A tour van is a weird and funny place. Imagine, a bunch of sweaty skaters trapped together in a tiny automobile being shuttled from skatespot to skatespot – it becomes like its own little ecosystem in there, every person having a role to play: there’s the driver, of course, then there’s the navigator, there’s the designated spliff roller, the “Show Me Your Tits” sign holder, the guy in the back trying to sleep… But the most important role of the whole deal is the DJ, the man that sets the mood for the journey. In the Real Skateboards tour van, that responsibility is bestowed upon Jake Donnelly.
To celebrate the release of REAL’s new video, Through and Through, we hit up Jake to give us a playlist of tour van songs that might have been playing as the REAL team went from spot to spot, city to city.
