VRS is a quarterly, UK based magazine for and about designers and musicians. The magazine pushes innovative, inspiring and creative work from upcoming, as well as established designers and musicians. VRS takes a retrospective look at both scenes, making it our goal to expand the readers knowledge and tastes.
Autumn’s kinda like Nicki Minaj. Kinda beautiful, but also absolutely shit. We here at VRS have had a bit of a reshuffle, and are moving towards greener pastures (so many potential seasonal puns), hopefully in the form of a print run for you guys in the not too distant future.
Anyway VRS family, we’ve got another issue full of content for you to sink your slightly frostbitten jaw into. We’re happy to introduce two new writers into the collective, Dan and Robbie, who will be putting pen to paper to perturb and pleasure you all; their first pieces are a great interview with the world famous Peanut Butter Wolf and an exquisite review of Earl’s debut album ‘Doris’ respectively.
In addition to this we’ve spoken to the vibrant Owuor Arunga from Macklemore’s camp about what it’s like to be propelled into the lime light, pitted up the dashing Q-Tip and Ab-Soul against one another to see who comes out on top, listened to a ton of albums and pensively questioned a bunch of great artwork.
Freddie Gibbs finally gets the respect he deserves in a piece discussing the place of gangsta rap, Konrad lays down the knowledge with 10 things your degree never taught you, Rich Davies spurts artistic and life-guiding wonder into your eagerly awaiting eyes and Mayday puts down The Noose for a slightly more upbeat interview.
We hope you enjoy the issue, enjoyed the website and are enjoying our attempts at providing you our favourite parts of the wonderful spheres we dip our toes into.
