Pay him the Room Records grows and wants to leave the Room for a studio. It helps us to achieve an independent physical space where we can work more and better.

POQ Studio Project.

In just one year, Paga-o Quarto records managed to boost the Hiphop movement in Porto with the production of records, a festival, and concerts. Created by Keso (Marco Ferreira) and based on working in a room in a family home in a social neighborhood in the city of Porto, over 20 artists were recorded there, worked on design and communication for dozens of projects but always with strong limitations of space, noise and schedule.

Well, it’s time for PAGA-O QUARTO to move on to a bigger project, a studio, where we can build and create the necessary conditions for the production of Audio, Video and Photography. A studio where we can welcome artists and technicians without limitations of time, space or noise, creating new content and synergies with greater freedom. We have the material but we don't have the space, we need one. The results are already known, they are very practical.

6-month financing objectives:

  • Rent an office / warehouse where we can host Pay the Room and your website www.poq.pt
  • Create audio recording and processing studio
  • Create photo studio and visual production
  • Create studio for video Lives (Interviews, lectures and more)
