Right now Typograffix don Swifty and myself are rootically inspired. Jamaica50 is building nicely and we are working on a commission from British Underground to design a fanzine, that sheds light on UK Bass Culture and the diverse array of acts (Rasites, Gappy Ranks, Lady Leshurr, Natty et al) they are taking to SXSW in Austin, Texas this March.
So, for the past couple of months I’ve been diggin’ into the memory banks and my archives while Swifty has busy on e.bay and buying sheets of ply and getting creative. We’ve also been talking collaboration with a few fellow reggae devotees. There’s an exhibition in the making and we’re hyped.
Along with developing a UK map of sound system (so–o-o-o-o many sounds it’s impossible to include everybody!) and another “map” that traces the development of reggae music in the UK, we are thinking along the lines of an evolving installation with a working title of – Words Sound & Power: Reggae Music Changed My Life.
We’ll keep you posted but for now check this!
