So as a side project of SEMPLESIZE we run a small recording studio at our HQ. This space has been running for less than 6 months under the name Bed Rec Studio. As our first big project we had the pleasure of having The Push, which is a non-profit youth music organisation. As part of this the organisation runs a youth project under FReeZA, a youth training and mentoring program.
