Meet our Hip Hop Artistry Patron, Ron Elliston

22 January, 2020

Introducing one of our legendary Hip Hop Artistry Patrons, DJ and International Producer, Ron Elliston.

As a Producer and globally recognised DJ, Ron’s credits include P Diddy, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg.

He has been a musician in various bands and toured the world, having had long-term record deals with both Virgin and Sony Music. He’s worked with many musicians, from Paul Weller to Bootsy Collins. Ron is joining ICTheatre as Hip Hop Artistry Patron and will bring a valuable insight into the Hip Hop scene and culture.

He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise that has spanned an exciting and diverse career. He is connected across the globe and is looking forward to being a key mentor to our students

“This is the first time I have become aware of a course where somebody from a very young age might look and say ‘I want to go to university, because I want to do that course’ and that to me is amazing! These training professionals are going to see doors open to so many aspects of the entertainment industry.

Like the other Patrons here at ICTheatre, I will be hands-on to help give the opportunities and work placements to allow the experiences necessary to be industry-ready, whilst making sure the industry keeps heavily involved on a day to day basis. This will be the place where they will come to find our future leaders… and that is why I am so proud to be Patron of the Hip Hop Artistry Route.”
