Three months ago the studio of Blacksmith & Carasel was looted in a cowardly attack by a culprit as yet unknown. Now, using their influence within the Bristol music scene and Fundsurfer, they are looking to raise as much money as possible in order to re-establish their former studio, purchasing the necessary equipment needed to once again contribute their works to Bristol’s thriving music scene.
Blacksmith & Carasel said:
“In May this year we unfortunately had a break in down at our music stuidio and were robbed for over £7,000 worth of equipment which had been built up and collected over a number of years - items including a 17inch imac, Studio Monitors, Microphones, Keyboards, Synths, Drum Machines etc… If you would just like to make a donation towards the cause please just click pledge on this page and you can donate towards our rebuild without entering into any of our incentives. Anyone who pledges shall recieve a digital copy of Blacksmiths 'Old School, New School, No School Rules' Beat Tape as a thank you.”
The studio refurbishment undertaken by Blacksmith & Carasel is an open-ended crowdfunding project and as such they will benefit from any amount that is given on their path to recovery. They offer a variety of reward options for those who donate, from tickets to an exclusive Backlash club night at Thekla, to having a personal vocal recording mixed by Chase & Status Recording Engineer Rob Macfarlane. For those who wish to be part of such a worthwhile endeavour, you can donate here today.
