See. Hear. Read.

Welcome to our Broadcast section. Think of this area as a rolling stream of consciousness, a flow of aural and visual information beamed direct from the Cable office.
In 1969, drummer Gregory Cylvester “G.C.” Coleman unknowingly performed what would come to be the most important 5.2 seconds of drums to ever be sampled. The amen break was consequently used in hip-hop, jungle, drum and bass, breakbeat and the list goes on along with its legacy.

Cable have teamed up with award-winning garment designers and Eco-clothing pioneers THTC to bring you this famous sample in a physical, wearable form and in two sleek colour-ways. All THTC products are made from either hemp/organic cotton blends or carbon neutral organic cotton, with the original Amen THTC design being created by Jo Mclean and Phil Askew. They are also a founding member of the Ethical Fashion Forum and when runners up in the Observer Ethical Awards in 2006 as well as the Re:Fashion Awards in 2008.

Established in 1999 and fuelled by the pulse of the urban music scene, THTC has been producing high-quality, in-demand products for well over a decade. Their garments are carbon neutral and certified by The Fair Wear Foundation and The Soil Association, as well as being supported by Woody Harrelson, The Foreign Beggars, MC GQ, DJ Randall, Dynamite MC, Stamina MC, Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee and Trojan Sound System to name a few.

Amen Break by Cable X THTC is available from the Cable venue itself as well as our online webstore.
