I was lucky enough to attend the kick off to the MADE Underground series at a private residence in Malibu last night to check out Brooklyn-based four-piece band,X Ambassadors, along with Jamie N Commons, a British folk musician who are behind the hit song “Jungle”. They, in collaboration with Budweiser and Alex Da Kid, convene an all-star symphony of diverse street sounds from these world capitals to create the ultimate “busker band” who will work with Alex Da Kid to re-record a version of “Jungle” and then perform it at the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Los Angeles on Labor Day Weekend!
Through MADE Underground, part of their global MADE for Music campaign; Budweiser is highlighting the brand’s long-standing support of great music and great artists of all types around the world. Inspired by the global confluence of music and other dynamic forms of artistic expression, Budweiser MADE for Music gives global music fans access to some of the most unique musicians, artists and creators that inspire greatness in all of us – from global icons like Rihanna and JAY Z to emerging artists like Jamie N Commons and X Ambassadors to undiscovered talent like underground and street performers from around the world. You can watch the MADE Underground trailer below along with the London episode and New York episode.
“As a street musician from London, I am so excited to be a part of Budweiser’s MADE Underground,” said Jamie N Commons. “There is so much talent in the most unexpected places and through the series we will all help to shed light on some of the most genius musicians from across the globe to re-create an awesome track and deliver what promises to be an amazing performance at Budweiser Made in America Festival.”
Alex Da Kid, founder and label head of KIDinaKORNER Records where both X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons are signed, will co-direct the series and produce and guide the busker band through the remaking of the track exclusively for MADE Underground. The hand-picked band will re-record a special version of the artists’ electrifying summer anthem entitled “Jungle”, which has already received a remix from JAY Z.
“Living in New York, it’s hard to miss the amazing talent around every corner which is why I am so thrilled to work with Budweiser’s MADE Underground to showcase the truly brilliant street performers throughout the world and highlight the energy they bring to our city life,” said Sam Harris of X Ambassadors.
