Kid Acne's 'Equipment' series sees him illustrate the "tools of the trade" for beatmakers and electronic musicians and the style was exactly what we were after. A simple and bold depiction of the iconic piece of audio equipment with Kid Acne's unique style and type. The chest print shows the spine of a cassette with the artist and track, throughout the series each new track will be added to the stack.

Kid Acne is a UK-based artist, illustrator, print-maker and emcee. His formative years were spent writing graffiti, self-publishing fanzines and making experimental hip-hop – invariably designing and printing the record sleeves by hand. The culmination of these interests informed the development of his own unique aesthetic, first documented in the seminal counter-culture tome, Scrawl (Booth-Clibborn Editions, 1999).
