Jiro Bevis is a well-known fixture in London’s graphic landscape. Taking influence from a multitude of reference points, from ‘80s teen movies, to his childhood interest in Manga, to the comic books he used to go through from his dad’s vast collection, and many things in between.

Jiro also holds down a monthly slot on NTS exploring a variety of sounds from around the world, from UK punk to Japanese techno-pop. He is also a big lover of the Belgian New Beat area and as the complete Howlin’ collection is fully made in Belgium the theme of their collaboration was pretty clear.
