All the best,

We took a trip to Meshuggah’s studio in Stockholm to spend some quality time with Tomas Haake. It was eye opening. And almost back breaking…


M.I.A’s Kiran Gandhi talks about the music industry, unexplored opportunity and how to make the most of it. Given she’s a Harvard MBA grad, we paid close attention.


We dropped in on Steve Smith at home for a frank and open discussion about some of the bleaker times in his career and how they ultimately helped him move forward.
