The bustling streets of Brixton are full of music, art, markets, poets, radicals and preachers. Alex Wheatle, the Brixton Bard, takes you on a journey around the area he first discovered in the 1970's when it was vibrating with reggae baselines and the smog of uprising was in the air. Follow him through Brixton's legendary market and round its diverse and vibrant streets.
"Soundmap's audio tours offer a very personal perspective... It's a way of becoming immersed in an area, a bit like being in your own film complete with a soundtrack." (Time Out London)
"Walking, ipods and London trivia are the holy trinity as far as Londonist is concerned. The three have reached conjoined perfection in Soundmap." (Londonist.com)
"London has such a wealth of history and things to do, that it can become a little bewildering for visitors. Even for seasoned Londoners like myself, it's always surprising how little we actually know about this great city. Soundmap offers a solution." (Journeylist.com)

Good in essence
I find it very good that a real Brixtonian describes the walk, but it’s now over ten years old and things do change in such long periods. Woolworth for instance is long gone.
For that it’s too expensive, but can recommend for learning about Brixton in general.
