I Love Acid is a Manchester-based club night and record label committed to everything TB-303. In our excitement over the beginnings of ‘Easy on the Dijon’, our upcoming acid house night for local homelessness charity Mustard Tree, we’ve just come across Acid Relief which was made in aid of the DEC‘s East Africa Crisis appeal.
‘Acid Relief is ‘a compilation of acid house, techno and electro… The artists have contributed tracks for free, and neither Balkan Vinyl nor I Love Acid will take any cut from any money raised.
You can choose to download for free, or to donate either via. the Bandcamp ‘pay-what-you-choose’ or direct on our JustGiving page, where you can see how much has been raised so far.’
Listening to this, though Ph levels are low, your happiness levels will be high. One of the great things about charity compilations is that their support can be ongoing, as can their enjoyment.
Since it began, Acid Relief has raised £1276.98 and although the last public JustGiving donation was two years ago, it may have raised even more. This doesn’t have to be the end of this project, you can still donate here.
Though the East Africa Crisis Appeal was launched in 2011, The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) is still taking vital action as well as donations, so find out more here: How Life-Saving Supplies Are Offering Hope in East Africa.
I Love Acid is returning to Manchester on the 14th of April at everyone’s favorite venue, Hidden. The lineup features DJ BORING, Luca Lozano, Jozef K, Jon Dasilva & Posthuman to name a few. Tickets are still on first release on Resident Advisor here.
