We have produced a run of t-shirts to commemorate our lost brother Julian. All proceeds raised from the sale of t-shirts will go directly to his family.
We’ve been selling the shirts over the course of the weekend, and there are still a few left to shift in various sizes. If you’re in need of a tee, hit up the hot-line on 07809401598 and we will arrange the safe delivery of your goods.
In addition we have set up a page where those who were unable to purchase a tee can still make a donation – any amount is gratefully received. The page link is – HERE
The t-shirts will also be on sale at the event we have organised at Visions Video Bar, more details of which can be found at the bottom of the post.
We are also hosting the first of an array of events in his honour this Thursday @ Visions Video Bar in Dalston. The flyer for which is below;
The Facebook event page is HERE.
We’ve also arranged an exhibition which will open the following Friday (August 1st) at 71a Gallery on Leonard Street in Shoreditch – details of which will follow.
Rest in Peace Brother. x

This post is dedicated to our friend, our comrade, our brother…Julian, who despite never officially posting on the site, contributed to our early success and influenced everyone who was a part of the BNTL journey and touched the souls of all who were fortunate enough to call him a friend along the road in a way that words could not describe.
This selection of photo’s is the best way we possibly could.

With last Friday’s result securing Beastin a place in the semi-final of Beats by Dre’s global label battle, Beats by Dre renews its partnership with emerging Munich-based streetwear collective Beastin and combines with new Brazilian label Nephew to deliver two limited edition t-shirts celebrating their respective national football teams.
“We’ve brought together music and soccer as they are the biggest passion of Brazilian people,” said Nephew. “As a result we’ve created a print to support our people and country in a time of dual success and unrest.”
Of their creation Beasting said “smart play on the Beats logo in the Germany crest up front and trademark brand humor on the back nod to this standout clash with the Seleção..”
To complete the look, Beats by Dre Headphones are available in both yellow and white – ensuring the countries’ sounds are as loud as their crowds.

On the 25th May we had the pleasure of heading down to We Are Fstvl and despite only being around for a few years, this Festival has quickly made a name for itself as one of the leading dance music festivals in the UK, winning the Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards 2013.
This year they’ve expanded into a weekender for the first time over at the Essex airfield, grabbing early bird festival ravers from all necks of the wood.
Although the weather was pretty temperamental, with over 200 acts placed all under one roof, it was clearly going to take more than the odd bit of rain to ruin the vibes at We Are Fest. Truth be told, it wouldn’t really be a British festival without a tint of rain but needless to say no one seemed that bothered and it was a pretty good excuse for us to run to the bar and grab a free ice cold beverage from our booze bag courtesy of We Are Festival.
When a festival gives out free drinks to everyone that considered buying a VIP ticket, you tend to find yourself lurking in the VIP Area most of the day, luckily for us it happened to be hosted by MK and friends who had the tent buzzing especially when crowd favourites such as Route 94’s smash ‘My Love’ dropped.
Big names such as Pleasure State, Amine Edge & Dance, Beckwith, Detroit Swindle, Kevin Saunderson, Lee Foss, Ninetoes and Shadow Child kept the VIP Village alive throughout the day into the early night, making it pretty hard for us to leave.
As hours flew, the sun came down and we’d realised that we had actually been in the VIP Village the whole time, so we dash off to catch a different vibe. This ended with us being in the Hospitality Tent. We’ve always been a big fan of Hospital Records but since this House wave we nearly forgot about them. We Are Festival made sure we weren’t forgetting a thing and cranked up the tempo with Drum and Bass duo Camo and Krooked finishing up the DnB tent with pure bass sending the whole dance into one complete hype like we were 16 again.
Hospitality Tent included artist such as High Contrast, Friction, Shy FX, London Electricity, Fred V and Grafix, Danny Bryd, Spy, Metrik, Nu-Tone, Logisitics, Etherwood.
Hands down to We are Festival, with an easily accessible location for London and surrounding areas via Upminster station (with free coaches laid on by the festival to and from site) in addition to a veritable who’s who of house music, We Are Festival appear to have a very bright future ahead of them and we wish them all the best for next year.
Acts we wished we saw – (we blame MK’s VIP Village) Included – Richie Hawtin, Fatboy Slim, Disclosure, Annie Mac, Maribou State, Knife Party, Duke Dumont, Eddie Halliwell, Maya Jane Coles, The Martinez Brothers, Hot Since 82, Ricardo Villalobos, Apollonia, Luciano, Jamie Jones, Andy C, Friction, Sub Focus, Shy FX, Kenny Dope and Levon Vincent.
