LG from Style Warrior has been a busy boy of late, not only doing the T shirts but now launchiing a new show and website. About a year ago the idea was conceived. It’s all about unearthing great music, old and new. Here’s where I first heard of it, in the Disco Scratch forum (now deceased) in his own words…
“I had an idea a few weeks back, originally for a T-Shirt, but now may turn in to something bigger.
Whilst watching the Great British Menu TV show, a chef was making a meal for a War Veteran Dinner and mentioned the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign as inspiration.
I thought that would be a great T-Shirt… mimicking the ‘Dig On for Victory’ image, but with the figure carrying records from a car boot rather than his freshly dug vegetables.
Then I thought it would be a good idea to set a challenge for 2 people to go out to there local digging spots and with a set budget aim to buy a load of records… and then proceed to do a mix with them (a bit like the ‘King of the Beats’ challenge, but a mix rather than a beat). People could vote for a winner maybe?
THEN I thought it would be a good idea to auction off the records as a job lot, and all proceeds would go to charity (The British Legion maybe… linking in with the name).
This is early days and there are lots of ideas I have to make this a little community… probably involving a monthly podcast (maybe on Disco Scratch?)… but would love to hear any opinions at this stage.”
So, this is only the first show and will no doubt evolve over time, and an excellent show it was too! You can find this show played live on the second Thursday of every month straight after the Polystylism show from 10pm to 11pm. Please check him out on Mixcloud where you can follow, share, repost etc.
Looking forward to many more shows from Digging4Victory…
