For over a year, The British DJ & MC Academy have provided musical entertainment and a live PA set up for the Nike Powerleague 5-a-side football tournaments through out the UK. The tournament entitled ‘Own the Cage’ champions young footballing talent (and tekkers!) by challenging youth teams, the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspurs, QPR, Millwall to name but a few in competing in five-a-side football.

These determined and aspiring footballers have an incredible opportunity to take their game up a level when they play the final at the new Wembley Powerleague Site, unbelievably located in the shadow of the citadel of English football – Wembley Stadium. The tournament will take place on Sunday 8th May between 5 and 8pm.

The British DJ & MC Academy are pleased to announce that we will be supporting the Nike Powerleague Tournament  by bringing down, not just one, but two Bass Stations, accompanied by DJ TRICKLES & LADY MC! These eye-catching mobile DJ units will be playing out fresh tracks and vibrant beats to pump the players and the crowds full of morale and motivation.

As a bonus, the British DJ & MC Academy has teamed up in corporation with Nike to create a unique, one off Nike DJ & MC Academy T-Shirt which we will be giving away for FREE, so come down and grab yours while stock lasts!

This is a free event and anyone can attend, so if you love music and live for football it will be a great fun-filled day out for you, your friends and family.

Bass Station Hits the Streets of Hornsey

More than 25 young people from Hornsey have experienced what it feels like to be a DJ or MC for a day and discovered new talents as The British DJ & MC Academy’s mobile unit stopped at Campsbourne Road over the Easter holidays.

The two events were organised by Circle 33 Housing Trust in partnership with L&Q, Metropolitan Housing and Family Mosaic.

The events took place at Campsbourne Road, which is in the centre of a large social housing estate. During the sessions, the experienced and passionate crew from The British DJ & MC Academy was on hand to give the local residents of all ages the opportunity to try out their DJing, MCing, lyric writing and mixing talents in their mobile unit called The Bass Station.

Omari, 16, said: “I think the DJ & MC Academy is a great institution which allows young people to have an opportunity to! do things which the community does not provide. The DJ & MC Academy could be used as a distraction to pull youths away from crime. They effected my life by allowing me to get the message across about the black youth crime & justice system.”

DJ Trickles, who has been with The British DJ & MC Academy since the beginning, added: “We are the fastest growing youth arts organisation in London and the team is pioneering a new movement by channeling music through developing and promoting young talent, as well as helping young people to build confidence and to gain credibility. The event was a great success, everybody got really engaged had a good time.”

The events are part of an ongoing 12-week project and are organised by Circle 33 Housing Trust as part of a larger programme of learning and leisure opportunities to enhance the Life Chances of young people in the area.

Sussan Rassoulie, Community Development Partnership Manager for Circle 33, said: “We! know from our work with young people that many of them are interested in finding out more about a career in music, so are bringing the experts to them so they can have a go and find out more.

“We are very pleased with how everyone got together and involved. We are now hoping to raise funds to enable a number of the young people to take part in a recognised accredited course that can form part of their educational achievements.”
