Freshly Laced is a Toddler...

I may be on a bit of a catch-up tip right here...

So its been a wicked few months since Freshly Laced was born.

We've had some awesome nights, sick music and incredible visuals and drawn folks from Ras Al Khiamah to Abu Dhabi in droves - getting their fix of the finest funk, afrobeat, brasilia and proper hiphop & being keen to build the scene and community with us.

The bboy workshops have been going strong at Shelter and we've had Web, Radio, Print and TV support for FL and its only gonna keep growing - bigups Andy @ DJ Mag, Mo and crew, Zahra Soar, Simone @ Discoballbreaker, Lubna and the CWrap crew, Pecha Kucha, Infusion & Time Out Massive, Analect and Nile Rhythmik (who even dropped a custom beat for us!!)
