Supreme and Vans Collaborator, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Drops ’90s Rave Mix

As is evident in Gosha Rubchinskiy‘s innovative but sinister take on streetwear, recent headlines about Russia make the country look pretty damn bleak. Gosha has been making clothing inspired by ’90s skate culture for the last few years, collaborating with Supreme and Vans, yearning for a time when the culture was more vibrant.

Now you can listen to a ’90s rave mix inspired by his latest threads (which are available in stores now) and peep his interview with clothier oki-ni for more about his inspirations.

Hi Gosha, first of all will you tell us how you first met your friend Nikita who produced this mix?
I know him from his girlfriend. They invited me to an underground rave in Moscow. Nikita played there and it was fun. He makes music and puts on his own parties.

The theme of the mix is ’90s rave. Why did you choose to focus on this genre?
It is a favourite theme for Nikita. I wanted to collaborate with him one day and you asking gave us a good reason!

It is popular in Moscow now, too. We have some cool parties here mixing old school rave with modern hip-hop and electronic music.

Where would you suggest someone listens to this mix?
It is good to listen to on a night drive through the Moscow’s suburbs.

Previously, your collections have referenced black metal, punk and now ’90s rave. Is there a genre of music that you don’t like?
I like all kind of music. The main thing for me is talent and special spirit.

So, what are you listening to at home at the moment to relax?
Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.”

The graphics in your collections often engage with Russian history. Although this mix firmly rooted in the recent history of the ’90s, what is it about the past that interests you? 
I like all cool things from the past. I like to connect all this with new moods and present things. You can feel the future in the air this way. Now I am researching old ethnic Slavic costumes and rituals.
