In 2010, Suspect Packages Live, a monthly showcase of Uk Hiphop, was launched at Vibe Bar in London, and now, we’re introducing it to the West Country, with Disorda giving us a live DJ-set of his Dub Chronicles radio shows rocking the finest from the foundation & forward.

And if thats not enough the b-boys will be busting some serious moves down on the floor!

Fingerfood & Squared Roots Clothing

Fingerfood, hardworking DJ/Producer on the Bath and Bristol scene for the last few years with Dusty Heads Crew, now launches his clothing label, Squared Root Clothing. With original designs and hand screen-printed by the man himself, this is dressing yourself in art. And with Fingerfoods defiance of Serato and MP3’s, it’s not surprising that the design flying of the shelves uses the image of the dearly loved ‘Rooted Records’ shop on Gloucester Road, with the tag ‘Support Vinyl’.

With the artwork on the flyer crafted by Fingerfood, this launch party will have exclusive prints being sold, t-shirt and hoodies, and bonus giveaways!
