UNITING TOMORROW’S UNDERGROUND TALENT AND TODAY’S MOST INFLUENTIAL BLACK MUSIC CULTURE LEADERS UNDER ONE ROOF…
We’re back! On September 4th, the Industry Takeover All Dayer returns to east London, jam packed with panels, masterclasses and 1-2-1 sessions. From the underground up, create your own path in the music industry.
With more details soon to be released, UD are hyped to announce this year’s Industry Takeover media partnership with TRENCH. Co-founded by grime scene stalwarts Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson and Laura ‘Hyperfrank’ Brosnan, via their website and print publications, TRENCH focus on the preservation of Black music culture, past, present and future. And together, we’ll be programming something extra-special for 2021.
“The TRENCH team are looking forward to collaborating with UD this summer on a 20 Years Of Grime special at the Industry Takeover All Dayer. UD have been a prominent voice in the Black music space for many years, so this link-up was just meant to be.”
Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson (Founder, TRENCH Magazine)
