Summer By The River: BBC Introducing in London

BBC Introducing in London presenter Jess Iszatt is back at The Scoop to present another sizzling line up of the best emerging talent from the capital.

Catch three up-and-coming artists in a line up specially curated for Summer By The River by Jess and the BBC Introducing in London team.

Nikhil Beats

Born and raised in East London, Nikhil Beats draws from a wide variety of influences and has carved out his own British-Asian sound. With an expanding discography, he has worked with the likes of Finn Foxell, Danny Sanchez, Bawo and KeepVibesNear to name a few.

Earlier in the year, Nikhil successfully launched his own merch line before announcing his first festival booking at Hackney's Dialled In Festival in April. Breaking the outdated mould that producers should remain in the shadows, Nikhil is setting a new precedent and setting the tone that producers are artists in their own right. With his first London headline show sold out last year, his live performances are getting stronger with each show. Not one to miss.

Surya Sen

Surya Sen is a British-Bengali electronic producer and rapper from North London. His passion for the New York boom bap scene led him into a love affair with the sampling culture of the 90s and the desire to emulate artists such as Large Professor, J Dilla and Pete Rock. As his interest in different genres developed, he branched out to dance based music and eventually fell on the Detroit House and Chicago dance movements.

His stage name is taken from Bangladeshi revolutionary Surya Sen, who led the armoury raid against the British Empire to campaign for independence in India, being inspired by the way the revolutionary took it into his own hands to be heard.

Lucy Tun

Lucy Tun is a British/Burmese musician from North West London. With a creative output as diverse as her influences, Lucy is as comfortable among the glitter of radio-friendly pop and R&B as she is exploring a more electronic underworld: her music shimmers with impish, hyperactive energy undercut with potent basslines. She isn’t afraid to get introspective either, exploring themes like heartbreak, the complexities of growing up, womanhood and mental escapism. Her genre-defying song catalogue keeps listeners on their toes, weaving lofi 808-smattered production with the joyous familiarity of mainstream pop. You simply can’t keep her in a box.

On top of being an accomplished singer, songwriter and producer, the fashion world can’t get enough of her either -- Gucci called on her to DJ the launch of their Jackie 1961 bag, Fred Perry highlighted her as a talent to watch and i-D featured her in their Summer 2021 issue.
