On Record: Live! Dapz on the Map

Sunday 27th March

Steel Pulse bassist Amlak Tafari and broadcaster Satnam Rana present twenty-two conversations with Birmingham musicians, promoters, managers, venue owners and entrepreneurs who have all contributed to local, national, and international music culture. Join us and our special guests for conversations about their lives in music, their connections to the city, and how Birmingham has inspired or influenced them, personally and musically.


Selected dates also feature free live performances from the artists appearing On Record. The first of its kind, On Record is a multi-artist, multi-genre concept album forming a sonic love letter to the city of Birmingham. Produced as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, the eleven-track album will be available on a limited vinyl release and across all streaming platforms.

Multi-talented artist Dapz On The Map garners respect from both fans and the music industry with his moving tunes that touch on the personal and political. He grew up listening to everything from Dancehall, Jungle & Garage to underground Grime & Rap and combines these influences into his own neo-soulful sound.

The Birmingham born singer and rapper eloquently raises topics that other MCs fear to speak and talks of the struggle he’s faced as an aspiring artist attempting to balance being both a father and a musician. In this conversation we discuss a career that has seen him steadily rise up the ranks in the urban UK music scene from national radio play to supporting Kano and Skepta on tour.

Produced in partnership with B:Music
