We’re well into October now and we’re definitely starting to feel the cold, so we’re hoping that this month’s first #SuperdrySounds mix will warm you up. With strong house vibes and some mellow beats filling this playlist, you’ll definitely be listening to this for the rest of autumn!

So first off we have a warm, upbeat house remix of rising Brit star Elderbrook’s track, ‘How Many Times’. Andhim is a Cologne/Berlin based duo known for their amazing remixes. They recently had a go at Groove Armada’s ‘Paris’ and are consistently releasing epic floor fillers. With most of the major electronic festivals ticked off their list already, they still have 13 upcoming shows across the globe, so plenty of chances to catch them live if you like what you hear.

Bob Moses is next on our mix and they have 25 tour dates coming up, so there’s plenty of opportunities to catch them live before they hit the mainstream. They’re the new boys on the block and hail from Canada, although they were originally raised in New York.  Last year saw their big hit ‘All I Want’, and they have since released their debut album with Domino records. It’s been given raving reviews across the board and they have been dubbed as the rising stars of electronic music. Your EDM said: “Bob Moses deliver one of the strongest albums of the year”.

Louis The Child, a duo from Chicago, has picked up 2.1 million SoundCloud plays in just under a month with track, ‘It’s Strange’. Definitely one of the songs of the moment, it was given a recent boost in popularity with recent support from Taylor Swift; with her posting an Instagram pic of ‘New Songs That Will Make Your Life More Awesome’ and including this tune. We featured their remix of Kaskae’s ‘Never Sleep Alone’ back in July’s Volume 2 and they’ve since produced loads of hits. Check out their SoundCloud for more goodness (including their remix of British duo Oh Wonder’s ‘Body Gold’).

Finally, we’ve included Loxe, an emerging London-based producer with one recently released solo under his belt. He’s produced for the likes of Bo Rocha, Alxndr London and was behind Nao’s ‘Apple Cherry’ that we featured back in our May Volume 2 playlist – this track was labelled as Vice’s music division ‘Noisey’ as ‘one of the best tracks of 2015 so far’. There’s not much more known about Loxe yet but he’s definitely one to keep your eyes on.

This year, for a variety of reasons, I didn’t make it to a single festival so far – shame on me. Fortunately, I was invited by Superdry to the last and undoubtedly the most exciting festival of the season – The Lollapalooza in Berlin.

It is a festival that is not set to a specific location, but takes place in a different city every year. An amazing line-up, fresh and delicious vegan food from food trucks and the unique atmosphere of the former Tempelhof Airport attracted countless visitors to the festival. Fun fact: approximately 80% of the visitors of every Lollapalooza are from the UK.

After a little refreshment with burgers and sweet potato crisps, I joined the amazing party and danced to James Bay (what an amazing kind of guy!), sang along to the sound of Bastille and rocked out to Deichkind. These three bands were definitely my greatest favourites!

When the sun set behind the Tempelhof-area and everything was wrapped in a warm and golden light in the evening, I think barely a single person wanted to be in a different place than this one.

This week, we’re saying goodbye to those big summer tunes and hello to our first autumn #SuperdrySounds mega mix; who says you have to wind down for the winter months? We certainly aren’t, so here are our top up and coming sounds that you’ll be hearing this season.

First up, Thundercat – and no, we don’t mean the kids cartoon from the 80s! Born and raised in L.A., this ‘go-to’ bassist has been featured in an incredibly wide spectrum of music. From Erykah Badu to Flying Lotus, his eclectic style has well and truly become part of the global music scene. His latest album, released earlier this year on the well-known label Brainfeeder, received super impressive reviews across the board – sorry we didn’t bring this one too you sooner!

This next track has come from an enormous amount of time spent in the studio, but wow isn’t it a cracker! We first spotted singer Kelela on her Cut 4 Me mixtape released on Fade to Mind in 2013, which featured some awesome production from the likes of Bok Bok, Nguzungzu and Kingdom, so naturally we are super excited to see the latest from her. This D.C./L.A. based musical genius has been back working hard in the studio and has uploaded this pre-released track, ‘Rewind’ featuring production from Kingdom & Nugget. The track is being released on mammoth label, Warp Records on October 9th.

As you know, we’re champions for emerging talent, so this new band on the block is definitely on our radar. Clean Cut Kid – which includes some mega talent from the likes of Mike & Evelyn Halls, Saul Goodman and Ross Higginson – has been hitting the festival scene hard this summer so you might have already sampled their indie/rock magic. Playing at the likes of Latitude and Secret Garden Party, Clean Cut Kid has been among some really good company on the stage having also supporting Shura. Radio 1 has been behind them all the way, featuring the band on the BBC Introducing stages at Reading & Leeds.

