Box Talks is back with two of the most influential figures in the UK music biz – Dumi Oburota, founder of Disturbing London, plus artist (and now music manager himself) G Frsh.
Dumi Oburota is perhaps the ultimate “DIY businessman”, who started hustling at 21 when he took on a 16-year-old Tinie Tempah. Fifteen years later, he has a joint venture with Warner Music that has seen Disturbing London enter a partnership with Parlophone, the Warner subsidiary that was once home to The Beatles. Disturbing London has evolved into multidisciplinary creative company that covers just about everything from artist management, a record label, fashion and events – boasting a roster of music artists including Tinie, Yxng Bane and Poundz.
G FrSH started his career as a rapper and released some of his earliest work as a member of the FrSH collective, then breaking through to the mainstream as a solo artist in his own right with a raft of records featuring Wretch32, Tinie Tempah and later, Krept and Konan. Always inventive and pushing the boat musically and creatively, G upped his involvement in the Disturbing London team beyond just an artist to become a manager, and is currently in charge of one of the hottest properties in the scene, Yxng Bane. G has also had a hand in the culturally important Prince of Peckham pub.
