#SnackChat: The Age of L.U.N.A Schools Tour: Day 1

#SnackChat #Urban Development #The Age of L.U.N.A. #Schools Tour #UDMF

This week, Urban Development headed out on tour with the unique and uber talented 4-piece innovative hip hop band, The Age of L.U.N.A.

In-house producer NK-OK, rappers Butch Arkas and Kyoto Noir plus singer/songwriter Daniella Thomas make up the young London quartet putting their own fresh stamp on hip hop. United by a love of 90’s hip hop with a realm of other influences thrown into the mix including Fela Kuti, Tears For Fears and grime heavyweights such as Kano; The Age of Living Under No Authority are making it their place to inject musicality and consciousness back into hip hop with their own UK twist.

So on a very very early Monday morning we set out to a not so sunny Southampton to kick off proceedings. The 100% live set up impressed Redbridge Community School, especially with 16 year-old prodigy NK-OK producing on the spot and even providing an on the spot mix encapsulating all of the bands influences got the kids going crazy. But it was when the free t-shirts started being given away that the kids really lost their minds, throwing them on with pride instantly, eager to get the band to sign them after the set.
