Jumpin Jack Frost, Ray Keith, Darren Jay and Micky Finn are among the drum & bass jungle legends joining forces this weekend for Set For Love, an online streamed event to raise money for children living in crisis in developing countries.
Kicking off 5pm this Saturday, December 19 on recent Drum&BassArena Hall Of Fame award-winner Frost’s MixCloud. The full line-up includes DJ Chef (who will be playing from the back of a London taxi!) and former Together resident Dirty Herbert and the event is part of a series of major charity fundraisers across dance music organised by the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life charity who have so far raised over £120,000 across three events throughout 2020.
With over 1500 DJs from over 80 countries uniting for these events – including Sasha & Carl Cox raising an impressive £40,000 last month on World Childrens’ Day – it’s now time for the drum & bass community to get involved. AWOL resident Darren Jay will be teaming up with Dirty Herbert to open proceedings with a special Balearic breaks set. For Darren, the causes Set For Love is raising funds for are close to his heart.
“I hope our community can come together to support these young people living in terrible conditions around the world,” he states. “I was in Uganda in February and have seen first hand the incredible job LNADJ do. I appreciate it’s been a tough year for everyone but these children are suffering more than most and if the DnB community can come together and donate just a pound or two each, the difference that will make is life-changing.”
“It feels good to see music bring people together,” his AWOL bother in arms Micky Finn agrees. “Especially after the tough year everyone has had. We can’t go out at the minute so we’ll entertain you, if you can find a few quid to support these kids at Christmas.”
Dig deep if you can: Set For Love takes places from 5pm this Saturday December 19 live on Jumpin Jack Frost’s MixCloud channel and you can donate via this Just Giving page. All proceeds raised will go towards grassroots projects in developing countries including Tanzania, Uganda, The Philippines and Nepal. These projects are focussed on creating a sustainable future for children, young people and their families and will be delivering food and water, education, safety and trauma rehabilitation.
