Last weekend, we saw a few DJs speaking on “A POSITIVE SPIN,” with pictures of DJs like A-Trak, Tittsworth, Valentino Khan, and many others hitting The Optimist Youth Home on December 14, giving 50 youths (aged 13-18) tutorials in the arts of DJing and production. We’d had no idea what was going on, but apparently this was a bigger part of A Positive Spin, which is an online auction that’s aim is to raise funds for Give A Beat (an organization that thrives on building social and community responsibility through the world’s best in dance music) and We Are The Movement, which looks to help at-risk youths “increase their emotional intelligence, self-awareness and confidence by encouraging them to explore outlets of creative self-expression, within the accepting environment that the positive and loving dance music community creates.”
The auction has been running since December 9, and will be ended on December 22, so you still have time to bid on some amazing prizes. You can get two general admission tickets to Spring Awakening, tickets to see Zeds Dead in Pomona, Fool’s Gold merch, a Pioneer 1 DDJ-SX controller, a $100 gift card to Traxsource, and much, much more. Know that it’s going to a great cause, and do your part: bid on some quality stuff!
