PATTA Q&A: DAMO

13R

Who are you, and where are you from?
I'm Damian, most people call me Damo and I'm from Brockley, South London.

What keeps you occupied on a daily basis?
Connecting with likeminded people and making shit happen. Whether that's events, videos, campaigns. Whatever.

What is your best power piece at the moment? (clothing, collectors item etc)
Has to be either my pocket comb (you think this beard maintains itself!?) Or Patta x Levi mesh hat. I've been rocking that nonstop.

What is your favourite visual at the moment and why? (art, photography, videos)
My good pal Sir Spyro's video "Side By Side." Best video ever in Grime. Beg someone tell me different... didn't think so.

Which music artists are you currently listening to and would you recommend others?
Been messing with Skeamer & M Dargg for a while now. Also Reeko Squeeze. Local lad doing big things. He's deffo next up.

What is your favourite travel destination?
Obviously with my people. Paramaribo, Suriname, can never get enough.

What is your relationship with Patta and when/where did it start?
Boy- let me try keep it short. I used to work for Gimme5/Stussy UK whilst at The Hideout, so I came in contact with the guys via emails for work purposes. I then went on to organise their first ever pop-up in London. They also knew some good friends of mine, Woei guys etc. So that cemented the friendship I guess.

What is your most memorable moment with Patta?
For me, it definitely had to be the popup in Covent Garden. Especially having my mum come down and see what we was trying to achieve. I'm a moist guy when it comes to family.
