Having already taken over two London boroughs in 2015, Converse Rubber Tracks London now has its sights set on a new domain: Tower Hamlets.
Following on from the residencies that previously took place in Haringey and Ealing, the event has now moved a little closer to the Thames to offer new-and-upcoming bands the chance to record in their local area.
Running across two weeks - from 14th to 27th November - the recording sessions will take place on Lightship 95, the infamous studio that sits on the River Thames’ Trinity Buoy Wharf.
Each of the fourteen acts selected - who will be chosen by a panel comprised of Femi Adeyemi, founder of radio station NTS; Frank McWeeny of The Young Guns Network; and Paul Benney, the founder of Dummy and Brille Records - will be given the chance to spend a day in the studio recording with engineer Al O’Connell, before being allowed to retain the all of the rights to their work.
For a chance to record as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks London programme, artists can apply online at converse-music.com/london.
