If you’re going to buy one album this week, please make sure it’s Beat ALS.
Not only does it feature awesome tracks from bona fide bass and beat bubblers such as Bassnectar, Au5, Buku, ill Gats, Mr Bill, Machinedrum and Psymbionic.
Not only does it feature contributions from the top of the very premiership such as BT, Richie Hawtin and Nicolas Jaar.
Not only does it feature this very UKF upload…
Much more importantly than any of the above, every penny and cent invested in Beat ALS goes to an incredibly important cause: Every90Minutes.
Every90Minutes was established by Livid Instruments founder Jay Smith. In May this year he was diagnosed with ALS. The disease many of us drenched ourselves in ice cold water for recently, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – or motor neurone disease as it’s known here in the UK – is a fatal disease that affects the ability to speak, move and breathe. It is truly devastating and every 90 minutes in America someone is either diagnosed with the disease or dies from it. Jay has founded Every90Minutes to raise as much awareness and research funds as possible. Read his story. His attitude is a blueprint for how to be a positive, progressive human.
Beat ALS – released on Gravitas Recordings – is one of many Every90Minutes projects and it should resonate with all music fans. 16 tracks from some amazing artists, many of which are exclusive to the collection, check this tracklist…
