Hackney’s very own Kojey Radical is supporting the launch of Hoxton Hall’s Beat Bank drive, a project designed to provide Hackney’s talented young musicians with more samples, beats and instrumentals to remix and rework in the studio.
The Beat Bank comes fresh off the back of Kojey’s work with the Hoxton Hall’s Youth Arts programme, where he has been offering in person song writing expertise and studio advice to young aspiring rappers as part of his role in the Dr. Martens Tough As You initiative – a mentorship programme that pairs established artists with emerging voices in music.
Determined to help level the artistic playing field and give back to the same community that supported the rapper on his way up, Kojey selected Hoxton Hall as his first mentee for the Tough As You initiative, remembering back to when the community venue offered him a platform as an unknown artist.
As Hoxton Hall’s current term of emerging musicians prepare to showcase their work at the venue’s annual Sound Out event on 31st March, hosted by Reprezent Radio, Kojey is now focused on making sure the artists on the programme continue to have material to experiment with.
Kojey and the Hackney-based venue are currently on a mission to supply the young artists on their development programme with an abundance of fresh, free material for them to experiment with in the studio and is asking all music makers to send beats and un-used material to Youtharts@hoxtonhall.co.uk.
Donate some stems and help to fuel a full circle creative platform offering support to the next generation of artists.
