Urban Music Industry Panel Event – Glasgow – October 4th

Want to learn how to make, release or get Urban Music played on the radio? Would you like to take part in or listen to a discussion about the Urban Music scene in Glasgow?


Join Muslim Alim (Radio 1 Introducing Producer), Dominic Flannigan (Lucky Me Label Owner), Sean Reid (Producer/ Artist), Sace (Producer), Scatabrainz (Producer Artist) in the salubrious surroundings of City Hall’s Recital Room for this Hear Glasgow panel event endorsed by MOBO and hosted by Laura McCrum.

Hear Glasgow! is a Youth Music Initiative funded project with a remit to create access to music making opportunities for young people aged up to 25. They work with young people and musicians and the music industry to broaden participation ranging from helping a band to get on the ladder with industry advice to running music projects in deprived areas of the city which have previously had no provision.

Councillor George Redmond, Chair of Glasgow Life said: “These exciting events are the initial stages of a partnership which will form the basis of a legacy around the ongoing relationship with MOBO. It will aim to support and promote the Urban scene in Glasgow by creating more opportunities for young people and music practitioners working in Urban music. It means MOBO endorsed events will be accessible to all and will lead to a Glasgow mixtape being produced.”

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
