Having enjoyed a very fruitful time with events and some pretty amazing product we had to take a break from our series of mini interview’s. Now we are back with Nike’s Fraser Cooke, the DJ who has just come off the back of playing an influential role with Nike’s involvement in the Boneyards project with Stussy and Neighborhood. Check out his answers to our questions below.

SXH – Which 3 people would you want to have dinner with, if you could eat with anyone?
