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!

Rogue Fader

Rogue Fader! Even his name strikes fear into the hearts of evildoers. He was raised on the tough streets of the Isle of Man and now drifts among the denizens of London’s underworld looking to dispense musical justice. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire the Rogue Fader…

I’m joking of course as he’s usually pretty easy to find and deep down he really wants to be liked by all. He wants to be liked so much that he’s set up his own Facebook page where you too can like him too. And it’s full of free mixes for you to download and enjoy. And if you like him he’ll like you back. But not in his special way. He reserves that for more personal meetings. Be warned.

Anyway, his brand new id-iom logo fuses two of his main loves in life – parrots and Star Wars! What more could a man want…

Cue the Star Wars cantina music!

They could be brothers…

I have always told Hugo that he was adopted. Now perhaps i have some hard evidence to prove it… It appears that he has more in common with Shepard Fairey that would seem apparent at first glance.

We never knew where Hugo came from but now it appears he must have been shipped over from the US (or maybe they were both born in the UK and Shep was taken to the US!) Not only do they both dabble in street art, they both have diabetes and they both fancy themselves as dj’s (although i’ve got to say that DJ Diabetic is a particularly uninspiring name!) Coincidence? I think not. Point proven. Case closed.

I have nicked one photo below but for more proof all you have to do is follow the link here
