THE PRODIGY, CHASE & STATUS AND 19 OTHER ARTISTS TEAM UP FOR MENTAL HEALTH CHARITY ALBUM; MIND STATE VOL. 1
LONDON, June 8th, 2018 – In the slipstream of many empowering mental health campaigns around the world striving for a positive change, 17 artists combine forces to raise awareness for mental health & wellbeing by putting forth an epic drum & bass compilation album titled ‘MIND STATE Vol. 1’. The album, including nothing but exclusives, is linked to the very first ever 24-hour festival of Mental Health, Wellbeing & Music; Getahead, to take place in London, June 13th.
With over twenty years in the music industry as both MC VERSE and part of the platinum selling band Pendulum, Ben Verse has witnessed first-hand what effect the highs and lows, pressures and strains, a life in the music industry can have on a person. It’s with this life experience and awareness that he approached AEI Group and Getahead with the concept of the ‘MIND STATE’ compilation. Former Pendulum member Ben Verse explains the aim of the album as the following: “To fuse the legends with the new school and create a unique compilation of upfront drum & bass tracks, whilst shining a light and making a statement in the fight against mental illness.”
Including exclusive tracks from the likes of The Prodigy, D Bridge & Skeptical, Chase & Status, Sub Focus and Artificial Intelligence, the album ‘MIND STATE Vol. 1’ reflects the respect and unity that characterises the bass community in the UK and across the world. Boasting over 15 tracks, the compilation album features both tracks from prominent artists as well as up & coming new talents within the scene. Dedicated to the very first ever 24-hour festival of Mental Health, Wellbeing & Music; Getahead in the UK, all profits of the unique musical project go to charity support those struggling with mental health. Out today, ‘MIND STATE Vol. 1’ represents a sonic journey celebrating life and raising awareness for those who are struggling and in need for support.
All earnings of the unique compilation album ‘MIND STATE Vol. 1’ will go to charities linked to the Getahead Festival, which will take place in Omeara London on the 13th of June. From all profits, 50% of the album proceeds will go to Getahead Festival partner Help Musicians UK (HMUK) and its Music Minds Matter mental health service and support line for the music community
