It’s with great pleasure that we have a new playlist provide by Jason Jules long time friend of the brand from his early days at the Watchmen agency and beyond so in his own words…
Jason Jules is a writer and creative director. If he were to compete on Mastermind he’d specialise in music or menswear and probably say ‘pass’ to all the general knowledge questions. He’s super interested in Modernism right now and is about to launch a blog dedicated to ‘everything from Bauhaus, acid house and your mum’s house.
A young historian and educator enthusiastic about music and fashion. Coming from a background of subculture. I’m keen on exploring the connections between the different dimensions of the past and present subcultural reality, from the inside and from the outside. Captured in a number of articles for fanzines and magazines, as well as a paper for the prestigious Culture & History Digital Journal. I collect records of many sorts but I have special weakness for Jamaican sounds from the 60’s and 70’s.
“I shall fear no evil” is a mixtape for 6876. A fine selection of timeless early reggae, rocksteady and ska classics. Mixed and recorded in mono at home (E8) during isolation with strictly vinyl from my personal collection.
Ed Martin Aka EdV3ctor is a long term supporter of Six Eight Seven Six & owner of a few garments in his time.
So its an honour for us to have such a luminary of the Leeds (& UK) music scene creating a a mix for our Soundcloud series.
