Introducing COME UP: a chance for N-Studio to shine a light on emerging creatives who our shaping our next generation. In our first project we spoke to SLOCAL, a collective of musicians and artists working together to make waves across the globe.
Meet Slocal, a music and street culture brand with a global network of musicians and creatives across various disciplines. Each connected to the undercurrent of subcultures in their respective cities and each adhering to the SLOCAL mantra and definition.
Slocal have been shaping the culture in the UK and around the world (and we really mean around the world from Berlin, Amsterdam to Dubai), from throwing events, creating music and collaborating with the likes of crepe city, Soledxb and having radio slots on Rinse fm. You can count on Slocal to connect the dots for like minded people worldwide.

What has been the most exciting project you have worked on?
Chennessy: When we did the SLOCAL sock drop on IG - we gave our supporters a chance to get their pair of SLOCAL socks delivered to them on the same day, personally from a SLOCAL member - all they had to do was place their order via the SLOCAL hotline which was on for a short limited time.
Event wise - SLOCAL at Dubai for SOLE DXB was pretty epic.
