Fanzine of the week #1
I like dancehall and I like fanzines, so this was always going to go down well in my little corner of the world.
Hand printed, 28 pages, put together by a gang of young ‘uns who lurk about North East London – this is well worth your attention. There’s a palpable feeling of fun here, people writing about the music that they love.
The debut includes nice interviews with Natalie Storm, Wrongtom, Serocee and Mr Lexx. Plus some ziney features on kung fu tunes, apocalyptic imagery in reggae, Heatwave’s noughties riddim chart, a Soca commuting soundtrack and more. I wasn’t especially bothered about Kalbata running down the various bits of kit in his studio, but I guess that might be a must-see for producers out there.
A range of t-shirts is promised, and the associated blog and club night are already here.
