Tha Lo'Down

Tha Lo'Down

A compilation and showcase featuring the very best unsigned urban artists in Leicestershire. Commissioned by Creative Leicestershire and Leicester City Council and supported by EMMNET.

In Spring 2007, 2Funky Arts embarked on a talent search for Leicester’s very best unsigned urban artists.  The search encompassed genres such as Soul, Hip Hop, Reggae, R&B and Drum N Bass. Tha Lo’Down was a unique chance for selected solo artists, groups and MC’s in Leicestershire to showcase their original material on a professionally recorded and mastered album. This album was officially released into the worldwide music community on Tuesday 5th June 2007, while the Lo’Down Launch allowed featured artists to perform and promote their own tracks to local fans that same day. The project exposed local artist to key figures in the urban music industry, as well as being distributed to worldwide urban music audiences via 2Funky Arts’ mailing lists and our online social networking tools.  Artists featured included Mellow Baku, Nuisance, Jah Marnyah, Kewfew, Turbo, DJ Yess and El Mahico.
