Summertime Mixtape Vol. 8 – Jeremy Holmes, Hype ‘Believe’ Promo

June 30, 2020


The history books need more room for Dallas’ Jeremy Holmes, heavy ’00s hitter whose body of work in Youtube form exhibits some DVD-to-digital picture distortion that doesn’t yet command the sort of nostalgia reserved for the stressed VHS effect. He remains though one of the decade’s great ledge operators, working ‘Time Code’ spots, good with loose-fit switch 360 flips or a fakie hop up a curb to start a line, authoritative when he’s slamming down his wheels on the ledge lines under the roofs in this part for the Popwar reheat, Hype Skateboards. There’s some good filming like on the line-ending switch manual and a couple clips that oughtta be canon, like the hands-behind-the-back landing on the backside 180 nosegrind or the nollie backside 180 switch backside 5-0 shove-it, in a line, with extra undershirt points. The only thing this part really misses is one of his nollie backside noseblunt slides, like the one that shut down the Macba slot for a few years.
