The team behind this year’s Rising Styles Hip-Hop Festival (formerly known as the Brighton Hip-Hop Festival) are putting together a CD compilation in conjunction with July’s event to showcase some of the best Hip-Hop talent the UK has to offer.

The finished product will be available as a free Hip-Hop Connection cover-mount CD, with selected artists also being given some editorial exposure inside the magazine. 

The submission deadline for tracks has now been extended until Friday March 14th so click here for more info.

PyroRadio.Com presenter and HHC columnist DJ Excalibah (pictured above) will be involved in selecting the CD’s final tracklisting. The influential homegrown Hip-Hop figure had this to say when asked about what he’d be looking for from artist’s submissions and the importance of the Rising Styles event to the UK rap scene:

“We’re looking for solid new material showcasing the range of Rising Styles that are abundant in the UK. I’ve been an avid supporter of new artists for the last ten years and this CD fits in with everything I stand for.”

“The Rising Styles event is a culmination of all the elements of Hip-Hop from across the UK. We have nothing else like this in the UK therefore this event is very, very special. It allows artists and fans a platform to network and enjoy the scene we’ve been creating over the past twenty years. Big up the team behind it who work very hard for very little financial reward.”

So get clicking and reserve your place on what might just end up being one of the hottest UK rap albums of the year!
