Currently working on new club night sensation Staunch and the imminent drop of record label School as well as being able to name scene pioneers such as Loefah and Zed Bias amongst his fans, Klose One stands as arguably one of the most exciting djs in the UK right now.
That enigmatic and mysterious East London producer Ofei has made another amazing mix. The exclusive monday morning playlist for Soulculture has vanquished our monday morning blues, so we had to share it with our Who's Jack readers too.
Ofei is a jack of all trades. He sings, produces and song writes; and, he does all this while in shadows - allowing us to focus purely on his music and not wonder (too much) is he as hot as he sounds? What kinda garms does he wear? Is he the UK's answer to The Weeknd?
Enough speculation! listen to the mix for yourself HERE, and check out Ofei's latest release 'London' above. An undeniable tune that we adore. We're so excited to see more from this guy. Uplifting and refreshing new talent.
Addison Groove (Headhunter), the Bristol based dupstep DJ has done an exclusive mix for Fly 53 who has been very busy of late (you can listen to the remix below).
Not only have they been putting some finishing touches to their new zine coming soon they have also launched a new line of graphic print Ts which we're loving.
The collection is called deconstructed Americana and Ts within it take worn and faded icons of Americana glamour and mix them all up to be spat back out ( in the most attractive way possible) onto their great fitting, soft cotton Ts.
Our favourite is ‘Bad Penny’ is a slick black and white design but with nods to chaos theory and a beautiful lady with a Joker style makeover. Traditional approaches to beauty are looked at again with the FLY53Boy t-shirt; we doubt she’s what Heff had in mind, but with the deconstructed look at his infamous magazine, we’re sure he’ll have time for this.
