Mitch's bio:
"Well it all started with a twix and a blue crisp, Growing up in Birmingham me and my brother were exposed to all types of genres of music from different cultures. My mum's favorite kind of music was what wore off on me, she used to listen to artist like buju Banton and beenie man and a few other Jamaican artists. By the time all the new songs came out I had already memorised all the words to the old songs, and could sing them word for word as if they were my own, which is where I think i started learning how to remember music in my mind. My generation at secondary school it was the era of grime, so some now iconic artist like Ghetts, Skepta , Wiley was the fore front of the music scene. And this also was a stage in my life I decided to try and start writing music as I saw it as a way to express myself through the struggle I was going threw as a teenager. I was told In school I was very good at rhyming and won mc completions etc.
 
When I left school I found that i had lost all interest in making music and was more interested in what paid the bills. Until I found myself in a situation where all I had was a book, a pen and my musical memory which I had built up from my childhood . So I decided to just put everything I had learned musically from all the different genres and I mixed it together perfected it and came up with a unique uk kind of bashment flow. I used to rap to friends and they would tell me I was good but I didn’t believe it until I chose to take the chance and show the world and then I became Mitch by popular demand.
 
Now I strive to take my music to places and levals I never thought I would be able to reach and now there’s an actual uk rap scene I wanna be one ov the forefront artist in this scene but I also want to stand out from the rest, US Artist like lil reese inspired me to stand out and be different and tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth in my story. This  way how could I lose..."
 
Skeamer's Bio:
Skeamer considers himself a young man who uses the genre of “drill rap” music to articulate the things he has done and seen through out his life growing up in the hardships of south west London. Skeamer’s music is particularly influenced by his experiences of prison from a young age and also the deaths of his close friends. On the flip side Skeamer embraces these hardships he endured and notes that this is where the foundations of his unbreakable social bonds were forged.
 
Growing up in the notorious Winstanley estate in Clapham junction, Skeamer witnessed the rise of the So Solid crew which inspired him to create music of his own. After trying his hand at formulating his own raps, Skeamer soon realised he was a natural at grabbing the audiences attention. Encouraged by his friends to pursue music, Skeamer grabbed the local spotlight within battersea and now hopes to make his friends and family proud by doing so and emulating the success of those before him.
