It was only three days ago that Aina More found out she’d been handpicked by Virgin EMI signing, Professor Green, to open his London show at Camden’s Roundhouse. Having met with the UD team, worked out her set list, prepped her backing vocalists and DJ/ hype man, it was down to Aina and her manager Gabrielle to get the party started.
As any artist who’s ever taken to the stage will tell you, the soundcheck is as important as the show itself. After catching Professor Green mic checking and an impromptu meeting later, Aina got her first taste of what was to be a memorable performance that evening.
With a dressing room and rider at the ready, the crew were show ready and good to grace the stage and show the crowd who the new rap kid in town was with her three-track set.
Warm-up's delivered, a further set having come from DJ IQ, it was time for Professor Green to show what years of live performance amount to; a great show.
"It was great to get involved with Urban Development and a nice way for us to end the tour with Aina More supporting Professor Green at the Roundhouse. Everyone at Urban Development were great to deal with and so too were the people around Aina at the Roundhouse on the day of the show. Aina, her band and crew were very professional and a pleasure to work with. Working with Urban Development again is definitely something we would look to do in 2015. Thank you."

Something of a competition first here at UDHQ, we hope to provide more opportunities with our #DareToDream work in 2015.
