UK BLACK MUSIC ACTS: UNSIGNED UK HYPE!

 

My regular readers will already know that I dutifully showcase UK talent on Mad News (UK Black Music – The Good, The Bad and the Ugly).

 

But the majority of UK talent featured so far has been of the worst kind, and ultimately end up in my Ugly file.

 

I have to admit though I do find below par UK talent highly amusing, which could explain why I have created a platform for such mediocrity (lol!)

 

However, recently I’ve been thinking, ‘Janice you need to stop helping to make us look like laughing stocks. Stop pledging your allegiance to the US Hip Hop/R&B/Soul flag. It’s time to showcase some REAL UK talent’.

 

I am genuinely curious about the unsigned hype that is supposedly out there. So I call upon my regular UK based readers/lurkers to email me links to the best black music acts (unsigned) in the country.

 

Please email video/track links/info to madnews2@gmail.com and I will feature them on Mad News, where they will either be loved or hated.

 

*Note: I am particularly interested in receiving tracks/video of singers from the Soul/R&B genres who are currently working the underground circuit* (Reclaimin get on to it!)
