Maestro Knows – Special Edition (Dave Swift)

July 6, 2011   Posted by Levi Maestro

This episode is special for a multitude of reasons. First, I have wanted to shoot an episode with Dave since I started Maestro Knows as the title has nothing to do with anything that I know but actually shooting everything in the style that I know which I learned through skateboarding. I grew up looking at Swift photos in Transworld since I was about 12 years old, his name was a brand to me before I came to meet him as a person. I am super happy now to watch this completed episode where you can see what a rad guy he is and how hard he still rips on his board!

    Great episode!

    If anybody is wondering what song is playing in the background at 00:12, it’s Eddie Kendricks – Intimate Friends. Also sampled by Common – Penny For My Thoughts, Alicia Keys – Unbreakable, Erykah Badu – Fall In Love, Dom Kennedy – In The Day Time, Chords – Internet Friends, and many more.

    I’m looking forward to a dope new season with you, Maestro!

    Yo Maestro is the dopest. I grew up 2 blocks from the Carlsbad Boardwalk and spent of days and nights on those same benches. Inspired a lot of us I see. Keep doing your thing and hopefully C’Bad keeps treating you well.
