Shaun Bloodworth LA Producer Shots (2009)


While we’re in LA I thought it’d be worth putting up these portraits of some of the city’s top producers and DJs that first appeared in our inbox in 2009. Los Angeles was getting it’s proper hype at last, Daddy Kev’s Low End Theory was in full flight and Gaslamp Killer was known as an out there DJ, though yet to…

Pocket Designs Closing Down


Sad news here. Purveyors of the much-touted ‘Sir White’, ‘Bomukun’ and ‘AstroSugar’ constructions of late – Pocket Designs – are closing their doors after a decade of business. Pocket Designs has held it down as the local go-to place for t-shirts for some time now based on quality, and added to it by keeping their costs reasonable where other boutiques didn’t. Not…

Born in Ghana on the tail end of the 1920’s, Barnor opened his first studio in Accra in 1950. As a photojournalist…

Keith P Tops Of 2015


More lists and a chance to shout out all the goodness that buzzed us. Nice to reconnect with London crew this year, if only for one night. The biggest change is buying habits again. If the previous two years represented cassettes as a novelty, 2015’s when it became essential to own a walkman to do the show we wanted. It…
