Brownswood Launches Second "Future Bubblers" Music Discovery Program
The project speaks to the creativity, enterprise and vibrancy of music scenes bubbling under the surface of towns across the country
Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music have launched the second phase of their national music talent discovery project Future Bubblers.
The scheme will see the Brownswood team bedding into local networks to discover and develop the next generation of 'outside the box' musicians. Ten top talents, from songwriters to producers, rappers to scratchers, will be chosen and paired with mentors selected for their needs, whether that's help with their live shows, networking/business nous, or pushing their bounds musically.
Part funded by Arts Council England, the project speaks to the creativity, enterprise and vibrancy of music scenes bubbling under the surface of towns across the country. This year's focus cities are Sheffield and Hull, which will host launch events in June to introduce the initiative and provide an important audio reference, by means of exclusively curated live performances and DJ sets.There will also be a run of block parties and workshops to hammer home the Future Bubblers message which applies to audiences and music creators alike: music is and should be for everyone, no barriers.
Applications for the project will open in July and close in August. Anyone in England is welcome to apply. Meanwhile, the first year Bubblers candidates, including promising Nottingham Grime artist MC Snowy and the innovative Hull-based producer Revenu, remain deep in the mentoring process. There will be an opportunity to check in on how the Year One Bubblers have progressed with two "How Far We've Come" showcase events in London and Nottingham during the summer.
The Future Bubblers team will also be working closely with Hull UK City of Culture 2017, the organization behind next year's celebration of culture in the city. The Future Bubblers project will act as an important stepping stone towards the launch of this year-long program.
