Electric Unity DJ Live Stream will run from 1:00-9:00 PM EST on Saturday, July 11th, 2020 via Twitch before a virtual screening of the 2014 documentary Electric Roots: The Detroit Sound Project. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Black Lives Matter.
The digital event is a collaboration between the Michigan Electronic Music Collective and the TAROTE’ Foundation. Among the Detroit acts billed are Stacey Hotwaxx Hale, Reggie Dokes and Whodat. Representing Cape Town will be Niskerone and Killer Robot.
