For us at MONTANA-CANS, it is immeasurably important to have a close connection to our friends and partners who use our tools. This need for a close correlation has led us to support and sponsor an amazing amount of incredible events and projects, and helped us to establish collaborations with numerous artists, brands and partners. We are grateful to be in a position to be able to provide this kind of support, and thankful for the abundance of inspirations and ideas that artists and collaboration partners from all across the world share with us. We make it a point to feature these projects and collaborations on our blog and and social media channels, but because of the fast-paced hustle and bustle of the internet, we have decided it was time to create a printed collection which contains merely a small fraction of the creative work we have been involved in over the past years.

Montana x Marsimoto When a German Rapper receives a platinum record for an album, we tend to notice. It is not only the music of this specific HipHop star that is so impressive, but also his interesting career path. First he starting off playing soccer as a member of the U-17 squad of the German national soccer team, then he was discovered by a model scout in New York. After he got bored with modeling for brands such as Diesel and Hugo Boss, he moved back to Germany in 2003 and studied acting, and then – to our pleasure – decided to dive into his music career. We are talking – of course – about Materia or more precisely his alter-ego MARSIMOTO, who has created a design for his very own signature color: Green! To be specific, our very own, brand new hue: MONTANA MARSIGREEN. If MARSIMOTO had his way, the entire world would be green. MONTANA MARSIGREEN stands for hope, calm, safety, inspiration, freshness, nature and life. Marsigreen rooms can have a calming, balancing and even noise-dampening effect. It gives your eyes a sense of restfulness, since the sight of green is never strenuous. The simple design of the green can depicts the MARSIMOTO logo on the front and center of the litho, making the design simple yet effective. As a result of fooling around with some effects in a recording program, Materia created his alter-ego MARSIMOTO, paying homage to Madlib’s alter-ego Quasimoto. Both alter-egos are known for their high-pitched voices. He released his debut album as MARSIMOTO in 2006 and started soaring in the German charts from there. MARSIMOTO just released his newest album in 2015 titled „Ring der Nebelungen“, literally „Ring of Fog“, which is actually a play on words referring to „The Ring of the Nibelung“ a cycle of operatic dramas by composer Richard Wagner. We definitely prefer MARSIMOTO’s version rather than the worn out, ancient tale. 103
