Launching with 9-part launch series, the new club project will be headed up by three of the UK capital's most coveted curators, Tommy Gold and Skinny Macho of Bone Soda, and multi-hyphenate 'it girls' BossyLDN, and will feature a Highsnobiety Soundsystem on October 5th; check here for ticket info.
In uncertain political times, it's reassuring to see that the UK's creative scene is in as healthy as ever, with a new generation of selectors, curators and entrepreneurs working to defy expectations and blur the lines between creative disciplines. Tommy Gold, BossyLDN and Skinny Macho are three of the city's finest examples of this mentality, each working fluidly at the intersection of music and street fashion, coming together as residents for Mantra; a new project by Phonox Club, celebrating London's new wave of hip hop inspired, genre-bending artists.
Launching next week with a pre-party in collaboration with cult East London streetwear store Ejder, the 9-part opening series, supported by Highsnobiety, features a host of cutting edge DJs and brands, including Patta Soundsystem, Places + Faces Present +Sounds, Liam Hodges - with each event to feature unannounced guests and headline acts.
Check out the launch video below, and keep an eye out for the Highsnobiety Soundsystem Curator Series - where Tommy Gold, BossyLDN and Skinny will show us London through their eyes (and ears), with three curated playlists that remind them of home, and recommendations on their favourite stores, spaces and food spots.
