Nia Archives, Cat Burns and Flo have been nominated for the Brits Rising Star award. The prize, formerly known as Critics’ Choice, has previously tipped the likes of Adele, Florence + the Machine, Sam Smith and last year’s winner Holly Humberstone for success.

Bradford-born, Leeds-raised producer Nia Archives, 23, is at the forefront of the current UK revival of jungle and drum’n’bass. As a teenager besotted with the likes of Roni Size, Burial and Roots Manuva, she moved to Manchester where she became involved in the rave and house party scene.
