In Photos Special: Independent Label Market 2012 - Spitalfields
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.

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

Ooh and here is the link to the relevant fourum thread: The 405 Flickr Group... (continued) [read more]
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.

The 405 covered The Playground Presents night at Koko recently - and had a photographer on hand to cover the likes of XXYYXX, Blackbird Blackbird and more with a behind the scenes twist. [read more]
