We are getting recognised on a wider level and being approached by new people to deliver our great services. The biggest celebration of the year was our 10 year Birthday! We are still here and we are accelerating into the future.
We have also had celebrities like The Petebox, MC Spyda and Nicky Blackmarket perform under our roof.
2011 is looking to be as exciting with the new website planned and the big festival events. If anyone wants to come and have a look around you know where we are. Unit 1, Derwent Street, Belper, DE56 1UQ. Please come for a cup of tea :)
We'll see you all in the next decade!
HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED AND EVERYONE THATS HELPED US ALONG THE WAY !!

There is quite a few different tracks, that are produced to different states. There is some that are only intro's and others that are complete tracks. It's the perfect place to share our work in progress and finished music tracks.
We are planning on running competitions in the new year for re-mixes of different tracks we've produced for some of the media projects.
Looking forward to sharing our music.

This will be the 3rd generation of website we've had. This one is planned to have an online radio station and an online game. If what is being planned is all part of the final 3rd generation website it will take a while to design and build. We will keep you updated as soon as the work starts in the new year.

The usual silly party games came out, with pass the parcel of forfeits and other funny relay games. It was a great night. Hope everyone enjoyed it! We'll torture you again with the silly games next year. Hope you all have a good Christmas, and we'll see you all in the New Year.
The tracks that had been finished were meant to have a hearing on the fridays 'Safe Rave' unfortunately we couldn't fit it in properly. So we are definitely going to exhibit it at the next 'safe rave' in January !!

We've had The Youth Christmas Parties for years, so It was nice for the staff to also celebrate Breaking up for Christmas. We booked a table to Bengal Blues, then went to the Jasper and Conner Show at The Cross Keys across the road.
It was a really great night and we will definitely be doing it next year!
It's all exciting news to start next year with! We'll be looking at playing bands, dj's and also have a huge selection of workshops.
Fingers Crossed :)

This was the most talked about and the best 'Safe Rave' so far!
We had 112 Young People attend and everyone was inside dancing.
Nicky Blackmarket is one of the best known Drum and Bass DJ's and plays all over the world.
He Said "What You guys do down here is amazing!"

Some of the Young member's who had took part in the DJ Workshops from last year, had become resident DJ's at the 'safe rave' and supported Nicky Blackmarket this time. To some of them this is their idol, so they couldn't believe they got the opportunity to DJ along side him!

All the atmosphere of a real rave now, but in a completely safe environment.
Mr Blackmarket got taken back to the day of playing in tiny warehouses instead of huge hyper clubs and festivals.
And he loved it, the crown were so close to him and he was loving the response!
Some of the 112 Young people in attendance. The crowd was going wild! It was an amazing atmosphere!
The best and most used photo example already of the 'Safe Raves.'
Kit was the photographer who travelled across from wales to cover this 'safe rave.' He took some amazing pictures!

Our new website will have it's own online radio station build in. This will be the first stage, then once the shows start broadcasting we'll be able to start training other people up to set up online radio stations.

The story line of this film is very hard hitting, but it was agreed it had to be to get the serious message across. This will be the forth film we have produced with Filmcity. The others are all mockumentary / documentary dramas all with a sense of humor.
However this one is the first serious one, so will require a lot of thought.
The film production time is really tight as well, we have to have is all finished and edited by the end of January. The team will be meeting every tuesday and some wednesdays for this project.
We have approached a few local festivals to see what we can offer to them as an organisation, from youth DJ's to workshops and young volunteers.
Currently we have heard back of Mychoons and The Bearded Theory Festival.

They raised the money through the charity box labeled for the safe rave and selling burgers and hot food on the drop in open nights.
Well done to all the people who helped raise enough extra for this huge name DJ.
