You should definitely pick up a copy – for Yaeji, Snapped Ankles, Philipp Gorbachev, Eyedress and Goldie, too
Earlier this month Goldie revealed who Banksy was. Kinda. But not really. He casually referred to him as ‘Rob’ on Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Pieces podcast, which did nothing to quell the rumour that Banksy is Massive Attack’s 3D (Robert Del Naja), a guy who you’d presume Goldie knows pretty well.
Goldie doesn’t give up Banksy in our own interview with him this month’s issue (Loud And Quiet 87 is in stores July 1st), although at various salacious points he does say that there’s no God, “thank fuck for yoga” (he likes yoga a lot) and that Jeremy Corbyn is “a good lad, not like Ed Balls.”
Kalis Uchis doesn’t hold her tongue either, although her delivery is more in line with her polarised personality – a shy/tough 22-year-old from Colombia who, inspired by fellow straight-talking female singers like Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, finds herself in LA’s young hip-hop scene, questioning just how big she wants to become. She’s well aware how ridiculous fame is – the thing is, she’s already very good at it.
South Korean-American house musician and visual artist Yaeji welcomed us into her Brooklyn studio; underground Moscow DJ and producer Philipp Gorbachev discusses forming a live band and the raids on his parties that have led to him living in Berlin; Snapped Ankles explain how they’ve made logs into synthesiser; and finally – finally – we pinned down Manilla’s Eyedress, “your indie Kanye.”
We’ve also got a special Loud And Quiet Guide to End of The Road, which features, among other things, a guest Agony Uncle column from Alex Cameron, putting to rest all your festival fears.

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 our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and 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 works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.
If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.
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.
