Masked Geordie rapper CASisDEAD heads bill of underground UK talent

Rinse FM, London’s long time underground pirate turned legal community station, is to celebrate its 30th birthday with the biggest yet Project 6 Festival in South London.

XL-signed masked rapper CASisDEAD, Katy B, Freddie Gibbs + Madlib, Mala, Benga, Juls, Taylah Elaine, Shy FX, sim0ne, Steam Down and Vigro Deep are the first names announced for the one day festival at London’s Brockwell Park on May 24.

Project 6 made its debut last year, receiving widespread acclaim as it united music lovers with a unique day-to-night offering at the vibrant Brockwell Park in South London. The park came alive like a bass-breathing playground, with immersive beats and booming sound systems that left a lasting impression on everyone who attended.

Since its humble beginnings as a pirate station in 1994, Rinse FM has evolved into a cultural trailblazer that has helped shape and define the electronic music landscape. Blossoming into a hugely influential media outlet that has helped make and break some of the scene’s most celebrated names at the forefront of the most exciting emerging sounds from garage, grime and dubstep to house, jungle and UK funky.

The community station – Dizzee Rascal and WIley both got their first breaks through Rinse – has given a platform to a wide range of diverse talents, pioneering the spotlight on artists across the music spectrum — it has since evolved into a respected label and events brand that releases mix CDs and artist albums, and the station’s journey from catalyst to curator is testament to its unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries, and championing the most vibrant voices in the music scene.
