Christopher joins BBC Introducing Superband

Maida Trak in the Studio

On Thursday Christopher went to Maida Vale Studios with BBC Radio 1Xtra.  Throughout the week the 1Xtra Specialist DJs had been nominating an act from each genre of music to come together to form a superband.  Robbox Ranx selected Christopher.  He was joined by ShezAr, Macca, Baoyz Muzik, Metrik and MoeLoGo.  They met for the first time at the studios and had just 8 hours to record a track, using Angel’s backing band.

Cleverly named Maida Trak, the band recorded a song called Going Places.  It was premiered on the Trevor Nelson show on 1Xtra on Friday morning.  You can listen again to the segment here from 01:09:50 with Christopher’s solo vocal coming in at 0:14:44.

I felt privileged that 1xtra asked me to be on the track! I always find the journey to studio exciting as you never know what art is about to be created, you just have to bring your voice and your ideas. It was great to meet the other guys for the first time and be part of such a project! Big up 1Xtra!” Christopher Ellis
