MR AKA AMAZING had an amazing year in 2023, playing five gigs and releasing a new album. He played gigs at Club Soda, Avalon Cafe, Cafe OTO (twice!) and Bubble Club.
In December we released a compilation, PETROL GATE, of music made at The Gate between 2022 and 2023:
The compilation includes heavy metal anthems, punk scorchers, rock 'n' rollers, ballads, lullabies, hardcore techno bangers, good old house music, italo disco weepies, hip-hop belters and songs about travelling on the bus, Barry Manilow and Chelsea football club.
We handmade a large number of individual sleeves for the compilation:

The artist PZ came to The Gate to build dream houses with our artists. Some people made bricks, some people designed wallpaper, some people did interior design, some people added extensions to their existing homes. The workshop works will form part of a self-published PZ book, forthcoming in February.

Fashion designer Ashley Williams collaborated with The Gate for her hotly-anticipated SS24 runway show for London Fashion Week. The collaborative pieces featured in the show were created at a series of workshops hosted by The Gate.
We travelled to Islington in September to see the show which was held in a large underground concrete atrium, apparently a former music hall awaiting redevelopment. We arrived early to tackle the many stairs and got to see the fashionable people filling up the benches after us ready to watch the show.
