Producer Stephen “EIBOL” Galgano and MC Brent “Cidida” Aherns are the lone inhabitants of Young Planet, a dynamic hip hop duo based in Brooklyn. Both are longtime members of our extended Ace family, moonlighting in their off-the-mic time as bellmen at Ace Hotel New York.

The pair are set to release their debut LP, New Fast Automatic, in January. In the mean time, we’re proud to share the record’s debut video, Alex F Ghassan’s merit badge-earning Resurrect on Jupiter.

Ace’s own actor and playwright Jesse Jensen created some serious magic in New York a few weeks ago with his one-night-only performance “The Untold Story of John Wilkes Booth.”  

The one-man play, written by Jensen and directed by Adam Knight of Slant Theater Project, takes a unique and piercing look into the soul of America’s most notorious assassin. Jensen as John Wilkes Booth is charming, intense, intimate and even funny, as he exposes the complex life and times of the once famous actor and what drove him to shoot the President.

People came, they laughed, they cried, and apparently they are asking for more.

Go Jesse. We will be keeping our eyes open for the future of your play.
