Fumin Gets A Break

Earlier this year, Music Matrix was commissioned by the Arts Council to source the cream of urban talent across the UK. A winning song has been selected by Galaxy DJ and MOBO Award winner, Steve Sutherland, and will now be performed live from Ibiza on Galaxy, the UK’s biggest commercial youth radio network with more then 2.5 million listeners. ‘One Night Stand’ featuring Nana, Fumin and Baby Blue was the track that caught Steve’s ear. It has been produced by Dexplicit who was also behind Lethal B’s "Pow" record which charted at No 13 earlier this year. NaNa was catapulted into the limelight back in 2000 as the featured artist on the Architechs UK top three garage anthem, ‘Body Groove’. The track sold some 500,000 copies and achieved platinum status. Five years on and NaNa (27) is now launching her career as a solo artist. Fumin is a 19-year-old MC from East London and despite being unsigned, has still been attracting the attention of the media with his debut mixtape ‘Freckle Face’ securing coverage in top style and music magazines, including i-D and RWD. Nana, Fumin and Baby Blue will be flown out to Ibiza and will join Steve as he broadcasts live from Plastik, San Antonio on July 31 from 10pm-2am (Ibiza time) as part of the Galaxy in Ibiza weekend. Also on the billing that night will be performances from some of the biggest, established, chart-topping names.
