After five successful years as part of Nine High – which produced two mixtapes, an album and an Australian tour, Byron began his solo career with the release of his debut mixtape, ‘Jack of None’, which received heavy support from acclaimed BBC 1xtra tastemakers DJ Target & Ras Kwame (who made the ‘New Day’ feat Emeli Sande his World Exclusive Record of the Week in late 2010), followed by the five track deep ‘Hardworker EP’, which received praise from many leading blogs and airplay on Choice FM.
Then followed 140bpm-led project ‘Deep Lyrics/Dirty Beats’ – released in 3 parts through the UK’s leading youth broadcaster SBTV. The projects lead single ‘Thank You’ – produced by long-term collaborator Chris Loco (Rita Ora, Leona Lewis) – was again supported by a host of DJ’s on 1xtra and Choice FM. The project culminated in the 3rd instalment including street single ‘Secrets’ feat UK legends Dot Rotten & Ghetts, which was picked up by none other than BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, as well as Kiss 100’s Grime aficionado DJ Logan Sama amongst others. Byron also supported The Milk on tour throughout the south of the UK, the final gig being a sell-out at Hammersmith Apollo. A spate of high quality visuals followed in association with award-winning company Kissinggate Productions, and the creation of the animated video for ‘Secrets’ with Quenched Music (Channel 4, Skins).
2013 has begun in earnest for Byron, with the release of ‘Sunshine Music’ – a feature-free body of work created closely with Chris Loco, released through the aforementioned SBTV.co.uk – that promises to be the perfect accompaniment to the sunshine… or the perfect remedy for the winter gloom!
“One day Chris and I were going through our old cassette tapes from the pirate radio days and wanted to re-live some memories,” Byron explains, “we found an old Tascam studio tape deck on eBay and he tried running some stuff through it.. It had a warmth and depth that I really liked so we decided to run with it for the entire project. Things have changed since ‘back in the day’ – technology has advanced, there’s perhaps more focus on image and less focus on the lyrics – we wanted Sunshine Music to stir the juices of nostalgia, but for all the right reasons!”
Featuring 13 beautifully crafted and instinctively soulful cuts, ‘Sunshine Music’ certainly fulfils Byron’s aim and shows the multi-talented wordsmith at his best – effortlessly communicating genuine lyricism over a backdrop of sweltering, summer time soundscapes.
‘Feast of Fools’ was the name of a celebration, where youngsters would dress up as high authorities, politicians and powerful church figures and make a mockery of the system/religion they were enslaved in.
We start with a blank canvas and never really know where our samples or instruments are going to take us, every project is a celebration and a mockery of sorts of what people expect of us. We try to push our creative limits without holding back. And we like beer. We can’t see the Feast of Fools going down without some good beer.
Self Taught heads downtown with their new single, a video camera and several backpacks of beer. They drink their faces off while people lose their minds and throw their hands up. The group sends a special thanks to everyone involved in the making of the video… as they barely remember any of them.

Drop City Yacht Club (formerly known as The Freshmen), the California trio of Kristo, A Wolf, and THX will just as quickly rap about the girl who turned them down as the one that they took home If you took the Beach Boys and the Beastie Boys and smashed em’ together, you might come close to the sound and feel of DCYC. Brought together in 2009 by a mixture of randomness and what in hindsight seams like fate, the trio quickly realized their common interest in 60′s pop rock, hip hop and progressive music in general.

Our keynote ‘structure’ this month successfully blurs the line between outsider art and architecture. California’s LUMMIS HOME was the brash and bizarro creation of CHARLES FLETCHER LUMMIS. Between 1896 and 1910 this author and lover of all things Native American built this sturdy self-styled structure using stones from the bed of LA’s Arroyo Seco. Dubbed ‘El Alisal’ this far-out gem endures today, boasting hand-crafted wooden furniture, concrete flooring, stunning wooden cross beams, personal artifacts from Lummis’ life, and even (no joke) door knobs made from meteorites. Matt ‘n Matt capture the structural madness of this Pueblo-influenced partypad, so make sure you download that PDF, kids.
All that, plus a musical playlist that’ll have you ravin’ for the ‘niners…
