South Florida DJs Love Japan at Hollywood North Beach Park This Sunday
We don't need to remind you of the terrible ordeals currently facing the nation of Japan. The March 11 earthquake and subsequent tsunami destroyed large sections of the island's northeastern coast, leaving tens of thousands dead or missing. And as if that wasn't catastrophic enough, workers are still desperately attempting to contain a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, while seven-plus magnitude aftershocks further threaten the already precarious situation.
Over the last month, there have been significant displays of international support for Japan, not the least of which have come from the electronic dance music community.
Red Dot Relief, for instance, is a charitable effort spearheaded by DJ-producers Jay Haze and Seth Troxler of Visionquest in collaboration with the Crosstown Rebels label and other figures from the international EDM scene.
And now members of South Florida's EDM community have also come through with support for Japan by organizing a benefit show, South Florida DJs Love Japan, to take place this Sunday. It will showcase a variety of local DJs playing everything from house to drum 'n' bass. The full lineup includes DJs Basti, Chica Plastika, Countess Cucha, Deep Therapy, Hardline, Jon Mateu, Mario Liberti, Michelle Stevens, Robert Blackbox, and Transoverlord.
