Finesse Foreva is often mistaken for being the premiere label for UK Drill which isn’t a bad thing, but they are so much more than this. For the latest episode of Who We Be Talks, DJ Semtex connected with SK (Skillz) (27) and TK (27), 2 entrepreneurs who together with their in house producer JB, co-founded the Finesse Foreva label, and management company based in Croydon. Hearing them tell their stories about their individual and collective journeys, it is apparent that the Finesse Foreva mavens are ingrained within the culture and the greater South London community. They have an unrivalled, knowledgeable overview of the relationship between the streets and emerging artists.
As well as providing a home to genre defining UK Drill acts such as Skengdo & AM, and S1, Finesse Foreva are essentially community activists. They invest in, and empower the youth from their community. They run an entertainment company that could just as easily be mistaken for a social action foundation as they provide training opportunities for young creatives, future music industry execs, and they are equipped with the necessary experience to develop raw, challenging, uncompromising artists.
