Calling aspiring musicians, designers, marketing gurus and music producers - our sister site O2 GoThinkBig have teamed-up with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental to remix and re-record Chic’s disco classic Le Freak - and you could be involved.
They are recruiting up to 100 young people to take part in the creation of this new version of the track. The opportunities on offer will give the successful applicants invaluable skills and work experience plus a chance to take part in a live performance at Indigo2 at London's The O2.
"There is still a large number of young people unemployed or out of education and feeling disconnected from society," explained Rodgers of his involvement in the project. "I know the feeling of rejection from when I started out. I want to change that feeling. Rudimental and I have joined forces with GoThinkBig to offer up opportunities to remix Le Freak and give them, possibly, their first career experience. I’m looking for the freaks. I’m looking for super passionate and talented 16-24 year-olds to remix my most successful song – Le Freak. You name it, we want it. We’re also looking for people behind the camera to record everything we’re up to."
Split into categories of studio, live show and promotion, each job role will be mentored by an industry professional, so not only will you be able to learn on the job, you will have someone giving you advice who you would never normally gain access to.
So if you’re aged between 16 to 24 and eager to take part there are roles including dancers, engineers, writers, stagehands and art directors are up for grabs.
For full details and to apply head to Gothinkbig.co.uk/Freaks before 8 September.
