In all fairness the title of this post probably lead you to believe that I was going to be talking straight music. So when it turns out that Shaun Bloodworth is actually a photographer and ‘Underground’ is an exhibition of his work if you are indeed slightly taken aback I apologise. Got to keep you on your toes.
We went along to the opening party last night and were treated to free beer, DJ sets from Mary Anne Hobbs and Grievous Angel and, above all, excellent photography. Shaun has been documenting the electronic bass music scene since 2005, taking in the rise of Dubstep etc. over here with Rinse and that before crossing the Atlantic and getting in on the LA beat action. ‘Underground’ features, among others: Skream, Benga, Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Roska, Mary Anne Hobbs, Ramadanman and there’s a sweet shot of some plugs too. If you want to sample the goods, this Bleep blog post will sort you out.
‘Underground’ will be running at Bank Street Arts in Sheffield city centre for another week or so. Shaun and the crew also want to take this exhibition down to London (and beyond) so get involved, spread the love. More and info and prints to buy can be found on the official site. The video below is a trailer for a little film put together for Sonar last year, you can watch the whole thing here.
