Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake on 12th January 2010 which killed over 230,000 people and has left many more displaced who are currently living in tented shanty towns. Haiti is not only the poorest island in the Caribbean but quite possibly the poorest in the western hemisphere. A lot of people were moved by the recent events in Haiti and have made contributions towards the relief event; however Haiti Appeal Project would like to emphasise that the island still needs our help, and the Haitians should not be forgotten, especially as they approach the rainy season. With this single cause in mind Haiti Appeal Project is hoping to generate funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) by hosting a charity psytrance, techno, dub and trance club night on Friday 9th April at Club Colosseum, SW8 and by releasing a triple CD ‘Haiti Appeal Project’ spanning techno, trance and down-tempo electronic on Monday 12th April.
Haiti Appeal Project has been put together by a global community of like-minded electronic music lovers. Make a difference and please buy the CD or attend the club night. They're hoping that this message will be passed on generating more sales... For a mere 5 minutes of your life and the cost of a round of drinks you could be contributing to a new school or hospital in devastated Haiti.
They’ve pulled together an array of groundbreaking music which features artists such as Extrawelt, Alan Parsons Project (feat. Shpongle and David Gilmour), Eat Static, 1 Giant Leap, James Harcourt, Younger Brother, Perfect Stranger, Minilogue, Gaudi & Greg Hunter, Dnox & Beckers, Fiord, Sensient, Spektre, Burn In Noise, Entheogenic, Zen Lemonade vs System 7, Saiko Pod, Fearsome Engine, Protoculture, Saiko Pod, Dickster, 4D, HoeHLE, The Wave Farmers, Freakulizer, M-Theory, Jay Selway & Christian Smith, Resonant Dawn, Antonio Testa, Switchbox, Logica and Zumbi, Friends Electric, Astronivo, Riktam & Bansi, Dimitri Nakov, Gabe, Tron vs Glitch, 1NTT (Tul & Total Eclipse), KiloWatts, John Monkman, Indigo Child, Warp Technique, Dyno, Avalon vs G-Nome & Triangle and more!
The triple CD will feature mostly exclusive and previously unreleased material. There is also a digital download bundle collection of 38 tracks and 3 exclusive mixes by Gaudi, Shane Gobi & FØRM (Ans & Allaby). The CDs are available to download for just £12.99 from all normal online digital outlets such as Beatport and iTunes with all proceeds going towards the DEC for Haiti Appeal Project.

Let’s get together and make a difference!
