NEW VIDEO : SUMMER JAM 2014

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Here’s the new video promo from the first all day Summer Jam we threw back on the 12th of July with our friends from Bakery, City Surf and Spit & Sawdust skate park.

As a rule we tend to stay away from mixing political concerns with music too much. But we were recently invited by our new friends at Bakery to help them throw a fundraiser for a pretty unique kind of charity. www.skatepal.co.uk.

And it a hard one to say no to. Offering kids, living in what is undeniably a war zone, a positive outlet and welcome distraction from the hardships of daily life there. And escape is all what we all need is it not? Those moments of simple fun and pleasure that make life worth living. So we said HELL YES. And the result was a great day from start to finish. So big love to all who came down to have a good time.

We’ve had it on a promise that the actual skate edit from the day shot by the Bakery boys will be out pretty shortly too. So all the skate heads should keep an eye for that one. We’ll probably have it up on here so check back.

Ahead of the release of his new 7″ Booda French takes his turn to step up to the plate and air out Ed Boogie’s remake of the classic Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ beat. After making his name as one of the front runners on the battle scene under his former moniker ‘Truth’, he’s gone on to gain a strong following with his signature drawn out slurring, collaborating with the likes of Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea as well as just returning from a tour of UK & Europe.

Now set to release his new 7″ on 250 piece turquoise coloured vinyl. Produced by friend and long term collaborator, J57, of the much heralded Brooklyn crew, Brown Bag All Stars it’ll be distributed by the legendary Fat Beats worldwide.

“Send a message and a follow…”
