Sian Anderson, south London's own, has dedicated her career to elevating grime and underground music at every level. Whether it's through her show on BBC Radio 1Xtra, getting press through her Sightracked PR agency, or penning features for a whole host of publications, Sian—also a skilled DJ—is at the core and wholly passionate about the growth of British black music.
FLOOR SIXX is Sian's latest venture, alongside rapper and entrepreneur J2K. Inspired by the demand for mentoring programmes to create valuable skills, connections, and job opportunities—and shaped by the lack of inner-city youth clubs and free specialist music schools—the academy's first year is fully filled, and bubbling with enthusiastic future talent. Before FLOOR SIXX takes over the Roundhouse on October 20, featuring the likes of Kojo Funds, P Money and Shola Ama, Complex caught up with Sian to take it all the way back and handpick 10 songs that soundtrack her life.
Expect the unexpected.
