Back after a five-year hiatus, the chart-topping south Londoner will take questions about anything in her life and career
Continuing our new series of interviews where readers ask the questions is one of the most vivacious British pop stars in recent memory: Katy B, who is returning to music after a five-year hiatus.
Raised in Peckham, she trained at the star-minting Brit School but cut her teeth on the London club circuit amid the UK funky craze of the late 00s, guesting on tracks including As I by Geeneus. Soon signed by former pirate radio station Rinse FM and firmly embedded in a dance scene where dubstep was also flourishing, she drew different sides of nocturnal London together on her debut album On a Mission (2011). The Benga-produced single Katy On a Mission, with its distinctive police-siren vocal riff, championed the jaw-jangling dubstep sound, while Lights On with Ms Dynamite used the nimble rhythms of UK funky – it was an astonishing one-two punch that launched her into the mainstream, each track going Top Five in the UK.
