One of the most important things for creatives is to have a place to express their creativity. For many upcoming and unknown artists it’s hard to get their work presented to the world and to be introduced to the right target audience.


When 7 Samurai Collective was launched in 2019 by a group of friends, it quickly became their mission to help other creatives and to make it easier for them to be discovered. 7 Samurai Collective gives these creatives the opportunity to grow as artists and to show their work on the right stage.

7 Samurai Collective consists of five domains; DJ Academy, artist management, events, video productions and branding. Every domain complements another. Our DJ Academy trains young artists to perform, whilst our artist management recruits them and helps them build their careers. By hosting our own events, we can directly give these artists a stage to perform. Our video productions and branding domain help our artists with creating their content, but may also be hired by other companies.
