#BeatsforChange from Vancouver’s Dj Zeida and crew are back! This thursday features a mix by Sal Martin (Cascade) and Julien Mier. This show is dedicated to bring awareness to the “Landfill Harmonic” movement.
Landfill Harmonic was created to help bring music to children in the barrios of Paraguay through instruments made from trash. Though ingenuity a humble garbage picker creates these instruments from recycled materials. With these instruments, a youth orchestra has formed, and the lives of these children now have new hopes and dreams. For more information you can watch this video here, or visit the KickStarter page and help with the cause.
Check out the massive talent that is Vancouver’s own DjZeida at his Soundcloud and his Beats for Change Mixcloud!
This mix is dedicated to a wonderful and beautiful woman I call Moomers for her birthday. It has actually been in the works for the last 4+ months, and has gone through many processes of finding the right combination of tracks, testing, starting from scratch and finally coming to a happy place where it is worthy to be unleashed into the invisible tubes of the interwebs; just in time for Lady M’s special day! I hope you enjoy it and have fun with its fun tunes and head bopping beats!

Hold onto your winter mits! Siloet’s newest single titled “The Score” has arrived! As usual Siloet continues to deliver amazing music, and this beautiful track is no exception! A smooth melody and a mellow vibe; it has honestly been stuck in my head the last couple of days since its release on Soundcloud, Dec. 9th. To boot, the guys have provided a FREE Download link where you can get this wicked track!

An amazing project by the brilliant minds behind Beats for Change. Tacloban HOPE was released on Nov. 17th and is a fund raising album created in response to the disaster in Tacloban. Here are the words from Beats for Change describing the album themselves:
“This album is fundraising response to what happened after one of the most powerful Typhoons on record hit Tacloban and the people of the Philippines.
Beats for Change has put together a worldwide roster of heavy hitting music producers who have joined forces and put together a jam packed album of unreleased instrumental music.”
All proceeds go directly to their partner GlobalMedic.ca (“GlobalMedic provides emergency relief to those affected by natural disasters and complex emergencies”). They have been on the ground since the disaster hit providing clean drinking water and medical supplies, more info on them on their Facebook page and at their website: GlobalMedic.ca.
You can support the relief efforts through Beats for Change’s Tacloban HOPE album at their Bandcamp page. The album hosts amazing songs and chill sounds through 23 tracks.
