Sleep D

PODCAST | 05.12.2019

#6: Sleep D

Sleep D and their label Butter Sessions are one of the main pillars of the current electronic scene in Melbourne.
In contrast to other producers and DJs coming from this beautiful city in Australia, Corey and Maryos didn’t leave town to settle in Europe. From the beginning they built their tight knit network, at first through a forum and later through their label.

They met with editor in-chief Martin at their studio in Carlton to talk about growing up in Frankston and going to underage clubs, forming Sleep D and their label Butter Sessions, the whole DIY approach and of course their new album, Rebel Force.

Cottweiler

PODCAST | 21.11.2019

#6: Cottweiler

Have you ever ditched the scheduled program of a school or university trip and decided to wander off with someone and explore the city by yourselves?
That’s basically how Ben and Matthew, the founders and designers of Cottweiler met.

They were both enrolled in Fashion Design course in Bristol, but it wasn’t until an excursion to the capital of France that they bonded over their similar taste in music and the general feeling of not wanting to follow anyone else’s rules.

A few years later they founded Cottweiler.

In May they met with The Wasted Hour editor-in-chief Martin to talk about that trip to Paris, combining sportswear and tailoring, winning the Woolmark Prize in 2017, the best party stories, and of course about their collection ’The lost art of cruising’ .

"For a long time I have been a firm believer in making photographs within the familiarity of your own world, seeking beauty within your common surroundings and not longing for something more: An idea which is creatively liberating yet generally grappled with by the majority."

Appetite/ Plastic Rebellion

by Alyssa Boehle

"We are always watching what others consume and what people have an appetite for. Whether it's sex, food, entertainment etc, knowing what other people value gives us an 'in'.
It opens a window into that other person, and it lets us answer their appetites – usually to get something in return. What I find most interesting is what we choose to be transparent about versus what we hide, what we feel comfortable selling versus what we do not, both as the consumer and observer."

"I find myself often worrying about the future and the uncertainties it carries, and I forget that there is a present that needs to be lived. I tend to force myself to make plans by default, to have everything quite organised and controlled.“

Since the first Savile Row suits in the early 1800s, Britain has been an influencer of menswear around the world.
Even today, London Men’s Fashion Week is place of inspiration for current trends on the streets and future trends on the runways.
Lou Dalton is a fixed part of the fashion show cycle. For the past ten years she has managed to seamlessly combine tradition and presence in her clothing designs.
Two days after her presentation for Spring/ Summer 2019, we met in her studio to talk about being inspired by the TV Show 'This is your life', her work experience, Fashion Week and, of course, menswear.

Lea Porcelain

Some albums come to you at the perfect moment. Last year, just when winter had arrived I was sitting on the train, travelling back to Hamburg after an emotional encounter. Staring out of the window and the already white landscape, Lea Porcelain’s debut album "Hymns to the night" caught me.
Their sound is the result of Markus’ strong and expressive voice and Julien’s beautiful soundscapes.

We met one sunny day at the Funkhaus in Berlin to talk about their first encounter at the Robert Johnson Club, the energy at the night, music in skate videos and of course their new song “I am Ok”.
