its time we took a stand...


“People equal ideas, and in the dirty swirl of modern identity politics, Londons diversity is its strength, its power and the root of its creativity, we need it now more than ever.�

p7 her art is often used to protest her strong opinions, so we asked her what it was she really wanted to say..


“its hard to feel human” “we work extra hard but theres someone that works more, we go to the gym and diet like crazy to make ourselves look better and it means nothing; because someone out there looks nicer. its destroying us” “thanks to instagram, facebook, twitter etc nobody is happy or secure in who they are or who theyre trying to be. why do you think we drink so much, and smoke so much”

Feminism in 2018 the mona lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci is regarded as the most famous painting of all time. Putting the art and the artist aside, it became so popular for its message. She became so popular due to a smile. I think its fair to say that in the last decade feminism has came a long way. Its sparked a lot of controversy. There are now suggestions that being a feminist, has become a trend, that people mindlessly follow without contributing at all, now it carries a certain weight to say youre a part of it, which has lead to an attention seeking scheme. Others have become threatened, and say the growth has surpassed the original aim of equality and is now approaching domination. I think we live in a society afraid of change, and in one that acts petulantly when a new idea presents itself. Its out with the old and in with the new, whether you like it or not. the mona lisa proved how far a smile can go... try it sometime. page 13

ONCE UPON A RAINY DAY... WE MANAGED TO CATCH UP WITH DJ AND PRODUCER deeDONTCARE. BEING FEATURED MULTIPLE TIMES ON SOULECTION RADIO IS ONE AMONG MANY ACCOLADES THAT WORKED TOWARDS OUR MAIN TOPIC... TURNING YOUR CREATIVE CRAFT INTO A 9-5 WITH THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND SOCIAL PLATFORMS IT LOOKS LIKE AN OVERNIGHT OCCURANCE, BUT SUSTAINABILITY IN THIS GAME IS THE KEY, AND ITS BECOMING CLEAR THAT THOSE WHO STAY AT THE TOP THE LONGEST, ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE WORKED FOR THE LONGEST, AND THE ONES THAT UNDERSTAND THE TRUE NATURE OF THE WORLD, YOU GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN. DEE IS NOW GROWING FASTER THAN EVER, WHEN YOURE SLEEPING HES WORKING, WHEN YOURE EATING HES WORKING, AND HES ONE OF THE MOST HUMBLE PEOPLE IVE MET. ITS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU CAN REACH, BUT ITS MORE IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM, AND THATS WHY HE WILL FIND SUCESS.
