A variety of tools and platforms have allowed artists and industry professionals to collaborate remotely, but real-world meetings are also important, especially the serendipity that can arise from them. That’s part of the logic behind Qube, a new co-create space that will open in West London in January.
The membership-based complex has been set up by music producers Nicholas Sonuga and Amin Hamzianpour and the 22,000 square-foot premises will have 30 recording studio spaces as well as number of meeting spaces. It will also host music events and industry panels, the sell being that is a place where musicians and industry professionals can meet and collaborate.
Founding members include Krept & Konan, Riz Ahmed, Amir Amor from Rudimental, Concord Music, AEI Group and Nikhil Shah (co-founder of Mixcloud).
Membership fees start at £100 a month and applications to join are now open. It joins The Rattle, which has spaces in both London and LA, and is focused on bringing musicians, producers, industry professionals and tech startups into one space.
