I am super excited about this, but I can’t decide if I should go for one day or two? Click on the image above to find out more about it.
I was recently in London for a few days. I guess the main point of the trip was to check out Benji B‘s night called Deviation. Its on the first Wednesday of every month at Gramaphone. It was one of the best club night’s I have been to this year. Electric Wire Hustle were playing live and although I had never heard of them before they were pretty tight, check them out if you can. Joy Orbison was there as well playing a house set rather than what he usually plays, which was great, but the real reason it was great was Benji B DJing, it was just like his radio show, which I have been listening to every week for the last couple of years. It was great to hear Quest’s Smooth Skin as I went into the club. The tune that got me on the dance floor was the instrumental of Mingi by Mim Suleiman. He just played loads of great music. The venue was tiny and the drinks were reasonably priced. I’ll definitely be heading back there again next time I am in London.
As usual I checked out some shops. Bought some new t-shirts from Slam City. I bought the Penrose Triangle t-shirt from Palace, a new dry fit pocket tee by Nike SB and I also bought the Emerica charity t-shirt which sees all the money going towards the Southbank project. More info about it in the video below.
I went to an amazing Japanese restaurant called Koya. It specializes in Udon noodles. It was super busy and we were lucky to get a table looking into the kitchen. I had hot noodles with beef, which was great. I think the highlight of the meal was seaweed salad, which tasted of the sea. I also checked out the Design Museum and also the maps exhibition at the British Library. Oh yeah, I also bought this cheeky little t-shirt too.
