Millie Boxall-Kalvis | Producer
I am a producer at Reprezent Radio and Currently I am organizing the first FABRICATE EVENT - Bringing the best up and coming UK street wear brands together for one day, to promote and sell their wavey clothing. My mad city and the mad people in it inspire my work - our unapologetic generation. I love seeing how others have been inspired by their surroundings and have produced amazing art because of it – in many circumstances being able to turn negative situations around so that they have positive outcomes. I think I just appreciate what everyone’s doing right now and the fact we're all quite willing to help each other out rather than being greedy about success. Which is why really I just want to bring a load of genuine and creative people together to celebrate what we're all about through the clothes we wear and music we listen to! I love being around creative people and seeing them progress and develop. I’ve never really wanted to be the front man, I much prefer to work behind the scenes. I’m not saying that I’m just trying to jump on people's bandwagons, I just like being able to see or hear something and go “ooo I know who would like that- let me get them to link up”. Really I feel like I’m at the start of my journey. I'm finding new reasons to love what I do all the time as I experience new things and meet new people. My advice would be to be prepared to make sacrifices for your art - time, relationships, money… but always keep a strong team around you. As much as we like to think we can do it all on our own, the people we have around us have so much to do with our progression. Stay real with what you do. it’s too easy to fake stuff nowadays- but if you keep it real, you won’t just gain your 15 minutes of fame, you will obtain longevity - and that’s true greatness.
