An electronic music artist who lost all her possessions in the Croydon self-storage fire is appealing for help.

Cooly G, who releases music across a range of genres on the well-known Hyperdub Label, was in-between moving houses when fire broke out at the Shurgard self-storage facility on new year's eve.

The mother of two lost practically all her possessions as the blaze destroyed the 1198 unit warehouse, including the studio and DJ equipment she needs to pursue her livelihood.

Hyperdub label owner Steve Goodman, better known as kode9, started a gofundme page to help the musician get back on her feet.

It reads: "Cooly is a mother of two young children and her family have lost everything they owned.

"They were in the middle of trying to find a new home after losing their previous house due to a flood.

"The stress has been so intense she hasn't slept properly since the 1st of January.

"They are currently living out of a bag of clothes."

On top of her musical equipment the producer lost priceless personal possessions belonging to her children and expensive electronics.

Like a number of Shurgard victims, Cooly G claims the company misled customers and has dodged responsibility for their losses.

The insurance policy she was sold does not cover the extent of her losses.

The company's website suggests storage units could be "very useful" in a "period of mourning", while the terms and conditions of customer contracts state it is "strictly forbidden" to store "irreplaceable objects" or "objects with an emotional value."

Victims argue this is misleading, since the belongings of deceased relatives are more than likely to have special sentimental value.

In response, Shurgard has emphasised the terms and conditions expressly forbid the storage of such items.

Last week police closed their investigation into the fire, concluding their was no criminal cause.
