Ms Banks (pictured), Steel Banglez, P Money and DJ Target are among the talent slated for the inaugural BARS careers event, which will focus on grime, rap and MC culture.

The ‘Native Sessions’ day, hosted by Native Instruments, will gather leading DJs, artists and tastemakers for a programme of workshops, Q&As, roundtables and live shows.

1Xtra’s DJ Target will be in conversation with South London rapper Ms Banks, Jaykae and P Money. Elsewhere, a roundtable will feature Steel Banglez, Swifta Beater and Cadenza, all producers currently making huge movements in the urban world.

There will also be demonstrations and workshops on production, recording and more.

BARS takes place on 11 April at the Barbican Centre, London, and tickets are free via Eventbrite. Grab one here.
