DJ going back to his roots with #exploreyourcity...

MistaJam, former prince of the underground pirate airwaves and now an established beats-dropping BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra DJ, has joined forces with Palladium Boots in an effort to let the public explore the unexpected essence of his Nottingham roots.

The prolific music champion and TV presenter has taken to the streets of his hometown as part of Palladium’s extensive videography ‘Explorer Series’, which follows influential creatives from around the world, capturing the hidden cultural, artistic and musical movements that mean the most to them, and that are often less obvious to most. Be sure to follow the series with the hashtag, #exploreyourcity.

Authentic and stylish are terms as applicable to the footwear Palladium designs as much as those who wear them. Their utilitarian Pampa boot was designed after the war, utilising technology previously employed in the aviation industry. So effective was their performance and design the boot was adopted by the French Foreign Legion and has continued to be so by many a serious world traveller since. Palladium Boots are truly engineered for any city’s terrain.

Following MistaJam (pictured) on a tour of the influential neighbourhoods of his youth, taking in the sights, sounds and inspirations of Nottingham, will be the precursor to an exclusive DJ set at a limited-numbers event at the city’s legendary Bodega venue on 17th October, with the launch of the city exploration film following on the 30th October.
