BBC Radio 1Xtra’s MistaJam and DJ Target tonight revealed the 10 acts from the world of black music that 1Xtra tip for big things in 2017, in the station’s annual Hot For 2017 list compiled by 1Xtra DJ’s and staff.

This year, 100% of the artists to feature on the list are from the UK - 90% of which are signed to independent record labels.
The Hot For 2017 list - which introduces 1Xtra listeners to some of the artists the station predicts to be big on the scene over the next 12 months is:
  • AJ Tracey 
  • Avelino
  • Dave                                     
  • Jorja Smith
  • MIST 
  • MoStack                              
  • Ray BLK               
  • RAYE
  • Stefflon Don
  • The Fedz

2016’s line-up included the likes of Bryson Tiller, Bugzy Malone and WSTRN, who went on to have a successful year, with support from BBC Radio 1Xtra throughout.
Artists to feature on the Hot For list in earlier years include Krept & Konan (2014), Sam Smith (2014), Ella Eyre (2014), The Weeknd (2013), Disclosure (2013), Frank Ocean (2012), Wretch 32 (2011) and Wiz Khalifa (2011).
MistaJam says: 
Over the past few years, 1Xtra's Hot For list has established itself as being ahead of the curve of other end of the year tip lists; taking a temperature check on the underground to let you know those 1Xtra supported artists who will truly make an impact on wider mainstream culture in the forthcoming years.  This year's crop of artists not only highlights the immense quality of music we can expect in 2017 but also demonstrates the commitment only BBC Radio 1Xtra has to nurturing emerging artists from the genres the station represents.
