we hope you’re enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend.
On this carnival weekend, with a massive few days of music in the UK including Reading and Leeds Festival offering an even stronger Hip Hop line up this year, we feel blessed to have the opportunity for Donnie Numeric to be interviewed by the legendary Wordplay Magazine.
Not only that, Split Vision Photography got in on the action with an amazing photoshoot, making the lyrical wizard look all blue and stylish!
Anyway, save your reading eyes for this rather nice little interview, and a massive thank you to Wordplay for the opportunity. Here it is!….
Man we’re humbled by this!
Over the last few months we’ve been developing some amazing imagery and visuals with Bristol’s ridiculously dope Uchi Clothing (www.uchi.co.uk)
The first step is a subtle one, like the messages we attempt through our music. Can you see what we’re talking about?!
This is a humbling and amazing experience for us. We still can’t believe we’re collaborating with such talented designers and illustrators.
This is just our up close pic so you can spot our little part of this great design, but you can check the Supafresh Returns tee in it’s full beauty here –
Peace and blessings and you’ll be hearing from us very soon!
On Thursday evening Vice joined the amazing Carasel live in the studio on Ambush The Airwaves on Ujima Radio in Bristol. Carasel for many years has had the Bristol Hip Hop and DNB scene on lock, with his finger constantly on the the pulse of upcoming talent. It’s a great show and well worth a listen. Vice talks about his debut solo EP “Beats N Bobs”, the forthcoming DOR album and his forthcoming project with C-Froo. Ceef also treated us to a sneak 16 from the first single to drop from the first EP to drop on Crudely Cut. Here it is…
It’s been a busy few weeks in camp DOR. We’ve had an amazing response to “Look At What They Do” with loads of blogs, radio stations and DJs taking an interest in the track.
