The Marcus Intalex Music Foundation has been established to build on the legacy of the legendary drum and bass and techno artist who sadly passed away in 2017. And you can now play your part in its future by pledging your support.
Throughout his illustrious career Marcus was able to nurture and develop emerging talent through his Soul:r record label, with the likes of MC DRS, Dub Phizix, Chimpo, and DJ Marky featuring on the imprint before going on to widespread acclaim. He was also a champion for the city of Manchester, taking every opportunity to bang the drum for the city as his DJing commitments took him around the world and back.
This February MIMF will launch the first in a series of educational workshops & events to give the next generation of talent the tools and space to develop their craft. Over one weekend in and around Marcus’s beloved Manchester, aspiring musicians will be able to attend workshops, rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the industry and participate in music events.
Undoubtedly one of the world’s great music cities, Manchester, like many others, faces a battle to provide affordable access and dedicated spaces for up and coming musicians. MIMF aims to tackle this head-on and will provide a direct connection for aspiring musicians to some of the biggest names in the business. Some of Marcus’s closest friends and allies have already pledged their support; Goldie, Mary Anne Hobbs, Floating Points, Martyn, Dave Haslam, Actress and Children of Zeus are among those backing our cause.
MIMF is not-for-profit and all donations will be poured into the Foundation’s outreach work and mission. Everyone involved is very proud of being able to build on the legacy of the great man, and we thank you in advance for your contribution.
