Last night we celebrated the release of our new issue, bringing cover star Cham down to the Hiro Ballroom for one damn fine party.

Max Glazer (looooooooong time FADER familia - issue one, holler!) opened up the night with a dancehall megablast of one-drop hits, massive new riddims, throwbacks (Shabba's "Love Punany Bad"? THE JAM.) and of course, his own exclusive Federation Sound dubplates. He stayed on the decks for Cham's live set, which was highlighted by an accapella toasting of new cut "Tick Tock" and a full on RAH! RAH! RAH! performance of "Ghetto Story". Then our man Eddie Stats got on to keep all the Sapporo sippers wine-ing with more blazing DJ selections - and wine they did.

Big ups to everyone involved with helping us put this party together, especially Jacqie Juceam. But you didn't come here to read our props-giving, you came for pictures! We gotcha.
