luk

This weeks Monday Morning Playlist features the musical tastes of Epidemik Coalition's and Process Clothing co-founder Larry Luk. A little background on Mr. Larry Luk would go something like this: Larry graduated from Emory University in Atlanta in 2003 with a BFA in Film Studies and upon completing his degree enrolled at The Portfolio Center where he spent two years honing his design skills. During his two year stint at TPC he met Georgios Saliaris who shared a similar vision. The two harvested this passion in the basement of TPC and founded what is known today as the Epidemik Coalition. Epidemik Coalition is a creative design agency in Atlanta that recently took their passion for fashion to the next level with the creation of an inhouse clothing line called Process Clothing that launched March of this past year. Process Clothing served as a tangible extension of their creativity and an avenue to experiment with new techniques and concepts. What transpired is a collection built on popular Atlanta culture with shirts and fitteds based on Braves mascot Chief Nokahoma to shirts entitled "Dirty Bird" eluding to the dance made popular by Falcons Jamal Anderson (but created by O.J. Santiago) to their newly christened Process mascot Maddie the Tomahawk Girl. Larry was kind enough to answer a few questions that give an indepth look at the company and that will be posted up on Wednesday. Enjoy.
"I'm not a morning person, and I prefer to keep to myself and my headphones on Monday mornings. Here's a mix of some stuff I've been enjoying lately, with some ATL flavor sprinkled in here and there. I've been a rock kid my whole life but ATL has changed me and I really enjoy listening to some of my favorite local DJs do their thing to tracks we all know. I live for remixes now. My intention for this playlist is to help someone get their day or week started with some rock and ending with some remixes and dubstep staples that've been pounding down the Ponce de Leon corridor of Atlanta. By the time I'm done listening to these tracks (in order) I'll be ready to be a contributing member to society again."
