Brixton is my barometer
”I feel very fortunate that one of the last gigs I attended before the March lockdown was a benefit for Deptford’s excellent Midi Music Company, held at the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street.Various students, alumni and other associates of the organisation took to the stage throughout the evening. A succession of talented MCs and singers got the party started before the excellent Barbarella’s Bang Bang switched things up several gears.”
In Good Company
“In February MMC celebrated their 25th anniversary with a big party at the 100 Club sponsored by music industry lawyers Lee & Thompson who have chosen The Midi Music Company as their Charity of the Year for 2019-20. There were over 200 guests including managers and producers, with performances by numerous patrons and alumni including an acoustic set by Skin, a DJ set by DJ Ng and a set by Oggie. ‘It was such a great night and feels all the more special given what has happened since’ says Wozzy.”

A Trip To The Midi Music Company
”MMC is a charity organisation ‘inspiring creative minds’ and this was clear to me even within 5 minutes of being there. It has an excellent community feel; the fact it offers after school music & dance lessons, recording studios on site, and experienced staff members, and even a kitchen, makes it all the more a rarity in a dog-eat-dog society.”
Gig Review: Deaf Rave
”It’s difficult to know what to expect from a deaf rave. Do deaf people listen to music? If so, how do they experience it? Half of legendary, award winning DJ duo The Wideboys had a slot later on in the night. He showcased the slick, polished abilities of a seasoned pro in his element. There was a garage vibe to this portion of the rave – a subset of electronic music, which has aged well and still gets people moving. All in all, Deaf Rave was the perfect marriage between devastating dance jams and a buzzing community atmosphere.”
