erformer and artist known for his part in the Boy group ‘Neverland Clan’, Ryan Hawaii is somebody to keep an eye on. From his innovative music to his pop up store, Ryan has gained a lot of publicity and attraction from the biggest names in the grime scene.

For the individuals who don't know who the Neverland Clan are, they comprise of individuals Okimi (Videographer and artist), Daniel OG (Musician/maker/rapper), and Omelet (performer) who, combined together, are the people who make loud noise in the underground rap scene. Ryan and his folks are nicknamed as London's response to the A$AP Mob. The Clan have effectively been seen to resemble the likes of Skepta and Virgil Abloh and have recently thrown down one of the hypest Boiler Room shows to date. Ryan Hawaii has previously created fashion pieces for brands such as; ‘Lazy Oaf’ and ‘Red Bull Future Underground’. By looking at his creations it’s obvious to see that he gets his inspiration from heavy metal shirts, playing with imagery that isn’t perceived as ‘real life’. The style that Neverland Clan show off creates a ‘I don’t care’ individual style and attitude. Their style is perfectly DIY. In February this year Ryan Hawaii had designer Apex Jai request that he create a pop up store with him in Bethnal Green. There were MCs performing and Skepta even made an appearance. From this, Ryans career sky rocketed and he has now become even more recognized within the fashion industry. He has since been given opportunities to run a pop up store with Selfridges and has been approached by Skepta to create one off designs.

GOLFWANG TYLER THE CREATOR

golfwangs fashion show debut by: victoria sutton Tyler The Creator who is mainly recognised for his music, is taking his fashion expertise to the next level. Just like other rappers such as A$AP Mob representing for their VLONE brand and Kanye West’s Yeezy shows. Tyler, The Creator will be the next up with it’s own runway show. With his own clothing line ‘Golf Wang’ hitting its first runway show this summer in LA. Tyler spoke out saying ‘“I just figured, Why not? Why not do something different? Not everybody in the upper fashion world is wearing all-black Saint Laurent pieces and is super pretentious. I want to show them a different world.” His style and clothing line consists of brightly coloured garish outfits with a variety of tee’s, jackets and hats with a childish outlook. The runway show which Tyler likes to refer to as ‘an experience’ will take place on June 11 as part of MADE LA; a series of fashion events hosted at LA Lives Even Desk. We don’t know what Tyler has in store for us, but we definitely know that it won’t be the average dull fashion show

“Printed in wild hues with tongue-in-cheek designs.”

PASTELLE

THE KING OF THE YOUTH IAN CONNOR


M

odel and style entrepreneur Ian Connor has been an influential force in fashion and street culture for a considerable amount of time now. Known as ‘The King of the Youth’, Ian became a member of the A$AP crew as an influential fashion and street culture personality. Flashback to 2012 around the time that Connor began to explode; he was running with some of Tumblr's most famous group of guys; Glyn Brown, Ken Rebel, Ade Oyeyemi and Joo Henderson, who made up L3NF. It was then that Ian and the rest of his friends made a name for themselves through inspiring street fashion design by showing their indifferent states of mind with the force of the Internet. The thing that made Ian Connor noticed was his joint work with Will Fry to deliver a stand-out amongst the most important street wear bits by creating a co-ord jumper and shorts set with Ians face plastered all over them. Ian gained himself attention from just everything he did

from Rhude, 424onFairfax, Lumieres and even top brands such as Stussy and Supreme competing for him to feature in their lookbooks. Not constraining himself Ian extended his music and soon came to be connected with A$AP Mob. Ian becoming a part of the Mob got him globally recognized, especially when he made his appearance in music videos for Shabba Ranks and Angels. Being a member from A$AP Mob kept on opening the doors for Ian. In 2014, Ian even went to London where he was getting a lot of recognition and was then welcomed royally going back to the US to further his developing social legacy. After London, came the opening of his first-ever store in Ohio called ‘Nova’, a boutique concentrated on offering brands that define today’s street culture. He achieved this with the help of; A$AP Bari, another A$AP Mob member. Now that you have an idea of who Ian Connor is, I’m sure you’re wondering what Pastelle is! Pastelle is a clothing line Kanye West created; most known as

Yeezy, which came out during his album ‘College Dropout’, which was released in 2004, where some people would be familiar with him wearing a polo embroidered with a bear. Even though Kanye never released the T-shirt, due to wanting to really get into high fashion. Therefore, Kanye passed down Pastelle to his muse; Ian Connor, it will be interesting to see which direction Ian takes the brand.

COOKIES AND MILK Inspired by playful patterns, and pastel prints, this summer is all about the colour. Brands like Lazy Oaf and Golfwang are ones to watch out for. It’s goodbye to the puffer jackets and skinny jeans and time to chuck on some pink shorts, grab a Mr Whippy and go chill in the (hopefully) sunny rays.

