This Monday, Regent Street Cinema will be the proud host to the world's first invisible cinema.   The audience will try brand new technology where polarisation filters from a load of LCD screens are removed, leaving the screen blank.   The only way to see the movie is to put on a pair of specially designed viewing glasses. They are equipped with polarisation filters to fill the gaps on-screen and make the images appear.   Now You See Me (2013) will be the film screened, which focuses on a group of illusionists, played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco.   This free screening is offered by Santander as a part of the ‘For Your Eyes Only’ campaign, which found that 85% of 18-25 year olds share personal information on

One year on: Remembering Lil Peep

One year on: Remembering Lil Peep

Arts, Entertainment, Music, Podcasts
Today marks the one year anniversary of the accidental death of emo trap rapper Lil Peep. Peep died at the age of 21 from a fentanyl and Xanax overdose. The first of this month would have been his 22nd birthday, on Friday his first posthumous album Come Over When You're Sober Pt. 2 was released and today marks the anniversary of his passing. His death left him a martyr and a role model for so many teenagers going through suicidal thoughts and depression. Peep was an artist that managed to infuse the emo rock of the 2000s into the trap rap of last few years. On this weeks episode of the Voice of London podcast, I talk with an ambient artist from Oxford, Slooshy Me O Brother. His new record is releasing on 1st December entitled "wave_(s)" and can be streamed on SoundCloud or Bandcamp.
