Loco Dice & Hoxxoh
DJ & graffiti artist
One minute you’re collecting music and playing records occasionally in the local youth centre, the next minute you’re working with artists like Usher, Ice Cube, Jamiroquai and Snoop Dogg. That’s the story of rapper / DJ / producer Loco Dice. ‘For me, nature - and flowers and plants in particular - represents the ultimate innocence.'
'It represents love, peace. I always have flowers around me.’ Loco Dice’s tight beats were big source of inspiration for graffiti artist Hoxxoh, who creates murals all over the world that explode with colour. Loco Dice and Hoxxoh hardly knew one another, but clicked immediately.
Hoxxoh: ‘My work is repetitive, almost mechanical, just like Loco’s. I translate the wavelengths of his beats into taut graphical flowers.’ Banners remind him of the placemats in fast food restaurants from his youth. ‘All those ads that are fired at you: it distracts, you didn’t ask for them. Green Screen fills that space with a sea of inspiration.’
