Jamal Edwards and SBTV are taking grime to Texas' SXSW with an official showcase In an association with British Underground. The showcase will feature performances from some of the the UK's hottest MCs and producers including Stormzy, South London's Section Boyz, Boy Better Know's Frisco and members of the The Square, Blakie and Elf Kid. Producers Mumdance and Iglooghost complete the line up.

The showcase brings together some of the more established and well known talent with some of the more underground rising stars and further shows SBTV's commitment to shedding light on up and coming talent. Jamal Edwards explains "SBTV has always spotlighted great British talent, so it is fitting that we are the music platform who will be representing the best emerging artists from the UK this year… our line-up reflects Britain's diverse music scene. With high profile US acts and media paying UK music a lot of attention at the moment it's more important now than ever to have a carefully curated SXSW showcase exclusively spotlighting UK music."

The Showcase takes place in Wednesday March 16 2016 at Main Event II from 8pm. Access is granted with a Festival music badge holders. For more information head to sbtv.co.uk
