  • (1888PressRelease) February 08, 2013 - With another hugely well-received installment of UNI Music League (UML) this week, there seems to be a recurrent theme popping up here. Every element of positivity surrounding the night seems to be on an exponential rise.

    The quality of the music grows with each event, and we haven't even entered the quarterfinals yet. The four acts that went through include acoustic bliss, rocky madness and funky fusion pop. The variety on offer in this competition tailors to every musical taste, and the quality ensures any impartial neutrals are left equally satisfied. The array of organisations supporting the event or individual acts themselves include the likes of Metropolis Group, BBC6, Music News, Saatchi Gallery's Art and Music Magazine, etc., not to mention the student media of all the participating universities.

    Also on the rise is the captivating atmosphere. Resident DJ Billy Clarke, also a regular presenter on Roundhouse Radio, is entering further into his comfort zone at these events, giving the dance-floor a magnetic attraction. And, as if made of steel, the crowds are drawn into a dance frenzy of smiles and giggles to last all night long.

    The photography mini-exhibition now seems to have an obligatory 5-person radius at all times. With the collaboration of Skye Portman, who has photographed the likes of Bon Iver, Gotye and Tenacious D at venues including Wembley and the Hammersmith Apollo, UML has graciously added the most simple of touches to this fantastic live music night.

    Next week sees the final showcase go down followed by a 2-week break before the quarters. Some truly outstanding up-and-coming acts will be performing, among them The Harlots. This 4-piece have already recorded with old-school London producer Paul Tidler (Idlewild/Elastica/Forward Russia) and had their tunes mastered at Abbey Road. With enough variation between the various acts to make me repeat myself (see above if you've skimread), expect the subtle 'culmination aspect' of next week to elevate the night to the next level.
