Meet Danni, your Electronic Music tutor and curator of this week’s sensational #WeekendWaves playlist! “Hi I’m Danni, your local friendly neighbourhood Electronic Music tutor. I’ve always been into songwriters and beats so my playlist hopefully represents this. Plus my mums and pups are massively into their music so I’ve tried to give them a little voice in this too. The tunes I’ve chosen are a combination of artists who have influenced my sound and people who I think are dope.” Do some stretching and conserve your energy, you’re going to need it for all the dancing you’re about to do.

Creative Spirit is in session! 
Last week our students had the opportunity to build their own synths, and wow! What an amazing day! 
The workshop saw the students come together to help each other out, and provided a great hands on activity with beautiful synths to keep at the end of it.

Did you know that we have a weekly playlist? 
It’s true! Our #WeekendWaves drops every Friday, and is curated by a different member of our lovely staff each week. “Hey hey I’m Lizi, originally from Manchester and not leaving anytime soon! I proper hope you enjoy my playlist, I can’t say my music type goes down well in the office so headphones sometimes have to do. A lot of this playlist consists of Manchester artists, but a couple others are thrown in there too. Manchester music is literally popping off right now, and to be honest I spend most of my breathing hours refreshing GRM Daily. Anyway I hope you enjoy x”

If you want to check out Lizi’s #WeekendWaves, or anyone else’s, check our ‘Spotify’ stories highlight! 
And make sure to tune in every Friday around 4 for that week’s playlist release. See you then🕺🏼

A couple of weeks ago we had the honour of hosting Julie Campbell, better known as @loneladyhq, in our Charlie Jones Live Venue so she could prep her supporting act for @neworderofficial July 18th show in Bristol.

We were able to squeeze in a few minutes with the inimitable artist to chat about her work, her last album: Hinterland, and what drives her.

Check the link in our bio to read the full interview 🤘🏻

A couple weeks ago we did some much needed maintenance on our Neve Console located in the Spirit Studio.

This bad boy has about 12 THOUSAND capacitors in it, so we like to do maintenance every 6 months or so to keep it running in top condition. 
If you liked this, keep your eyes peeled during the week of August 19th because this was just the appetizer. The main course will be much bigger 👀
