Each year we invite established professionals, subject experts and artists and creatives from across the UK to form part of the independent Jury that will select the Shortlisted Artists and Fellows of the Arts Foundation Futures Awards.
We are thrilled to share that the Jury members for the Arts Foundation Futures Awards 2023 for Electronic Music are:
Born out of his travels through the many global currents of contemporary London, GAIKA’s music is dark yet melodic, experimental yet catchy. While drawing strongly from his Brixton upbringing and his Jamaican and Grenadian heritage, GAIKA’s sound is ultimately expansive, seamlessly weaving musical motifs, vocal flows and slangs of UK, US and Caribbean music.
Nemone has been at the forefront of UK national broadcasting for 25 years, with the last twenty two at the BBC. She is a familiar daytime voice on BBC 6 Music but her passion for music led to curating a specialist show, Nemone’s Electric Ladyland, for the last decade.
Fin Greenall aka Fink started as a DJ/Producer before making guitar-based folk/blues/indie music. Greenall signed to legendary label Kickin’ Records in 1994 and subsequently signed with Ninja Tune in 1997, releasing the critically acclaimed Fresh Produce in 2000 and DJ’ing worldwide. Fink has worked with many established artists including Amy Winehouse and John Legend and has toured the world.
Entering its 30th year, the prestigious Arts Foundation Futures Awards support the UK’s most promising artists and creatives at a breakthrough moment in their careers with £10,000 unconditional Fellowships.
The Shortlisted Artists for the Electronic Music award be announced in January 2023. The winning Fellow receiving £10,000 will be unveiled at a live Award Ceremony in February 2023, with all shortlisted creatives receiving £1,000.
