BALOJI x DAMON ALBARN x KNOTORYUS

Tonight, at 23.30 my bud, the incredible Baloji will take the stage at Glastonbury. He was invited by Glasto headliner Damon Albarn to join his project Africa Express. He will be performing with Dizzee Rascal, Baaba Maal & Manu Dibango.

The above picture is of a KNOTORYUS styled shoot…

Which I am extremely proud of.

That’s right. Here at KNOTORYUS we mix the bizz with the pleash.

Or let me rephrase that. When you love the people you’re working with, it’s called a collab.

I asked the wonderful Kris Van Assche if we could pull some of his looks.

He said yes.

The fab -and now london based hair master- Marino Scissorhand Lambrix is responsible for this perfectly executed coiff. My over-the-phone instructions : “a mullet without the neckdrizzle. Think mini ski-slope. Allez-y!”

(btw : One of the five things I would love to be remembered by : “She who got to mess with Baloji’s signature do”)

Before all you chicks start yelling at me. I know he looked good in his corn rows too. But come on.

If you’re at Glasto do two things :

1. Go check out Africa Express : I’m currently pumping Baloji‘s unreleased remixes. Believe me, you’ll have a blast.

(those who can’t make it : let’s meet up in Paris August 5th.)

2. Try & spot @Dizzy Blazeberg. I’m guessing he’s the most fun to hang with this year. Take him to see Baloji. Show us what you learned in your African contemporary dance class.

Hey B, bring me a signed Damon Albarn shirt.

And a pic of you and the two Dizzee’s.
