SoundCloud rappers,artists getting signed from YouTube performances – self-built artists are on the rise and changing the game. And with so much talent emerging, at Spotlight we want this new generation of artists to get as much guidance and professional support as possible.

Introducing Spotlight Sounds Record Label, East London’s premier youth music label and artist development programme. Based in Lansbury Spotlight (by Langdon Park DLR) in our state-of-the-art studio, Spotlight Sounds supports London’s emerging young artists aged 11-19 to create, perform and promote their original music to a professional standard.

Between March 1 2018 and February 28 2019 we have had 3725 different young people attend our music programmes. Spotlight Sounds selects 10-15 young people who show musical promise and strong work ethic to participate in this exclusive music programme.

So whether you are a motivated rapper at the beginning of your journey or a seasoned singer looking for some professional support, this is the programme for you!

Within this programme you get::

  • Exclusive studio time on Wednesdays evenings where our music team will work with you one-on-one to record and produce tracks.
  • Artist mentoring to help develop your sound and talent.
  • Release campaigns across all digital platforms.
  • Public performance opportunities to showcase your tracks.



Since 2016 we have been recording, releasing and producing LIVE showcases for London’s most talented emerging artists.

We have worked with massive organisations over the last few years. 2018 saw one of our artists Jasmine2Safi interviewed by DJ Target on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show and her track Monotone was played live, while London Mayor Sadiq Khan also visited our music studios to participate in a music production session for the televised launch of his Young Londoners Fund.

2019 has looked similarly massive: with a day long industry training session from experts in the industry from Resident Advisor, and our Spotlight Sounds artists auditioning for grime’s version of the X Factor Da Come Up and  performing at All Points East festival to name only a few.

And if you don’t believe us, believe some of our past artists and collaborators…

“Spotlight has been a great support. They bring everyone down to watch the shows. It feels good, like you’re always a part of something” – Archna, previous Spotlight Sounds artist

 “I visited the Spotlight Centre…I wasn’t that surprised because the ends always represents but I was kind of blown away at the same time that there was some amazing talent in that building when we went down there” – DJ Target (on his radio show)
