Ripe. When a fruit is ripe, it is time to pick it and eat it. If you say the time is ripe, then now is the time for action. Ripe means ready.

Podcast manifesto…

Via open discussions and exploration into environmental issues with experts in their given field, we aim to unearth the ways that many inspiring individuals are picking their own ripened fruits.

Discussions will be across the board, including; artists, musicians, poets, scientists, chefs, curators, environmentalists, and many more.

The common thread will be one of love for the natural environment and their concerns of climate change. Each podcast features four records played in stereo format on a record player, powered by Unit 137 sound system.

One track will be selected by our guest, one by Hylu, one by Masai and then a remix or similar of our guests track.

A bit about Hylu and Masai

Hylu and Masai met over 7 years ago in London – a shared love for sound system culture and vinyl has repeatedly found the two wrestling for a way to merge their artistic talents. Sometimes to make that work you have to look outside the box. Both vegan and highly concerned about the effects of climate change and global warming, conversation often returned to discoveries of; superfoods, environmental policies and political negligence. It has been realized that the conversations had, could be of interest to others and that guests could in turn broaden their own knowledge, and so born was “All Fruits Ripe”


An innovative DJ/producer/engineer and founding director of Unit 137, a collective of progressive musicians, vocalists, producers, sound engineers, DJs, VJs, videographers and photographers drawn together by a shared passion for conscious, forward thinking bass music. Unit 137 are based in SE London (Lewisham), where their recording studiorecord label and sound system are all located.


A visual artist based in London that uses his research of endangered species as a topic of discussion to heighten the general public’s awareness of the ‘sixth mass extinction’. When not working in the studio Masai travels around the world painting murals in cities, towns and villages, these are often of locally endangered species. It has been documented that his paintings have reached out to people in ways that environmentalists and activists find hard to capture. To this effect he often works alongside scientists, and conservationists as well as environmentally thinking companies.
