Nash Money Sneaker Speakers

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Nash has been at it again, this time painstakingly transforming  a pair of AF1s into fully functioning speakers for Havana’s “Inspired Ingenuity” project.  Head on over to Art & Sole for more pictures and an interview with the man himself.  Big up Nash!

New Deadstock at Donuts

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

New in at Donuts: deadstock beanies, including some made by Starter, and a vintage Chicago Bulls windcheater.  Not sure exactly how old it is but it’s got two 1997 Illinois lottery tickets in the pocket.

Idle Hands Store Opening

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Tomorrow the Idle Hands record store opens its doors at 74 Stokes Croft, where DMT used to be.  Great news for the music scene in Bristol.

Head over to Fact for a few words with Chris or swing by the store this evening, rumour has it they’re having a little celebratory soiree.

Probation Vacation at

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

As well as producing some of the best tees ever to grace the rails at Donuts, Too Much Posse maintain a blog, light on words but heavy on the images from which they draw inspiration. A key element of that is graff and with that in mind they’ve sourced a few copies of Probation Vacation, the long-awaited debut book by Danielle Bremner and Jim Clay Harper VI, aka UTAH and ETHER from NYC. Probation Vacation showcases a selection of photographs from Bremner and Harper’s vast archive of rare images that, until now, have been viewed by only their closest confidants.

Head over to the TMP site for more info or to make a purchase, each book is unique and priced at just £10.

Keep SS11 Navajo Pack Preview

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Here’s a little preview of the Navajo pack from Keep’s SS11 collection, coming to Donuts in mens and womens sizes.

For this pack Keep have used “a dusty palette based on the medicine man’s eye, a design indicating wisdom and foresight”. They’ve also opted for a pesticide free, sustainably grown hemp rather than their usual canvas. We love them, we just hope they sell out before word spreads to St. Werburghs…

BTG X Donuts X EFA

Monday, February 21st, 2011

London’s BTG (Bridging The Gap) is a music and art blog that we at Donuts are big fans of so when they asked us to do a mix and interview for them we were stoked, although slack as ever about actually getting round to it. If you want to check it out then head over to their site, we wholeheartedly recommend the mix EFA put together.

Tyler The Creator – Yonkers

Sunday, February 13th, 2011


Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Dubloaded regularly put on some pretty jaw dropping lineups, especially considering it’s a midweek affair that always costs an utterly reasonable £5, but this one has got more people talking than any I can remember.  Frankly it’s going to be fucking stupid and if you need to know why check the Boiler Room sets from last week or Addison Groove’s new Jukebox mix.

See you there.

J Dilla Changed My Life

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

I’m ashamed to say I won’t be attending this but if I were in London tomorrow I sure as hell would be.  Y’all know why we’re called Donuts right?

Norse Projects SS11

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Norse Projects has grown to be one of the absolute favourite brands at Donuts over the last year, both for us personally and for you guys.  This season we’ve taken on a bigger selection from the range, adding jackets, shorts and denim to the shirts, tees and headwear we’ve had previously.

The first drop is just a day or two away so with this in mind here are a few tasters of what we have coming (stolen from Hypebeast’s collection preview).
