Pop-up shop rolls back into Southampton

The last time that independent Artists ShaoDow and Zuby ran the pop-up shop in Southampton West Quay shopping centre it was late summer, and it was an outstanding success.  It's fair to say that tonnes of fans old and new, as well as supporters of independent music, dropped by to scoop a moment to listen to the new tracks from both artists, on the latest technology from Freesound Audio.  

Taking advantage of the 8 speakers incorporated into the FAC headphones which provide an immersive noise-cancelling listening experience combined with the ability to play music from the built-in MP3 player, or stream samples of new work via bluetooth, ShaoDow and Zuby are able to demonstrate their own music whilst showing off a vast array of impressive merchandise.  All of which has been produced independently.

After ShaoDow appeared on TV in the award winning (yep it won an award!) documentary DIY: Words, Sound and Power, director Tom Greenidge returned to do a short follow up documentary with him called ‘ShaoDow – 2 Years Later’.

Watch this short video which will give you a taste of just how the pop-up shop has proven such a successful model for this entrepreneurial rapper, which now offers him the perfect opportunity to reach new customers and gain a larger following whilst maximising his merchandising opportunity.

pop up shop proves success

After the success of The Blue and Purple pop-up shop in Whiteleys Shopping Centre in Bayswater (where we sold out of headphones in a week!) ShaoDow & Zuby have been selling via their 2nd pop-up shop aka The Blue and Purple Store in the massive Westquay Shopping Centre in Southampton.

This has proved to be a big hit for fans both new and old, because not only has it given them a chance to come hang out with the artists, but to scoop exclusive merchandise only available from the pop-up shop.

The Blue and Purple store also has given fans a chance to test out the Freesound Artist Collection Wireless Headphones, which feature music from the Artists built into the MP3 player.  This has proved a great success with units flying (or more aptly being kung-fu kicked) off the shelves.  The response to the store has been phenomenal.

Look out for the next Pop-up shop which will feature a Limited Edition Headset finished in Black and Gold logos.  This will only be available from the shop so keep an eye out on social media for the announcement of where and when that will be.
