6-9pm, Friday 1st August
PROVIDE, The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Birmingham B9 4AT
Kouben is a Birmingham-born producer and close friend of PROVIDE. Over the past few months he's been working on a mixtape of new tunes for us, and this Friday August 1st we're hosting a little launch party in the shop to celebrate the release of On Another Planet.
Cassettes (painstakingly recorded by Kouben one at a time) will be available in the shop from Friday, priced at £5 and will also be available on his Bandcamp page. Each cassette will come with a one-time download code so you can listen to the tape wherever you are. Kouben has put the whole thing on Side A, leaving Side B blank in the hopes that you'll want to relive the golden age of mixtape making and record your own mix.
The visual artwork for the project was drawn by James Headlam, and will also feature on T-shirts, available exclusively at PROVIDE.
Both the T-shirts and the cassettes will be limited editions of 50, available on a first-come, first served basis.