HUNTAR THE NAMELESS MUSICIAN ALSO KNOWN AS HUNTAR IS ONE TO WATCH THIS SUMMER After killing it throughout 2015 performing for BBC Radio1’s Big Weekend and doing a headline show in London- he’s now taking the UK by storm on his tour with the band ‘Coasts’ and being featured as Zane Lowes hottest record in the world with the single “4am”. Huntar talks about his music taking influences from music sensations such as Prince, MJ and growing up listening to the likes of Justin Timberlake, Drake and Mystery Jets his music genre branches out. Describing his music as ‘epic and sexy’ you can hear the ‘R&B and Indie Pop’ perfectly throughout his tracks such as his recent single ‘4AM’ and ‘Sk1n’.


I wanted to get everything that was in my head and the feelings I felt out

Taking inspiration from real life situations and writing his own music he tells us he prefers more of a raw production with no routine. ‘I don’t have a process, I don’t like to make it robotic or regiment it. Sometimes start with piano, sometimes a vocal idea, sometimes drums.’ Huntar has had a busy year so far in 2016 with his most recent single ‘4am’ being released along with a music video, his own headline show and the UK tour with Coasts. With the constant change of surroundings between the studio and stage we ask where he prefers working; ‘I love writing new music to play live for people so I guess both. When I’m on tour I can’t wait to get back and write and when I’m writing I can’t wait to play the new music to people live.’

With the British summer festival season beginning and the British music scene being in it’s prime- Huntar explains how the British music scene is ‘raw and a little bit grittier than the rest of the world and it’s really endearing.’ And how we should look out for the ‘rarity of the sun in England and be very British’. Check out @HUNTARmusic on all social media to keep up to date with his latest music and tours.

The HeavyTrackerz are British record producers from Walthamstow, London. Presently the group is comprised of Lord Teedot, G. Tank, Ras Eye and Danbytes.The Heavytrackrz have been making records for many years however they didn’t gain recognition until 2014 when they released/ produced Grime single by Rapper Meridian Dan’s “German Whip” which was then on UK Singles Charts, a major deal for them! The Heavy Trackerz have produced tracks for other artists such as; Wiley, Big Narstie, Roll Deep, Boy Better Know and many more from the grime scene. Their hard work has been paying off, the Heavy Trackerz make ‘one of a kind’ music. Danbytes; a member of Heavy Trackerz, recently let us know that 2016 has been an ‘insane year’ for them. From touring with Lethal Bizzle (UK rapper) to even DJing for him, they have been really busy, to say the least. Being on tour with them has given them the understanding of what life on tour has been like. They’ve been mentoring up and coming rappers such as Blitz Gally- this just goes to show that they’ve progressed from starting as supporting acts to fully fledged big shot producers. The Heavy Trackerz have accomplished a lot so far so it’s exciting to see what is in store for the future- one thing to look forward to is their slot at Born & Bred festival in Haggerston in the summer- SAT 4TH JUNE-5TH JUNE.

2ND DROP RECORDS 2ndDrop (un)officially began at FWD>>, a dubstep and grime night in London. Label owners James Bliss and Mark Gurney were regulars to the night and both had a passion for the sub-frequency based music. The 2ndDrop adventure first began when they heard Skream playing Ramadanman’s ‘Good Feelin’ on Rinse FM and he mentioned that he was thinking about giving it away for free. 2ndDrop then agreed that it was too good to give away and asked him if he wanted to do a 12”. With an unofficial remix of Jamie Woon’s – “Wayfaring Stranger” in “The Woon” on the b-side, this was the first release for the label. Soon after the release the boys at 2ndDrop continued to attend FWD and DMZ: a seminal night in the growth of Dubstep. This, coupled with the mastering house they used to cut dubs, became regular networking places for them. With the likes

of Rusko, J:Kenzo, LD, Untold and various other crucial members of the early Dubstep scene being added to the labels early discography. When listening back to these early releases it is clear to hear how 2ndDrop nurtured their sound, to become an ever changing, forward thinking base for like-minded artists to promote their music. Fast forward to present day, with names like Djrum, Alix Perez and Pedestrian heading up multiple releases, it’s clear to see that 2ndDrops forward-thinking mentality remains a key theme throughout their music. After almost a year break, 2ndDrop have announced a return to releasing music with 3 Djrum releases due out over the Summer with the first “Forgetting” due to drop on the 10th of June.

