ThisIsTmrw have been at the forefront of FUTURE music in the city for many years now (I remember Lewes Herriot’s posters in The Victoria over 5 years ago and wondering who on earth these promoters were, where they’d come from and who the hell they were going to put on next). Here’s a mix we did for them a while back: http://www.thisistmrw.co.uk/2011/05/27/thisistmrw-mix-12-free-school/

This probably won’t get a play but I likes dis a lot:
