Premiere: Cheriii – DRAMATOLOGY


Either side of the dinner table they sat in silence, moving their food slowly around their plates.

Dalston Superstore residents Super Drama kickstart their new label with a series of three V/A EPs celebrating the artists central to East London’s queer scene, with a few international friends thrown in for good measure.
