Generator has teamed up with The Roundhouse, EMI and Livewire for this year’s 30/30.

Over 30 days in November, 30 emerging artists from across the UK will record tracks in the EMI / PRSF studio at the Roundhouse with a top music producer, going on to release them on Roundhouse Records and perform at the ‘Roundhouse Rising’ event in February 2013 in London. 

We are pleased to announce that Newcastle's Tessera Skies & Shift Static were selected for this year's project, Tessera Skies have been teamed up with Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and Shift Static will be working with house producer Rui Da Silva. The full list can be seen here.
