London DJ duo AUDIOCOMINGSOON are a fitting embodiment of the contemporary energy of London’s music scene. The pair are multi-hyphenates, navigating the worlds of fashion and audio. Behind the music, Ashton Gohil and Emmanuel Lawal are close friends who bonded over their deep love for music. It’s a passion that has opened doors for them in the worlds of presenting and DJing. When Schön! chats to the duo, they’re at Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival with Polaroid Eyewear. Gohil tell us how ACS came to be and both creatives eagerly share some of their defining tracks in a curated playlist for Schön!

Hey Ashton, what are you up to right now?

We’re at Mad Cool festival presenting and interviewing people for Polaroid Eyewear.

If someone asked you what your origin story was, how would you describe it? 

[Emmanuel] and I met through a mutual love of music. We both played instruments. We started to learn how to DJ and we were really rubbish at the start. We used to go to clubs and literally press play. We started doing the fashion circuit, started doing events and working with a few fashion brands. ACS is a triangle so we have the DJing, the presenting and the podcast.

How would you describe your personal style in three words.

Eccentric, vibrant and colourful.

What is the most precious thing in your wardrobe?

My jewellery. I wear a lot of gold.

Which living person do you most admire? 

It changes every year. As you grow older you draw different things from different people. I would say that right now, I always look at Idris Elba. He’s managed to navigate multiple industries. He’s managed to stay on top of his game. He’s a friendly character but he’s also a colourful character. He’s always himself and that’s what I try to do. I try to be the same person in every room that I go to.

Who would play you in the story of your life?

Remi Malek

If you could play any venue which one would it be? 

I went to a crazy club in Brooklyn recently called The Brooklyn Mirage. I was like yo, I need to play here.

Where are you happiest?

When I’m busy.

Lastly, what is your ideal meal?

Egusi soup and pounded yam.
