Straight No Chaser / #SNC98 / 2017

Right Now this planet is a scary and totally deranged place and cultural activism is high on the #SNC98 agenda. A decade has slipped by since our last issue and our aim with #SNC98 – like its predecessors – is to roam far and wide. In this 130 page magazine we talk to Néríja, Shabaka Hutchings, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Ifé, Collocutor, Jaimeo Brown, Church Of Sound and Elza Soares, amongst others. We check out Analog Africa’s Samy Ben Redjeb and Rhythm Section Int.’s Bradley Zero.
Our scribes visit ‘The Blacksonian’ in DC, Tate Modern in London and a Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We view documentary films on James Baldwin, Lee Morgan and Mo’ Wax and scan books by Greg Tate, Penny Reel and Walter Mosley. #SNC98 is a tactile, crafted, knowledgeable reflection of the times that’s imbued with enthusiasm and the spirit of improvisation. It’s dedicated to Interplanetary Sounds: Ancient To Future. And finally, if you’re placing an order then we wish you “Welcome” or alternatively, “Welcome back!”
