This weekend, thatDROP and Tyler, The Creative bring together different worlds of electronic music for a souped up live stream fundraiser for COVID-19 relief funds. Grab your favorite headphones, set up your in-home production (laser, projection mapping and fog machine), kick off your shoes and prepare yourself for a silent disco in the comfort of your own home.
Saturday, March 28 at 8:30 p.m. MT, Rome’s Frankyeffe and Denver’s Motion Trap and Willbeaux join up for a live stream takeover to aid COVID-19 relief funds.
The three artists will team up to each support a different organization and provide a one-of-a-kind experience for their fans who can stream sets by artists from two different countries at the same time and event. Viewers can make the most of the evening by seamlessly alternating between all three live-streams within the event page, as you would during a silent disco. EVENT PAGE.
The Artists & Funds
Italian melodic techno figurehead, producer and label-owner Frankyeffe is streaming his DJ set for the yam. Agency Fund which will support the underground electronic scene in Italy and throughout Europe. Frankyeffe has held down the stage at Tomorrowland Belgium and countless staple events in the darkest corners of electronic music while garnering support of a loyal following and big names like Enrico Sangiuliano.
Denver-based duo Motion Trap is live-streaming one of their much-loved, highly-danceable DJ sets in support of Inside the Orchestra. The donations raised by Motion Trap’s set will support the organization with its efforts to provide online music education. The variety of resources Inside the Orchestra offers, which include themed playlists and music games, fill a gap left by the closure of schools across the state of Colorado.
Rising Denver producer and DJ Willbeaux’s live-streamed set will support the staff members of The Black Box, a venue that brings some of the best underground electronic artists to the Mile High to perform intimate shows.
Unfortunately, this established independent venue has had to close its doors to help protect the public from the dangers of COVID-19, leaving its staff without jobs. Willbeaux’s first-ever live stream is supporting those crew members and will be the perfect opportunity to dance your Saturday night away until The Black Box re-opens its doors once again. You will also be able to catch Willbeaux at the next Northern Nights Music Festival.
The event is free to join but donations are appreciated. For updates about the Silent Disco, information on the artists and donation links for the charities, viewers can RSVP to the Facebook event.
