A refresher on NME

NME is a global media platform that creates and curates content, products and experiences essential to music, film/TV, gaming, and pop culture fans today. NME releases a weekly cover dedicated to finding the greatest up and coming artists from across the globe. Everyone from The Beatles to Taylor Swift have graced the cover. 


What’s the C-series about?

Back in 1986, NME launched an influential cassette compilation called C86. The curated mixtape spotlighted some of the era’s most exciting bands — opening with the iconic track by Primal Scream, “Velocity Girl”. Emblematic of the emerging indie scene at the time, C86 was a seminal moment in NME and music history. 

In 2023, NME teamed up with Bose to bring back the iconic C-Series mixtape with C23. This project celebrated Bose and NME’s joint commitment to the discovery of incredible new music, featuring the who’s who of the most exciting new talent across multiple genres.

Fast forward to today, where the series lives on with C24! Here’s your chance to immortalize your talent in an era-defining compilation that will be embraced amongst music lovers for years to come.
