Black Chapel is electronic producer Steve Mortimer. From Chelmsford UK Black Chapel weaves a love of deep grooves with melancholy harmonies and intricate atmospheres influenced from a wide range of genres.

He is currently working on a new AUDIO/VISUAL show, “CONNECT” part of ESSEX2020 and supported by Chelmsford City Council.

Connect is a critical multi-media project for our times.
Using unique performances from musicians, video artists, rappers, dancers and poets who form the Black Chapel Collective, we want to address, challenge and call for urgent action on Climate Change- which IS the number one issue we face today,
alongside the Global Pandemic which has impacted the lives of everyone this year.
It is not an understatement to say that The UN Climate Change Conference UK in November 2021 is the most important event in the World next year. We now have less than ten years left before we do irreparable damage to the Earth.
The Black Chapel Collective addresses these issues of climate change in the Connect Project. Already the Film Connect has won or been selected for over 15 International Film Awards.
The project has gained both the endorsements of Mercury Prize winner Talvin Singh OBE “Great work The Black Chapel Collective are doing at this challenging time in the world.”
Sky UK & World News recently interviewed Steve Mortimer about the project ,the impacts of Covid 19 and the bigger threat of Climate Change.
The first single Breathe ft. Rachel Brooks from the project was released in February this year. 

Black Chapel Collective recently signed a record deal with RemarQabl Records. The first fruits of that deal with be the 2nd single from ConnectTemple  featuring Lula Hemmings. An album will follow just ahead of COP26.
