Olivier Laouchez, chairman and co-founder of Trace, said: “Being back in the UK at a time where the UK urban scene is so vibrant has a unique flavour. This is Synchronicity! 16 years ago, we could not afford to launch even one TV channel on Sky and now we are launching 3 TV networks that will celebrate various aspects of the urban culture and the people who make it in the UK and the world. Trace is the bridge, the connector of urban culture and UK will take a special place in our global network. Trace is the new home for the UK afro- urban scene.”
