Watch the first episode of my brand new series, Darling and King Presents...
If you listen to my weekly radio show on Buzz FM (Saturday's 2-4pm #ShamelessPlug) you will know my co-host and I have a interesting dynamic and we are also really keen on creating a platform for up and coming talent. This series has been created to introduce (or in some cases, re-introduce) creative talent to as many people as possible.
In our first episode we sit down with rapper and producer, Adian Coker. We discuss his journey in music, his biggest influences and who he respects in the industry right now. I had a great time shooting this and can't wait to share more episodes with you all. I have a few other projects coming up and I plan to regularly update this blog with my encounters, inspirations and future endeavours!
Watch the video below and leave your thoughts in the comments section.

What if everyone who lived there looked different? The idea clicked and led to an examination of black and poor stereotypes through clothing.

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.
