Huw's DIY Label of the Week: DV8 Music Collective
How, when, where and why was the label set up?
DV8 is a community organisation based in London and Brighton which specialises in training projects for young people in creative and media. The label was set up in 2009 as part of their music production course; the young people on the course are responsible for everything.
What's the ethos of the label?
The ethos of the label is to help promote young artists who may otherwise struggle to make music and get it heard. The label gives allows them to take control in everything from producing a track to marketing and releasing it.
What releases are coming out soon on the label?
The 'DV8 Music Collective sampler' is out on the 15th of February and there's a showcase on the 17th of February in Brighton.
What's the favourite office snack at your label?

And finally... if your label were an animal what would it be and why?
A monkey - because they're energetic and make loads of noise.
