Last week marked the end of a three month journey. That journey being SBTV‘s partnership with Big Lottery Fund, the New Day Foundation (NDF) which saw us seek the help of Britain’s youth to spread the positive message of peace via music…
The Peace Mix project culminated in the release of a positive, inspirational and all-round uplifting track courtesy of SBTV‘s resident producer Jake Warren, NDF and the help of six vocalists and four musicians from all over the country. This included an intro from Narjes Fawaz (Laughta), a hip hop verse each from Phil Fairhead (Prince Phillip) and vocals from Joseph James (JoeJas), a grime verse from 15 year old Keir Dickson (Whispers) a grime beat from Sunni Gill and a chorus from NDF.
We couldn’t be more pleased with how the track turned out, and would like to thank Big Lottery Fund for their instrumental role in getting this project off the ground and arranging amazing studio workshops to engage the young artists involved. We’d also like to thank the New Day Foundation, and everyone else who played a part in this project, for all of their dedication and tireless work over the past few months.
The single is one element of a wider campaign which also saw the Peace Mix “Mic Relay” take over 11 cities in the UK with the semi-final taking place at The Eden Project. The grand final took place on August 28th at the Roundhouse where Tinchy Stryder and Maximo Park took to the stage to celebrate the end of the tour.
At a time when much of Britain’s youth receive a lot of underserved press, The Peace Mix project has really shown the ability of the country’s young people to come together and spread a positive and worthy message in the name of peace.
