Here at ACCLAIM we’re proud to release our second print issue of 2016, Issue 36 ‘Versus’. This issue explores ideas of opposition: meetings of minds; clashes of opinions; something worth fighting for; or how it feels to fail and prevail. ‘Versus’ was guest edited by Max Olijnyk a Wellington-based writer, skater, and clothes maker.
The ‘Versus’ issue cover stars Kaytranada looking more glowed up than ever. In a rare feature-length interview the Canadian producer discuss life after the release of his hit debut album 99.9%. Kay opens up about his dislike of touring, the creative pressures of producing, and his new life as an openly gay man. Shot in Melbourne during his recent sell-out tour the story is accompanied by photography by Ben Clement.
The issue also features long-form features on grime rapper Novelist, producer Goldlink, illustrator Stefan Marx, Beats 1 host Julie Adenuga, and photographer Tim Hillier.
Additional content includes: Upfronts on London Skate Journal, Daisy Watson, Mallrat, Rita Lino, and Braindead. Style editorials from Rene Vaile, Jordan Drysdale, Charlie White, and Ben Clement. Plus a few more surprises.
