Over the weekend Beatport teamed up with streaming platform Twitch to put on the 34-hour live show known as Beatport ReConnect. The stream showcased sets from some of the biggest DJs on the planet including Carl Cox, Pate Tong, Nina Kraviz, A-Trak, Nicole Moudaber, ANNA and Chris Leibing.

More than just a good time, the show was presented as a fundraiser for the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and the Association for Electronic Music's COVID-19 Hardship Fund.

Set up specifically to administer donations from this event to help struggling AFEM member companies retain lower-earning workers who would otherwise be let go, and to direct funds to individuals within the membership in most need of urgent financial help.

If you would like to support the cause, donations are still being accepted here.

The dance music scene has been hit particularly hard by the global pandemic, with nightclubs around the world shuttered and DJs cooped up at home. Despite the current hardships, it's reassuring to see that our scene can still come together and raise money for those most at risk in our industry.

You can watch Carl Cox's set above, and check out the rest of the sets over on Beatport's YouTube Channel.
