Everyone You Know

London

Monday 13th May 2019

Name, where are you from?
H: I'm Harvey and I'm from a tiny place called Denham just outside of Uxbridge.
R: Rhys (Everyone You Know), sunny old Sandhurst. 

Describe your style in three words?
H: Casuals, Mod's, Sportswear.
R: Heritage. Classics. British.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
H: Probably Jay-Z & Kanye West when they did that Watch The Throne Tour. Went with my old man, must have been about 13 at the time and it was the absolute b*llocks.
R: I would have to give it to The Prodigy I think. Me and Harv took our old man to see them last year at Ally Pally, it was the b*llocks.

If you could be on a line up with any two bands in history?
R: Arctic Monkeys and Wu-Tang Clan. They are two of my favourite artists of all time, so to be on a line up with them would be mad. I think it would be an unusual lineup and it would properly boot off. Plus I've never had the chance to see either of them live...

Which subcultures have influenced you?
H: I've grown up with my family wearing loads of casual brands and my grandparents wearing loads of Mod gear so I'd have to say Casuals and Mods have had the biggest influence on me when it comes to what I wear.
R: Growing up I took a lot of influence from 90's East Coast Hip-Hop and everything that evolved from that. But also The Mods, '90s Rave, Punk, UK Hip-Hop. You can see all the influence in the way I dress, the music, the lyrics and the live performances. We grew up with so many different influences around us, it was hard to just slot into one scene.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
H: David Bowie, simply because he had such an influence on millions of people and was never afraid to express himself. He was and still remains an icon.
R: That's a good question. There are so many people it could be for me. I think at the moment I would say Bob Marley though. He was just such a genuinely talented and intelligent man. I would love to just hear him play a couple of tunes live too.

Of all the venues you have been to or played, which has been your favourite?
R:
I'm gonna have to say, Ally Pally. Again, just because of that Prodigy show. I think playing there would be top-draw.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
R: Jehst. I think he is one of the greatest UK rappers of all time and fully helped pioneer the UK Hip-Hop scene, but is never mentioned when people talk about best UK MC's. I think for someone that has done so much, he isn't appreciated enough.
