Bass Gives Me Hope: G-Buck (Chicago Subterranean)
Philadelphia-based producer and DJ/turntablist G-Buck is paying a visit to the Windy City (Chicago) for the Bass Gives Me Hope performance at Subterranean on Friday, May 26. Supporting acts include Light Em Up, Jsquared, Elevated. React Presents has partnered with Hope for the Day for this special musical showcase.
The 27 year old DJ has released tracks on powerhouse labels including Mad Decent, DimMak, NEST and OWSLA. G-Buck has remixed songs by dance music heavy hitters such as Valentino Khan‘s ‘Deep Down Low’, Aussie queen Anna Lunoe ‘Radioactive’ and Major Lazer‘s ‘Powerful’ featuring Ellie Goulding.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. [43.8 million or 18.5 percent] experience mental illness in a given year. NAMI also highlights that individuals living with serious mental illness face an increased risk of having chronic medical conditions. Music is the glue that binds cultures together helping mold values and identities while creating a platform for self-expression. Music affects culture as a group, and also individuals who make up groups and subgroups. It influences people’s moods and can help heal the mind and body.
Hope for the Day recognizes music’s importance and the role it plays in everyday life knowing that it goes beyond an art form. The organization supports suicide prevention and mental health education through self-expression and seeks to help normalize conversations. All ticket proceeds from the show will be donated to Hope For The Day. For those who can’t make it out that night donations can be done online.
