Eric Thorp (FAD) x Folkestone
Eric graduated from Camberwell College of Art more than a decade ago. First working the gallery and exhibition scene, before becoming a freelance journalist contributing to pioneering titles such as Clash and Leisure – finding his happy resting place at the euphonious FAD. From a young age he has been immersed in hip-hop culture and his record collection today still reflects his love for a beat with a harder edge.
Eric’s 120 From® ‘In Transit’ selection down to Folkestone should really come with a parental advisory warning. Hopscotch through the London congestion with a riotous half-hour long blast of snares and hi-hats from the likes of DJ Rashad, the Ragga Twins and Shut Up and Dance. And as the road opens up and the 50mph limit of the A2 becomes but a distant memory, head nod to Casual and Heralds of Change – before slipping into classics from Makers, Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot. The depth of Eric’s playlist is one to be admired.