Finally, this 25 year old hailing from South London has been tipped as one of the ‘most exciting emerging [UK] producers’ this year. Already a legend in his own right, Henry Wu has received some heavy support from Gilles Peterson and the Boiler Room crowd. He was even featured on Gilles’ ‘Worldwide Premieres’ a couple of months back. We are seriously in awe with this track, which features on his Negotiate EP – albeit a sound that we’re not all too familiar with it, it does grow on you with its rich textures, beats and underlying groove. Henry has recently released six new tracks on the Good Morning Peckham EP, infusing an array of relaxed beats and synths with a true live feel – ideal for easy Sunday morning listening. Enjoy!

Last night we hosted a sport inspired Vogue Fashion’s Night Out with the incredible Kim Hartwell.

Transforming our Premium Lounge into our very own Superdry Sport Gym to celebrate the launch of the new collection. We showcased the range to the customers, press, bloggers and our social media fans.

We were joined by Kim Hartwell from Tone What You Own who put the sport range through its paces with an intense mix of workouts demonstrating how versatile the collection is. If you follow us on Instagram you’ll recognize Kim from our #WorkoutWednesday editions, covering workouts and nutrition for the complete sport package.

Taking her workouts to the next level Kim has created an incredible playlist to keep you motivated. Heading for a Friday session in the gym? You’ll need this to keep you pumped.

Our Premium Lounge was stocked with the epic new sport collection that includes capri pants, leggings, crop tops and vests. Bursting with fluoro flashes the Premium Lounge was invigorated with this bold new collection.

As with any work out hydration and keeping cool is essential so we teamed up with Pops for a unique ice-lolly drink. The flavours were intense from apple and elderflower to strawberry and mint as well as a summery prosecco and peach flavor, they weren’t around for long!

Superdry Sport is available online and in store now! To catch up from the nights events visit our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram Channels.

It’s come to that time already, it’s the end of the summer. We’re already mourning the loss of the sunshine and the blue skies, but luckily there’s still time to soak it up and party over on the party isle of Ibiza. The closing events at all the top clubs are celebrating the end of the season with epic blowout events.

Some of the biggest clubs in Ibiza have already started celebrating with Ushuaia open air club ending on a high with a massive closing pool party, hosted by David Guetta and featuring Afrojack, Robin Schulz and NERVO. Don’t fret though, there’s still loads more to look forward to if you are still planning a trip.

Part one of Creams’ closing party takes place this coming Thursday and features Duke Dumont with loads of other great acts. The event takes place at Amnesia in both the main room and on the terrace. Amnesia is also hosting the House of Madness closing party with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike on Sunday the 13th September. Amnesia’s own closing party isn’t until October 3rd so you’ve got plenty of time to sort cover at work!

Another bash not to miss is Aoki’s Playhouse closing party. Steve Aoki hosts a 7 hour music extravaganza with Boys Noize, Angel Linde, Busy P and more. Tickets are disappearing fast for this Pacha hosted event though, so make sure you jump on it fast!

Now for the most important part, looking cool and feeling comfortable is key as you embark on your 7 hour dancing session. We’ve put together these perfect looks for all the biggest closing events.

For the guys, we’ve paired a simple pair of dark shorts with a short sleeved tropical shirt, white sneakers and reflective shades to give that laid back summer look. Prints have been massive this summer so it’s that perfect summer send-off shirt. We’ve also added one of our Superdry watches with an orange face to keep you on time to all the events.

For the girls, we love the staple denim hot-pants paired with our floaty boho blue top to keep you cool in those packed club events. We also love these silver pumps so much and they work perfectly with this blue outfit, and will save the dreaded heel cramp from hours of dancing! We’ve again added a watch and shades to keep the accessories simple. The perfect outfit to enjoy Ibiza in the day time and to party the night away in.

Don’t forget to snap and share your Ibiza club antics with us using #Superdry or on Twitter @superdry or instagram @superdryglobal.

This week we caught up with Scott Purcell from Man of Many. The Australian based blogger who teamed up with friend and co-founder Frank Arthur in December 2012 to create what is fast become one of the most well read corners of the Australian internet. Bringing their readers fresh stories daily spanning from cars, fashion, lifestyle, tech & home. Here’s what Scott has to say…

Superdry: Tell us about Man of Many

Scott Purcell: Man of Many is basically an avenue for Frank and me to share all the cool things we find online. As two guys, it’s inherently targeted towards men and is pretty much a giant wish list of all the gear a guy could possible want. We cover everything from gadget reviews, the latest fashion styles, men’s interest articles, cool videos, interviews with interesting people but we’re also starting to get into video.

Our ethos has always been to stick to the things we ourselves personally like and we love it when we can introduce our readers to fresh, exciting and unique brands or products they might not find elsewhere.

SD: How did it all begin?

