Beatport ReConnect x When The Music Stops: #YouAreNotAlone
So far in 2020, more than 30% of adults have experienced symptoms of anxiety, depression, or severe loneliness. With the shuttering of dance floors worldwide, members of the electronic music community feel more shut off and isolated than ever. But this doesn’t mean the music and the solidarity experienced on dance floors have to cease.
We’ve joined forces with When the Music Stops — a nonprofit organization focused on combating depression, anxiety, burnout, and suicide through community support — as well as Silentmode, which is a revolutionary Peak Performance company using the combination of guided breathwork, music, science, and technology to develop the tools and techniques to help people reduce their resting heart rate and enable happier, healthier lives. With this new collaboration, Beatport is proud to present a new take on its famed ReConnect livestream series with #YouAreNotAlone. Taking place Saturday, November 7th, this 24-hour-plus program will feature live sets from world-renowned DJs along with a multitude of educational segments surrounding mental health from artists and wellness professionals alike.
Throughout the program, viewers can enjoy performances from acts such as Adam Beyer, Boys Noize, Ida Engberg, Kaskade, Kevin Knapp, LOUISAHHH, Mason Maynard, Scuba, Shinedoe, Yousef, and many more. Alongside these sets, attendees can lock into intimate discussions and Q&A’s with artists like Ceri and Rebekah, as well as experts in the field of mental health, including wellness music / Breathonics composer, and sleep coach, Tom Middleton, psychotherapist Dr. Aida Vazin, AFEM’s Tristan Hunt, leading breathwork expert Stuart Sandeman and Silentmode founder Bradley Dowding-Young.
In addition, Silentmode will curate a Breathonics chill-out room on Beatport’s Twitch channel, where fans can experience calming tracks and relax in between the music and educational segments over the 24-hour period.
Throughout these talks, we’ll be offering tips and resources on topics such as depression, sleeping habits, productivity during the pandemic, creativity, and the challenges facing the electronic music scene and the world in general right now.
