In Photos Special: Independent Label Market 2012 - Spitalfields

by Tim Boddy, 19 May 2012

The 405 spent a thoroughly pleasant couple of hours at the Independent Label Market in Spitalfields - where a dangerous (to our wallets anyhow) amount of vinyl, CDs, cassetes, badges, coffee and hangovers were on offer, from all our favourite labels.

A smashing atmosphere in terms of company and goodwill was absorbed, alongside a range of oddities to explore. Such as the 'Bobby Womack Experience' via XL Recordings; simply stick your head in an astronaut's helmet, and see what Womack would see and hear. Check out the photos from the annual London-based event in this article.

Warp Records, who served up a tombola


Smiley chaps at Lex


Sunday Best in their Sunday best


Full Time Hobby, the label that Seams recently signed to...


...And a Seams bag nearby


Moshi Moshi


R&S Records, who had a great deal of test pressings and other goodies on offer


The Bobby Womack experience at the XL Recordings stall




Chess Club, who we learned went to great lengths to source these retro cassette players



Factory Floor at the O. Genesis stall



Tim Burgess



Fortuna Pop!


The Fabric stall, where a lucky dip was on offer for £5; prizes from Fabriclive Cd's to fabricfirst memberships


The rest...

    I Love You Dude (really) // The 405 meets Digitalism

    by Tim Boddy

    It's a big day for Digitalism; for it is precisely one week before the release of 2nd album I Love You, Dude, and tonight is the night when the duo kick-start their European tour. Jens "Jence" Moelle and İsmail "Isi" Tüfekçi seem in relaxed and jovial mood though despite of this, prior to the gig at a sultry XOYO where we caught up with them in the empty Room 2 at the venue.
