In the build up to the London 2012 Olympics, the BBC and LOCOG have organised Music Nation- a weekend of music to create a buzz around the Olympics. To kick things off, the Barbican are holding ‘Urban Classic‘, when the BBC Symphony Orchestra will team up with artists from the UK’s ‘Urban’ music hub. Artists include: Ms. Dynamite, Fazer, Devlin and Skepta who’ve all worked with the orchestra to create unique takes on some of their biggest hits. Watch behind the scenes footage of Ms. Dynamite and Fazer as they work with the orchestra after the break; Urban Classic is happening this Saturday 3rd March and tickets are going for between £10 and £20.
