Support our independent work

In 2015 we set out with a goal to help Scotland’s young DJs and producers achieve their goals within electronic music.


In just 5 short years we had turned the studio into a thriving home from home for Scotland’s up & coming talent, whilst also having the opportunity to deliver creative and mindset based programmes in Schools and charities across Scotland’s central belt. Due to our commitment to the cause, we had just received accreditation from the biggest DJ equipment supplier in the world - Pioneer DJ - before the pandemic hit. We are now the only Pioneer DJ accredited DJ school in Scotland.


As with most music venues and studios, the pandemic has decimated our revenue streams. We don't have cash reserves, but what we do have is sheer determination to reopen our doors with our full team of staff still in place once this is over! But we can't do it without your help. By becoming a SKapade Subscriber you can help us continue to bring future opportunities to the youth of Scotland through our work in schools, charities, and in house at our music production and DJ focused studio whilst receiving some exciting monthly benefits in return.

We want to keep providing first-class electronic music education in Scotland's communities & beyond

Make a one-off contribution

If you would like to support our work but are unable to commit to a rolling subscription, you can make a one-time contribution to the continuation of our work.

SKapade's award-winning work faces a significant threat from the coronavirus pandemic.

As an independent company with limited sources of external funding, our studio services have been funded primarily by members of the public paying for face to face learning at our Dumbarton based studio. Due to non-essential offices being closed for over 5 months now and still not being allowed to officially open alongside tight restrictions in schools, the coronavirus pandemic has decimated our revenue streams.


Now, we need your support.
