As part of the Studio Africa season, Diesel held a radio weekend broadcasting live from their flagship store on Regent Street with a schedule of back to back djs and live acts. Here is Stephen Budd from Africa Express who kicked off the proceedings on Saturday morning ........... ending on a set by Awesome Tapes From Africa at the wrap party I hosted (complete with cases of awesome tapes to mix!). The whole programme was streamed live thru Dazed Digital with Afrika Boy doing a live P.A both days (see above) turning the shopping street into a jam-packed block party on Saturday night. For the rest of this week different evening events are being catered by Zoe's Ghana Kitchen who put on a smashing smash'n'grab buffet with a peanut curry she described as "a sexy suggestion of spice" when I enquired on it's Scotch Bonnet heat.
Head over to the site to see the complete line-up and discover the playlists.
