The Ministry of Sound has announced the first wave of members moving into its new collaborative workspace and private members club in London.

Tech firm Jukedeck, which is using artificial intelligence to revolutionise how people make and consume music, is one of four anchor members taking residency at 'The Ministry'.

Set to open in July 2018 and just a stone’s throw from the iconic nightclub in SE1, this ground-breaking project is a creative hub for those in the music, media, culture and tech industries.
 
The Ministry has received a huge amount of enquiries since announcing in March 2018, with confirmed membership levels well ahead of plan.

"The unprecedented demand for The Ministry just shows how great a need there is for a working environment tailored to the creative industries," said Ministry of Sound chairman Lohan Presencer.

“We are delivering a best-in-class environment and unparalleled added value by curating a hyper-connected community and sense of fun that Ministry is famous for. We’re also in negotiations with some major international brands; London is still the creative capital of the Europe."

Ed Newton-Rex, founder and CEO at Jukedeck, added: "As a business that builds tools for the creative industry, we jumped at the chance to become founder members of The Ministry, an exciting and authentic creative community in the heart of South London.
 
"We already work with some of the world’s most talented video creators, musicians and developers. 

"We’re looking forward to meeting even more of them at The Ministry – perhaps over a coffee in the courtyard, a cocktail in the bar or at one of the fascinating events already planned for 2018."

The other three companies confirmed are marketing agency HeyHuman; CrucialFX, which specialises in interactive immersive technology for live events; and MIDiA Research, a bespoke media and technology analysis company.
