New L.A. Recording Studio Residency To Help Develop Emerging Artists
The creative collaboration between Australian tastemaking indie label Future Classic and data storage provider Dropbox continues with their announcement of plans to partner for a Los Angeles studio residency program for emerging artists.
The two companies began their collaboration last year, opening a studio together in L.A.'s Frogtown neighborhood. For their new residency, they'll be selecting two artists to receive two weeks of studio time and industry mentorship with flights included.
"We're so excited to be partnering with Future Classic for the second year in a row, this time with a program that leverages Dropbox Paper as a tool for artists to express themselves and communicate how they are so much more than the music they create," said Dropbox head of brand partnerships Liz Armistead. "The Future Classic x Dropbox Studio continues to be a great place for artists to connect and collaborate, and the Studio Residency will allow up-and-comers to leverage technology and mentorship that they wouldn't otherwise be able to access."
Future Classic's roster includes GRAMMY winner Flume, GRAMMY nominee SOPHIE and Aussie electronic duo Flight Facilities. They also just released the new album by Nick Murphy (formerly known as Chet Faker), Run Fast Sleep Naked. Together in their shared creative studio with Dropbox, they've hosted a wide variety of artists including Moses Sumney, JPEGMAFIA, Glass Animals, Aloe Blacc and more.
We're throwing a FREE party in collaboration with @Dropbox to celebrate @futureclassic's new Studio Residency program at the #FutureClassicxDropboxStudio in LA. Catch @chromesparks, Late Verlane + more TBA at @Moth_Club on 14th May

Future Classic founder and CEO Nathan McLay adds, "The partnership with Dropbox has been incredibly organic, we share the same ethos when it comes to creative collaboration, and we're delighted they are as intrigued as we are to experiment with new technology and create opportunities for artists. We've always been inspired by discovery and creative-driven artist development so I can't wait to start digging through the artist submissions and see where it leads."
In celebration of the new studio residency, Future Classic and Dropbox will be hosting parties in L.A., London and Sydney. For more information and to apply, visiting the project's website.
