More about this show
  • RAP

Louis Sterling, also known as Auxx, is a British recording artist currently signed to David August’s 99Chants label. Raised in Bath, Somerset (UK), Louis first began as a descant at the cathedral, absorbing the ambient melodies of the city, until it eventually made its way into the foundation of his craft.

This month, he's put together a very special show dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the birth of Hip Hop.

"Each track in this mix has a very close/personal memory attached to them.. often moments as a teenager visiting my pops on trips up to Leeds to visit him and my godfather; learning to turn to Hip-Hop to solace in moments of grief, love, loss and everything in between. I put my heart into collating this mix and hope that listeners will find the music as moving and healing as I have done throughout my life."
