i just posted about Members of Mayday (aka Westbam) Sonic Empire, a CLASSIC track from the 90's rave scene (see the video here in my previous post).

here's my custom stitch that i just finished up for the 626 Experiment with mindSTYLE / disney. mine should be making its debut as part of the upcoming San Diego Comic Con.
