The September issue of the i-D online mix-tape opens with the incredible, epic and outstanding Eats Everything: The Entrance Song. Nuff said.
That which follows equally advocates the awesome calibre of fresh material doing the rounds in the world of new music right now. Starting from the beginning, a very good place to start, Azealia Banks, Art Department, Scuba, Sweet Exorcist, Bei Major, ASAP ROCKY, Cloud Boat, Kash kid and Francis Pope all assemble en masse with a proverbial picnic basket packed full of autumnal treats. Littering beats like falling leaves, we’ve raked up some right stewed prunes for you to chow down on. Lick your lips, pass the sauce and tuck in. If you’re not hungry now, you soon will be.
Countryboy, Clym Evernden, is the award-winning illustrator who crafted the collage stylee cover art for September’s mix. Describing the direction he took when dreaming up his abstract image, Clym explained “I wanted the artwork to have a joyrider meets Thelma and Louise mood, which revolved around the idea of a ‘driving bassline’. This was inspired by the Pulp song ‘Joyriders’, which was released in 1995. I think the ‘Our Price’ price stickers, which also feature in the image are from a CD I bought in a charity shop, also from 1995.” Random, original and pretty inspired Clym’s crossed the t’s and dotted our i.
