SAVE YOU Records Podcast

DeadEcho’s Chill Your Bones Mix – Save You Records – Music to Save You Podcast vol 2 by Save You Records

Save You is a digital Record Label based in London. They provide a platform for established/up and coming artists and thrive on Forward thinking House, Techno and Electronica. We have been lucky enough to be home for great artists such as DeadEcho, MarcAshken, Jay Tripwire, Pezzner, Jay Haze and Pedramovich.

With so much wondrous music in the world outside the realms of straight up house and techno, we decided to create a fairly chilled blend of what is currently setting sparkles off in our over excited minds. This mix features music from the likes of the mind-blowing new talent Koreless to old electronica favourite Four Tet. Also a couple of cheeky remixes along the way like the marvellous Synkro Remix of The XX and Ricky Eats Acid mix of…errr….Rihanna (its incredible). Enjoy x

Exclusive Coggles Street Style Film

Coggles the fashion boutique has brought clothes to life through the medium of video. A series of short films featuring Coggles clothing worn by actual people from the streets is a first for the store. The decision was made after a few years of documenting people’s outfits in their online street style feature.
Nick Scaife the resident photographer, has shot over 1,000 people for the feature and has a keen eye for style. By hooking up with filmmaker Terry Hall they collaborated to take this further and shot a select few dapper dressers to see the clothes in situ. The people in question are three self styled Coggles shoppers, Valene, Natasha and Olubiyi. We’ve include one video from the series to help give you an inspirational fix on what and how mens wear can be worn.

The Design Museum London – What’s on

This is Design

The Design Museum currently has an exhibition on called ‘This is Design’ (24 August – 22 January 2012). It’s a great retrospective look on design practical design from around the country. They have acquired the classic red telephone box from BT which celebrates its 75 birthday this year and a set of traffic lights designed by David Mellor. David Mellor is a key figure in British design and is internationally acclaimed for many iconic designs including galvanised steel bus shelters, the square pillar box and modern cutlery.

This exhibition is a great introduction to design as it’s all so familiar in everyday life. So no need to be frightened off, give it a go!

Puma.Creative Kit Launch at the Design Museum

From 8th November – 27th November 2011 Puma presents new football kit designs for 10 partnered African National teams. The designs were commissioned from a selection of designs by African artists and the exhibition shows how they were created from a strong cultural background.

Puma formed in 1948 following a disagreement of two brothers Adolf and Rudolf Dassler over their joint sportswear company ‘Gebruder Dassler Schuhfabrik’. Quite handy as the two new companies spawned from this were ‘Puma’ and ‘Adidas’ which are much more succinct!

The relationship with Puma and the African nations has been established for over 10 years and their ‘Play for Life’ scheme in association with UNEP supports biodiversity and raising awareness about habitat and species conservation. Through promoting this around worldwide football events it can raise the profile quickly and in manageable chunks. And this exhibition is no different…people love football and if it attracts an audience and increases awareness then it works! Go this weekend.
