Highlighting the best of Underground Creativity in the UK and Worldwide.
We strive to create interesting and meaningful discussion about music. By shining a light on lesser known and underappreciated artists, we aim to build a community of creativity where innovation and hard work are rewarded. By covering underground artists and their work we hope to expose them to new audiences, collaborators, and ideas. We believe great music can come from anywhere and anyone.
