The Prototypes to rinse out for 24 hours to support NHS
Drum and Bass |
Wednesday 8th April 2020 | Arren
The Prototypes are going in for 24 hours in aid of ‘NHS Charities Together’.
For a solid 24 hours, The Prototypes will be rinsing out some proper drum & bass and jungle in support of our legendary NHS. On April 17th, from 7pm, they’ll be streaming live from their Facebook page as part of D&BTV’s ‘D&BTV:Locked In’. To support the NHS, during the stream we can donate to the NHS through ‘NHS Charities Together’, helping them fight against Covid-19 with vital funds for essential supplies.
Speaking ahead of the stream next week, Nick & Chris of The Prototypes gave the statement below:
"As we are all aware - the situation across the world at the moment is frightening & uncertain - the rise of Covid-19 has left many in hospital fighting for their lives & sadly many have lost the fight - but there is always hope.
It’s difficult to know what to do in these times as everything can seem incredibly overwhelming but we both feel music can be a hugely positive force globally in whatever form it arrives - and after witnessing the legendary DJ EZ smash his 24 Hour UKG set we wanted to do something positive for our scene & for the crisis.
We are very excited to be able to do this & also nervous about the undertaking - we have been taken a back about stories of NHS workers both frontline & behind the scenes risking their lives on a daily basis to help loved ones & help keep us safe - if we can contribute something in someway to help the fight then we will both feel a huge sense of pride. We want to raise as much money as physically possible.
Now lets talk music - we have been overwhelmed by the response from the Drum & Bass scene so far - with artist & labels both supplying us with music from the last 20+ years & for us this is the perfect time to dive deep into the tunes & sub genres that we love that you might not associate with us - we intend to represent the Drum & Bass & Jungle scene to the fullest & we are honoured to be able to do it. D&B Soldiers & Junglists stand up.
Protect the NHS - Stay In, Stay Safe, Save Lives & Stay Locked."
The live stream is coming a few months ahead of their second album, Ten Thousand Feet & Rising. Due on July 31st, it features their current track 'Oxygen' which we can’t get enough of. Make sure you’ve got speakers out ready for this one as it promises to be a proper session of sick tunes. And don't forget to donate as much or little as you can, it will be hugely appericated by those out their working their themselves to the bone to keep us and our loved ones safe. Massive respect to the guys for doing this!! Also massive respect to all those working in the NHS!
