The Undisputed – album and video

We’re proud to present the album ‘Journey’ – created by a group of young people from East London who formed band ‘The Undisputed’ on Making Tracks this summer. The project was run in partnership with The Prince’s Trust Get Started.

As well as producing the original music, they created their own radio shows, ‘Jazzy K’ and ‘SKJK’, which are included at the end of the playlist.

They also worked with Mediorite to create this vibrant video for their track ‘Melodic in the Mist’ – featuring Jahanzeb, Kye and Jazz, edited by Jahanzeb.
