Presented by our favourite Jamz Supernova, we present week two of our fresh new live-streaming series with Spinnup that gives opportunities to new and emerging artists at a time when the usual opportunities to play to a crowd have disappeared.
Lockdown With Spinnup is set to bring an unrivalled selection of curated new music favourites directly to your front room over the next week following on from the success of the previous week – so be prepared to discover your new faves all in one place.
Lockdown With Spinnup will be introducing new artists to the world via a unique programme airing five days a week. Featuring interviews at 1pm by new music tastemaker Jamz Supernova, all the acts offer insight into their music and story so far, whilst delving into what the lockdown means for them, exploring some of the challenges, as well as positive impacts on creativity during this time. From there they launch into unique live performances presented by Jess Iszatt. It’s a perfect way to get to know some of the best rising talent breaking through the airwaves, and you can get to know them on a more personal level too.
Spinnup is a global music distribution service that enables independent artists to release their music on to all major streaming platforms whilst retaining 100% of their royalties and rights. Spinnup also works closely with A&Rs at Universal Music and puts your music in front of the decision-makers at the world’s biggest record label.
Obviously, times are tough and times have drastically changed. With the usual ways we have discovered new talent becoming obsolete, we adapt and change to the times. Hence, Lockdown with Spinnup – bringing together key influencers in the musical sphere, a regular outlet for artists to introduce themselves to the world is being established.
Announced today is the second week of acts and broadcasts:

Quinn Oulton – Thu 30th April, 5pm

Lucious soothing tones and mesmeric soundscapes come right to the fore with an artist already scooping tips and nods from across the industry.
We are more than proud to team up with the inspiring Spinnup, and to be apart of this tastemaker new programme. Lockdown With Spinnup will air on weekday evenings at 5pm via our Instagram Live (@notion). These artists have a total home-based creative agency (stay at home, save lives), incorporating items from their home “studios” into their performance. With more broadcasts to be announced over the coming weeks with a range of partners, the platform provides a window into the world of the next wave of UK artists, as they all take a truly unique approach to creativity at home.
So, now you’re in the know, don’t forget to head over to our Instagram at 5pm to get to know the next generation of artists you’re going to want to know.
