THE ROLLERS CRICKET BAT
I am a big fan of drum and bass and was happy when a set of DJ’s I enjoy listening to joined to become Kings of the Rollers. The cricket bat is linked to them making hard hitting tracks and they have also sampled Booker T & The MG’s Soul Limbo (which, as we all know) was used for the BBC cricket theme tune in their sets. There’s lots of fun links to cricket in their music and during their sets, which was the inspiration for using the bat as a canvas. I thought it would be a fun object to paint on and so I created this using the DJ and MC’s names along with the Hospital Records logo who represent KOTR.
