When PSYCHODRAMA was released March, Best Fit rated it a 9.5 out of 10, writing, "PSYCHODRAMA isn’t an album to stand up and rejoice to. It’s a sit-down-and-consume, a listen-and-learn. In doing that, you appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into the prose. It’s an overwhelmingly powerful 51 minutes of music unlike anything released this year. We’re truly in the presence of someone leading a remarkable generation of UK rap and I have no doubt we’ll look back at PSYCHODRAMA as a seminal piece of art in this movement."
Last night's awards ceremony at London's Eventim Apollo saw performances from Foals, Anna Calvi, slowthai (featuring the severed head of Boris Johnson), black midi and their gymnast guitarist who did a riotous routine of flips and tumbles, Little Simz, IDLES, Fontaines DC, and more.
This year's judging panel saw new additions Stormzy, Jorja Smith, Gaz Coombes, Annie Mac, and Tshepo Mokoena, as well as returning judges Clara Amfo, Jamie Cullum, Mike Walsh, and more.
