Nike x Size? Dave White: 10 Years of Obsession

For the past year Rosie Lee have helped Nike & size? with their 10 year collaboration celebrations; a year which so far has seen the release of 9 limited edition shoes. To coincide with the release of the tenth shoe and put the finishing touches on a fantastic year we were asked to organising a party. The evening was held at Dover St’s Air Gallery and featured all ten limited edition shoes and a one off piece of Dave White Artwork, which was broken into pieces and given away. Drinks, DJ’s and Sneaker heads all culminated in a top night to celebrate Nike & size? and their ongoing obsession with all things sneaker.

FACT mix 196: LV


LV were the first act to release on Hyperdub outside the trio of Kode9, Burial and The Bug, making their label debut with 2007’s ‘Globetrotting’, a collaboration with veteran reggae singer Errol Bellot. The years since have seen a steady stream of LV releases on Hyperdub, Hemlock, 2nd Drop and Keysound, with the London-based group content to stay casually in the shadows; the majority not knowing the members’ identity or background.

Listen to the mix here and read the FACT article:

2nd Drop 010 - Duncan Powell - Pushing

2nd Drop Records is proud to present its tenth release!

Duncan Powell
A. Pushing
B. Pushing - Falty DL Remix

Vinyl> out mid June 2010
Digital> out late June 2010

An underground legend with releases on MJ Cole's personal label, Profile, Reading lad Duncan Powell offers a classic slice of, as Jackmaster (Wireblock/ Numbers) described it, "James Bond Step". A big string laden anthem, Pushing was originally given away as part of a free EP on Duncan's blog. But much like Ramadanman's Good Feelin record which was also saved from the same fate, we believed that it was too good to be a freebie and pressed it up onto vinyl.

A goldmine of musical elements, Pushing was ripe for the remix treatment and as Falty DL was a big fan of the original, and as we were a big fan of him, set him to work stripping back the cacophony of melody transforming Pushing into a dark, broken 2-step swinger with flashes of vocals and strings, to awesome effect.

Played and supported by the likes of Modeselektor, Peveralist, Diplo, Simbad, Desto, Sinden, Mary Anne Hobbs among others.

The guest illustrator on this release is Audrey Rogers, a fine artist/ illustrator with a visual style which quickly resonated with the 2nd Drop guys and fitted nicely with the 12" format. Her excellent work can be found here
