Monday 26th October: Jamie XX "Good Times / In Colour" Pop Up Shop

Everything about the campaign for this album has been a kaleidoscopic dream for me since first hearing it at the listening party, thru to receiving the coloured vinyl double gatefold.  I've photographed the spectrum stained window at Phonica, the painted shutter at Rough Trade West for Carnival and now visited the Shoreditch pop-up shop.  After last week's show at Brixton Academy, Young Turks took the tour's merch and a whole stack more of spectrum goodies to open a "Good Times" theme store.  All the original records that were sampled on the debut were put together to not only listen to but also buy................ spinning on the rainbow slip-mat turntable.  By day you could shop the shelves of t-shirts, caps, bags, stationary and by night attend parties streamed live on NTS with a revolving roster of friends inc. Sampha, Lil Silva, Benji B, One-man etc.  If you weren't able to make it down to the shop, head over to the site to scoop up the multicolour wonders such as this special edition Risograph print.
