Resident Advisor To Cycle To ADE For Charity

We need to talk about cycling. No, don’t worry we’re not going to bore you with tales of Chris Hoy and co. pedaling away to win various different types of metal attached to ribbons, we want to talk to you about something far more important and altruistic. Setting off from their London office on October 12th, our friends over at Resident Advisor will be cycling 300 miles, across four countries, to Amsterdam for this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. This will be their first fundraising challenge as part of an annual commitment to supporting charities, good causes and music initiatives that they believe in. But it’s not just the nice folks over at RA that’ll be making the journey as they will be joined for the four-day ordeal, we mean ‘adventure’ by a selection of leading artists and industry figures.

But what is all this leg work in aid of we hear you cry? Put simply raising money for a worthwhile cause as the cyclists aim to raise raise €100,000 for Bridges For Music. Bridges is a charity rooted in the belief that music has the power to positively impact those less fortunate. Specifically, RA will help Bridges For Music in the bid to build a music school in Langa, a township just outside of Cape Town in South Africa.

Through the combined efforts of Resident Advisor staff, artists, sponsors and friends, they’re hoping to create the opportunity for children in the townships to be a part of a world that we love so much, and to create a self-sustaining legacy that will facilitate opportunities for future generations.

All funds donated to the Resident Advisor cycle will go directly to the Bridges For Music Langa Township Music School project.

So go on, do something nice and donate now at one of the links below.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
