0121 The Rise of Birmingham PT:3

Whilst it’s evident Birmingham is rising, it’s important to ask – in comparison to what exactly? We’ve already established that London, although once was, is now no longer the benchmark to which we should be measuring against. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the place and power is irrelevant to Birmingham’s story, far from it.

Following our in-depth conversations throughout this journey, it’s clear to see the way in which an artist’s perspective develops over time, and ultimately differs, depending on the space they are operating in at any given moment of their career. Those at the top seem to think the time for a competitive mind state, required for progress, is over, and now, it’s more of a collaborative one – between both the statesmen and also the states themselves.

If the first two parts of #0121TheRiseofBirmingham gave us an insight into the history (heart) and the driving force (spine) behind what is the ever-growing Birmingham scene personified, part 3 brings us the mind, the head of the pack, the front line, and it highlights the direction that the scene is heading in.

In the final part of #0121TheRiseofBirmingham we converse with two of the most prominent acts in the scene to date, JayKae and Lotto Boyzz.
