2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;
Persona 1: WHAT YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED AS
Persona 2: WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE CONSIDERED AS
This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!
A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND
A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.
2FACED1 is a state of mind, 2FACED1.com is a display-window for this mindset and the network of 2FACED1 includes all of you progressive non-stereotypes with a double perspective on identity.

SAMPOLOGY feat. SPOEK MATHAMBO & GNUCCI BANANA - PIGGY BANK
Post date Fri 4 Mar 2011 6:55 PM
WHOA! Big day, celebrate that!
I did my TV-debut a couple of hours ago, took a much needed power nap until now and see that we cracked the PIGGY BANK open. Me and Spoek feature on a Sampology production and honestly, we be killin it!
Sampology did a sick beat, the remixes are really good and I think we all killed it on this one. The song is all about ballin on a budget. That everyday flare. That common luxury. That refill, that extra sauce that halloumi IN your falafel. You know?! I've mastered the minimum wage so I know a lil something about living on a budget. BUT I know 2011 is the year of Gekko, Spoek is getting greedy as fuck. He needs a new tooth and we need those coins. My favorite part of the song is when he sums it up to "Halloumi in my falafel, new shoes for my mom and em', JAG TJÄNAR PENGAR" and the shout out of the month; TJENA SKÅNE. Who knew we would have a Ndebele prince, God of Sound shouting out Skåne?! (Skåne is a swedish county) If that doesn't give him the swedish visa I don't know what will.
Well Spoek is on a worldwde mission to make those monies but I know he can't even afford cough mixture so if you happen to catch him at any of these dates, bring sizzurp. He's gonna be touring with Steve Borth aka CHLLNGR and I know they are gonna be amazing, Steve is the nicest guy I've met and will be the nicest guy you ever meet as well. Do yourself a favor and catch them here and there:
