PODCAST: The Influenced panel discuss their favourite current UK artists


We have liftoff!

Episode One finds me joined by my good friends Mark and Lee to discuss:

MC Nadia Rose and the risk of talented artists not getting the 'push' or attention they deserve during a musical golden age.

Band Chinatown Slalom and the UK music scenes' history of mixing indie, hip hop and electronic dance music.

Singer Greentea Peng and how 'trip hop', decades after the genre was first labeled as such, continues to quietly and satisfyingly make its prescence felt in contemporary UK music.



Here's the accompanying Playlist, discussed during the Episode.
