We have teamed up with No Boundaries, a new platform connecting creatives around the U.K founded by Vanessa Maria and Stacey Olika. The No Boundaries Mix Series presents one collective mix featuring DJs from 5 different cities!
Talent has no boundaries and neither does music. When we think about the heart of the UK music scene, we often think about London. But with the rise of new talent across the country and pockets of new scenes emerging across the UK, its times to shine a light on the creatives pushing the sounds in their own cities.
The collective mix highlights some the best upcoming DJs hailing from Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Nottingham. This is an audio experience which spans across multiple genres and styles. We’re excited to share with you some of the underrepresented talent that you don’t usually get to hear from.
Get ready to listen to a wave of new DJ talent who have curated mixes to represent their city and their sound. Talent has no boundaries and first up it’s Bristol!
