"Sometimes with a project you need to reset to make sure your perspective hasn’t shifted too much from the initial vision, aim and ethos. It’s easy to lose sight of what you wanted to achieve with something as it grows and mutates. Destroying something and allowing it to be reborn can reinvigorate not only what you’re working on, but your state of mind."
Issue 004 is about Rebirth, in a variety of forms. Nancy Whang discusses the resurrection of her band LCD Soundsystem, photographers Rich Gilligan and Brian Cross outline risking it all to move from Ireland to America, artists MØ and Shamir reveal how they never truly left their punk roots, renowned emcee Talib Kweli speaks about how he still represents the oppressed from his now elevated position and IDK, a rapper who is on the precipice of greatness, explains why one material possession symbolically means a great deal more.
Karl Melinn frankly discusses his suicide attempt and the days and months which followed, plus a selection of people who stared death directly in the eyes explain what it’s like to almost exit this world and how their lives were altered from the experience.
