This weekend the 1Xtra and Mobo approved Silvastone is headlining the all-star A'friquency launch party, showcasing the finest contemporary music coming out of Africa and the Diaspora. We spoke to the DJ, producer and vocalist extraordinaire to find out what we can expect from his set and the future.
Hi Silvastone, thanks for joining us. How’s your summer been so far?
My summer has been blessed thanks. Mainly long studio hours finishing up my new forthcoming EP.
Director Pedro Almodóvar returns with Julieta this week, a film based on short stories by Alice Munro.
How well do you know your Almodóvar films? Take a look at our quiz below and see if you can name all the films by the Spanish auteur the images are taken from.
Theatre Collective Acrylick came to Rich Mix earlier this year as part of our Radical Ideas season with their debut show Jagged Edge, an immersive and multi-media vision of future East London. Not only did they sell out their show (requiring three extra rows of seating to fit everyone) but they also sold loads of tickets well in advance, an impressive feat for any emerging theatre company.

London is full of artist success stories. But for every artist who does get to the point of performance or exhibition, there are many who are sadly forced to abandon their big idea.
As an arts charity, it’s an honour to be able to support emerging artists by giving them something that can be scarce in London – space. We hope that by giving artists a space where they can grow their work and a stage on which to perform it, we also give them the confidence to keep going with their creative projects.

And yet the staff here at Rich Mix apparently can’t get enough. From backstreet pubs to the Royal Festival Hall, we get around. And (proving we’re not totally London-centric) this year’s ‘staff picks’ list even includes a couple from beyond Zone 5. Here’s what we loved, here and elsewhere, in 2015:
