DJ Patrick Forge shows us how to walk the canopy


The Kentish Town-based musician has chosen a classic location for his new press shots. And, even better, you can download a remix of his new single for nada

Music journalist Tom Horan dropped us a line today to alert our attention to local “ledge” Patrick Forge (right) striding across a rather familiar looking bridge.

Why? It’s a press shot used to accompany Forge’s band Da Lata’s new single Um Amor A Mais, as reviewed in massive US dance title XLR8R.

Da Lata (meaning “from the tin” in Portuguese) formed back in ’94 (the other guy is Chris Franck), and they combine Afro-Brazilian influences with other musical strands. Their essential album was Songs From The Tin, released in 2000.

So is this pic one of a set of K-Town images? We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime you can download an Afro house remix by Prophets of the South, a production duo from Glasgow via Cape Town for free here.

Let’s just hope those smirking boys haven’t bypassed Bean About Town for a brew at – gasp! – Costa Coffee down the road.

This is box title
Da Lata’s latest LP Fabiola is out on October 21. More info here
