309 studios - one of Leeds' well known music rehearsal and recording studio - have released a digital mixtape showing off some of the greatest musical talent found around Leeds and across the North of England.

The mix is part of 309 studios 5th birthday celebrations and aims to promote 10 artists based in the area.

Kev from 309 studios said, "Leeds is full of amazing bands, we want to help them get some extra exposure. Over the years 309 studios have been lucky to work with some brilliant musicians and we've also built up a huge number of contacts throughout the music industry - from the small independents through to global labels. Sometimes it's easier for a band to get heard if they're passed on as a recommendation".

The mix is free to download now and can be streamed below:
