I am throwing a 30th birthday party for myself at The Book Club on Friday 15th November 2013.
We'll be in the basement from 8pm-2am.
I've partnered with a night down there called The Get Down and I have some of my good friends playing too.
Chris Read (BBE Records)DJ Matman (DMC Champ)DJ Khalil (Livin' Proof)
Expect Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, Boogie and more.
Everyone is welcome, and where possible, please RSVP so that I can get an idea of numbers. I'll be reserving a big area for us all. Please also extend this invite to anyone I may have missed. Really hope you can make it!
Much love, Nick x
This Saturday! Come one, come all!
We are is pleased to present our second collaboration with Footpatrol and renowned UK street style photographer Normski, a collection of t-shirts bearing Normski’s original photographic works: insightful black and white portraits offering a window into the world of hip hop artists and street style in the late ‘80s early ‘90s. This year’s collection features 5 icons of the era photographed in their heyday: De La Soul, Ice Cube, Guru, Dr. Dre and Eric B.
Thanks to everyone that attended the launch party at the pop-up store in Soho, London on August 15th. It was a blast!

Normski exploded onto the public stage in the early 90s as presenter of the groundbreaking BBC2 programmes ‘Def 2’ and ‘Dance Energy’, broadcasting the previously under-represented elements of the UK’s black music & dance music scenes to a new audience.
Throughout this period and for many years prior, Normski had been documenting UK club culture and the rise of hip hop culture in the UK through photography. As a key figure in the UK’s early hip hop community, Normski enjoyed unrivaled access to the rising stars of the home grown scene and high profile touring acts from the US, both subjects which feature heavily in his work from the period.
Over the last three years Classic Material, a project founded by UK DJ/recording artist Chris Read and DJ/promotor Nick Armitage, has been celebrating 30+ years of recorded rap music through a series of events, exhibitions and limited edition products paying tribute to the genre’s defining moments.
Looking forward to playing lots of funk and soul music on 23rd November 2012 alongside Chris Read (BBE Records).
Shoreditch locals, be sure to come along. I'll be celebrating my birthday too so the more familiar faces I see the better!
Bedlam presented by Lazarides in association with HTC is the final part in a trilogy of immersive art experiences at The Old Vic Tunnels. Contributing artists include favourites Antony Micallef, Conor Harrington, Dan Witz, Kelsey Brookes, Lucy McLauchlan, Ian Francis, Doug Foster and 3D.
Bedlam has been the talk of the town for the past couple of weeks, with the show arguably being the most successful to date, along with the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and Azelia Banks turning up to party at last Monday's opening event too.
Bedlam closes it's doors at the time of writing this. For those that missed it, here's a few snaps I took of some of my preferred pieces from the show.
