Black Map Friday

Two years ago to the week we launched the New York Music Map.  A collaboration with long time KC friend/writer Frank Broughton (DJ History, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life) and illustrator Adam Hayes, we set out to visually represent one of our favourite cities in the form of a typographical map comprising some 450+ NY musicians from the past few decades.

After much head-scratching and conferring, we arrived at the final list.  Although by no means exhaustive, we hoped the map would provide some stimulation for music aficionados, map nerds and New York-o-philes like us.  It also makes for the perfect Christmas gift for that music lover in your life (even if that’s you).

The first edition was so popular we decided to run a second, this time on 270gsm black paper.  Each poster is screen-printed by hand by Jealous, Shoreditch and individually numbered.
