Listening Post

Even if your day’s been… like… totally chill, you should listen to ‘Calm FM’ from London dub trio Lifestyle

Mellow hype

In the current edition of Loud And Quiet (June 2017) David Zammitt met with South London dub trio Lifestyle.

Things are moving fast for Lewis Rainsbury, Luke Brennan and new, third member Adrian.

They told David about their mellow debut mixtape, noting that it’s already out of date. At that point, ‘Calm FM’ wasn’t even out, and the guys were already keen to move on. The group have posted it online today though, so for those that read the feature, you can now hear what we heard in it, and last month’s £45 single ‘DLR’.

“I’m actually over nostalgia now,” says Rainsbury. “You can’t dabble for too long. You need to move on as a human.”

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
