Origin London Exhibition

July 30th – August 19th

The Orange Dot Gallery
54 Tavistock Place

Opening Times
Tuesday – Friday / 11 – 5, Saturday – Appointment Only

PREVIEW: 30th July 2011, 12-6pm

Founded by 17-year old Gabriel Noble, Origin London is an independent clothing company that will release four limited edition t-shirts in collaboration with UK art collectives TIMC (This Is My Costume) and Puck during summer 2011.

The tees, along with each collective’s work, will be exhibited at the Orange Dot Gallery situated in London’s Bloomsbury.

Puck Collective ( is a highly regarded group of illustrators on London’s graphic art scene. Following the success of their group show at London’s C.A.M.P, the collective exhibited at Somerset House’s Pick Me Up, which quickly cemented their position as one of the most exciting group of young illustrators in the UK.

Represented by Babycrow and Robbie’s Brown Shoes, the pair will exhibit a selection of rare illustrations and prints alongside their Origin London t-shirts.

TIMC ( are a self-proclaimed “organised crime cartel” with a passion for drawing. They say, “We don’t really agree with un-fun artwork or think about things too much. We draw what we want and nothing too emotional.” The three gents and one lady that make up TIMC, who normally use London’s backdrop as their canvas, will mark their gallery debut with a selection of new works.

Origin will screen-print two designs from each collective. Limited to a run of 30 T-shirts for each design, the hand numbered and signed tee’s will be boxed in exclusive packaging and accompanied by a mixtape compiled by each artist.

It's Showtime...

The Heatwave have put together something epic at Cargo tomorrow with this Showtime event, a blend of UK legends sharing the stage over classic & up to date bashment played by The Heatwave themselves.

Definitely doing alot for UK dancehall, I'm expecting some legendary shit to go down, i hope you've got your tickets people!

Anymore info needed...check the video below from Friday's press day with Glamma Kid, Stush, Lady Chan & more.

Jon Phonics - Dripping Wet Mix

I had the pleasure of meeting talented producer Jon Phonics last week, I've been blasting his beats for some time now as well [having battered the Jonathans Beats and Pieces release]. Anyways I found this soulful mix on his Soundcloud and can say it's 100% Sunday afternoon music, so if you're still a bit slumped from the night before press play and cool out.

Dont Call Me Urban....

The opening of the exhibition of Simon Wheatley’s book, that analyses the culture of London’s underground music and the contextual social conditions over the last decade, will be accompanied by a series of musical performances by artists who have made their mark on the genre of grime as it has evolved during this time into the UK’s most distinctive 'urban' art form.

'DON’T CALL ME URBAN! The Time of Grime' is a photographic reco
rd compiled over a twelve-year period, focussing on the youth of London’s inner-city at a vital time, taking as its prism the genre of grime - the most significant and controversial musical expression to emerge from the UK since punk. 

If you're in east tomorrow, make your way down!
