Any future plans to work together?
Elliot: Since Daytimers and Big Dyke Energy work so well together, I am sure we will be working together on something real soon. Being constantly inspired by each other really helps as well as we will always find ways to help our community.
Individually what have you got coming up that you’d like to shout about?
Amad: Hopefully a bit of rest and reflection, I really want to celebrate this compilation and share it with everyone I know. Daytimers have a great event we’re a part of called the Samosa Sisterhood at Jikoni to help women and children who are victims of domestic violence with no recourse to public funds.
As the year dies down, I will be working less on Daytimers stuff and focusing on projects for my own creative studio. Amad.studio in London. I pride myself in starting this studio and creating work that goes against the grain, creating work that stands out as well as with a message of community.
Elliott: I’m one half of FAFF and we released our debut EP ‘The Last Piglette’ a few months ago.
And Melo (BDE’s founder) and I are gearing up for our next party at Venue M.O.T. on December 10th. It’s gonna be a banger so get your tickets whilst you can.
Riva: Working on a number of Daytimers projects as the year comes to an end, including the Jikoni event Amad has mentioned as well as other community based ones for the New Year. It is an exciting time because I feel we can really impact change in a lot of ways.
