converse rubber tracks

 Following the huge success of the Converse Rubber Tracks Amsterdam pop-up studio at Amsterdam Recording Company earlier this year, the series returns for its third instalment. From 7th – 16th October 2015, free recording time will be made available to selected local musicians. Artists can apply online from 3rd – 16th September 2015 on for a chance to record original music with a team of skilled studio professionals as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks programme.

 Leading up Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the recording sessions will run for a ten-day period at the Amsterdam Recording Company located on the Java-Eiland in the north of the city. Emerging artists – curated and hand-picked by Red Light Radio – will record original music for a full day in an advanced, state-of-the-art studio under the guidance of expert technicians. Artists will retain all rights to their work. ADE will also host a special Converse Rubber Tracks Live, where an established international producer will select Converse Rubber Tracks artists to support them.

The extensive Converse Rubber Tracks programme was born out of the brand’s desire to give back to the music community and provide a useful platform for emerging artists to express their creativity. Since the brick-and-mortar studio opened in Brooklyn, New York in July 2011, Converse Rubber Tracks has provided over 1,000 emerging artists with the opportunity to record in a state-of-the art studio at no cost, hosting musicians in Brooklyn, as well as in short-term pop-up studios throughout the U.S., Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

Applications:    Thursday 3rd – Wednesday 16th September
