Bath College’s music department is holding an end of year showcase to celebrate the success of its electronic music students in 2016.
Produced by Level 3 students in their final year at college, the showcase will include an exciting mix of sound and visual effects.
Industry professionals, performers, labels, producers and promoters will all be invited to meet students and listen to their work.
Later, guests are invited to an exclusive evening at The Nest’s Lounge Bar with back to back DJ sets from students and special guests.
Electronic music students have a regular club night at The Nest, giving them an opportunity to share their work with music fans.
Many students at Bath College go on to succeed in the music industry. In the last few years, staff have seen DJ Julio Bashmore sign a deal with record label Dirtybird and secure his own show on Radio 1.
Others signing record labels include singer songwriters Gabrielle Aplin, Laura Doggett and electronic musician Louis Sterling (AUXX).
Former student Max Goff is touring the world playing bass for Tom Odell, and Greg Feldwick (Slugabed) has signed to record label Ninja Tune.
Music lecturer Ginny Saunders said: “The college’s music department runs a variety of courses, in both performance and production.
“Staff at the college include a number of renowned DJs and producers – Adam Arkist, Badeshi, Raiden, KSP, Second Storey and Appleblim.
“Students have the opportunity to work alongside performers and songwriters, to record and release music, and to stage live events across Bath and Bristol.
“With this in mind, it’s no surprise that the college has established itself as a one-stop shop for musicians, producers and DJs who are serious about a future in the global music industry.”
The event takes place at Bath College on Thursday 26th May from 5pm to 8pm.
