NEW GEN Announce Live Album Show With BRITs & WarChild
Great announcement for NEW GEN!
We've been seeing and hearing about NEW GEN for a while, and now the UK Urban collective have curated an album which will be performed live during BRITs week.
NEW GEN boasts a team of young talented like minded individuals, who are described as the pioneers of the new age urban and grime scene. Heading the music movement is XL Recordings A&R Manager and GRM Daily editor Caroline Simionescu Marin.
Hosting her own NEW GEN show on Radar Radio, and after putting on a string of sold out 'New Gen Live' events, Caroline's natural progression with the NEW GEN team was to create something more longstanding... Announcing the NEW GEN album.
Released on January 27th 2017, the NEW GEN album features an array of the UK's most exciting artists including Bonkaz, Avelino, Ray BLK, AJ Tracey, WSTRN, Stefflon Don, TE Dness, Kojey Radical and more. It’s anchored in the half space between trap, grime and new wave R&B, the melting pot which has typically come to represent the New Gen sound.
Teaming up with the BRITs and charity Warchild for BRITs Week will give fans the opportunity to see the album performed live at Kamio, and bring to the stage the artists tipped to mark the face of UK music in the coming years. They will be performing alongside Craig David, Tinie Tempah, Anne Marie and Basement Jaxx.
