Last Days for the Grand Boucle Exhibition in London

post2_grandeOriginally created at Urban Spree Galerie in July 2012 by Christoph Reichert (chipsnchampagne) and Urban Spree’s resident screenprinter Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker), the Grand Boucle exhibition then travelled to Budapest in April 2013 in an enhanced format and finally hit the UK race tracks in May at Shoreditch’s Kemistry Gallery

Conceived as a critical and visual narrative of vintage and contemporary bike design, Grand Boucle displays a selection of new and vintage bicycles, bespoke saddles as well as  the ‘Grand Boucle’ magazine. Complimenting it is a silk screen printed testimonial to bicycle related design & photography, such as vintage head-badge posters & postcards as well as photographical large scale prints.

Grand Boucle is on until June 1st, 2013.



“THIS!”: 3rd Print in the Mode 2 “Lockdown” Series

“Straight outta Lockdown / The Freedom Prints” is a series of vintage Mode 2 prints (from the mid 2000s to the early 2010s), hand-painted or hand-sprayed in 2020, and re-numbered in very limited runs.

“THIS!” is the third release of the series and by far the oldest print, having been published in 2003 by PoW in London.

Based on a flyer for the “THIS!” parties at Bar Rumba initially drawn in Mode 2’s blackbook, the motive was digitally printed in quadtone and has been hand-sprayed by Mode 2 in June 2020 with 3 matching tones of Belton.

The final run of this new series amounts to 24 prints only, signed and numbered.

“THIS!” 68cm X 45cm One of three series of vintage prints, a full colour digital print, customised and renumbered edition of 24. . I met @swifty_grafix with @robiwalters a show at the Blue Note club in London, December 1996. He had @kambhogal_  and @freddeak.in working with them up in Ladbroke Grove, at #studiobabylon . They plugged me in to a part of the London club scene, connected to labels like Talking Loud or to (Straight No) Chaser magazine and so on. . @mitchy_bwoy joined springtime 1997, running the London club flyer scene; from Jah Shaka, to Passenger, or Movement at Bar Rumba itself among many others. . Discovering “That's How It Is” at Bar Rumba was love at first sight. In 1993, @janinedingwalls and @gillespeterson were offered a night at a West End venue, and Gilles suggested Mondays, a clean break from the weekend crowd. He suggested to have @unkleofficial join him, while @beesayed backed Janine up on all her club sessions. @ben_wilcox99 later joined the team, and then there were also illustrious guests. . My blackbook drawing (photos by @louis_curiosities ) shows the parachute on the ceiling, hiding the @funktiononeofficial speakers delivering an eclectic serving of music that attracted the faithful from the world over. . I did a few banners over the years (the one at the door getting stolen!), with paint reacting to black light, but the drawing was first used in 1999, when the name switched to “THIS!”; and from it came a bunch of other drawings of club scenes and dancing crowds. . When @stevelazarides asked me to join PYMCA in 2003, the flyer became one of four prints I did for him. I rescued what I could carry of all remaining ones from Pictures On Walls in October 2018, then decided during the lockdown that we should re-release them; not without enhancing each one with matching Belton colours from @legacybln , and transforming them into something much more personalised. . “Sofa Spank”, “Oh Sh…” and “THIS!” go on sale at @urban_spree this Thursday 9th of July at 18:00 CET. Link in bio. . That's it. There will be no more left stashed away after that. . #mode2official #mode2 #londonnights #clubnights #vintageprint #customised #straightnochaser

Mode2 and Urban Spree release “Never Too Late…”

10 years after its publication, we are happy to re-release the second edition of Mode2’s legendary book “Never Too Late…” in 2 different editions.

The book will be released exclusively on the Urban Spree webshop here on Friday April 3rd at 18:00 CET (Berlin time).

Originally published in 2008 in a 64-page hardcover version, the book sold out instantly. A second, revised softcover edition of 80 pages was commissioned in the wake but was never properly released.

Since it’s “Never Too Late…”, we are finally releasing the book for its 10th Anniversary Year.

To celebrate the return of the prodigal book, in addition to the regular trade edition, Mode2 has designed a Special Edition of 100 copies. Each of the 100 book covers has been spray-painted and each copy is signed and numbered.

Numbers 001-050 come with a screen-printed tee-shirt of the cover’s motive, printed in-house at Urban Spree (Earth Positive brand, organic, fair trade cotton) while numbers 051-100 will be only the signed and numbered edition of the book.

Thumper – Berlin, Urban Spree

Support: Zörf

THUMPER come from Dublin and make fast-paced noise pop. The very young sextet started the year 2019 with a series of three singles “(You’re Bringing Me) Down”, “In My Room” and “AFL”, which were played up and down on British rock radio. This was followed in May by their first EP “Out of Body Auto-Message”, a festival tour that culminated in an ecstatic performance at the Primavera in Barcelona, and an acclaimed UK tour with sold-out shows in London, Bristol and of course their hometown Dublin. Now the band are working very hard on their debut record, which they plan to present on their tour in spring 2020. read more >> fkpscorpio.com/en/bands-archive/thumper

Brass Ya Ass ! /w Dat Brass * Swing * Balkan Beats * Hip Hop *

Es wird wild, es wird laut und für einen ganz besonderen Tag, verwandelt der Elfenstaub aus Kreuzberg, das Yaam in eine bunte Spielwiese aus Jazz, Hip Hop, Swing und Balkan Beats.

:: LIVE ::

Dat Brass ( London / UK )

:: DJS ::

Karacho Rabaukin ( Club Balkanska )
Cup Of Jazz

** Jazz ** Hip Hop ** Swing ** Balkan Beats **

Dass ihr so schnell nicht ausser Puste kommt, dafür sorgen die Brass Punker aus London: Dat Brass ! Die 10 köpfige Brass Band wirbelt gerade den insulanischen Untergrund komplett nach links, und ist in aller Munde. Schillernde Hörner, treffen auf Pauken,Trompeten und messerscharfe Scratches und Rapeinlagen.

Für den allerletzten Zweifler, haben wir noch ein absolutes Dj Superduper Tag Team verpflichtet. Karacho Rabaukin & Cup Of Jazz konnten wir schnell davon überzeugen, bei diesem leicht übertriebenen Partymassaka beizuwohnen.

Am besten ihr nehmt Euch am nächsten Tag nix vor, denn dieser Abend könnte Euch alles abverlangen. Risiken und Nebenwirkungen außen vor, das wird ein Abend, den ihr hoffentlich am nächsten Tag komplett vergessen haben werdet.
