UK Black and "UK bass legend" (Mixmag) Dobie releases his first album for Big Dada. Thirteen tracks of deep, beautifully worked instrumental music, based in hip hop but touching on everything from techno, house, dubstep, latin,two step, jazz, soul, funk and everything in between, We Will Not Harm You is a work of art in its own right. But it also has a work of art on its cover - Turner Prize winner Chris Ofili has painted an original image specifically for the album.
To tie in with the release of his solo album, 18 Hewett Street Gallery presents an exhibition of some of his most iconic shots. Featuring stars of the skate world such as Steve Caballero, Bod Boyle, Neil Blender (many originally shot for the cover of legendary UK skate mag R.a.D.) plus giants of hip hop including The Fearless Four andWhodini, the exhibition will feature prints and a rolling slide show. A private view/album launch on the evening of Thursday February 7th will also feature a DJ set from Dobie, playing selections from his new album.
This Friday finds Big Dada Records holding court at the Big Chill House in Kings Cross, London, with entry costing you absolutely nothing all night long.Read More
