Spotlight On Another Batch

Last Week I Purchased My First Ever ‘Another Batch’ Piece – This Was Long Over Due…

I Thought I Should Dive Into The Brain Of The Mother & Father Of The Up And Coming Brand!

Spot Light On… Another Batch

FD (Felix Dean): So, We’re Here To Talk About Another Batch – How Did It All Begin? And What Inspired You?

AB (Another Batch, Chuck & Lucy): Whats Up!
Well.. We grew up listening to hip-hop, Loving it and being inspired by it.
We had such a connection to certain songs from artists like: A Tribe Called Quest, Common,
Badu & so on.
It wasn’t until years later that we discovered J Dilla had produced most of our favourite tracks.
After realising that, we went through Dillas whole catalogue.

Fast forward to 2010, we attended a Dilla charity event and loved every second.
The music was perfect, the vibe amazing & everyone in the crowd had the same love for Dilla.
We were so moved we wanted to commemorate him through something.

We decided on the name ‘Another Batch’ as it was the name of one of his albums.

 

FD: Dope Dope Dope, Long Term Goal For AB?

AB: Our long term goal is for us to sell in niche shops worldwide, still doing our limited edition batches.
We’d also love to raise more money for the J Dilla Foundation, perhaps even being a partner.

 

FD: Enough Talking, Let’s See Your Products – And What Are Your Favourite Pieces?

AB: Ohhh.. That’s a hard one.
One of our favourites would have to be the first tribute garment we did for Dilla,
in doing so we met his Mother Ma Dukes & Joy the mother of his child.
They blessed us personally which cemented Another Batch.

J Dilla – Another Batch Tribute T-Shirt

More recently we have been experimenting with fabric applique.
Our first venture with applique was the Galileo T-Shirt, everything from the quality of the print to the photo shoot was PERFECT.
That is my favourite so far.

Galileo – Another Batch T-Shirt

Lucy’s favourite is the Hound T-shirt, she loves the minimalistic style & fell in love with the fabric the first time she saw it.

 

FD: The Galileo Is My Favorite To Date Yo! So… Future Release, What Can We Look Forward To?

AB: We are going to be working on something big that requires a lot of attention to detail over the next couple of months.
So look forward to our release later this year.It’s going to be something new and different to what we’ve done before.

 

FD: New, I Like The Sound Of It – Keep Taking Those Big Strides Forward And You’ll Achieve All You Want I’m Sure – Where Can People Find Out More About AB, AND Purchase Their First Batch?

Much Love & Power
Chuck & Lucy
