While the debate about race relations has certainly heated up in the dance music world since the terrifying riots in Charlottesville with DJs speaking out, techno legend Maceo Plex is looking to take action by throwing a free party in Charlottesville to “promote & dance for unity & equality” and to fight “neo nazis.”


While the initial tweet was made a day after the unrest in Charlottesville, he’s since followed it up with another tweet asking for local promoters to join him in his cause earlier today.

Support from around the dance music community has been swift as well with DC promoter Nu Androids, DJs Soul Clap, Coyu, Matt Medved, Nick Murphy, Modeselektor and more all ready to support.

Hopefully the next update you’ll read about this will be an official announcement from Maceo Plex and some of the other DJs on this thread.
