Bassnectar and ‘bassheads’ Raise $100,000



We love a good news story here at DT so had our day considerably brightened by positive news regarding DJ, producer and philanthropist Lorin Ashton, better known as Bassnectar after the artist and his fans donated $100,000 from the “Bass Bank” aiding three charities that seek to foster and cultivate empowered and informed humans around the world. The concept behind his humanitarian work is to collect a “Dollar Per Bass Head” in which Bassnectar has donated one dollar of every ticket purchased to see him perform to the charity Air Traffic Control.

For those of you not familiar with the non-profit organization, Air Traffic Control go about enabling musicians to positively contribute to society by helping fund community based projects around the world. In further good news, we’re pleased to report that this is just the beginning of the charitable project and that once the ‘Bass Bank’ fund hits $50,000 then Bassnectar will then select further organizations for the fund to help with fans being able to vote for where they would like to go by visiting bassnectar.net. The winning charity receives $25,000, second place receives $15,000 and third place receives $10,000. This years’ winners were the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Contact USA

Keep up the good work Lorin!

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.
