Changing hands for the past few years at astronomical prices, some topping $500, Chain Reaction’s legendary soul 45, ‘Say Yeah / Search For Tomorrow’, is finally getting a long-anticipated repress. Some records exist in a transcendental state, enduring the fleeting trends that sweep across dance floors the world over. Timeless, never-ageing, these records are often highly-sought […]

Throughout his life, Pablo Picasso always insisted that an artist’s work should respond to the world around them. Obviously not alone in this sentiment, musicians spanning all genres have long used their art to voice socio-political messages; standing up for themselves, and their culture, in the face of adversity. It is interesting to see now, […]

From the gritty streets of North London to the colourful sounds of Fela Kuti’s Nigera – Bosq takes us on a tour through the music that has defined his sound and influenced his life as a musician.  Ahead of his forthcoming double LP release, Love and Resistance on Ubiquity Records, Bosq dives into the sounds that […]

Early, solitudinous walks in the park, whether a continuation of the night before or a head-clearing stroll before the daily grind kicks in, are an essential part of our private, inner lives. Introspective, coloured with nostalgia and prone to being a little over-sentimental at times (especially if twinned with the aforementioned night before), they’d be […]

After years spent working hard behind the scenes, Josey Rebelle has shot to the […]

Women are remarkable. Tell your story. Tell her story. We live in a world where gender is an increasingly important issue. If the talents of women are neglected or ignored, the consequences are serious for social and economic progress. The question is, how we can promote gender equality within multi-cultural societies? Does gender equality look […]

Bath. Afrobeat. Bathrobeat. This isn’t your ma’s epsom salt soak though, no, no, no. This is a very particular playlist for a very particular type of bath. Not a Sunday evening post-roast spa, not a fervent Monday morning scramble. Picture the scene: it’s Friday night, the feelings right. You’ve had a long, productive week and […]
