Using London as their base, Red Bull Studios have been able to bring together all manner of different artists.
Last summer Monki invited a number of friends along, resulting in an acclaimed EP which received more than 100,000 plays and downloads.
Repeating the trick, Monki recently set up camp in Red Bull Studios London base. A plethora of young talent came along for the ride, with an upcoming EP set to contain the following tracks:
Joe Goddard x Kidnap Kid x Moko - 'Let Me Go'
Cause 'n' Affect x Preditah - 'Strange Signal'
Mak & Pasteman x Mella Dee - 'Mad City'
Murlo x Novelist - 'Flavour'
Sinden x Thefft - 'It's On You'
Zoo Music - 'Stride It Out'
Out shortly, the grime heavy selection pairs established names against precocious newcomers. Novelist made his mark last year, with the talented MC and producer releasing his debut EP 'Sniper' via Oil Gang.
Murlo stepped in to remix the title cut, turning it into muscular anthem. Pairing up once again, 'Flavour' finds Murlo on production with Novelist getting behind the mic.
Check it out now.
