As usual we’ve raised the stakes and aimed to put out something that you won’t find anywhere else. A UK themed issue from the red and blue colour scheme to the fashion imagery through to the innovative musicians and artists we’ve spoken to, issue 04 celebrates our very own local originators.
Peep the roll call of exclusives. On the music tip we’ve got exclusive features with the bedrock of UK hip hop. From the grey High Plains of Huddersfield, Jehst and the YNR crew, cover star Klashnekoff reloading for his next saga, the cerebral thoughts of Ty, electronic pioneers Coldcut / Ninja Tune and Daddy Skitz. Also in the mix is the un-definable James Lidell, floating vocals from Fatima, the relentless underground warrior Cappo and Radio 1xtra DJs Benji B, Mista Jam and DJ Target.
On the visual side of things we chat to street artist agent provocateur D*Face, visual storyteller Slinkachu, dope designers Oscar & Ewan, and include illustrations by some of the UK’s finest pencil wielding talent.
Oh yeah, and from across the pond, the one and only Mutha Fecking Gaslamp Killer drops in for a cup of tea.
