‘Rinse Presents: A Visual Retrospective’ opens at The Old Truman Brewery

Posted at 7:00 am, August 16, 2011 in Music & Nightlife

Rinse FM exhibitionLondon’s legendary pirate-turned-legal radio station, helmed by DJ-turned-producer Geeneus, celebrates its unique legacy with an exhibition of its interesting visual history at The Old Truman Brewery this week (to August 22). Best known for launching the careers of Wiley, Dizzee Rascal and Katy B, plus a blinding array of the UK’s best current club DJ hosts, Rinse FM is also defined by its striking artwork by photographer Shaun Bloodworth and graphic designers Give Up Art. Its moody black and white compilation CD covers and party flyers are immediately recognisable, as are those for the station’s club night FWD>> and record label Tempa, both started by Sarah ‘Soulja’ Lockhart. Lockhart tells Time Out that the exhibition is just the beginning of their foray into the art world and sets the tone for ‘something much bigger’ that will be a ‘bit more music genre-related as well’. The exhibition coincides with FWD>>’s 10th birthday next Saturday, while Rinse FM will celebrate its 17th birthday at Brixton Academy on September 17.

For info, see rinse.fm and FWD>> 10th Birthday listing; read the full interview with Sarah Lockhart in this week’s issue of Time Out, out tomorrow.
