Tickets are on sale now for the launch of a brand new concept: UK Drill x Fine art.
The art world and Drill scene come together for an unprecedented collaboration against artistic censorship.
This is the launch of an Exclusive track (produced by GottiOnEm, MKTHEPLUG & Sapphire Beatz) and video world premiere for ‘The Media’ by Skengdo & AM and Drillminister alongside the art installation Young Blood by Andrei Molodkin bought to you by a/political.
Russian artist Andrei Molodkin and London Drill musicians Skengdo x AM and Drillminister have united for ‘The Media’ a new track, video and limited edition vinyl release, commenting on freedom of speech and discrimination.
All funds raised from ticket and vinyl sales will be donated to Brixton Wings, based on the Angell Town estate.
Andrei Molodkin receives ongoing censorship in the artworld for his provocative exhibitions where he uses the political materials of blood and oil from different conflict zones. Curators redact his texts, prohibit him from answering to the media, and on numerous occasions, museum-boards have attempted to close his exhibitions.
Skengdo x AM have made legal history after receiving a suspended nine-month sentence for performing their song Attempted 1.0 at Koko, London. Since the high profile case, the musicians have spoken candidly about the discrimination suffered by the Metropolitan Police and how they have been used as the scapegoats for governmental failings of lower-income areas.
Drillminister, known for his track ‘Political Drillin’, is also leading the political voice of the genre.
The audience will be invited to donate their blood on site and Skengdo & AM and Drillminister will perform live sets, before the first screening of The Media video.
There will also be some words from Jodie Ginsberg (Index On Censorship) and Medg Sullivan (Brixton Wings Charity)
