East London’s very own Kojey Radical has dropped a run of limited edition tee’s in collaboration with Kopparberg – and we love everything about it! The release marks the launch of Kopparberg’s brand new dark fruit rum and is in support of the Music Venue Trust. This really is a celebration of independence, in support of independence.

Who better to collaborate with Kopparberg to design a tee than Kojey Radical, a through and through creative, known for his progressive style in both music and fashion. With a black long sleeve as the foundation, we see Kojey add his unique flair and style to a classic silhouette. His bold design draws inspiration from Kopparberg’s new dark fruit rum. The t-shirt depicts a masked character encircled by wolves with the words ‘We Are Different in the Dark’. Kojey says:

‘This artwork is a symbol of feeling like a superhero when creating, with the intention of making others feel that same energy when they’re interacting with the creation, be it music, videos, or visual art.’

Make sure you don’t miss out on this incredibly cool piece as there are only 500, and once they are gone that is it! They are currently available to purchase on Everpress; a platform that champions independent artistic talent. All sales profits will go directly to the Music Venue Trust; a charity helping to financially support independent music venues, as well as providing information on alternative sources of aid. This is clearly personal and important to Kojey, as he expresses the importance of the role, that independent venues have played in his journey as an artist. He said:

‘I attribute a lot of my success to performing at small and independent venues in London and when Kopparberg, as an independent brand with a love of music, approached me to collaborate, it seemed like the perfect way to show my support’

This is the perfect way to support the live music industry which needs us now more than ever!

Blue Lab Beats: #DomeChallenge

Blue Lab Beats are back, and they have returned with another challenge! This time it’s the #DomeChallenge.

Earlier last week, London duo Blue Lab Beats dropped their Mahogany Session where they perform memories from their 2019 album Voyage. Mahogany are known for their incredible audio-visual quality, which means we get to hear and see these guys up close and personal in HD – and it is beautiful. This was followed by an interview where they discussed the importance of energy and vibes, and how they use them in the studio and during live performances – definitely worth checking out!

Today, on Instagram, they announced their latest challenge of the year, the #DomeChallenge. The challenge gives you the chance to add your own flavour to one of their beats. So, if you are an instrumentalist, vocalist, rapper, and/or singer head over to Soundcloud to download the beat and get your best 16 ready to take part!

This pair has one of the freshest sounds in the game right now. They are undoubtedly pushing the boundaries of contemporary jazz – and this hasn’t gone unnoticed. The duo feature on the collaborative Blue Note Re:imagined album out later this year (October 2nd) alongside an impressive line-up of artists. Blue Lab Beats are truly unique, we can’t wait to see what they have in store next and we love to see them getting the community hands-on and involved in their music.
