Manchester based media collective Example Media, responsible for Example Magazine, have launched a brand new clothing imprint aiming to support and promote upcoming and underground designer talent both from Manchester and the United Kingdom.

To kick thing's off Example Media founder James Mernagh has designed a simple yet striking piece entitled "Making An Example" available now in 3 colourways exclusively from the Example Clothing online shop.

In the coming months Example Magazine will begin to feature young designers / artists who will then be commissioned to design one or more T-Shirt designs for the Example Clothing range.

Each designer involved in the project will receive payment and extensive coverage online as a part of the Example Media collective.

Skittles - Back with Another Banger

Following up from the success of the free download taster EP entitled "prE.P" featured earlier on this here blog, Manchester lyricist Skittles is back with another banger in April 2011. The new single "Tip-i-cal-ly", out on April 11th, is taken from the forthcoming album "Poor with £100 Trainers" which is set for release later this year on MC DRS' (Broke 'n' £nglish, Soul:ution) Manchester based imprint Estate Recordings.

"Tip-i-cal-ly" is 4 minutes of pure dubbed out bounciness with a ton of Skittles' trademark wordplay to knock your socks off and a bag of remixes to make sure that they stay off.

We featured the Dom Hz remix on here but now theres 3 other cuts for you to enjoy, including another dubstep shake-up by Chimpo and the track is also given the D&B treatment by Rowney and Propz.
