Get trusted feedback on your music.

We run camps for producers from all over the world because production is a solitary craft. Working with other people is not only more fun, but it's also the biggest catalysts for success. There is a team of people behind every great record.


That’s why FFWD Complete and Ultimate include lifetime access to an exclusive members-only community of dedicated producers who are turning their passion into their life. We're also there to give our personal feedback and support.

Real opportunities for you and your music

Notting Hill Music regularly place tracks with labels like Black Butter (Gorgon City, Clean Bandit, Sub Focus), Ultra (Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris) to mention just a few.


We also be drop in live briefs that come in from established labels, and acapellas from professional writers who are looking for productions.


We're partners with one of the world's leading independent music publishers and members of the FFWD community can submit their tracks to be considered for development and publishing deals.

That’s why we’ve called this course FFWD and designed it to get actual results.

Do you really need to buy more plugins and kit ?

We asked a number of producers what they purchased over a year to help them make music. It totalled well over £3k (each) and that was just on plugins, synths, controllers, gear and upgrades.


It’s fun to have some toys but thousands of producers keep buying more plugins and kit thinking it's going to help them make better music. We've been there ourselves and it doesnt work!


About Us

Hey, we're Marc & Andrew and we help music producers collaborate and realise their musical ambitions. We have worked with producers from all over Europe to get their tracks signed to labels, land remixes, gigs and self publish their work.


We run the world's only accelerator for music producers at Tileyard Studios. Described by The Times as London's Hit Factory, it's home to The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson, Chase & Status, Sub Focus and many more.

As someone who had only bought and produced music I had absolutely no idea how everything worked behind the scenes. But understanding the music business alone isn't enough...


I was so determined to make music my life, I got a job working for Universal Music. I know what you’re thinking: “Who cares about major labels?” but I learned how artists get discovered, marketed across the world and propelled to success.

I've worked as a professional remixer with one of my tracks appearing alongside Maya Jane Coles on the legendary Decca Records - the label that signed the Rolling Stones. My music has also been featured by Hed Kandi and reached #1 in the Dance World Radio Chart. This is all through following what we teach in FFWD.

Marc Langsman

Andrew Consoli

Becoming a music producer was always my dream and I figured out that to turn my passion into a sustainable career I had to learn multiple skills and work exceptionally hard.  Following many of the techniques which we’ve explained in FFWD, I’ve had tracks featured in Mixmag and released by labels such as StoneBridge’s own imprint. They’ve received support in DJ Magazine and by leading producers such as Joachim Garraud, Paco Osuna and Markus Schulz.


I love helping other producers create and I’m hired by companies like Sample Magic to make sounds which are used by thousands of producers in all corners of the world. Some of my packs have reached the very top of the Beatport Sounds chart.

At the start of my career the music industry felt inaccessible and like a complete mystery. That's why we started BeatCamp.


Marc and Andrew have been instrumental in helping me to take the first steps in getting my music 'out of the bedroom’. Through their experience and connections in the music industry, they have been an invaluable source of knowledge and networking opportunities. Whether giving feedback on mixes or helping writing biographies for press releases, they have helped at every stage of the process.

Gold VIMA and 2015 VIMA Award Winning Producer

Marc and Andrew have given a boost to my music career and helped me get more tracks signed, through sharing their knowledge and putting me in touch with other producers and contacts in the music industry. They know their stuff!

Marc & Andrew have given me loads of advice and strategies for contacting and creating dialogue with labels. Marc even put me directly in touch with a label that has subsequently released one of my remixes.

If at any point during the course you feel there's something we've missed then let us know. We want you to get the most out of this and we review all feedback personally.

But I just want to make music!

I already have releases, is this for me?
