By Event Previews and Reviews, Events, Events Previews, News, Uncategorized

Ever wondered what happens when you double drop the red pill and blue pill? You end up at a 20 hour marathon with Real Gang’s finest of course.

Their sterling reputation for everlasting parties continues this weekend with some of our favourite selectors in attendance on the controls. This one has all the ingredients to be an extra special affair. Some of the labels closest and dearest are on the line up including Alci, Reiss, Maher Daniel and a very special b2b set from Cosmjn and Lizz to name a few.

The Summer has proved to be a busy time for Real Gang with showcases across Hide and Sneak Festival, PATTERN, TRMNL and Weetamix to name a few as well as a string of well received releases for Miller on the likes of Dailyacid, OFF PATH and more. It’s no surprise that the lads are going from strength to strength at the moment.

 

Those who went to their last party across Gorilla and South know this is a recipe that just works. 20 hours of music across two of Manchester’s most respected underground venues. Add a clued up crowd full of like minded individuals and A* soundtrack. It’s safe to say this weekend is looking spot on from the off.

 

See you on the dancefloor!

Serialism & MEOKO present: Save the Amazon Music Marathon

By Event Previews and Reviews, Uncategorized

The Music industry unites to: ‘Save the Amazon’ on June 26/27/28.

 

As the destruction of Brazil’s Amazon accelerates due to illegal deforestation and forest fires, the 3 days live stream marathon ‘Save the Amazon’ aims to connect and inform international audiences about the current situation of the natural landmark through music and art.

Meoko and Serialism Records will come together in the weekend 26-27-28 of June along with a team of worldwide celebrated artists and media partners, for the first edition of a unique and heart-felt musical marathon to raise awareness for the future of one of the world’s most vital ecosystems.

During these troubling times, the pandemic has made it difficult for people around the globe to be aware of the latest development in the Amazon forest.

Home to some of the last Indigenous Tribes and traditional communities, the world’s largest rain forest is vital for keeping our climate stable. But with industrial exploitation and forest fires ravaging the region, the Amazon forest is facing unprecedented threats by a greedy industry backed by the present government. Now, with the double threat of fires and Covid-19, indigenous communities and many unique species of animals are in even more danger.

Currently, the Brazilian Congress is close to voting a law derivative from the decree MP910, which allows people that illegally logged or squatted on protected federal lands before December 2018, to purchase such lands at reduced prices.
This law directly relates to and fosters the practice of `land-grabbing´, which could lead to more massive deforestation. Imazon, (a non-profit environmentalist group) found that the measure could lead to a loss of an additional 16,000 square kilometers of the rainforest by 2027.

Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest rose more than 88% in June 2019 compared with the same month in 2018, and more than doubled in January 2020 compared with the same month in 2019.

 

Indigenous tribes are in great danger, firstly because of the pandemic and secondly, with the political agenda that revolves around their habitat and land. It is time to connect despite our confinement and express our concern for the Amazon as one, the world may not recover from this catastrophic situation. We must act, now.
