Bristol Because with Mustafa Mirreh, Editor, Tap The Feed

When did you first move to Bristol?

Born and bred in Bristol, whoop! But I did live up in the Midlands over a short period for uni, so technically I did move (back) to Bristol.

Who’s your top Bristol artist at the moment?

Oh man, this question gets me every time! There are so many Bristol artists smashing it at the moment; IDLES for me are on top right now, so proud of them. Then there’s Fenne Lily, Harvey Causon, No Violet, Heavy Lungs, Swimming Girls, just so many!

What are your favourite eats around town?

I’m on the gym mindset at the moment so a cheeky Nandos is a must (gains, ha!) but there are some great little spots. My personal favourite right now is Ronak Café on Gloucester Road. Hands down the best food and smoothies in Bristol!

What’s your favourite thing about the city?

For me, it’s the people here. There are so many creatives doing so many awesome things at the moment and it’s great to see. I’m always finding something new and interesting to check out or follow.

And your least favourite?

I’m really happy in Bristol but it has become overcrowded to some degree due to its popularity. House prices going up as well when you’re trying to save towards one is not good, and the aforementioned gym – don’t get me started!

What are you most excited about for TTF this year?

Firstly, a massive shoutout to everyone for all the support with Tap The Feed since the relaunch at the start of last year; the feedback and progress have just been unbelievable and we’ve been going from strength to strength. This year has kicked off to a great start; new team members, working on our next showcase and some really exciting projects in the pipeline which I can’t wait to announce in due course, so watch this space!
