The Missing Books23/05/2012
It was in 1943 that Jan Tschichold first suggested the idea of an award to be conferred upon the most beautiful Swiss books that were being published annually. Mysteriously however, only a few years later, there is a gap in the series; in 1946, 1947 and 1948 no books were entered or awarded. This gap and its context served as an interesting starting point for an exhibition series which discussed book making and book design in Switzerland, particularly from that time, but also in contemporary practice.

Verbal is as unique as it gets, whether its music or fashion everyone in Japan knows the name Verbal. If you were one of the very few to get your hands on the highly limited debut from M-Flo you would have realised it was a sign of things to come. Further down the line he worked together with NIGO and the Teriyaki Boys which perhaps gave him the necessary insight into music on a global scale. This balanced together with M-Flo, he has since become a well known figure in clubs all over Japan, DJing along with his wife Yoon, and saying this couple stands out is an understatement.
Heavy Vibrations - A Musical Portrait of South African Youth02/05/2012
Let’s start this off with a bit of a confession: I am a white English writer with South African permanent residency who’s spent the last 15 years living in England, America and here in South Africa. My passion is street culture and everything that comes free with it, and right here right now South Africa is a gold mine for original, fresh-to-death, commercial-free culture, but that may well change in the not-too-distant future.

Tenement Cafe, the brainchild of musician Ino Hidefumi and his wife Hiroki is almost a home away from home. The location of Tenement Cafe, a more traditional part of Ebisu, Tokyo reflects the concept of the cafe while combining this with a more modern edge. The organic, vintage interior design combined with Ino's music playing in the background defines the comfortable atmosphere on both floors of the cafe. In addition to a marvelous menu which is a unique combination of Western and Japanese food, you can easily enjoy peaceful lunch or drinks with friends in the evening.
On Tour With Blouse25/04/2012
In early December I received an unexpected email from my friend Paul Roper, who lives in Portland, Oregon. It said that he would be touring with a band called Blouse through Italy in February, and that he hoped we could meet up. The last time I had seen Paul had been over a year ago when we had very briefly played ping-pong on a snowy night in Dalston, so the prospect excited me. I penciled in a trip to Bologna’s Covo Club, then promptly forgot all about it.

This is Noise 001: A Silent Flute Mixtape04/04/2012
Music has and will forever continue to help shape and progress the culture of any one sub culture. From Miles Davis, to Malcolm McLaren music has been vital in telling the stories of the time, allowing those without a voice to be heard loud and clear. With the every growing diversity of today we've decided to hand the reigns over to a few select music personalities in an ongoing series This Is Noise. The selections will be as eclectic as the DJs themselves.
