Chem19 is a recording studio founded by members of the Motherwell band The Delgados.

They are one of the most well respected recording studios in Scotland and most of the country’s biggest bands have recorded there at some point. They also run a record label called Chemikal Underground.

Chem19 run a couple of projects that young people can get involved in. The first is their Demo Fund, which gives young bands the opportunity to record a demo in their world class facilities. The second is their SoundLAB course, which gives young people between the ages of 16-25 the chance to learn how to be a studio engineer and work in a recording studio from the guys that actually run the studio!

As the project develops we might even find ourselves working with the folk from Chemikal as they are keen to be a part of what we make together!
