Author: Tevyn J | Monday 20th January 2020
Over 30 artists, songwriters and producers in Grime, Rap, R&B and Afrobeat from across the UK including Alicai Harley, Big Narstie, Conducta, Diztortion, Kamille, Maverick Sabre, Nadia Rose, Shakka and Yizzy, took part in a three day songwriting camp that has been captured in a new documentary from PRS for Music and Spotify.
Filmed behind the scenes at London’s famous RAK Studios over three days, the documentary captures the first ever ‘WhoWeBe Songwriting Sessions’, bringing these artists together in the same creative space for the first time.
Each representing British culture in their own unique way in the studio, the documentary sees the artists, songwriters and producers talking about their creative process, connecting with each other, working together and discussing what it’s like to be part of a songwriting session.
Other artists that took part in the WhoWeBe Songwriting Sessions include AOD, Big Zuu, Cillian, EY, Frisco, iO, KrizBeatz, Lioness, Moelogo, P2J, Preditah, Remedee, Rocco, Savanna, Scott Supreme & Scott Styles, Sharna Bass, Show N Prove, Skengdo x AM, SL, Still Greedy and TSB.
The WhoWeBe playlist has grown substantially over time and is now the UK’s biggest Rap, Grime and R&B Playlist, with over half a million followers.
