Excited to be taking over downstairs at Ace Hotel in London this Saturday 30th November. We’ll be joining forces with Bristol selectors FallingUp for another session following on from our party with Jay Daniel a couple of weeks back. Celebrating the release of his double EP on Idle Hands, Andy Mac will be representing FallingUp along with Jay L and Donuts’ own Tom D.
We’re happy to welcome PRMTVO to the ranks this season with their first collection; dope tees and sweats straight outta LA.
In the last 6 years we’ve thrown a lot of parties; from shutting down the tiny and infamous Tube putting Jammer and Ghetts in there to taking over a forgotten foyer in the Colston Hall for 3 hours of sublime disco and loops with Soundstream, it’s always been about putting on the music we’re feeling. At this point in time that’s summed up pretty perfectly by just two people.
Kindred spirits from opposite sides of the Atlantic, Kyle Hall and Funkineven know their way around a drum machine like few others. Separately and together under their FUNKINEVIL moniker they produce some of the rawest, realest music out there and we’re very excited to present a rare extended B2B from them to celebrate 6 years of Donuts as clothing store and party.
In support we have heads of the newly founded and already essential Happy Skull imprint The Kelly Twins, plus our very own Tom D.
First release tickets £10 from RA now and other outlets soon.
Saturday 13th July sees London’s Old Spitalfields play host to Independent Label Market with the heads of 50 of the UK’s best independent record labels coming together to sell vinyl and provide a reminder of the joy of buying music face to face in an increasingly digital world.
10 of these labels have cut a record especially for event and SWAMP81 is amongst that number. 50 copies of Loefah’s first release in 5 yearswill be available on the day, priced £10 and with the proceeds going to Oxfam’s Syrian refugee appeal.
To mark the occasion a run of 100 of the SWAMP81 VS Donuts 001 tees have been produced in a white/outlined black colourway. These will be available at the Independent Label Market and from Donuts on Saturday.
In addition a number of these tees and the acetate used to produce the screen for them will be customised by artists affiliated to SWAMP81 before being auctioned for Oxfam.