SP: We used to follow a bunch of other blogs from the States and send articles to each other of the cool things we’d find. It was around 2012 and most of them were getting pretty successful, so we thought, why not start one ourselves? At the time there was a real shortage of Australian blogs for the sort of stuff we were into. Nearly three years later, little did we know how much work would be involved but we love running it. From humble beginnings it’s turned into a viable business and successful site which makes us really proud.

SD: What’s the best thing about being a blogger?

SP: I guess it’s the opportunities it has presented us in terms of the amazing people we get to meet, the events and experiences. When we started out the site we never thought we’d be interviewing the likes of Andrew Bogut or Tim Cahill. We also got to travel to Wellington, NZ this year as part of our site which was an unreal time. It’s really been a learning process for us as we’ve gone along (neither of us come from an advertising, writing or PR background) but we’ve made some great friends along the way. Some of the freebies are nice too.

SD: What advice would you give to aspiring bloggers?

SP: I actually stole this tip from Maria Popova after I heard her on the Tim Ferris Podcast but no words have rung truer in my head and it’s to write for yourself. Don’t write for other people. While this might sound strange, people love reading about topics that the author is genuinely passionate or interested about. As soon as you start to write for others, it becomes a little false and a little bit like you’re trying too hard. Make the articles and topics special for yourself and something you enjoy and the readers will follow.

SD: How would you describe your personal style? What sets you apart from other fashion bloggers?

SP: I’m actually a bit of a geek by nature and to be honest, I don’t think I have the best style personally. I think I’ve got a good eye for style and what looks good but sometimes struggle to pull it off for myself! Frank is definitely the more stylish one of us I’d say. In terms of my tastes, I like things that are approachable and not pretentious. I think a lot of other fashion bloggers can try very hard to create something that looks absolutely amazing in photos but often when I look at them I think “I’d probably never wear that or feel comfortable doing so”. In that sense we try to feature items we’d actually wear ourselves.

Other thing is that we try to keep the products the focus of the site rather than ourselves. It’s pretty rare you’ll see any photos of us on the site. It’s about the products not us!

SD: In terms of fashion, what do you think is going to be big this season?

SP: I think men in general are becoming a lot more educated around their fashion. Whether it’s doing proper research around their watches or the physical properties of things like active-wear, men are becoming much more informed consumers. I definitely see mechanical watches on the rise and navy & white as the new black.

SD: What is your favourite item in your closet?

SP: Definitely a tough one. This winter I’ve really been digging my jacket from Vanishing Elephant. Always a fan of a well fitted crisp white shirt when I go out. My sunnies from Pacifico Opitcal are also probably a favourite.

SD: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?

SP: K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. As I mentioned already I’m pretty crap at putting together an outfit for myself but I’d got a good sense of what might work on someone else!

A few general tips:

  • If you’re at work, always make sure you’re shoes are polished and shirt ironed.
  • Always wear a tie darker than your shirt.

SD: What do you do when you’re not blogging?

SP: I actually still work for a bank in Sydney as my full time job. So the blog is only a part time gig at the moment but we’re hoping we can take it full time soon! Otherwise outside of work and blogging I’m a big sports fan and really excited for the Rugby World Cup this year. I also love to ski.

SD: What’s currently on your bucket list? For example, if you had three things you’d love to achieve in the next 5 years, what would it be?

I have a few other sites I want to build and get off the ground. They’re mainly focused around discovering other great blogs. It’s a pretty tricky thing to do in Australia and a really fragmented market.

Just listing things off the top of my head as they come to me now… but I want to get back into my art and painting, exercise a bit more and get my six pack back!, Travel more, eat well, fall in love… all the normal things.

Finally, what’s on your Superdry wish list this month?

So I just checked out the site and was pretty impressed. Three items I really liked are:

Whilst clouds above us may have turned grey and the calendar will shortly remind us to return indoors, the festival spirit is still very much alive and we’re not ready to hibernate for winter just yet!

This weekend,  I indulged myself in an embarrassing number of doughnuts and Mr. Whippy’s whilst rocking to the sounds of contemporary electronic artists, DJ’s and performers from all over at the SW4 festival in Clapham Common. Although the forecast promised a bit of a drizzle, I couldn’t have requested for better weather to bring out a bit of leather, and I paired my Superdry biker jacket with matching ankle boots and one of my hands down favourite styles to wear at a festival: the maxi dress. I played around with mine, and tied it with a vintage scarf and wore it down later on.

Being a 90’s kid, I inevitably had to hear Basement Jaxx play, and it was nothing short of awesome! Having mostly heard it on my discman back then, when they were still around to now be hearing them on stage sugar-fuelled on sparkly raspberry icing doughnuts… needless to say, this was an event that left the viewer speechless and entertained in a way, only London knows how!

Superdry would also like to give a special thanks to the team at ListenUp for inviting us to their exclusive SW4 aftershow hosted by Faithless.
