ALEXiS was introduced into music by his father who is a well respected Midland’s DJ and inspired by the works of lyrical Hip-Hop artists such as Nas, Talib Kweli and more. This talented Wolverhampton artist has been putting it down for years, reaching the finals of Urban Voice Competition, as well as radio play from BBC Introducing WM. Under his old alias of Mr Vanitee he featured on Baby J’s classic ‘FTP Mixtape’ alongside Skinnyman, Jammer, Rodney P and many more. In 2012 he met producer Fyba and in October 2012 blew up the underground with his mixtape titled #HashTag. This was followed up by his second mixtape ‘SkoolDays’ which dropped in March 2013 and again was very well received. Since then he’s been playing live sharing stages with names such as Genesis Elijah, Ruthless, Supar Novar and more. Now due to drop his brand new release ‘Melody Of Life’ the future is looking promising and successful for this born entertainer.
NATURE THE KIDD from South London Nature is no new comer to the music game and was signed by Incentive Records/Ministry Of Sound at the tender age of fifteen with UK Garage collective Empire Squad. His love and passion for music continued and at the turn of the century he became part of the well respected South-West Hip-Hop collective Sons Of South (S.O.S) who went on to sell three thousand hard copies of their mixtape series ‘All Eyes On The South’. He has also shared stages with some of the UK’s finest such as Klashnekoff, Micall Parknsun, Sway, Doc Brown, Phi Life Cypher, Blade, Million Dan and many more. Recently he dropped his solo debut mixtape ‘Nature’s Way’ with UK Runnings which was well received by Hip-Hop fans all over the globe, getting solid reviews and leading to live gigs all over the country.
