Check out the just released Funk Aid for Africa www.funkaid.com, produced by dubSpot, compiled & mixed by Dj OBaH. 100% of the sale of the CD goes to NextAid.
Overview of CD
dubSpot, New York City’s one-of-a-kind electronic music production and DJ training institute, has undertaken its first nationwide philanthropic project with a series of charitable mix CDs.
The first, Funk Aid for Africa, will benefit Los Angeles-based humanitarian organization, NextAid. An inspired collage of funk, soul, and Latin tunes created by DJ OBaH, Funk Aid for Africa features songs by twenty different artists including Ticklah, Ursula Rucker, King Britt, Chico Mann, The Lions, and Ocote Soul Sounds. This series of dubSpot-produced benefit compilations will raise funds for various projects by harnessing the positive power of music.
The goal for this compilation is to raise awareness and much needed funds for African children orphaned by the AIDS crisis. Dan Giove, the founder of dubSpot, has always believed that education is fundamentally steeped in the ethics of altruism and selflessness. Much of the musical community shares in this feeling; it’s just not about the individual. It is in this spirit that all of the musicians involved with the Funk Aid mix have generously donated their art and their time in deference to a greater cause.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this compilation are going directly to charity. Funds will be going towards the construction of a “green” sports facility at a community center in Dennilton. The sports facility will be in addition to the 10 structures already completed in the eco-friendly center.
