As you would expect at a record label we quite often see artists coming and going during the day. Now and again these artists get together and create something a little special. Last week Mercury’s reception was invaded by Dappy, Tinchy Stryder, Pixie Lott and the crew from SBTV for this spontaneous acoustic performance of Spaceship.
