This summer The Diggers will be hosting a trio of record fairs on the Oval Space terrace in conjunction with Behind This Wall.
A true diggers paradise with stalls from top dealers, labels and shops all trading from 12pm-6pm
The Diggers Social will run throughout the day until 9pm with DJs playing cross genre selections. The terrace will be equipped with a tuned d&b system and top rotary mixer providing excellent sound quality.
For the last of the trio the bar will stay open until 12pm with a special guest DJ to be announced nearer the time.
There will be classic cocktails with seasonal, botanical or herbaceous enhancements alongside a distinctly wild, foraged and British BBQ menu from supper club Parish.
I’m not sure if making these cases was ever a good idea.
I’d just finished studying Graphic Design and wanted to work on a fun personal project. I ended up making over 100 handmade cases using hazard tape, grey board, self adhesive magnetic strips and CD nipples.
A completely DIY effort involving hand cutting over 200 square boards, 400 strips of hazard tape and 400 magnetic strips; which then had to be cut in half to make them the right size to keep the traditional CD case dimensions.
This was over 8 years ago (I think) and looking at them now I’m still happy with how they turned out.
The mix didn’t go quite so well. Not that it wasn’t good it’s just that the cases were better.
The cases ended up sitting on a shelf for around 7 years until I finally came to the conclusion that no matter how good the mix, the case was still ridiculous, and that the only way to counter this was to do two mixes covering as much ground as cohesively possible; pretty much how I love to play.
It still took a year to actually dedicate the time to making a cup of coffee and getting down to business.
But it’s done: Over two hours of Electro Funk, SloMo Techno, Boogie Edits, Basement Jams and Warehouse Vibes.
They’ll be free with orders but if you’d just like a copy send me an email with your postal address and I’ll get one out to you. firstname.lastname@example.org

I do love Aryz’s work. It’s a shame he’s so down on the term Street Art though. I know it’s been monetised to shit but it’s dealt heavily with reclaiming public space that’s been commercialised for decades; almost to the point where the underlying message, regardless of the content, is “this is my world and you can’t sell it back to me”.
