The Royal wedding is nearly upon us and those in the business of towels and ceramics have never been busier.
A Royal wedding means a commemorative plate and ever ready for a celebration, Manchester clothing brand, Bench, has thrown its crown into the ring with its own souvenir for Wills and Kate's special day.
Designing a limited edition commemorative dubplate, the brand has teamed up with electro maestro Doorly to create this one off souvenir.
Doorly, renowned and respected within the underground music scene, has produced an exclusive mix inspired by Elgar's Land of Hope and Glory that is sure to feature in Harry's after hours bash, if not the happy couple's.
2010 saw Doorly breakthrough and establish himself as a major player in the UK and international dubstep and dance music scene, remixing tracks from the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Laidback Luke, DJing the Prodigy's tour and headlining Ibiza Rocks. His track will be accompanied in digital form by a dubstep remix from up and coming Manchester based producer Jayou.
The limited edition dubplates will be available exclusively in Bench stores, as a gift with all non-sale purchases over £20. Visitors to the store must give the secret password, which can be found at their official site, to till staff to bag themselves the limited edition souvenir. Only 500 of the dubplates will be available, launched in Bench stores at 11am on 29th April.
The MP3 download of Doorly's mix will be freely available exclusively to Bench fans on their Facebook page from 13th April.
Bench was born into Manchester's underground music scene, the same scene that spawned some of the world's greatest artists and DJs. Dance music is the brand's blood, with heritage in leading electronic music events from Space in Ibiza to Melt! Festival in Germany.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
