size? sessions x Nike at our Carnaby Street Store – an interview with Teezee
To celebrate the release of the cult classic Nike Air Max BW silhouette, we decided to team up with the brand to host a size? sessions. Being a silhouette that was favoured amongst London's iconic grime scene, we thought that our size? Carnaby Street Store would be the fitting venue to host this event. For this size?sessions, we wanted to combine the nostalgia of the OG Nike Air Max BW with an impressive roster of rising musicians. So, without further ado, let us introduce the artists included in this event...
Hailing from Lagos, and often present in London, Teezee is an artist making some serious moves. A new figurehead in representing the musical and cultural synergy between Nigeria and the UK, Teezee is on the cusp of releasing his super-hyped debut, including features with the likes of BackRoad Gee, Lancey Foux, Santi, Pa Salieu and more. What’s more, Teezee recently featured on Skepta’s latest track ‘Peace of Mind’ – a grail-like mark of respect for a rising artist, especially for one that openly nods to BBK for inspiration. We are super excited to get this artist on the roster for our size? Carnaby street show – we don’t speak lightly when we say this is an unmissable set.
New World Ray
A quickly rising star, New World Ray hails from London’s rich music scene, offering a unique sound that is certain to gain traction around the globe. His latest summer release with Uglymoss – ‘Yingani’ – shows his sound is evolving into something massive, showcasing a rich combination of vibrant beats, hypnotic melodies and fearless expression. With a slew of other releases in 2021, the artist is making a statement that he is here to stay and take over the scene. With this in mind, it was a privilege to invite him down to size? Carnaby Street for a massive set – we can’t wait to show you.
Vivendii – a name inspired by the Latin for ‘our way of life’ – is a collective hailing from London and Lagos, consisting of Jimmy Ayeni, Ola Badiru and Anthony Oye. Hailed as a punk fashion collective, this collective started out as a blog, while they produce Y2K-inspired clothing and make music and DJ under the alias – Vivendii Sound. Intending to represent the youth of Nigeria – on a global scale – Vivendii is rising fast across multiple creative platforms. Arriving on the size?sessions Carnaby Street Roster under their musical alias, Vivendii’s set is not one to miss – watch soon.
