FLOOR SIXX is a project run by Sian Anderson and Jason Black (J2K). Today we are lucky enough to be part of ‘The Floor Sixx All Dayer’ on 20th October.
40 students were hand picked by the FLOOR SIXX team from all over the UK to take part in the FLOOR SIXX Music Academy down at Red Bull Studios, Vevo and Livity HQ. The courses were curated by Artist, producer, DJ, presenter, PR, journalist, photographer, videographer, events coordinator & project managers and offer students industry experience from professioanls such as including singer/ songwriter Roses Gabor (Gorillaz – Dare), videographer Kavadour Peterson (J Hus – Common Sense) events manager Dean Attil (Stamina Parties) photographer Vicky Grout (Clash/ Notion/i-D)
The day kicks off with a videography, photography and journalism exhibition. The exhibitions will showcase “Shoot the Shooter” pieces, showcasing what went on behind the scenes courtesy of Vicky Grout, Ashley Verse and Courtney F Photo across the ten weeks. The videographers will be screening their documentaries before having public a Q&A with Jamal Edwards (SB.TV) and Rashid Kasirye (Link Up TV). Journalists will exhibit their very own ZINE, exploring what it means to grow up in Britain this 2017, with features on british music, fashion and lifestyle.
The final leg of the day is a concert featuring Chip, Kojo Funds, Sir Spyro & Friends, SNE and Afro B alongise the Floor Sixx mentors hosted by Remel London. After the days activities Kenny Allstar, Jeremiah Asiamah, Ralph Hardy, Selecta Suave and Last Night In Paris will take over Lock 17 for the after party, celebrating the end of FLOOR SIXX Music Academy 2017.
“Performing on the night we have Yus, DNZO, Chyna, Hilary, Yung Bush and Jas, they are our FLOOR SIXX artist mentees and a great representation of some of the newest and most exciting talent to come out of the U.K. Our DJ students will be spinning all day and our presenters are going to take turns at co-hosting alongside Remel London. It’s a 3000 capacity venue so a big task, but between the events & PR team, project management team and journalists, they will pull it off! Expect to see some amazing photography and videography from the students on the day too, some super exciting stuff!” – Sian Anderson
