RWD Issue 145: March 2014 (w/ Clean Bandit)
It’s hard to believe that we’re already three months into the year! Seriously, where does the time go? Well, RWD have been busy travelling up and down the UK scouting models for the Face of JD; shout out Rake Ali, he’s definitely got the fans behind him and Boots by the sounds of how much hair gel he goes through.
Other than being stuck on packed trains full of football louts, we’ve also been working with adidas to help launch their new trend-lifestyle trainer, BOOST 2 by bringing together a group of creatives who have all seen their careers receive a noticeable boost. After selling 163,000 copies of their single Rather Be, our cover stars, Clean Bandit have seen their profile rise instantly. The four–piece are joined by a producer we’ve literally been trying to track down for years, Julio Bashmore as we head into the studio to discuss his rise through the house scene whilst we go backstage with model collective Justanorm to talk about life in front of the lens. Plus esteemed photographer Ravi Sidhu who can be found shooting the likes of Frank Ocean and Richard Branson, steps from behind the lens too.
We also meet Second City whose infectious productions make him #ReadyForAnything. Instagram don Peeje T asks WGAF? We talk to grime scene saviour Meridian Dan and we put a call in to
Cali rapper Nipsey Hussle. Not forgetting a trip into the world of artist PINS, Marc Kinchen trying his hardest to recall Hideout Festival and Alya doing her best to train like a Spartan as 300: Rise of the Empire hits cinemas.
We’re exhausted! See you next month where we’ll suddenly perk up, just in time for festival season/blagging season.
