Pie Factory Music x Raw Material Studio Exchange

As part of our Thanet Emerging Artists Programme, funded by Youth Music, 5 of our Young Producers and a Senior Member took part in a studio exchange with Raw Sounds – a music programme for young people with mental health illnesses based at Raw Material in Brixton. On Saturday 8 September 2018, the group from Pie Factory Music travelled to Brixton to start producing tracks with the Raw Sounds group and practitioners, and on Saturday 15 September the group from Raw Sounds came down to Ramsgate to finish the tracks with Pie Factory Music participants and practitioners.

Listen here to the finished tracks from the exchange: ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Town to City’ – great work guys!
