I was pretty hyped to see this poster today in Piccadilly Records – I love learning about gigs through posters rather than news feeds. Backed by the illustrious Hoya pairing of Jon K and Jonny Dub, J Rocc hits Joshua Brooks on Saturday 11th October 2014.
Manchester heads aplenty at the Sketch City all dayer today in Manchester… the Bench Self Made gallery on Oldham Street is hosting the Sketch City exhibition from now until April 21st. Shouts to the DJs today including Neko Neko, Woli Wols, Danny Drive Thru, In The Loop (us) – Ape Cult and Metrodome jumping up too. Here’re some pics.
“Manchester’s award winning Sketch City triumphantly returns for a special Easter weekend event and exhibition that combine to celebrate the infamous collective that created an artistic hub for some of the city’s most talented artists. During the launch and open day the Bench Self Made Gallery will see a live mural created by some of Manchester’s finest artists on the gallery walls plus feature workshops that will give anyone and everyone the opportunity to contribute to the exhibition and learn some street art & illustration techniques. Throughout the day there will be a soundtrack supplied by some Of Manchester’s best live music acts & DJ’sThe exhibition will display the work created throughout, plus host a wall of fame, a mini gallery of photo booth images, the time lapse film of the mural being created, in addition to a showcase of professional work from Sketch City artists including Hammo, TW, Benjamino, Krek, Eightbit, Tea One, Lispencie and many more to be announced.
To celebrate Illum Sphere‘s just-announced signing to Ninja Tune he’s released Fat Ballet as a free download. Read the press release and download the track at the Ninja Sphere mini-site here.
When Groovement started four and a bit years ago Ryan was one of our first guests, and I hardly knew him then. He’s remained a firm friend ever since and a fierce supporter of everything I’ve done with Groovement, together with Jonny Dub who he runs Hoya Hoya with. I’ve seen the Illum persona take shape over the years and I’m extremely proud of him for getting to this point. Well done, mate.
