SHOOK No.5 Vol1 Out Early April

SHOOK #005

(pull-up-to-ya) bumper s/s issue

"From Hyperdub’s Minister of Information Kode9 to deep disco magus David Mancuso… Brazilian folk artist Calma (whose work graces our cover) to Japanese Godzilla movie posters, we've got that nefarious and deleterious brainfood you need.

Read about the migraine skank and tribal skank on the funky house scene or the knee-drops and floor work of UK jazz dance crews, plus word up on Larry Blackmon of Cameo, Ethio jazz maverick Mulatu Astatke, and Detroit’s i-don’t-give-a-fuck producer Omar S. We feature Sierra Leonean fashion house Aschobi Designs, novelist Gemma Weekes, we tell the story of how hip-hop sampled Marvel comics, and how Adidas exploded on the football terraces of Anfield.

Plus, check out our interviews with Harmonic 313, Martyn, Culoe de Song (from Durban, S.A.), Silkie (from Hammersmith W10) and the Soca-tinged sounds of Toronto's Ghislain Porier. Reggae authority David Katz speaks to Ashley Beedle and Horace Andy; in the Lower East Side we catch up with DJs Rich Medina and Bobbito Garcia for an exclusive photo story; and Âme paint the history of electronic music in felt tip pens (no joke), plus lots of your regulars, reviews and rare shit. This issue really is too hot to handle, so buy some oven gloves while you’re at it
