Thank you to everyone that tuned in over the weekend for Sofasonic Festival, as part of our extended Sofasonic celebrations we’re releasing an array of playlists on Spotify that have been carefully curated by artists & friends of the festival for your listening pleasure.

Sofasonic Playlists: Radwan MoumnehMark Titchner | QUEEF | Gazelle TwinMatt RidoutKhyam Allami | Molly & MabelDecolonise Fest | Rocket Recordings | Mike Nelson | Faten Kanaan | Iggor Cavalera | Valentina Magaletti | Sex Swing | Mariano Sarine | Sofa King | Ben Sadler | Rosie Tee | Elle Donlon | Natalie Sharp | Matters |

 

This week’s playlist is courtesy of Birmingham-raised artist & illustrator, Bunny Bissoux. From many a pop-up stall at Supersonic’s Market Place to designing our popular Home of Metal tea-towels – Bunny is well versed in Capsule collaborations. Their distinctive and enticing designs are truly a sight to behold. 

 

Currently based in Tokyo, Japan, Bunny’s work is heavily inspired by popular culture and fanaticism, with recurring themes including music, teen angst, pro wrestling, animals and idols. They have made many collaborations with Capsule over the years – you may have spotted them at Supersonic 2009, 2010 or 2012 where they graced the festival Market Place with their prints, zines, badges and stickers in addition to vintage trading cards, cult memorabilia and treasures from Japan.

 

 

“My playlist is a somewhat demented mix of genres, languages and eras but with the uniting threads of romance, frustrated desire and rhythms that are just enough to keep me moving forward, step by step.”
Take a listen here…

 

“It’s been an honour to have been involved in Supersonic in so many ways over the years from t-shirt designs to workshops and exhibitions.
The memories are all somewhat blurred but for whatever reason 2012 comes to mind, a vivid memory of racing from my marketplace shackles just in time to catch Justice Yeldham go wild on a pane of glass in the Old Library, having been sat at a table with him for the magnificent Sonic Feast a few days before.
When a pandemic isn’t keeping me from getting back across an ocean i’ll be looking forward to many more Supersonic memories to come!”
