Evocative, educative and all-out: since 2011 the London based radio station NTS serves the online community with a diverse range of live radio shows featuring all sorts of music. Since long Carhartt WIP supports the broadcasters without blinkers, that emerged due to their radical but highly emotional program to one of the globally most acclaimed new radio stations. Their magic is so magnetic that even DJ stars like Jeff Mills, Andrew Weatherall, Trevor Jackson, Jamie xx or Four Tet rush up to the multicultural district of Dalston to play a free of charge show at the tiny NTS broadcasting studio located at Gillett street in-front of a square where locals play chess, eat their chicken jerky and watch their children playing.
Since 2015 NTS and Carhartt WIP strengthen their relationship and join forces for another unique mission: the NTS x Carhartt WIP Radio tour – an intensive musical journey that travelled through Europe and stopped in selected cities in France, Spain, UK, Switzerland, Italy and Germany. At each stop we installed a special custom-built booth that looks like the original NTS radio booth in London. During the stop young and fresh local heroes played together with some demanded artists from around the globe like Gerd Janson, GE-OLOGY, Low Jack, Volcov, Moxie, Kutmah, Ruf Dug or Shanti Celeste.
After dancing and grooving in London and around Europe, Carhartt WIP and NTS manifest their friendship again a bit deeper and launch a special collection designed by NTS's very own design team. They toyed around with sassy colors like Flower or Lagoon and created contemporary eye-catcher motives that cover t-shirts, longsleeves and a logo pocket shirt. The launch will be accompanied by a few special videos that play with the items.
The collection launch will get support by more Carhartt WIP x NTS Radio tour dates in Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. Detailed information on all tour stops soon at this place.
