Capital XTRA visit Raw Material

“Raw works a lot with people living with mental health conditions and I think that creative expression should be a right that everyone has” Shogun


Raw Material Music and Media is a creative community enterprise hub based in Brixton, London. They nurture raw talent and support the mental health of young people and adults through music and media pathways. The centre hosts recording studios, a computer suite, DJ, video production equipment and a live room for performance, workshops, and ensembles. The charity’s specialism is music as a creative tool for self-expression.

Capital XTRA Breakfast presenters, Robert Bruce and Shayna Marie, went down to Raw Material, to learn more about how their creative community inspires individuals.


Global’s Make Some Noise will fund ‘Raw’s Young Creatives’ for one year, a creative programme to support young people with mental health difficulties through music.

Some of the incredible individuals supported by Raw Material have produced a song especially for Make Some Noise, to thank people like YOU for donating and changing lives. Have a listen… 💙
