Rep Dat Presents One Mic

On Thursday 2nd February, our friends at present a live talent show consisting of 9 acts and 3 genres that takes us into the world of undiscovered UK urban talent. The showcase will be filmed on the night exclusively for OH TV (Sky Channel 199), and broadcast on Monday 5th March 2012 at 10pm and repeated Thursdays at 10pm for three months.

One Mic differs from other talent shows on television as it aims to boost the popularity and lyrical content of unknown artists who specialise in the following genres: Hip Hop, Reggae,Soul/R&B.

The majority of talent shows use the same format making them predictable and lacking in entertainment. The UK urban scene is highly under-represented despite there being a huge following by 14 – 27 years olds.

The artists will not only receive exposure to a global estimated audience of 25 million viewers worldwide, but the overall #onemic champion will receive a music video produced by Jimmy Chiba, and a studio session with Unit 2 Recordings Studio.

Venue: Traffic Club, Victoria House, 1 Vernon Place, Holborn, WC1A 2EP

Date: Thursday 2nd February 2012

Time: Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm

Judges: Tippa Irie, Lush, Johnny Keterman, Solomon Penumuchi
