Famous faces from the world of Drum and Bass and Jungle, such as Roni Size, Goldie, Fabio & Groove Rider form the centrepiece of British artist Charlotte Archer’s first-ever solo portrait exhibition, ‘Sound System Culture 001’, taking place on the 12th December 2019.
Charlotte will showcase a selection of her oil and acrylic portraits of Jungle and Drum and Bass artists. The exhibition will take place on the site of the former record shop, the iconic Black Market Records, in Soho.
Adding to the hall of fame will be some of the pioneers of the scene – Goldie, Darren Jay, Micky Finn, Ray Keith, Stevie Hyper D, Nicky Blackmarket, Jumping Jack Frost and Bryan Gee. LTJ Bukem will also feature as well as Randall and Andy C, Kenny Ken, Brockie & DET and MCGQ.
Once the hub of the London club scene, D’Arblay Street’s Black Market Records (now Cut & Grind Barbershop) will form the backdrop for Charlotte Archer’s impressive depiction of a collection of world-class DJs from 7pm on Thursday 12th December 2019. A building that will forever be synonymous with Drum and Bass and jungle, it will relive its musical glory days for one night only.
All pieces in the collection will be available to purchase on the night. Fifteen per cent of all proceeds will be donated to Denny’s Fund, a fundraising initiative for Jumping Jack Frost’ 6-year-old nephew Denny who suffers from ALL Leukemia. Sadly, Denny’s recent stem cell transplant hasn’t cured his cancer, meaning that he urgently needs further costly treatment in the US that the NHS cannot fund. Please see the GoFundMe donation page
