"Hitters" - Scott Carthy

Saturday, 16 May 2015



Directed by the award winning, Scott Carthy, "Hitters" is a documentary that brilliantly showcases New York's B-Boy culture. It features interviews with the next generation of dancers and the founders of the art form as they discuss the history and the current state of this street dance phenomenon. 

The 22 year old director graduated from Kingston University last year and is really making a name for himself as he has already released a film prior to "Hitter", entitled; "Litefeet" and it was picked as a Vimeo Pick of the Day.

 Armed with his drone, Amos Chapple has taken photo's of some of the world's most breathtaking architectural wonders. Recording sights from Barcelona to Mumbai, many of these images from his series were taken before drone photography restrictions were introduced thus possibly making them the last aerial images of this type.

Spotlight: 0002

Monday, 4 May 2015



As promised, here is the second instalment of "Spotlight" - a round up of a few artists and new music that i'm currently listening to. If you enjoy the music I've posted please support the artists with the links I have provided below. You can also tune into my weekly radio show and follow me on soundcloud to hear more!
First up is the East London based talent that is Nao (pronounced Nayo), I started paying attention to her after the release of her EP, "So Good" last year. Since then she's been getting support from the likes of Chet Faker and Jacques Greene; she even toured with Little Dragon on the European leg of their tour.   
After working with the ridiculously talented, A.K. Paul and more recently, Mura Masa on "Firefly". Nao has just dropped an EP entitled, February 15th and her new single, "Inhale Exhale" is a clear indication that this girl is someone we should all have her on our radar.


A while ago I mentioned on Twitter that Australia and New Zealand were producing a lot of soul and R&B vocalists; Nai Palm, Hollie Smith, Kimbra and Mara TK to name a few. Enter, singer-songwriter and producer, Janine and the Mixtape. The New Zealand native fuses R&B, Electronica and a bit of pop. I'm interested in hearing a bit more of her stuff as she's gearing up for the release of her second EP, which should be dropping soon.


 This man needs no introduction, Ahmir Mohamed el Khalifah aka Oddisee has probably worked with all your favourites, Jazzy Jeff, Eric Lau, The Foreign Exchange, Joey Badass and more! The Rapper/Producer just released his new project, "The Good Fight" and you can stream/buy it right now on his Bandcamp page.

Tuesday, 21 April 2015


I recently saw the work of Ghanaian artist, Enam Bosokah on Tumblr, he creates stunning portrait drawings with elaborate detail only using a blue ballpoint pen! It's amazing how much detail and texture Bosokah is able to covey just using a simple pen. Have a look at more of his work. below.
