The top 3 items all come from a 1999 issue of Straight No Chaser magazine.
Off Centre was a fortnightly club-night that started up in 1997 at the 333 in Hoxton, London, with the idea behind it being to present dance music that was more leftfield & experimental while staying rooted to a soulful, jazzy kind of vibe.
The top article tells a bit about the club, the people involved, the music and the visuals that went with it.
The club itself was on 3 floors, with drum & bass, hip hop and funk featured in the basement - the middle area playing jazz, latin and garage - and the top space blasting out the reggae & dub.
In 1999, Off Centre brought out a compilation album showcasing the variety of music they specialised in, and so the 2nd item above is an advert for it.
Under it is a review of the album - and underneath that is the CD from my collection - the top notch cover graphics the work of Graham Rounthwaite.
