In 2010 we hung some Matalan bedsheets from the ceiling in a shitty room in east London and projected videos onto them for a boiler room X TSP takeover and some mates played some music (Alex Nut, Funkineven, Shamos). About 30 people were there and it was shut down by the police. It was the last Boiler Room in the original space and was the birth of the visuals seen at the Boiler Room up until now as well as the original ‘Public service’ tee. It was also the start of a great relationship between ISYS and The Boiler Room. This Redstripe Make Session event in 2013 was a re-happening of what a bunch of mates did on an independent level 3 years ago. Homecoming bizness.
Thanks to everyone who came and all the acts that played. It was fun xxx
We spent some time in Birmingham with our favourite producer at the moment – Preditah and his brother C4. see the article and more pictures here http://www.dazeddigital.com/music/article/16034/1/preditahs
We are really happy to be working with Prestel on our first book. ’What We Wore’ is a people’s style history of Britain from 1950 to the present day. The project is about you and your personal stories: why you wore what you did, and what it meant to you.
