Our friends at Future Bubblers have announced their Year 3 candidates!
10 new, unsigned artists have been selected for the Gilles Peterson-backed talent development scheme, marking the third year of the Future Bubblers talent discovery of new, left field music.
The 10 new artists are:
Kayla Painter [Bristol]
Aaliyah Esprit [Nottingham]
Slash Three [York]
Blind MIC [Manchester]
Sydney [Frome, Somerset]
For the next year, each artist will be given support tailored to their individual needs. As with previous years, each of the artists has been paired each with an industry mentor. The additions to the mentoring team include DJ and record label boss Bradley Zero, who presides over London’s Rhythm Section label. Another new mentor is Aly Gillani, who runs the First Word label and is European label rep for Bandcamp, the online community and retailer for independent music.