URBAN EXPLORER

“anything we could climb we would”

47


MEET HARRY HARRY AND HIS “BESTIES”

G

rowing up in Rugby just South of Birmingham Harry began his passion for free running. ‘I started it when I was 12 or 13, just climbing on walls and stuff around the town, anything we could climb we would.’ The sport has become increasingly popular over the years as more and more people are getting from A to B using aerobatic techniques. Many people aren’t aware of what even to call this but it is instantly recognisable and respected by many. Eventually his appetite for climbing structures on the floor lead to urban exploration which essentially led him and a few others to London. His group got bored of climbing the low roofs of Rugby and were excited by the capital cities skyscrapers. ‘London has bigger and more complex buildings which made it more of a challenge, the views were better and meant our photos looked sick.’ Climbing way over a hundred buildings including the likes of the Olympic Stadium, Southbank tower and Guys hospital (the building next to the shard.) London’s sky line has been their challenge, capturing stunning images from the clouds point of view and breaking the law to get them. With only getting in trouble with the police a handful on times, these emerging creatives enjoy the fact that by doing something so illegal and essentially life threatening, you can capture images that people wouldn’t be able to see unless they did it. With technically perfected techniques to work how to climb each building their select group of friends have also perfected running and hiding from the police if needs be. ‘Normally they just let us off because were just kids with cameras, but sometimes it has its consequences.’ Being held in a Danish cell after travelling out there to do a number of climbs. He told us ‘the Danish police are the nicest people so they were kinda okay with it, although we did get a £50 fine which was kinda peak as its your fare back to the UK.’


With these niche images from the heights of skyscrapers, to the tunnels of the underground, Harry has found him selfbecoming more and more popular on many social media platforms. Getting hundreds of messages from randomers asking how they got down to the tunnels or up each building, he refuses to give away any of his knowledge for a number of reasons. ‘If I told them how to do it and they got caught they would dob us into the police. Also if everyone started doing it people wouldn’t appreciate the photos we get as much.’

Considering his creative output, Harry was shocked by the sudden interest from others making 2015 till now his most successful year yet. The constant increase of followers has gone on to capture the attention of Channel Four, where they shot a short film of them climbing up The Orbit Tower next to the Olympic Stadium, or ‘the red thing’ as Harry refers to it. As a result of this, you can expect big things from Harry in the upcoming year as he plans to continue challenging London and its unexplored places. After all, there’s no stoppin him.

Although the images they capture are captivating and a thrill to get, the boys enjoy the journey to get them, just as much if not more. The risk of falling doesn’t really cross their minds, as being confident in what you do is key. He tells us how his parents like the photos but are against how they get them often causing tension in the household.

THE GUY THAT CLIMBS SHIT

49


We caught up with Instagram babe Elizabeth Jane Bishop and spoke about music, style and her cartoon attire. With Elizabeth taking the internet by storm and recently collaborating with ‘THE NET SET’ and ‘Diesel’ we wanted to find out a little bit more about her personal life. WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY? Metallic silver knee high boots, MISBHV hoodie and a velvet choker WHAT IS YOUR JOB AND WHY DO YOU DO IT? I work at Hunger Magazine as a digital editor, contributor and Art Director and model. I work at Hunger because it’s an amazing place to work, with an amazing team of great people and exactly what I want to do. I also model for £££££ but I’ve never really considered myself a model although I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I get given – they have been life changing. WHAT TALENT DO YOU WISH YOU HAD? I wish I could dance.. I’m awful but its fun. WHAT WAS YOUR BIG BREAK? When I got scouted by my manager WHAT’S THE CRAZIEST NIGHT YOU’VE HAD? I don’t think it’s appropriate for juicebox magazine... WHAT IS THE MOST RECENT PHOTO ON YOUR IPHONE? A line sheet from Versace


YOUR PLANE IS ABOUT TO CRASH, WHAT SONG DO YOU LISTEN TO? Don’t stop me now - Queen IF YOU WERE A CARTOON CHARACTER, WHAT WOULD YOUR ONE OUTFIT BE? A super sexy black latex catsuit which allowed me to become invisible – a bit like Violet from The Incredibles but an 18+ version. WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE MENSWEAR DESIGNER AND WHY? I love Craig Green he seems to do what he wants and doesn’t give a fuck or follow what everyone else is doing which is admirable. WHAT MUSIC GENRE DO YOU THINK HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON MEN’S FASHION IN 2016? Definitely the 70’s, bold prints, flares and cute accessories. I loved Grace Wales Bonner during LCM. I wish men dressed like that every day but everyone seems to be so obsessed street brands and shit rap music, it’s kind of boring. ATTENDING ANY FESTIVALS THIS SUMMER If yes, who are you looking forward to seeing? Hell no – I’m not a festival person. I don’t even know who’s in the music charts or even where to find the music charts….
