Drum&BassArena, AudioPorn, Rupture, 1985 and The North Quarter have all linked up with womxn and non binary drum & bass collective EQ50 for their second mentoship scheme.
Announced this week, the organisation founded in 2018 by DJ Flight, Mantra, MC Chickaboo, Jenna G, Sweetpea and Alley Cat promises “more mentoring, more inclusion and better diversity” with this year’s campaign as they invite female-identifying and non-binary artists to submit their tracks and profiles via their website.
Open to artists across the globe, the mentorship is producer-focused and the each successful mentee will be guided and tutored by one of the above-listed labels that’s most suited to their sound. With Drum&BassArena, AudioPorn, Rupture, 1985 and The North Quarter flexing across the D&B spectrum, all highly active and at the top of their game, it’s an exciting opportunity for all hopeful candidates.
The EQ50 2022 mentorship follows one of the most successful and high profile campaigns of its kind in electronic music. Launched in 2020 with labels such as Function Records, Shogun Audio, V Recordings, Ram Records and Critical Music, mentees Nia Archives, Mandidextrous, Spectral, Anikonik, Charla Green and Athena have all gone on to set incredible new benchmarks in the game.
Levels set high, it’s now time for the class of 2022. The application closing date is November 1 23.59 GMT. Good luck to all artists who enter, you can find full details on the EQ50 site. Check Sweetpea‘s video for some some crystal clear advice and tips on how to make the best submission…
