As the walls of the music industry shorten and opportunities for independent artists increase, getting music out to an audience has never been easier for musicians.
In the understandable rush towards creative autonomy and the opportunities that self-publishing has opened up, one vital aspect has been lost. For emerging artists, the experience, mentorship and guidance that transforms raw talent to recording artist is harder than ever to find.
One exception is the East London creative powerhouse that is Hot Money Studios Ltd.
For over a decade, the influence that the studio has wielded over the UK urban music scene is now legendary.
Shaping the UK's emerging artists for over a decade
With a client list that includes Stormzy, Stefflon Don and Krept & Konan; Hot Money Studios Ltd have built a formula of success that has as much to do with musical excellence as it does with their philosophy of educating artists in every aspect of the recording process, nurturing the artist's own, unique vision and providing the creative environment to succeed.
For the artists who come to Hot Money Studios, they come in with an idea and they leave as confident, capable recording artists with music they are proud of.
Hot Money Studios Ltd boasts state of the art, industry-leading equipment – all supplied by their partner, Kazbar Systems.
But it's more than the equipment that makes Hot Money Studios such a creative hotbed; it's the philosophy of empowering artists through building their confidence and studio knowledge and the commitment to ensuring everything from the energy in the studio to the environment they are working in is highly optimised to deliver the perfect creative platform – it's a formula that has seen Hot Money Studios Ltd continuously help artists succeed.
