In 2018 On Da Beat Studio participated in a charity project for to raise awareness around freedom of speech and support a charity that provides a creative outlet and qualifications for young people in London.

GottiOnEm, MKThe Plug and SapphireBeatz under the care of On Da Beat Studio provided the production, recording and engineering for a song titled “Political Drillin“.The Song was performed at a world first event which formed the meeting of the Drill music scene and the High Art world. All proceeds from the event and record sales were donated to Brixton Wings, a charity providing access to musical equipment that enables children and young people to learn and create without feeling restricted by their financial or social circumstances.

The event featured “the Young Blood” installation by Molodkin, a live performance by the musicians and a limited number of exclusive vinyl records & the world premiere of music video of the song performed by UK Drill artists Skengdo & AM & Drillminister with the video cut by artist Andrei Molodkin.

Brixton Wings is a parent led community grassroots organisation and charity with an emphasis on providing after School and Early Intervention programmes for children and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.
