Somerset House Graphic Art Fair opens

If your into design be sure to head down to Somerset House this week to check out their second edition of Pick Me Up, the UK’s first contemporary graphic art fair. After last years popularity they are back again and open until Thursday for a celebration of graphic art at its finest.

Although mainly an exhibition that features innovative and avant-garde graphic artists, collectives and the UK has to offer, there are also some interesting international artists included in the exhibition who have a special relationship with the UK that is present in their work, and if you are in the buying mood there are some amazing and affordable prints on sale for you to dispense your income on, but only if you want to.

Lots of Love

UK Rap and Rhyme is Evolving

As a hip hop lover who has spent years and years as both a willing and unwilling participate in debates about Hip Hop I recently stumbled upon some really interesting artists I felt were bringing a new ray of hope for the music scene, and evolving the quality and sound of rap in the UK.

Check the new Gob single by Dels, with some beautiful vocals delivered from Elan Tamara right at the very end of the track. The video and song I must admit has blown me away in an instant

This is Dels - Gob

Let's not forget my brother from another mother, Ghost Poet, who's been receiving critical acclaim and being working on tracks with really distinguished artists such as Kano and Mike Skinner, he's done soo much recently I can't even keep up with him at the moment.

This is Ghostpoet - Cash and carry me home

And Durrty Goodz bars, ohhhhhhhhhhhh my days!!!!!! I think his flow really speaks for itself.

Durrty Goodz - Oi wot u lookin at

Lots of Love
