def disco vol 3: Jason Jules

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.
