Noisey Birmingham

Noisey Birmingham

On Tuesday night we attended the premiere of Noisey's latest music documentary, as part of the Everyman Music Film Festival. Directed by Tayo Yusuff and hosted by Mike Skinner, the film follows Mike around Birmingham, interviewing the likes of Lady Leshurr, Mist and Jaykae, finding out what makes the scene here so special, and getting their thoughts on why it's only now that artists from the 0121 are starting to gain serious traction nationwide. The documentary (above!) also includes interviews with local stars Lotto Boyzz, SafOne & Dapz on The Map, as well as taking the time to get some input from other voices...

Asian Youth Culture Exhibition

Asian Youth Culture Exhibition

After hearing that Inès Elsa Dalal (photographer behind our First Rate lookbook) was involved in a project documenting the experiences of Asian Youth in Britain, we made the short trek across Digbeth to the exhibition opening earlier this month.   Focusing on three distinct periods between the 1950s and today, the exhibition looks at the lives of young Asians in Britain, including their heritage and influence on British culture. As well as Inès' portraits (including one of Sheerah Ravindren, who you might recognise from our First Rate collection), there are a number of records on show from Oriental Star Agencies, a record label based in Birmingham whose founders were known for importing Indian...
