Back to the Future – Exclusive id-iom mix tape with original slate cover art! All for the grand price of nothing! You’ve just got to find it…

It’s 2013 and we’re going back to the future with our street art take on the classic mix tape. It’s a combination of that old school hop with that new school hip! Although we have had to move with the times so we’ve gone and burned it on CD.

Both members of id-iom have been djing for more years than we care to remember and rather than go the inevitable route of uploading our mixes to Soundcloud and have no-one listen to it we’ve gone all experimental and attempted to fuse our street art activities and proclivity for making mix tapes. We’ve completed the hour long mix and then done the slate cover art to compliment the tunes. From there it’s just a matter of putting it on the street and seeing what happens.

Only a very small number of copies exist and ideally we’re hoping that we’ll get a reply/critique/abuse via email from whoever found it and then hopefully they’ll upload it to the web and share it around for further praise/ridicule. Really we’re just too lazy to upload it ourselves and are hoping that someone else will do it for us. It looks better that way. So, if you see one of these suckers on the street feel free to take it home and then lambast us via email on our shoddy skills and poor tune selection.

It’s the size of a standard roofing slate and has the CD securely taped to the back so she should last a reasonable amount of time out in the open. It has been completed using the magic of paint pens, spraypaint and stencils. They are signed on reverse with our trademark id-iom stencil and logo.

We are also now open to submissions – so if you dj at all and fancy taking part just get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. You can find more information on our facebook page here.
Happy hunting!

Cardboard, cardboard, everywhere!

There’s nothing like giving yourself more work to do. I printed up these bits of cardboard in order that we could do some street drops (once the weather had bucked up and the cardboard would survive more than 2 minutes in the rain) but then decided it would be best if they were all hand-finished thus increasing our workload exponentially (i love that work ‘exponentially’!)

Anyway I always wonder what happens with pieces when you put them on the street. Do people pick them up? Does the bin man get them? Are they otherwise destroyed? Who knows. What they do once released is up to them – although i always wish them the very best of luck. It’s a harsh world out there and the circle of life is always turning but surely some must make it somewhere nice…

Crotch hot & happy

With the weather seemingly on the turn it seems a fine time to bring out this lovely little ray of sunshine. As we begin to realise there is life after winter and start making plans for summer surely everyone looks forward to drinks, barbecues, holidays and sunbathing. Well this young lady is already there and clearly enjoying it.

The line ‘crotch hot and happy’ comes from a book called Bastion Falls by Susie Maloney and for some reason this obviously had some resonance with me. After the mandatory gestation period from reading the book to coming up with a design this is what came forth…
