For the Holiday Season this year, we reached out to our friends/fans to ask what promotion they’d like to see. Overwhelmingly, the requests came back “something for charity”. Not ones to disappoint, we snapped into action and started talking about Detroit charities that we would like to support. After much discussion, we landed on a great one, The Detroit Creative Project.
The DCP teach kids inside the city of Detroit the skill of improvisation. Improvisation teaches great lessons about life, and about how to be a better citizen – with family and friends, at work and in your community. At its core, it teaches you to listen, that it isn’t all about you, and that you are not responsible for figuring everything out, or having the perfect answer at a moment’s notice. In this day in (a social media) age, these are needed skills.
So, from now (December 5th) until January 5th, we will match and donate your shipping costs to the DCP so that they may continue their work inside of the city of Detroit. For a more in-depth look at The Detroit Creative Project, watch the video below. Then, start shopping.

We are very excited to announce our first product to stray from our apparel roots, The Mover Art. Checking in at a whopping 25″x39″, this piece of wall art was inspired by old trolly signs and quietly begs for your attention whilst adding a bit of old Detroit into whatever room you see fit for it.
Love it or hate it, the Detroit People Mover has been ushering around business professionals, sports fans and tourists alike for 25 years and is a visual staple of the city. The Mover Art celebrates this staple of the city by showcasing six of the 13 stations.
The Mover Art is printed on thick French paper in Ypsilanti, Michigan by VG Kids and ships via USPS in a mailing tube.

Summer has come and gone and fall is settling in pretty quickly. As the season changes, so must our Blonde Mix. So, to bring a little extra heat to your bonfire, we tapped Detroit DJ and graphic designer Rebecca Goldberg, A.K.A. Cash4Gold. Clocking in at just over an hour, Cash’s Blonde No. 7 mix turns you out, running the gamete of minimal house to beat thumping EDM.
To get more in the mind of the artist, we sat down with Cash to ask her some questions about design, DJing and Detroit.
1.) Tell us about you and your ties to Detroit.
Born and raised in the suburbs, have been living in Hamtramck for just over a couple of years now. I have many great memories in Detroit, and have had a lot of opportunities here. I do eat, dance, work and shop in Detroit. I am also proud of Detroit because of what it stands for and means to me personally, and to us as a culture. Like so many others, this is my home. It is all of our duties to take care of our home and respect our home.
2.) How did you find your start in DJing?
I have always been very passionate and about music. I found that my taste was very ecclectic and enjoyed sharing what I like with others. DJing is an opportunity to do this for long periods of time to a wide and varying audience. I tinkered with computer mixing software and practiced that way for about a year. A friend of friends finally gave me the chance to play out and took me under as a pseudo-apprentice. I was not allowed to even think about bringing a computer and was quickly engrossed in the ‘right way’ to DJ. About a year after that I started getting my own gigs, invested in equipment, and can definitely match beats without a button click!
3.) Is the party scene inside of Detroit dead?
I think it’s far from it. There are a lot of different types of people trying to make different things happen. There are great parties in Detroit proper as well as the Metro area happening all the time. Local talent is very active and I think creating the right relationship with a venue or promoters is key in keeping it successful. Working together is so necessary, especially here, and I think the most successful parties and series events understand this.
4.) You’re a graphic designer as well as a DJ, do you find those two things work cohesively or separately?
I am excited to have found a way to have what I am most passionate about, music and design, functioning symbiotically in regards to my career. I have met so many people through music who are in need of graphic design; anything from their own business cards, to flyers for events or record artwork. I have also met people involved in music through different design and art projects as well, so the opportunities definitely compliment each other in both regards.
5.) Who are your inspirations?
Madonna is definitely my biggest influence as a businesswoman and industry professional. I have admired and followed her career for what seems like my entire life. My family and friends are really supportive of my endeavors and their encouragement is always very inspiring and valued. Musically I am inspired by the likes of BT, Nelle Hooper, Ben Hillier, producers that have been innovative throughout long careers still in the making.
6.) Do you think Detroit will ever rise back to what it was? What do you think it will take for that to happen?
For anything to change and rise up after such a debilitating situation, innovation and adaptation need to occur. So will Detroit ever be what it was? It’s hard to imagine the ‘Paris of the West’ being right here, right now. I do think it could be something huge and inevitably different than any city, and any Detroit, that has ever existed before. The art/music/culture scenes really are thriving. There is so much opportunity to brainstorm and network amongst fellow creatives in every field. Business ARE coming to the city, restaurants ARE successful and maybe the Tigers will win the next time around… It’s definitely going to take more time, but I think we are headed in the right direction.
7.) Who’s doing big things in Detroit that you want to shout out?
Definitely have to say hello to the MOTORCITYBLOG family. They are one of the greatest teams I’ve ever felt a part of. A family, representing Dietroit and showcasing everything great about where we are. Shout out to the Tandem Entertainment crew. House music is alive and well in Detroit especially thanks to these guys who throw some of the best parties I’ve played and danced at. DJ Alexi – this is a thank you shout out – See #2.
8.) What do you want to accomplish that you have yet to?
I really want to get deep into the producing aspect of things. A while back another DJ told me that eventually existing music would not be ‘satisfying enough’ anymore. I would hear something, or think of my favorite song, and maybe want to add to or manipulate it. I would want to make remixes… and then my own work. He was right about all of it.
9.) What else should people know about you?
I work really hard, always have. I am very passionate and dedicated to the career paths I am on and I hope this shows in my work. I do what I do because I love it, and I encourage everyone to do the same for themselves.
10.) Where can people see your work, or see you play live?
Please visit my website to follow my Design career and check out my portfolio. I play out at events with Tandem Entertainment and other special events around town. Following me on Facebook or checking out listen.to/CASH4GOLD is the best way to keep posted on upcoming gigs.
11.) What were your thoughts when curating Blonde No. 7?
I wanted to keep a sort of “haunting” theme throughout and build to something reminiscent of a carnivale or gypsy party. To me it sounds very Thriller influenced, and I’m really excited about the way it turned out. I hope everyone enjoys it and grooves to it this season.
