Whilst some of you might be enjoying some well deserved time off, we’ve been working hard on how we can better serve you, our community of readers, curators, and collaborators, as a place where people and ideas grow 🌱

So it feels appropriate to host an intimate IRL + URL event on 16th September 2021 to discuss what we can do better, where we go next, and how you can get more involved … so if you’re interested in being part of the exciting next iteration of Protein, make sure you’re signed up here:


As Supplement subscribers, you get to hear the final episode of the current season before ANYONE else. This month, we have Charles Broskoski, founder of Are.na, discussing all things visual, crypto and community:


As the IRL vibes return, we show some love for ATW Records who’ve been making waves all summer - recently dropping a proper old-skool rave in a field near Cambridge. Listen to their recent mix for Balamii and follow Warehouse Raves for the next one ♥️





Until next month!

Your friends at Protein 💚


Protein is a place where people and ideas grow 🌱 We do this through our global community, agency, and studio space. We believe we’ve all got a responsibility to think and act bigger than ourselves and that "good growth" can only be achieved by balancing progress, profit, and purpose.

Yes, we really have published 682 issues of this newsletter. The first Protein Supplement was sent on 17th September 1997 to 14 people and (other than a few breaks over the years) has always aimed to distill what’s happening at the intersection of culture and technology into a concise and accessible digest. If you’re interested in digging into the (incomplete) archive, you can here.

You can also find us on Insta, Twitter, The Dots, Telegram, iTunes, and Linkedin. We always like to hear from you and how we can improve what we do, so if you want to get in touch about anything, please use this form.
