CRAVE hang out with Balistiq in Brick Lane to soak up the vibes and the beats celebrating the launch of their new EP ‘Louder’.
B-Side By Wale on Hanbury Street on a Thursday night has never looked so busy. The tiny but perfectly formed interior of the store is filled with a sea of people, and in between sets we even manage to check out some of the clothes which provide the perfect backdrop; both producers are keen sartorialists themselves with plans to grow Balistiq into a lifestyle brand in the not too distant future.
But it seems like the boys are doing plenty already and given the sheer unadulterated hype around the release of Balistiq’s first EP Louder, some time in the making, unsurprisingly there’s a buzz that spills over into the crowd on the pavement still waiting to carve out a spot near the decks.
This may well be just a glimpse of much bigger things to come for the duo who have already worked with the likes of Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Wiley and Kano to name a few, but we could keep going! The list is surely set to grow.
