The affiliation to UK hip-hop came about in 2004.
Livewire had respect for British music that was just not getting the exposure it deserved. When a few friends started rapping Livewire decided to incorporate their music within his radio slots and club bookings.
Radio and Bookings in the clubs gave Livewire the perfect platform to promote that home-grown talent he had championed. As the trend of mixtapes began to grow in the UK Livewire was approached by artists to host their mixtapes.
One such artist was K Koke, who is also a close friend, Livewire pushed & promoted Pure Koke Volume 1 with K Koke, which lead to the artist being signed to a major label. He went on to also host a second and third in the mixtape series Pure Koke Volume 2 & 3
