Throughout this last year, any avid fan of dance music is more than likely familiar with the electronic music-producing duo, Candyland. As most of you all know, a little over a month ago a community in downtown Boston was tragically attacked by bombings and shootings. Days later Josie and Ethan were asked to reschedule a performance they were booked for near the area that was struck. This week, in an effort to support the Boston bombing victims and community, the duo decided to go above and beyond just rescheduling the event. They are donating to ‘The One Fund Boston‘ 3 different ways:
1) Tonight they’ve released an exclusive new track featuring Stan SB called ‘The Secret’ and all proceeds go directly to ‘The One Fund Boston‘.
2) Tomorrow Candyland will be performing an online Mixify Charity event where everyone is invited to listen and donate to ‘The One Fund Boston’.

3) Thursday Candyland will be performing in Boston at Rumor to play a charity event where 100% of the proceeds will go to ‘The One Fund Boston‘.
After one of the most brutal acts of domestic terrorism since September 11th, we at Dance Music Northwest are moved that artists in this world like Candyland are willing to drop everything to come to the aid of our friends and family in Beantown. It surely will be a series of shows not to be missed, and a huge boost for the hearts and minds of so many people directly affected by this tragedy and the ongoing process of healing. We wish them all the best.
