In between the sets will be discussions on the topics of depression, sleeping habits, productivity during the pandemic, creativity and more challenges facing the electronic music community and the world more broadly.
Joshua Donaldson, Founder of When the Music Stops (WTMS) said:
With loneliness, depression, and suicide on the rise, Beatport is becoming a leader in normalizing these conversations. When The Music Stops is honored to collaborate on such a powerful initiative. These issues affect all races and all religions. Together we can make an impact and let people know ‘You Are Not Alone’. We will continue to do everything we can to be there for you, we understand and relate to your struggles.
Beatport’s CEO, Robb McDaniels added:
These are trying times for our industry. Now more than ever taking care of ourselves – our minds, our wellbeing and, the wellbeing of others, is truly vital,” said “Mental health has been one of the most talked about topics in our industry for years, and this is a global topic that should continue to be discussed and destigmatized. Everyone at Beatport takes this topic very seriously and will continue to bring visibility to it.
Silentmode provides masks for breathing workouts, powernaps and musical mental fitness training and will host two discussions “The Problem – Mental health, how did we get here and what do we do?” featuring Ari Peralta (Arigami) and Jenni Cochrane (Get Ahead) and “The Solution – Using the power of music as a preventive mental health solution” with Tom Middleton, Stuart Sandeman and Bradley Young. During the broadcast a chillout room will be available on Beatport’s Twitch channel.
