Bringing together the creative community of London's ever-growing SE14 area, the new independent label, NX Records, is a collaboration between Matthew Herbert's Accidental Records, and the students of Goldsmiths, University of London's popular music course. Showcasing the best sounds from New Cross, London, the label will be kicking off with a launch at the PureGold annual music festival at the Southbank.

Featuring music spanning genres from baroque, opera and contemporary premieres, to singer-songwriters, electronica and installation from the likes of Niomi Eve, Tom Morley, Scopic Frames, Thefft and Accidental DJs - the showcase will be set across three stages, displaying the wealth of talent at Goldsmiths. Hear the premiere of the new mix compilation above.

"NX Records exists to showcase the talents (and hopefully launch the careers) of up and coming artists who have begun their creative journey at Goldsmiths. Initially it is intended as a platform for students from the popular music course (alumni include Laura Bettinson of Ultraista and Hugh 'Crewdson' Jones) and it was they who came up with the name NX - to reflect the label & the College's home in New Cross - and who are involved with A&R, organisation & running of the label, alongside Matthew and Accidental." - Simon Deacon, Director of Popular Music at Goldsmiths
