Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M), an elusive digital street culture magazine that conducts interviews via iMessage (& text/DM) recently partnered with Dame Dash Studios to create their TV show called “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S). As a publication, Döuble.Eye.Mag is highly selective with who they work with/interview. They’ve connected with household names such as fashion designer Rick Owens & his wife Michèle Lamy, Matthew Williams (Givenchy creative director), Lil Uzi Vert, Nardwuar, Playboi Carti, etc.
Recently Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M) continued its evolution (not change) from a digital publication to a dynamic creative space called “Ävant Gard.e.m” — pushing boundaries through fashion, music, art & everything in between! Their mission still remains the same yet their goals have extended into other visionary spaces that go beyond a conventional magazine. Some may ask why the name change? After they took an introspective examination of their brand evolution over the past year, “Ävant Gard.e.m” more accurately aligned and reflected their new heights & growth areas via the creation of their “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S) TV show, partnership with Dame Dash Studios, inspiring Pharrell & Virgil Abloh by creating their unique/unorthodox interview style (iMessage/text/DM interviews), partnering with the elusive celebrity stylist @Vinrelo to co-produce her “Stylist Fashion Show” (S.F.S) & launching their music sector “Döuble.Eye.Records” as well. To keep it simple, our name didn’t change it EVÖLVE.D.
Let’s switch gears to discuss their boundary pushing TV show! The “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S) mission is to show underprivileged youth that style is priceless & doesn’t cost a penny (what matters most is how you put it together). While also highlighting upcoming Black creatives that continue to advance & influence the fashion industry. “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S) is not only a TV show but it is a platform for upcoming creatives to share their work & artistic expressions with the world. Fashion creatives & creatives across all industries will be able to submit work to be shared on the TV show platform. From fashion & music, to NFT’s & contemporary/performance art!
Work can be submitted by DM’ing @Ävant_Gard.e.m on Instagram or applying on their website Doubleeyemag.com/pages/apply-for-position
Each episode will be comprised of a series of “Thrift Störe Challenges” (T.S.C), celebrity interviews, fashion therapy by @Vinrelo, & more! Unlike most TV shows, C.T.S will only release 1 episode per month. The first episode airs December 25th on Dame Dash Studios (streaming app), Tubi, Fox Soul, & clips will be released on the Döuble.Eye.Mag YouTube channel as well. The C.T.S trailer & interview with Dame Dash are on both the @Ävant_Gard.e.m Instagram page & Dame Dash’s page too.
The official “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S) exclusive merch collections released November 2nd and a majority of the pre-orders have already sold out. Only 333 pieces per collection will be released & once they sell out they will not be re-released/re-stocked again. The C.T.S merch is titled “The Thr333 Cöllections” & each collection represents powerfully deep meanings that come together as one.
The first collection is titled “Love…D The Cöllection”. It represents liberation for all & unison amongst humanity through honoring those we have lost. The second collection is titled “The D.E.M Cöllection” & it represents the true essence of everything Döuble.Eye.Mag stands for. The third & final collection is titled “SÖD x D.E.M x PÖD”. It represents the destruction of all limitations, barriers, & self-imposed restrictions with honesty, transparency, & truth.
Pre-orders are available now for 33 days & are only being sold exclusively a DoubleEyeMag.com/collections/frontpage
When asked to discuss “The Thr333 Collections” Ävant Gard.e.m by Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M) responded by saying, “We make pieces, not clothes. Pieces are timeless, clothes are temporary. In our eyes, the shirt itself is a canvas & our designs are the art that creates the piece. Therefore, as creatives ourselves, we encourage you to do whatever you want with our pieces. Wear them, frame them, hang them, burn them, cut them, Love them.”
Ävant Gard.e.m by Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M) also collaborated with the elusive celebrity stylist named “Vinrelo” to co-produce her high profile event called “Stylist Fashion Show” (S.F.S) which will be featured in the 2nd episode of “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S). The “Stylist Fashion Show” (S.F.S) took place on November 6th in New York & its purpose is to provide a platform for stylists to showcase their talents & skills. Since the mission is dedicated to stylists Vinrelo decided to decline a plethora of New York fashion week offers in order to emphasize her main point that S.F.S is a platform for stylists & not designers because stylists don’t have a platform. The future of S.F.S will be “Vinrelo” touring around the world teaching professional stylist courses. Her courses will consist of a plethora of interactive modules for upcoming stylists & creatives in the fashion industry who are eager to learn new skills, refine their skills, & expand their portfolio(s) as well!
