Digbeth is a post-industrial area that looks exactly like the one I was raised near Paris, deserted brick warehouses where people like Pecker, Spector & Jake have established a long time tradition of underground jamaïcan sound-systems in the abandoned premises.

Today the venue is aboveground and standing as a crucial cultures mix place. Tessa took care that me and local graffiti artist HOAKSER respected the colour scheme of red, green and gold requested by PST for its jamaïcan roots. Tho we hardly have planned any sketch before, we just got along on the wall in the proper graffiti style of improvisation, HOAKSER representing the Drum'n'Bass/Jungle stuff when I opted for the Two-Tone inspired checkered loafers and speakers.
