Batu launches new free-to-access community music studio in Bristol, First Light Studio

It kickstarts with a series of intimate workship sessions in July

Producer, DJ and Timedance founder Batu has launched a new community music studio, First Light Studio.

Having opened its doors today (May 20th), the new, free-to-access studio at the Trinity Centre in Bristol aims to level the playing field for local artists by providing access to an open and inclusive space, professional equipment, and support to develop their skill set without the financial boundaries present in today’s music industry.

Kickstarting the initiative - which is supported by Dr. Martens - is a series of intimate workshop sessions with Hodge, Elder Island, Mix Nights and Sir Hiss in at the Trinity Centre in July.

“So many people have helped me along the way and I've received a huge amount of support from the community around me," says Batu. "Privately renting a studio is an expense that is prohibitive for a lot of up and coming artists, and there should be more access for free."

"I’m really proud to bring First Light Studio to life with the support of Dr. Martens, and help give Bristol’s talented network of up and coming artists the support they need.”
