Music Students On Track For Atomic Success
A group of Kensington and Chelsea College music students stole the limelight recently with a roof raising performance at a high-profile industry event.
The foursome waxed lyrical with a series of self-written Hip-Hop tracks at the Atom Live 2011 Music Convention, and quickly gained overwhelming praise from a panel of industry experts at the event.
Kheron Gilpin (aka AKRekz), Anita Singh (aka Autonomous Queen), Don Adamos, and Shaun Hashemi (aka Shakka), who are on the college’s Digital Musician course, went down a hit with the crowds during their 30 minute show stopper.
Following their performance a panel of music industry experts, including BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Ray Paul, said the group were
‘totally professional’ and had brought a
‘breath of fresh air to the proceedings’. In a further high-profile endorsement the judges said they would be surprised if the talented four
‘weren’t playing on big stages within a year’.
The students have since emerged as one of the front runners to land a coveted spot on a live tour organised by ATOM LIVE.
The 2011 ATOM LIVE music convention brought together industry and education, and attracted hundreds of students from across the UK. The convention – part of a series of events organised by ATOM LIVE who specialise in music projects and events for young people in the creative sector – offered students a day of seminars, valuable networking opportunities and workshops.
Course tutor Bobby Demers said:
‘Our students performed amazingly well and stood out against the other colleges that played at the event. They took advantage of the seminars, hands on equipment demos and networking opportunities provided throughout the day to gain insight into the music business, which should help them in developing their future careers’
