Apparel & Prints Available at FeeLit

Based in New York, Sedgwick & Cedar celebrates innovation and creativity across multiple cultures. Originally formed as a way to celebrate Hip Hop’s earliest roots, the company has branched out to capture the excitement and relentless creativity found in emerging genres of the 1970s, 1980s New York.

At the tail end of summer, on August 11, 1973, neighborhood kids crowded into a small rec room at 1520 Sedgwick Ave, in the Bronx, to hear DJ Kool Herc spin. Eventually it got too packed to move, and the party headed down the block to Cedar Park. On that epic night Hip Hop culture was born. The Sedgwick & Cedar brand celebrates this humble birthplace and creative spirit. We pay homage to the genre, culture and innovation of the movement through exclusive designs that deliver history in every stitch.

Sedgwick & Cedar gives back to the often overlooked founders of the movement by providing royalties from S&C proceeds. Pioneers behind the brand include such legends as DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Caz, Afrika Bambaataa, Grand Wizzard Theodore, Coke La Rock, Sha-Rock, Melle Mel and Chief Rocker Busy Bee.

All items are available through hand-selected boutiques. Each article is limited-edition and incorporates iconic photography and art from now-timeless images by Jamel Shabazz and Joe Conzo as well as pristine reproductions of some of the original party flyers.

Sedgwick & Cedar’s mission is to reintroduce the rich, positive and often forgotten history of Hip Hop culture to a modern global audience.

Markalan - Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Markalan moved to Pacific Beach in 1994. During his first four years in San Diego, he worked as a photographer for the United States Navy. Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
