Just a Few More Hours to Apply for the EQ50 Mentorship Program

Recommended Posts

One silver lining in the middle of the #metoo movement has been that within drum & bass, many labels, managers and press outlets have begun to step up their representation of women. EQ50, the UK women’s D&B collective, has been working to provide support for female artists and those who want to get into the industry has been around since 2018 and they are constantly working to create a supportive community for “womxn” (the term they’ve coined for cis, transgender, femme and non-binary people). The collective is run by such D&B veterans as DJ FLight, Mantra, SweetPea and AlleyCat as well as MC Chickaboo and Jenna G.

Last month, EQ50 announced their biggest support project to-date, the EQ50 2020 Mentorship program. The collective will choose five “womxn” applicants to provide support in the industry for a full 12 months, but the program doesn’t just include advice. EQ50 partnered with five major labels for this project: Shogun Audio, Critical Music, RAM Records, Function Records and V Recordings. The labels will provide A&R sessions, production masterclasses, business/music industry classes, mentoring and industry representation and opportunities to work with the labels professionally.

If that wasn’t enough, EQ50 are offering their expertise and connections within the industry, including practice DJ sessions in world renowned UK clubs, a space for peer-to-peer support and music sharing, a booking agency masterclass with ESP International and lots of other support to learn and manage one’s career in the music industry.

This is a wonderful opportunity for women and “womxn” producers who want to break into the music industry but feel intimidated or overwhelmed. The requirements for entry are fairly simple are very straightforward and the last applications will be accepted online tonight at 11:59 pm BST (5:59 pm EST or 2:50 pm PST). If you or someone you know is interested, you’ve got just a couple more hours so check out the application now!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
