Excluded Ltd’s Rat Race Project 2015
The Rat Race project was tailored to fit the ESF community learning and skills grant, this project was all about work experience and has received endorsement by the DWP. We provided artists and producers with studio time to work alongside one of our skilled facilitators. We were fortunate to have on board a team of talented producers, Jedi aka Shaun Bailey, Nick Hutchins, Jake Semple and former UK Chart topper Daddy Wattsie. Jedi is known for his productions with DMX, Mark Morrison, and includes appearances alongside Alicia Keys and Nas. Nick Hutchins aka codek and Dj Minus -6 is known for his work on the ‘Rethink Your Mind’ project (a mental health charity patroned by Ruby Wax with generous support from Stephen Fry). Jake Semple aka ‘Jakeson’ a co directer of Excluded delivered clients some excellent instrumentals and facilitation of sessions (notably ‘Life Chronicles’ Dnb track ‘Kings’ , Hiphop for AC & Emro ‘Money on My Mind’ Grime for Mad Silance ‘The Devils on Crack’ Clients also attend meetings with guests from the music business, Nick Dunn CEO of Horus Music Ltd, John Meredith of Leicester College, John Buckby Head of Intellectual Property & Media Spearing Waite LLP.
