On LA Culture

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

"I've been in LA for three years and whilst it's still the strangest city on the planet, it's an amazing and unique place. The cost of living is considerably less so people can come and be creative. There are so many different pockets of underground culture developing. Then throw the whole Hollywood thing and the skate and surf movement into the mix you get a bizarre melting pot of people which provides a great pool of inspiration." —Twelve Bar designer Nick Jackson [Dazed Digital]
