         "LOVE MUSIC. 

                       BE BOLD."

Is the mantra we live by at Dusty Studio Productions. We believe that every artist's journey is unique and deserves time, attention and care to really take a career to the next step. We're driven and focused to provide the best independent music management, events and blogs!


Notorious for our theme nights 'All Funked Up', 'Into Indie' and 'Brighton Rock', as well as our bespoke Artist Release Shows, we are proud to independently promote music across the city of Brighton and Hove. Dusty Studio Productions showcase talented up-and-coming musicians, and let attendees soak in the vibrant music culture that exists in Brighton. We help the emerging artists from the bottom up, focused on developing their career. If you want to be a part of one of our gigs, or are looking to put on your own - get in touch!

We provide one-to-one, 24/7 management to a small selection of bands and artists that we think have the potential to go far.

Our DSP Blog will direct you to the best tunes and events the music scene has to offer! We aim to engage and network the artist, promoter and audience by giving exposure to the best up and coming names within the music industry. If you are interested in a feature on our blog, please don't hesitate to send an email to
