Mode 2 x Urban Spree: “Straight Outta Lockdown” HPM prints to be released

“Straight outta Lockdown / The Freedom Prints” is a series of vintage Mode 2 prints (from the mid 2000s to the early 2010s), hand-painted or hand-sprayed in 2020, and re-numbered in very limited runs.

We inaugurate this summer with a series of print releases from the Berlin-based graffiti “legend” (he HATES that term!) Mode 2.

Published originally by Pictures on Walls, Lazarides, MHI or Sergeant Paper, most prints sold out quickly, some runs were never released, and the artist recently came across much of these print archives that had been stashed away years ago; some from his personal quota and the rest returned by the publishers.

The idea came to release them again, though not without hand-finishing each series; even the ones that had already been through this process.
Each print has therefore been custom-painted by Mode 2, to embellish the works with matching Belton spray colors or acrylic paint. Those HPMs have been re-numbered to create a new edition, with added aesthetic value and a marked difference from the original release.


The first print of the series is called “Sofa Spank”, originally released in 2010

“Sofa Spank” Part of the “Straight Outta Lockdown; the Freedom prints” series. Vintage 3-colour silkscreen print; customised and renumbered as an edition of 20. . When the pandemic hit us all, and our plans were either postponed or cancelled; I realised that I should hold back with originals, looking back into my archives, to see what hidden gems had been stashed away for years. I had reclaimed many of my prints back years ago, knowing that I would re-release them at a later date; transforming them into something a little special, to completely differentiate them from the original releases. . “Sofa Spank” was a double-page drawing in an old A3 sketchbook, from early 2004; a nudge and a wink of sorts to the kind of games that consenting adults get up to in private. I have been attracted to erotica probably since seeing the “Abraxas” cover from Santana as a child, or been exposed to @heavymetal comics maybe a little TOO early. In all my public work though, I have always tried not to cross that line separating sensuality or erotica on one side, from vulgarity and sexism on the other. . In other words, and given the tensions created by the lockdown, this image is more to do with the rediscovered intimacy during prolonged periods of time spent with one's partner, than any kind of allusion to domestic violence; apparently on the rise these past months. . Looking through the chronology of images, “Sofa Spank” was redrawn then made as a pastel drawing on wallpaper for my “A Matter Of Taste” show at the Dragon Bar, late October 2004, as well on 70cm X 100cm heavy card, for “Santa's Ghetto” on Charing Cross Road the following December. No idea WHAT happened to ANY of these pieces! . The drawing was made into a print for my 2010 WeSC show at Galerie Issue in Paris, as one of four erotic print editions, which I withdrew after having sold a third of the run. . I spent some days mid-June customising this and two other prints, with spray-paint supplied by @legacybln ; transforming “Sofa Spank” into a special limited edition that will go on sale via @urban_spree VERY soon… . #mode2official #mode2 #sofaspank #vintageprints #handfinished #erotica #urbanspree

“THIS!”: 3rd Print in the Mode 2 “Lockdown” Series

“Straight outta Lockdown / The Freedom Prints” is a series of vintage Mode 2 prints (from the mid 2000s to the early 2010s), hand-painted or hand-sprayed in 2020, and re-numbered in very limited runs.

“THIS!” is the third release of the series and by far the oldest print, having been published in 2003 by PoW in London.

Based on a flyer for the “THIS!” parties at Bar Rumba initially drawn in Mode 2’s blackbook, the motive was digitally printed in quadtone and has been hand-sprayed by Mode 2 in June 2020 with 3 matching tones of Belton.

The final run of this new series amounts to 24 prints only, signed and numbered.

“THIS!” 68cm X 45cm One of three series of vintage prints, a full colour digital print, customised and renumbered edition of 24. . I met @swifty_grafix with @robiwalters a show at the Blue Note club in London, December 1996. He had @kambhogal_  and @freddeak.in working with them up in Ladbroke Grove, at #studiobabylon . They plugged me in to a part of the London club scene, connected to labels like Talking Loud or to (Straight No) Chaser magazine and so on. . @mitchy_bwoy joined springtime 1997, running the London club flyer scene; from Jah Shaka, to Passenger, or Movement at Bar Rumba itself among many others. . Discovering “That's How It Is” at Bar Rumba was love at first sight. In 1993, @janinedingwalls and @gillespeterson were offered a night at a West End venue, and Gilles suggested Mondays, a clean break from the weekend crowd. He suggested to have @unkleofficial join him, while @beesayed backed Janine up on all her club sessions. @ben_wilcox99 later joined the team, and then there were also illustrious guests. . My blackbook drawing (photos by @louis_curiosities ) shows the parachute on the ceiling, hiding the @funktiononeofficial speakers delivering an eclectic serving of music that attracted the faithful from the world over. . I did a few banners over the years (the one at the door getting stolen!), with paint reacting to black light, but the drawing was first used in 1999, when the name switched to “THIS!”; and from it came a bunch of other drawings of club scenes and dancing crowds. . When @stevelazarides asked me to join PYMCA in 2003, the flyer became one of four prints I did for him. I rescued what I could carry of all remaining ones from Pictures On Walls in October 2018, then decided during the lockdown that we should re-release them; not without enhancing each one with matching Belton colours from @legacybln , and transforming them into something much more personalised. . “Sofa Spank”, “Oh Sh…” and “THIS!” go on sale at @urban_spree this Thursday 9th of July at 18:00 CET. Link in bio. . That's it. There will be no more left stashed away after that. . #mode2official #mode2 #londonnights #clubnights #vintageprint #customised #straightnochaser

