Selector Sessions

Our Selector Sessions series brings some of UK music's most exciting artists straight to you. Watch them perform live in the studio with performances from Penelope Isles, Nabihah Iqbal, Hak Baker, The Orielles and many more. And in the Selector Archive, you'll find music from past guests like Elbow, Emmy the Great, Bat For Lashes and Soweto Kinch – recorded exclusively for Selector on their way to huge careers in music.

Monster Florence Live in Session

These guys had us laughing from start to finish when they came down to record their Selector session in summer 2019. Listen to 'Peepin' and 'Scum' live in the studio and enjoy Monster Florence, a six-piece alternative hip-hop act offering something truly different. They're a collective of rappers and musicians making a hybrid of hip-hop and punk with an influence of UK grime and shades of psych-rock guitar. They released their debut album, Foul, in 2018 and have been championed by the likes of broadcaster Huw Stephens and BBC Introducing.

Rachel Chinouriri Live in Session

Expect bubbling basslines, laid back grooves and exquisite soulful harmonies from this live session with Rachel Chinouriri, the 20 year old singer songwriter from Croydon. With support from BBC Introducing, she has quickly established herself as ‘one to watch’ and her subsequent singles and her EP Mama’s Boy have cemented her reputation as one of UK soul’s great rising stars.

Bryde Live in Session

Bryde is that rarest of talents - a truly gifted songwriter and vocalist whose performances demand you sit up and take notice. In this Selector Session, the Welsh songstress graces us with two intimate versions of tracks from her debut album, Like An Island.

Mellah Live in Session

How many singer songwriters do you know that have made props and produced music for Black Mirror? Well, Mellah is a rare breed. The multi-instrumentalist produced a knockout session for us at the Selector studios, performing two tracks, 'What It Is' and the coruscating 'Cigarette Lighter' which lyrically dissects the opinion wars and political divides played out daily on social media. Once you're done with the session, check out his wonderful Middle England EP.

The Orielles Live in Session

The Orielles hail from West Yorkshire and are the champions of an evolving, psychedelic indie sound. In session for us in London, here they can be heard perfoming songs from their 2018 debut album Silver Dollar Moment and they share their insights and wisdom!
