“Native” features a diverse mix of credible home-grown musicians, producers and bands to form professional album, featuring an eclectic mix of Alternative Rock, Rap and Dance so there is an song for everyone. One of the tracks “The National” by Lethal Dialect has already received national exposure through RTE’s hit show Love/Hate . Other artists include; Tremoya, One of the Boys, Spinafly & DJ Kann, as well as many other exciting acts.

Feidhlim Byrne, from Nielsen Music added “It is an ideal platform for artists and students to see how media monitoring works in a real life setting. We are delighted to be involved in the project”.

John McFadden, from DCFE said “With the Nielsen Music partnership, the students have even more industry data to assist in the album’s success. The benefit of this project is that our students understand the process of releasing and promoting an independent album in Ireland”.
