30th of May see's the final Bigger Than Barry of the academic year and for this momentous occassion we're linking up with our good friends and online big shots 'THE HIPPO COLLECTIVE'. Since starting their student culture magazine in October, The Hippo Collective has grown to having over 100 writers from universities all over the UK. The online magazine covers all things culture, politics, literature, fashion, music, film and the arts; we're overjoyed to have them along for the ride.
Headlining the end of term blowout is one of BARRY'S original Birmingham amigos CHRIS LORENZO. We've been supporting him from day dot and we're proud as punch to be welcoming him back, now as a global superstar. If you don't know his recent tune 'Rhymes' with 'The Queen' of House & Bass Hannah Wants, then you're sure to have heard plenty of his tunes on dance floors across the UK as he ghost writes for dozens on these big dawgs!
In support of the main man are two up-and-coming producers, both of whom are receiving ridiculous love at the moment, 99 SOULS & BILLON. 99 SOULS' track 'This Girl Is Mine' has become a house anthem in recent months, reaching top 10 status on Shazam's Dance Chart and boasting 100s of thousands of hits on Soundcloud and Youtube. Check out their Soundcloud here. You can't change the station to get away from 99 SOULS over the past month; they're everywhere and we're proud to be hosting both theirs and RINSE FM'S BILLON Leeds debut. BILLON have quickly found popularity around the world, from both their own EP and extensive list of remixes - all being supported by some of the biggest names in the industry. Check it all out here.