As a dynamic creative space, Ävant Gard.e.m by Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M) decided to make the soundtrack to the “Celebrity Thrift Störe” (C.T.S) a fully-streamed NFT music album. The soundtrack is titled “Love…D The EP” by their very own artist “Me -Miself- i” (pronounced like “Me Myself & I”). The hit single from the soundtrack is called “The Bad One (Misery Loves Company)” & was recently trending on one of the most popular mixtape platforms “Spinrilla” along with Tik Tok as well!
Three hard hitting “Neo Melodic Rap” singles from the soundtrack were released on October 2nd (via spinrilla) & the entire soundtrack released November 2nd on LÜM, Soundcloud, Datpiff, Spinrilla, Livemixtapes.com, & Youtube. The music sector of Ävant Gard.e.m by Döuble.Eye.Mag (D.E.M) is called “Döuble.Eye.Records” (D.E.R) and they refer to the music as “Neo Melodic Rap (New Age Melodic Rap)”. “Neo Melodic Rap” was a title/genre created by Döuble.Eye.Records (D.E.R) to categorize today’s current state of rap since the rise of modern day stars such as Chief Keef, Young Thug, Future, & 2009-Present Lil Wayne.
Instead of disrespectful titles like “Mumble Rap”, Döuble.Eye.Records (D.E.R) created a title that accurately describes the current state of rap. In terms of the popular use of autotune, 808’s, & rappers who focus more on melodies/singing rather than lyricism/bars. According to Döuble.Eye.Records (D.E.R) the founder/creator of “Neo Melodic Rap (New Age Melodic Rap)” is Wu Tang’s very own Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB). Ason Unique has no father to his style, hence the name Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB). See the image above that displays the Mount Rushmore of “Neo Melodic Rap” & highlights the founding fathers of “Neo Melodic Rap”. The detailed “Neo Melodic Rap” family tree will be found on their website DoubleEyeMag.com/pages/double-eye-records (copy & paste link) . The family tree on their site features artists like Kid Cudi, T-Pain, Max B, Lil Uzi Vert, Gucci Mane, Fetty Wap, YNW Melly, Travis Scott, Soulja Boy, Drake, the late Nate Dogg & many more.

Thank you to those who kept reading to learn more about how you can be a part of their C.T.S exclusive NFT streaming soundtrack. The soundtrack is titled “Love…D The EP” by Me -Miself- i (IG @me.miself_i) & is available now along with exclusive merch from the “Celebrity Thrift Störe” collections. In addition to the three hard hitting melodic singles that were released on October 2nd, a snippet album was released on October 25th titled “Love…D The Snippet”.
You may be wondering what a snippet album is, so we’ll tell you. In order to give listeners & potential investors (in the C.T.S NFT streaming soundtrack) a sneak peek of the soundtrack, they created an album comprised of 10 to 15 seconds of the best parts from each song. The snippet album, singles, & “Love…D The EP” will be found on LÜM, Soundcloud, Spinrilla, Livemixtapes.com, & Youtube.
Additionally, their soundtrack titled “Love…D The EP” was Me -Miself- i debut project and below is our exclusive interview with him along with the EP cover below.
In a brief interview with Me -Miself- i regarding his place in the rap game, he quickly let us know that “I’ve been judged, scrutinized, & misunderstood all my life for being Miself. So this music is sweet in comparison to everything I’ve been through. If people Love my music or not it doesn’t matter to me because it wasn’t intended for them in the first place. I don’t create music for anyone & I don’t release music for anyone. I only make music for Me & my mom. Meaning if we both Love the song(s), mission accomplished. Why do you think that I’ve been holding on to all of my music since 2018 type stuff.”
He continued by adding that ”As a creative I use rap as one of my many mediums. I am not a rapper or a singer, I am a creative. I use melodies & bars as the mediums to express Miself creatively in rap & music in general. The only reason I am releasing my music is because it’s going to be used in a positive direction & hopefully help my people. Double Eye Mag reached out to me & wanted to use it as the soundtrack for their TV show called Celebrity Thrift Störe. Therefore, I am blessed & humbled to know that God allowed me to be in the position to have my music serve a positive purpose & impact people around the world. Lastly, the only reason I snuck in the industry is because I created my own lane through “Neo Melodic Rap” (New Age Melodic Rap). Sneaking in & creating my own lane was the only option I had because I refuse to do some corny stuff like copy someone else’s sound/wave to secure deals with labels. Thankfully it worked & I am here to stay,
