This latest series of production masterclasses from B.A.D. follows on from the launch last summer, with a run that took in classes from Loraine James, Russell E.L. Butler, KMRU and rRoxymore.
In November, B.A.D. launched the Black Creative Database as a means of shining a light on Black creatives working in disciplines outside of music production and DJing, such as design, digital media and visual art.
