The Basement is an inclusive community made up of people from all walks of life with an array of backgrounds, struggles, dreams, jobs and talents. What started as a small group focused on driving discussion around streetwear trends has evolved into a multichannel youth movement with over 300,000 members across the UK and beyond.


The Basement is now a platform engaging and empowering young people across a broad range of topics, from fashion and music through to art, politics, travel and more. At the core of the Basement sits an ethic of respect, taking care of one another and collaborating to further our aspirations.


Our digital publishing platform, BasementApproved delivers daily stories for the community by the community. Covering youth culture from the underground up.
