‘Busy With Nothing to Do’ illustrates the therapeutic power of DIY culture

A new documentary highlighting Brighton’s DJ Brickcellphone’s creative journey has landed.

Off Licence Magazine acts as a medium for music taste makers Greg Stanley and Matt Leppier to share their favourite underground artists and to harness their creative energy.

A new documentary following Matt as he describes his battle with his mental health has just dropped and it provides a vignette into the life of the young creative. Created in association with BIMM it allows Matt aka ‘Brickcellphone’ to illustrate the importance of music and DIY culture in improving his health. Subsequently he’s become a mainstay in the south of England’s hip hop culture.

He’s DJ’d for Para Fiction, Kofi Stone and loads of other notable names, building genuine connections along the way.

When talking about how Offie Mag has affected his life he’s assertive.

“Music is a feeling. Music should give you something. When I’m on stage, I’m always getting something. Not sure what that is; but it’s never sadness” he said.

Directed by Jay Bartlett it tails Matt as he goes gets tatted, puts on shows in Brighton and hosts radio shows.

It provides a Vignette into how passion can drive change both internally and externally.
