During the late 80s and early 90s one record label that helped form the house and balearic scene we have today...
was Boy's Own. With a fanzine and their one-off parties, they influenced a whole generation of todays best UK djs
and producers. One of the main underlying reasons for their success was the focus also on visuals, with the help
of Dave Little. At the time I was also getting into the music and scene and remember how his graphics stuck out
in a unique and quirky way. Most other graphics were trying to go for modern typography and a tech feel, which
made his (mostly) hand dawn style really stand out.

Now comes a great collaboration, where over the course of 2009 top Berlin fashion store Firmament will be releasing
several T-shirts using Dave Little's designs, plus they have had full use of the Fanzine archive, so expect some 
really great prints. There will also be some Boy's Own parties, and exhibitions, - All the DJs who played and
attended the parties are all onboard, so it should make for some fantastic events. The T-shirts will be released in late
January / early February, with a free Boy's Own mix done exclusively by Soft Rocks, nice!

This how collaborations should be, from the heart and not hype or money driven. See more Dave Little classic designs below...
