An apt welcome considering the events that have taken place since I
last posted, it seems to have been a panic stricken two weeks where we
have had terrorist plans foiled and ebola threats trying to sneak into
our suspecting bodies. If you’re reading this then I believe you have
survived, and the good news for you is that there is plenty to look
forward to here at Preciptocamp.
DRINKS, THINKS AND
INKS RETURNS LIKE A DRUNK INTELLIGENT SQUID.
If you’re a creative person who likes a tasty alcoholic beverage and a
bloody good time, then you should head over to The Proud Archivist in
Hoxton, and join the ADV guys for a night of thought pooling and
unleash that inner genius! A very relaxed atmosphere, great company,
and a perfect way to unwind from the daily grind. You can book your
tickets here for the 4th November at the price of 10 English pounds.
“LOVE SICK”, LIKE
KANYE WITH KIM, IS IN ITS FINAL STAGES, LIKE KANYE WITH KIM.
Bernard James has handed ADV’s newest musical child to Francis
Kimberley over at Hungry Bear Mastering to make it bang hard in the
trunk, for those driving an American muscle car, or bang hard in your
mum’s boot for those who are still a named driver aged 26 (me).
Remember, to celebrate the launch of this milestone album you can join
everyone on 15th November at K2K studios for drinks and live music,
with tickets on sale here. It’s for Paper Cuts’ first birthday
primarily, so two great reasons to get down there.
The track listing for LoveSick has been announced. Feast your eyes on
the following words, names and sentences and try to imagine what those
songs will sound like. Have yourself a one person silent disco, with
literally no music and only your imagination to rock out to. Create
your very own Adventures Of… album based on the named tracks in
anticipation for the actual release, so when you do hear it in real
life on 15th November, you will be pleasantly surprised with what has
actually been recorded.

K.P. V.S. B.J.,
Genesis cinema is the venue to see these two showdown, with one winner
sure to be crowned. Who will win? Who knows? Who cares? Me for one, and
you should too because it’s a poetry SLAM. I think it’ll be similar to
a verbal version of WWE, but with less acting, less John Cena, and
plenty more low blows. Not just poetry either, there’ll be music,
movies and food, but ultimately: fun. You can check it out on 30th
October in Mile End, it’s going to be the most electrifying scenes in
spoken word entertainment.
BLOWN AWAY BY SAANDS
Not many people know this, but I set myself a challenge. To take some
samples of Middle Eastern music and try and flip it in my own style. I
gave myself just shy of two weeks to try and fit this mini project in,
and it’ll be available on Sunday 26th October for free download if
you’d like to check it out. If you want to suggest my next sample task,
then let me know on my new Twitter - @lebopnik. It can be anything;
French opera, Australian rugby chants, or maybe the new Wonga jingle.
Up to you.
WHAT’S LEBOP GOT ON?
To be honest, much of my spare time has been working on this mini
project, so I haven’t heard a great deal of new music. Now, I know
they’ve become the soundtrack to the new Amazon smartphone, but,
pre-Fire, Jungle released an album that I think is very, very cool. I’m
a big fan of groups such as Chromeo and Phantogram, and Jungle have
that 80’s warmth and funk to them that I willingly drown in. I urge you
to take the time to listen to their album and bypass their ‘Busy
Earning’ single, so check out this beauty. It’s called Lemonade Lake,
and it’s like breathing in all the fun of the fair after swimming, with
water still in your ears. In the best possible sense.
Right, that’s just about all for now. Until next time.
