We are delighted to announce Sian Anderson (BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ and grime ambassador) and Jason Black (aka J2K and co-founder of Crep Protect) have signed a sponsorship deal with Bucks Music Group for the publishing arm of their unique new music company, FLOOR SIXX.

FLOOR SIXX celebrate the best underground music across a range of genres by releasing exclusive singles on its own channels across Deezer (an early supporter of the venture), VEVO, iTunes and Spotify.

 

Grime and afrobeats are the focus points for 2017, with an exclusive new track being released each month, accompanied by its own music video.

 

The proceeds of each track will go into the FLOOR SIXX MUSIC ACADEMY, a ten week mentoring programme in association with Louder Than Words, Platform and Red Bull Music, that will provide artists and the next generation of music moguls with the knowledge required to further their careers.

 

Under its sponsorship deal, Bucks Music Group will take care of worldwide administration, business affairs, sync and licensing for FLOOR SIXX Music Publishing, as well as publishing all tracks on an upcoming FLOOR SIXX compilation.

It will also fund signings, the first of which is an exclusive publishing deal with London MC Capo Lee who recently released his Stop Talk EP with producer Sir Spyro and has worked with veteran MC’s such as Frisco (Boy Better Know), D Double E (Newham Generals) and P Money (OG’z). Within the last year the Tottenham raised artist has seen key support from DJ’s across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss and Capital Xtra as well as features in the likes of Interview Magazine, Wonderland Magazine and Complex UK.

Capo Lee currently has a single out with Saf One called Gyal From Brum. It’s been well received, chosen as DJ Target’s Record of the Week on 1Xtra, and garnering over 100,000 views on SBTV in its first week (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuvIIi2oDDY)

Capo Lee is currently working on records with Mumdance and DJ Q and features on the upcoming Saf One EP The Link Up.

Sian Anderson said: “Super excited to be teaming up with Bucks on FLOOR SIXX Music Publishing, for years I’ve known Harri and Sarah at Bucks to be real lovers of music of all genres and key figures in regards to nurturing artists as well as delivering successfully as publishers. This is a huge move for us, Bucks really see our vision and we’re all really excited about having Capo Lee as our first project, he’s a brilliant artist.”
