The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) and Metropolis Studios have announced a new record label which will be run by students, for students.
Metropolis Blue allows students to gain experience and insight into all aspects of running a label, from production to A&R.
ACM songwriters, performers and artists will benefit from the chance to get a professional release for their tracks, while producers, business and technical services students will have a hand in running the label and overseeing PR and launch events, branding and more.
Kainne Clements, chairman of ACM and owner of Metropolis Studios, said: ‘We promised more industry-based learning and connected opportunity than any other provider and I am both excited and proud to deliver on this by launching the new record label, specific to ACM, powered by Metropolis.’
Richard Connell, chief executive of Metropolis Studios, added: ‘Metropolis is renowned for sonic excellence, customer service and placing the artist at the centre of everything. We don’t just represent what the industry does, we are what the industry is doing, here and now, and I see it as a privilege to share this with the emerging talent that are the ACM students, from day one.’
