Daft Punk feat. Jay Z - “Computerized" audio.
Daft Punk. The jigga man. One track. Need we say more?
No. Because we can’t. There’s very little info on how this track came about but we dig it.
7 Days of Funk: Snoop & Dam-Funk - “High Wit Me”
Anyone who grew up in the 90’s needs to see this video. Listen with your ears. Both of them.
Everyone deserves a second chance.
We can’t be the only ones that see a new film drop, have the best intentions of seeing it in all its glory on the silver screen and then not quite getting round to it. And at no point of the year is that more common than in the run up to the Golden Globes and Oscars, when unbelievable movies seem to crop up every other day.
Thankfully, there’s a collective out there that wants to give us (and you) a second chance. Second Chance Cinema, the brainchild of the Backyard Cinema, brings still relatively new releases to the opulent and unique surroundings of The Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green - a place worth visiting just to take in the Art Deco design of the place.
Over the next month, they’ll be screening the likes of Rush, Gravity, Captain Philips and Philomena in the hotel’s Anti-Chamber. As well the a visual feast, you’ll also be treated to posh popcorn and chocolate cigarettes from ushers and usherettes, as well as have the chance to sample specially designed cinema taster boxes created by award winning chefs from the hotel and some pretty rad cocktails.
Makes the local Odeon seem pretty pedestrian, doesn’t it?
