Sophie Billington of Funraising sat down not long ago for an interview with Lawrence Collins from the Manchester-based DJ collective Off Beat. They talk about Off Beat‘s beginnings, how they’ve grown in their time playing across some of Manchester’s best venues and Lawrence also gives his take on the ever-present issue of homelessness our city faces and how music and charity can help bridge the gap on such social issues. Is DJ Online Banking this generation’s answer to Bob Geldof? Maybe.
Funraising’s next event is Easy on the Dijon, an acid house experience complete with insane visual and decor. We will be spreading the love as well as raising awareness and giving all proceeds from the night to Mustard Tree, a charity that combats poverty and homelessness here in Greater Manchester. Mustard Tree help those in need to gain the skills and self-confidence to realise their full potential. Tickets for EOTD are currently going for £3 over on Skiddle, grab one for you and your mates here.