“Oh Sh…”: 2nd Print in the “Straight outta Lockdown” Mode 2 series

“Straight outta Lockdown / The Freedom Prints” is a series of vintage Mode 2 prints (from the mid 2000s to the early 2010s), hand-painted or hand-sprayed in 2020, and re-numbered in very limited runs.

The second print of the series is called “Oh Sh…”, originally produced in 2009 but never released owing to some specks of alien colors spotted on most prints while signing them. Mode 2 decided subsequently to call off the run and keep only the good prints for future use.

11 years later, the message conveyed by the print couldn’t actually be more acute, in a news ecosystem battered down by fake news, outright lies, and state violence.

The prints have been reconfigured in a 40-print run, all hand-sprayed with 3 different colors matching the original tones (gray, red, white), signed and numbered by Mode 2.

“Oh Sh…” One of three series of vintage prints released by @urban_spree ; a 3-colour silkscreen print, customised and renumbered as an edition of 40. . Back in 2006, I started subscribing to @mondediplo , a monthly French newspaper part-owned by its subscribers, editorially more independent and impartial than most. I rarely finish all articles during busy months, as each reads like a university thesis in its complexity; bringing historical, cultural and geopolitical context to the saturation of 24/7/365 selected data parading as news today. . It's a depressing read at times, exposing and deconstructing the dysfunctions of our world; which is what inspired the original “Oh Sh…” drawing. I often wonder where would society be if many more people were less complacent and apathetic in the way they informed themselves on the world around them. It would greatly help in the crucial and polarising debates of today. . I only have a digital scan of the original drawing, as the A5 blackbook that it was in was stolen in Barcelona, January 2007, during the Bread & Butter trade show. . Ten of us sitting around a big table outside of a bar, and nobody saw a thing, when I went to the bathroom. NEVER leave people in charge of what is irreplacable for you. Thieves are SLICK over there! . In October that same year, I decided to release a print of it for my #party&bullshit show at @mahahardy 's DPMHI shop, for which I also did a painting on linen of the same visual. . I found far too many prints with tiny spots of pastel yellow on, when signing and numbering; so I pulled the series from the show, keeping only the good ones. They are now being re-released, after having been individually enhanced with grey, white and red spray-paint; the Belton black stock caps giving that “spittle” technique. . “Oh Sh…” is an apt metaphor of the shock of this pandemic, the protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd, and how governments use this to railroad in new measures, colluding with the deluge of lies and contradictions fed to us by once trustworthy news sources.    . #mode2official #mode2 #ohshit #vintageprint #customised #badnews #protests #breadandbutter

Night Shift 1st Year Anniversary

𝔉𝔬𝔯𝔢𝔫𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔰 presents: Night Shift

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

For its 8th edition, Night Shift celebrates its first anniversary! One year of synthetic hits, dark beats, teased wigs and torn tights!

On the program: LIVE concert, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco, Retro Wave and Techno!

Night Shift ft. Paradox Obscur + Open Drag Stage

𝔉𝔬𝔯𝔢𝔫𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔰 presents: Night Shift
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2018
00H00 – 06H00+
URBAN SPREE

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.

On the program: Paradox Obscur LIVE, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave.

For its fifth edition, Night Shift comes back from a long summer break with a bang! We’re going back to our original format with one room but are tripling our stage performances.
The live stage will be taken over by very special international guests: emblematic Greek duo Paradox Obscur!

Paradox Obscur were formed in January 2014 by Toxic Razor & Kriistal Ann in order to step into a more minimal direction than their previous projects and haul a diverse universe consisting of dark hardware synthesizers under a cold drape of spiraling electronics.
Their live shows are characterized by the raw energy and extended passionate female vocals.

Listen to Dark Fortress:

On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by fresh faces of the Berlin drag scene. They will have the pleasure of sharing their art with you, some of them for the very first time, and offering you a show always darker but always more fun!

At the DJ booth, our resident DJs Al Niklaus and Inept Pernicious will be joined by Mr. Manic.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.

Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.

We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience.
