South London poet, rapper and playwright Kate Tempest plays from her Mercury Prize-nominated new album 'Everybody Down'. Her punchy flow is halfway between rap and straight-up spoken word, as she spins out absorbing tales of urban malaise, hope and 'beigeness' accompanied by a live band (overseen by producer Dan Carey) and a dance troupe.
Enchanting experimental pop with a hip_hop beat by Paul Dixon from Manchester, formerly known as David's Lyre but now trading as Fyfe. He'll be presenting his new album 'Control'.
